The 6th International Dietary Fibre Conference 2015 (DF15) took place in Paris, France 1-3 June 2015.
DF15 continues the highly successful series of the earlier DF Conferences as seen during the past 5 editions, from Dublin in 2000, Noordwijkerhout in 2003, Helsinki in 2006, Vienna in 2009 to the latest in Rome 2012: integration of nutritional and consumer science with food technology, product development, analysis and legal aspects. DF15 is the occasion where scientists, regulators and industry representatives from all over the world can meet in a unique location where participants can develop modern ideas while drawing inspiration from the beauty of Paris.
DF15 covers all sources of dietary fibre, focussing on fibre functionality and health; benefits of dietary fibre through nutrition science, product development and consumer education. Including reviews by authoritative speakers on health effects of fibre and new insights in their role as prebiotics and in mental performance, DF15 therefore offers a wide forum for all disciplines and industrial sectors involved in the research, exploitation and utilization of dietary fibre. A rich table top exhibition of products, machinery and scientific tools contributes to giving the participants a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in the field of dietary fibre.
We look forward to welcoming you in Paris!
