LOW CALORIE FOODS, BEVERAGES AND SWEETENERS

CAN THEY REALLY CONTRIBUTE TO A HEALTHIER FUTURE?

Register NOW for this conference!

With more than half of the adult population in the European Union overweight or obese, it is easy to see why calorie reduction is high up on the agenda for those involved in food and health.

By delivering a sweet taste with almost no calories, low calorie sweeteners provide a useful means of reducing calories and have made it possible for low calorie foods, beverages and sweeteners to be part of everyone’s diet. Yet despite the obvious benefits that foods and beverages with low calorie sweeteners have, some perceptions of these products can still raise questions.

This one day conference, organised by the International Sweeteners Association, will address topics such as our desire for sweet taste, sweeteners and appetite, their role in weight management and the safety of low calorie sweeteners. It will also challenge some of the myths that surround low calorie sweeteners – do they really make you fat? Or can you overdose on sweeteners?

The conference will be hosted by Stefan Gates, a food adventurer and television presenter. Stefan presented ‘E-Numbers: An Edible Adventure’, the myth-busting food science series broadcast on BBC2, and wrote an accompanying book.

Confirmed speakers include: Prof. Andy Renwick, an internationally recognised expert on the safety of low calorie sweeteners (University of Southampton, UK); Dr. Tommy Visscher, specialised in epidemiological research into the prevention of obesity (Vrije Universiteit, Netherlands); Dr Margaret Ashwell, expert in nutrition and former member of the UK Government’s Food Advisory Committee (UK); Mr Joris Van Loco, Director of the Food, Medicines, and Consumer Safety Group (Scientific Institute of Public Health, Belgium) and Prof. John Brewer, specialist in sports nutrition (University of Bedfordshire, UK).
