Event description

Description

The international conference on 'Gums and Stabilisers for the Food Industry' was initiated at Glyndwr University (formerly North East Wales Institute), Wrexham, in 1981 and has been held biennially since then. These now well established "Gums Conferences" are into their third decade, stronger and more scientific than when they were first conceived. It is well to remind everyone about the objectives of these conferences. They started in an environment where hydrocolloids were commodity materials, with little interaction between researchers and academic institutions, producers and users of additives and ingredients in food products. The subject has accelerated meanwhile. The Proceedings of these conferences have contributed greatly in this respect. They are widely quoted and are now widely found on the bookshelves in industry and academia. Alongside, the Journal Food Hydrocolloids has also progressed, with its impact factor growing steadily over the years.

Plenary speakers include:

Professor Frederic Debeaufort, University of Burgundy, France
'Use of gelatins and chitosans encapsulating natural extracts for the development of active bio-packaging: a review and latest results'

'Food Industry: natural landscape on hydrocolloid use'
