This event is organised by the Institute of Food Science and Technology's (IFST) Food Science and Nutrition Group

Three years on from our initial debate on ‘what are sugars and their role in food and drinks?’ we revisit this topic with a different focus.

This event will debate the push/pull of interventions relating to sugar reduction in our diets, the government policies, industry response and consumer reaction. 

We will:

•    summarise health objectives and government targets

•    review the technologies to reduce sugars, both current and emerging. 

•    ascertain the consumer perspective.

This will once again be an interactive event and bring together a panel of experts to explore various regulatory, health and food formulation issues, relating to sugars reduction in our diet.
