3. DLG Forum FoodTec

Lebensmittel für Zöliakie- und Glutenintoleranz-Betroffene

Frankfurt a.M., Germany (German)

Zöliakie und Glutenintoleranz sind Erkrankungen, die auf einer Überempfindlichkeit gegen Gluten beruhen, das in vielen Getreidesorten als Klebereiweiß enthalten ist. Aufgrund neuerer Studien zählen diese zu den am häufigsten vorkommenden ernährungsbedingten Erkrankungen. Da die Zöliakie bisher nicht ursächlich behandelt werden kann, ist eine lebenslange glutenfreie Ernährung nach augenblicklichem Erkenntnisstand die einzige Möglichkeit, der Krankheit zu begegnen. Wie verschiedene der heute für die betroffene Konsumentengruppe angebotenen Lebensmittel zeigen, ist deren Herstellung nicht trivial. Aus diesem Grunde wird diese Thematik nunmehr bereits zum dritten Mal in einem speziellen Forum aufgegriffen, in welchem vor allem technologische Aspekte der Herstellung von Lebensmitteln für Zöliakie- und Glutenintoleranz-Betroffene behandelt werden. Im Rahmen der Veranstaltung findet die Verleihung des DLG-Innovations Award „Junge Ideen“ statt.

Winterschools in Global Food and Food Law for Bachelor Students in Wageningen, the Netherlands

The University of Wageningen, in cooperation with the Euroleague of Life Sciences, AgroParisTech and Lund University, organizes two workshops, addressing food law and global food.

 

The Food Law Winter School is mainly targeted to students in Law, but also open for food science students to enhance interdisciplinary activities and discussions. The target group is students on Bachelor/undergraduate level, but some places are reserved for MSc and PhD students.

Food Law is a small discipline in the field of Law, and is rarely taught at Law or Food faculties in Europe. The Winter School thus is an excellent opportunity for Law and Food Science students to get to know a bit of this field.

 

The Global Food Winter School is targeted at Food Science students at BSc level, who are interested in a position in the global food market and have an international mindset. The programme includes a sustainability workshop by Unilever and a visit to the largest chocolate factory in the world.

EXPO 2015 World Recipes

In the light of this year's EXPO topic Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, a project-based website has been established, that contains a database of traditional recipes from all over the world, composed by over 5.200 authors from over 110 different countries.

 

The well-categorized database shows both innovative and modern, but also many traditional recipes. In contrary to classic recipes, which usually consist of a list of ingredients and preparation instructions, these recipes additionally display nutritional information and a specific "Food Print". This Food Print ranges from one to five and serves as an indicator for the degree of sustainability and the environmental impact of a certain recipe.

TRAFOON Workshop on organic food at the EXPO Milan

The workshop "Bio and tradition, bio and innovation!" is organized as part of a collaboration between Alce Nero, the University of Bologna and the FP7 European project TRAFOON (Traditional Food Network to improve the transfer of knowledge for Innovation), which deals with technology transfer between SMEs and universities in the field of traditional foods. Among the foods considered in TRAFOON, there are those from cereals, fruits and vegetables and derivative products. The workshop aims to align the innovative aspects in the field of organic food and traditional foods, showing that tradition and innovation are not two conflicting aspects but that they can go together to get safer and high quality food and respectful of consumers needs.

TRAFOON Multi-Stakeholder Workshops

In the first year of the TRAFOON project, European small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that are producing traditional foods and food raw materials were asked for their current needs and their opinion of future challenges.

 

SMEs were asked for needed innovations of technical improvements in food production and processing, packaging, labelling, certification, marketing and related topics. For the qualitative analysis of this inventory of needs, multi-stakeholder workshops will be performed which are focusing on the named needs of SMEs in the five food categories. Following multi-stakeholder workshops will be performed:

  • September 02-03 2014, Poland. Workshop on vegetables and mushrooms
  • September 30 2014, Spain. Workshop on olives
  • September 30 2014, Switzerland. Workshop on sweet fruits
  • October 01-02 2014, Netherlands. Workshop on grain
  • October 07-08 2014, Czech Republic. Workshop on Fish

Based on the inventory of needs, the workshops identify sets of innovations that are needed by traditional food SMEs within the different food categories and design training workshops for SMEs which will be performed in the year 2 and 3 of the TRAFOON project. Further, the multi-stakeholder workshops identify gaps in innovations which will be included into the strategic research and innovation agenda.
