AQUABIOPRO-FIT at the 35th EFFoST International Conference
AQUABIOPRO-FIT at the 35th EFFoST International Conference
Project results from AQUABIOPRO-FIT will be presented during the BBI special session titled Optimal Utilization of Seafood side streams at EFFoST2021 on Wednesday 3 November in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In this session AQUABIOPRO-FIT will be joined by the BBI project WASEABI. The objective of this project is to solve challenges that prevent more sound exploitation of the aquatic resources. This will be obtained by developing, sorting technologies, storage solutions and decision tools that will secure an efficient, sustainable supply system for by-catches, as well as for solid and liquid side-streams from aquaculture, fisheries and the aquatic processing industries to bio-refining operations.
For the AQUABIOPRO-FIT project, Katerina Kousoulaki and Silje Steinsholm will be representing our project partner Nofima from Norway. Katerina Kousouki will be discussing exploitation opportunities for fisheries and aquaculture side stream biomass-based ingredients, and Silje Steinsholm will talk about the nutritional and sensory properties of hydrolysates based on residual raw material. Our project partner Christos Tsatsanis, from the University of Crete, Greece will present findings on how diet supplementation with fish-derived protein hydrolysates suppresses type 2 diabetes by modulating the intestinal microbiome in a mouse model of diet-induced obesity.
The 35th EFFoST International Conference will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland from 1-4 November 2021. The conference titled Healthy Individuals, Resilient Communities, and Global Food Security will be hosted by Agroscope, Bühler Group, EPFL, ETH Zürich and Nestlé, and supported by an independent scientific committee. The rich and diverse conference programme comprises of 11 plenary lectures, 3 panel discussions, more than 170 oral contributions in 30 sessions and over 350 poster presentations. Each year, EFFoST conference hosts world-renowned researchers, scientists, policy makers, professionals and students to share the latest developments and create new partnerships in multi-disciplinary food-related fields.
