In light of the increased interest in the importance of fibre in our diet, the British Nutrition Foundation is holding a half day symposium, New Frontiers in Fibre, exploring fibre and health. This will include presentations discussing emerging research on the role of fibre and novel fibres in mineral absorption, immunity, cardiovascular disease and obesity. We will also look at the implications of increasing fibre in the diet generally, and in certain clinical groups.
