To simply put, food science is the study of food. It involves the study of the physical, biological and chemical nature of food. Food science also comprises evaluation of food processing, packaging and safety. Food Composition Databases exist, which lists detailed information sets on the nutritional value and components of a particular food, which is its carbohydrate, protein, fat, minerals, vitamins and fiber content. The properties of food are our concern and its make-up forms the core of the topics of discussion at Food Summit 2019.
A very recent development, food irradiation involves the use of ionizing radiations as treatment. It is said to be one of the most potent modes of ensuring food safety and additionally increases the shelf-life of food. The most important advantage of irradiation is that it kills all micro-organisms that would otherwise cause foodborne illnesses in humans, which is responsible for 5000 deaths globally each year, despite the high standards we have reached with respect to food safety. At Food Summit 2019, this special track aims to discuss the latest developments in this field.
Irregularity in diet results in eating disorders. Commonly, there are two types of such disorders – anorexia & bulimia. While anorexia involves eating too less, bulimia is caused due to overeating. These disorders are effected upon by mental health, with fear of gaining weight resulting in anorexia. Bulimia on the other hand occurs to people who binge eats, mostly junk food. This too has mental implications as the affected individual has no control over themself to prevent overeating. Eating disorders result in poor health due to discrepancies in the diet. Anorexic people are severely under-weight while overeating causes obesity. Apart from eating disorders, unbalanced components in the diet also lead to cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A person taking in high volumes of carbohydrates in the form of sugars in their diet can suffer from Diabetes. Excess cholesterol is deposited in the blood vessels, increasing the risk of vascular or cardiovascular diseases, which might even lead to heart attacks!
This track deals with the use of biotechnology in food production and processing industry. Biotechnology has a long history of use in the food industry. For centuries, microbes have been used to manufacture bread, dairy products and alcohol through fermentation. The food biotechnology industry received a major boost with the advancements in the field of genetic engineering. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are now widely used around the world. Through genetic engineering techniques, the genetic makeup of the food composites can be modified to obtain desirable traits. However, it has been met by resistance from several sections of the society and questions are being asked about their viability and effects on human health. The Global Summit on Food and Nutrition invites researchers to present their findings and discuss the various applications of biotechnology in the food industry.
With an ever-increasing population, it is being predicted that agriculture will not be able to sustain the demand for food by as early as 2050. Single Cell Proteins (SCP) is one of the disruptive developments in modern food industry. As the name suggests, SCPs are single celled or unicellular microorganism cell mass, which is dried and used as protein supplements. It has a high nutritional value since its rich in vitamins and nutrients however high nucleic acid content makes it unsuitable as a replacement to food and is currently limited to use as supplements. Latest developments in the research on SCPs, their bright future prospects and uses are included in the Food Summit 2019 agenda.
A dietary supplement is a product that supplements the food. It is generally consumed as a tablet or tonic, which contain nutrients, vitamins or any other essential substance that is useful to our body, oftentimes to simply increase the consumption of the same. Probiotics are among the most common dietary supplements. These are made of live bacteria and they improve digestion. Dietary supplements are gaining more popularity of late since they are rich in nutritive value and are often recommended by doctors to recovering patients.
A new discipline of study, foodomics incorporates the use of omics technologies to correlate the fields of food and nutrition. It involves high throughput analyses of data from genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics to improve the understanding of the effect of food on health and technology. Although research in this field is very limited currently due to slow progress in development, Food Summit 2019 invites the submission of work related to it since foodomics is the way to the future.
Nutrients are broadly classified into two types – Macronutrients and Micronutrients. Macronutrients are those which are required by our body in large amounts (carbohydrates, proteins, lipids) while micronutrients are required in small amounts (vitamins and minerals). Macronutrients are responsible for structural development and energy requirement. Nutrition physiology is the study of the effect of the nutrients on the body’s metabolism and how it functions.
A comparatively new branch, nutritional genomics or nutrigenomics amalgamate the concepts of nutrition and genomics to study their inter-relationships particularly with respect to disease. It encompasses the response of our body to food at a molecular level. Nutrigenomics also finds application in studying the inheritance of nutrition and diet related disorders.
Case Studies act as informative examples to people who might also face similar problems. Generally, case studies should detail a particular medical case, reporting the background of the patient. They should discuss investigations undertaken in order to determine a diagnosis or differentiate between possible diagnoses, and should indicate the type of treatment the patient underwent as a result. In one piece we can conclude that case studies are a useful and informative part of every doctor or physician's medical education, which actually encouraged us to include this track in the Global Summit on Food and Nutrition conference which is going to be held at Paris, France.
An unusual reaction by the immune system to certain food or components of food is called a food allergy. Common symptoms include itching, reddening, rashes, vomiting or even diarrhoea. Although any food can set off an allergic reaction, milk, eggs and nuts are the most common sources. People allergic to certain food must ensure that they compensate for the nutrients by consuming alternatives in their diet.
Nutrition education is any blend of instructional courses, in the midst of natural backings, intended to encourage voluntary reception of food choices and various nutrient and food related practices contributing to good health. This track calls for professionals in the healthcare sector to talk about the importance of nutrition in their sector and the importance of education about diet among their staff.
