Food Reformulation

17-18 June 2021: Online Conference on Food Reformulation - Regulation and Marketing

Reformulating processed food products regarding salt, sugar, or fat content is a highly promising strategy to provide consumers with healthier alternatives within usual purchased categories. However, consumer acceptance, food processor and retailer actions, as well as regulatory approaches face multidimensional constraints and obstacles that are not well understood yet. This conference aims at bringing together researchers from relevant fields such as consumer science, economics, marketing, food and sensory science, and law. Our objective is to stimulate interdisciplinary development and discussion of scientific insights related to healthy and sustainable food reformulation as well as consequences for practical implementation in business and policymaking. more

Texture matters

9 June 2021, 15.45 - 17.00 CET

E3S Children WG webinar: A cross-national project on texture preference, food neophobia and healthy eating in European children

Texture is one of the main drivers of food acceptance and rejection, especially for young consumers. This sensory modality is also influential in modulating food consumption, being associated with eating rate, nutritional status and health. Despite this, individual differences in texture perception and preference are not well understood. This webinar will present the results of a cross-national project carried out within the E3S Children working group with the aim to get insights on food neophobia and texture preferences in children of different European countries. The outcomes of the study are relevant for both the academic sector and food companies to better understand the mechanisms underlying texture perception and preference in view of food product development and childhood healthy eating. more
