1 st International Conference on Emerging Trends in Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals

Most food can be regarded as functional in lieu of the fact that it provides both nutrients, and energy required for the sustenance of life. However, functional foods and nutraceuticals (FFN), are defined, and highly nutritious dietary foods, significant for their potential of preventing and/or reversing diseased states. Increasing research and development of knowledge regarding the association between various dietary factors and health has resulted in enhanced consumption of these foods, in particular, in countries with an increasingly aging population demographic, and rising healthcare costs. Nevertheless, considerable research is required to gain greater insight into the characterization of these foods, their functionality, purported health benefits, efficacy, safety in the context of toxicological studies, and nutrient-nutrient interactions.

School of Food and Agricultural Sciences (SFAS) at the University of Management and Technology, Lahore, a pioneering and leading institute in the domain of Food Science and Technology, and Human Nutrition and Dietetics education in the private sector, is organizing the “1st International Conference on Emerging Trends in Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals (ICETFFN) 2023)” with the core objective to present, introduce, and propagate the innovative ideas related to the recent advancements, knowledge, technological developments, and contemporary trends in the domain of Food Science and Technology, Human Nutrition and Dietetics, and other allied disciplines.

ICETFFN 2023 will be an excellent opportunity for pre-eminent scientists, researchers, clinicians, practitioners, public health professionals, other allied health professionals, industry experts, policymakers, food industry, and pharmaceutic/nutraceutical industry to get together for informed discourse, share cutting-edge research, and exchange ideas concerning emerging and contemporary trends and issues in food science and nutrition, as well as for the establishment of long-term and dynamic linkages aimed at future collaborative efforts for developing novel and innovative solutions in the context of production and development of functional foods and use of nutraceuticals in addressing the malnutrition and undermatron conditions and associated degenerative diseases, therapeutics, food systems, food regulations, community nutrition, and public health.
