1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Premeeting Workshop: Healthy Grains: Implications of the Rheology of Digestive Processes*
The rheology of the human digestive system is critically important to many health and food phenomena, such as the physiological benefit of cereal fibers and the bioavailability of antioxidants. Processes such as chewing, swallowing, and peristaltic actions of the stomach and intestines involve very complex rheology. In vivo analyses are invasive and expensive, so there is a real need for in vitro models that will accurately characterize the digestive processes of cereal foods. This workshop will present the state of the science regarding gut rheology as well as spark discussion on future paths of research. The ultimate objective is to gain consensus regarding common methods of analysis for sound evaluations of the health benefits of cereal foods. Check #3 on the registration form. Fee: $50
1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Leadership Forum
1:30 – 4:30 p.m. Premeeting Workshop: Green Technology and Carbon Footprint—Impact on Foods and Feed Processing*
As global warming concerns take center stage and fuel and energy costs remain volatile, food processors in North America and Europe, including the cereal-based industry, are making efforts toward reducing environmental impact and decreasing the use of electricity, natural gas, coal, diesel fuel, and other conventional energy sources. Efforts to adopt green technologies and reduce the carbon footprint make good business sense, are environmentally laudable, and will enable industry to meet rapidly evolving regulations. This premeeting workshop focuses on the basics of carbon trading, regulatory issues and initiatives to track the carbon footprint in food, animal feed, and ethanol industries, and opportunities to reduce this footprint from raw materials to the final product. Fee: $50
