Dairy Matrix Symposium
The European Milk Forum, together with the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland, will host a scientific symposium for nutrition and health professionals on the evening of Monday 30th October at The Hilton Hotel, Belfast.
The symposium will examine the impact of the ‘food matrix’ on the nutritional and health properties of food, and particularly dairy matrix effects. We also ask if it’s time to adopt a different approach to evaluating the health effects of food based on the whole food rather than the individual nutrients it contains?
The symposium will be chaired by Professor Barbara Livingstone from Ulster University.
Prof Ian Givens, Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, University of Reading
The food matrix: is it time to rethink how we evaluate the health effects of food?
Dr Michelle McKinley, Centre for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast
