Although much is known on the role of individual nutrients on health and disease, the interactions between different nutrients is often overlooked. The knowledge of how nutrients interact and compete at the level of the food matrix but also at metabolism and molecular level and how these interactions affect function and bioavailability of nutrients will inform diet design for health and welfare.
The aim of the conference is to present the latest cutting-edge research on interactions between nutrients and the consequences of these interactions on health and disease. Specifically, it will address how the competition between nutrients may affect bioavailability of dietary compounds, report on possible mechanisms of nutrient-nutrient interactions and demonstrate their role in protection from disease.
