Anne Vissers, senior bakery scientist at Campden BRI, said:

"Consumers are demanding sustainable ingredients and alternative packaging. Ingredients, such as palm oil and soya, need to be sourced and used in an ethical and sustainable way and the food industry needs to develop strategies to reduce the use of scarce resources such as phosphate. Additionally, research has established the importance of dietary fibre for gut health and there has been an increasing demand from industry for accurate and reliable methods to determine fibre properties and quantities."

The seminar will provide an opportunity to network with other professionals from the industry and will be of interest to bakers, product developers, nutritionists, environmentalists, students and anyone interested in health and sustainability.
