This Month at Cereals & Grains Association
Cereal & Grain 19
Cereals & Grains 19 was a big success with 695 attendees, from more than 24 countries, representing more than 300 different organizations! While exploring the Global Food System, we covered a multitude of topics categorized under the daily themes of Food Security, Innovation in the Value Chain; and Health and Wellness. We look forward to seeing you in Calgary, October 25–27, 2020.
Science & Trends
This issue focuses on innovation in food production and processing, from farm to fork, and how powerful new technologies are being applied in the food industry.
New research suggests that controlled sprouting of wheat grain may increase consumer acceptability of whole grain wheat foods without negatively impacting bread quality. Subscribing members, log in to Cereal Chemistry and read the article in the September/October issue.
At the Cereals & Grains 19 symposium on CRISPR, Jon Entine profiled resources available on the Genetic Literacy Project (GLP) and a soon-to-be-available interactive database on global human and agricultural gene-editing regulations. The GLP aids the public, scientists, industry, media, and policymakers in understanding the biotechnology revolution and promoting science literacy. It is funded by foundations and individual contributions. You can help by donating online.
