Track 2: Food Safety, Food Security, Food Preservation, Quality Standard and Food Systems Management
Feeding ever increasing world population to satiety has become the most daunting task of the century in the aftermath of ever increasing demand for food, shrinking the extent of arable lands, decreasing potential food production from natural resources, global warming, pollution, and consequences of human interventions. Hence, food safety and food security is of prime concern in most part of the globe for centuries. Today more than ever, food products regularly cross national boundaries at every stage of the supply chain, from farm to fork. ISO International Standards create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the same recipe when it comes to food quality, safety and efficiency.ISO provides a platform for developing practical tools through common understanding and cooperation with all It includes risk assessment of both biological and non-biological hazards in food; food allergies and intolerances, rapid techniques for online control and by different food preservation methods.
Track 3: Food Physical Chemistry
Food physical chemistry is essential to understanding the behavior of foods. New or novel raw materials including bioactive compounds, ingredients and technologies; molecular, micro, macro and nano-structure; food function and physico-chemical reactions in food formulations and relationships between diet and disease.
Track 4: Food Processing and Packaging Technologies
Food processing and packaging is just to meet the productivity demands and to adopt sophisticated automation, control and monitoring methods and techniques. Topic includes that significant amount of processing and packaging research and developments involve study of automation, control and monitoring. Therefore, besides describing various stages of food processing, provides a detail review on many subtopics including recent advances in smart packaging techniques, the role of nanotechnology in packaging, various types of packaging machineries including the application of robotics, package printing techniques, conventional automation and control tools, novel food processing and packaging technologies etc.
Track 5: Industrial Application of Food Technology
Industrial application of Food Technology in the different type of food industry like fish processing, meat processing, sugar industry, dairy industry etc. We must feed a human population that is expected to grow to more than nine billion by mid-century. However, there are complex and interrelated scientific, social, political and ethical questions regarding the role of biotechnology in the food supply. This track discusses diverse perspectives on sustainable food production systems in terms of challenges, opportunities, success stories, barriers and risks associated with agricultural and food biotechnology. The effects of biotechnology on the environment, ethical and moral issues, potential changes to government policies and economics, and social implications are summarised. This track will interest students, professionals and researchers from the areas of bioengineering, agriculture and ecosystem science to economics and political science
Track 6: Fermentation Technology, Bioprocess and Cell Culture
Fermentation Technology emphasizes the application of biological and engineering principles to problems involving microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems. This track includes biological and biochemical technology, perspectives on biological systems with industrial practices. The value of the cell culture industry is experiencing extraordinary growth, with a projected value of around $24 billion by 2018. Providing a comprehensive round up of the latest in cell culture and biological processing called bioprocess, this track cover subjects spanning from raw materials to bioreactor design, instrumentation, control and automation and novel cell line development technologies, to advances in process development and strategies to deal with moving to clinical trial and manufacture.
Track 7: Food, Beverage Marketing & Policy
The food and beverage industry spends nearly $2 billion annually to foods and beverages market to children and adolescents in the U.S., reaching young people in the places where they live, learn and play. A report from the Institute of Medicine concluded that food advertising affects children's food choices, food purchase requests, diets and health. Although there has been some progress in reducing the amount of food marketing directed at children, the majority of foods marketed to children remains unhealthy. This track also aims to explore economic, social, biophysical, technological and institutional drivers of current and future global food security. The topics list includes, inter alia: enabling trade and market food policies for local and global food security; sustainable intensification of food production systems; novel ways of feeding 9 billion; land sparing, land sharing and trade-offs; agricultural production as feedstock for renewables; lost harvest and wasted food; nutritional security; and labelling, certifying and striving for quality and sustainability of food production.
Track 8: Beverage Quality Analysis And Effect
Fermented beverages have been produced around the world for generations, but in recent times these predominantly traditional beverages have been regarded chiefly as premium specialty products. However, as consumers seek out all-natural products, fermented soft drinks have found new popularity.
In recent times, there has been growing recognition of the key role of foods and beverages in disease prevention and treatment. Thus, the production and consumption of functional foods has gained much importance as they provide a health benefit beyond the basic nutritional functions. At present, beverages are by far the most active functional food category because of convenience and possibility to meet consumer demands for container contents, size, shape, and appearance, as well as ease of distribution and storage for refrigerated and shelf-stable products.
Track 9: Food Law
The General Food Law Regulation ensures a high level of protection of human life and consumers' interests in relation to food, while ensuring the effective functioning of the internal market. Although food businesses are generally responsible for ensuring the safety of the food they produce, governments usually consider that this has to be ensured through the use of food legislation. This track provides an overview of the main objectives of food law, the main elements that the legislation covers and its structure. A brief section considers how food law is key to food safety requires rapid methods for food hygiene inspection, guidelines for food safety in standards & regulations basis.
Track 10: Nutritional Management and Nutritional Deficiencies
Nutritional metabolism encompass studies in obesity, diabetes, lipidemias, metabolic syndrome and exercise physiology that have an underlying basis in metabolism. Nutritional Disorders include diseases that affect endocrine glands (thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, adrenals, thymus, islets of pancreas, ovaries and testicles), nutritional deficiencies such as malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies, and metabolism disorders such related lipid metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, amino acid metabolism, plasma protein metabolism and other metabolic disorders. This also includes Public Health Nutrition provides an dissemination of research and scholarship aimed at understanding the causes of, and approaches and solutions to nutrition-related public health achievements, situations and problems around the world.
