Abstracts of Workshops

 

1. Exploiting Internet Potential for Professional Development in Food Science and Technology
Daryl Lund, Don Mercer & Team

IUFoST is actively engaged in using the internet to enhance education and knowledge transfer in Food Science and Technology (FST). Most of IUFoST's energy in e-learning has focused on developing a Distance-Assisted Training Program (DATP) based on Continuing Professional Development (CPD). It is targeted to people working in the food industry who have limited background in science and food science and technology in particular. In this workshop, the intended participants are persons engaged or would like to be engaged in training employees in the food industry. Therefore, the workshop will be of interest to educationists who want to develop DATP in India or other countries. We will share both challenges and opportunities from our past work and some "how to" examples. Although this workshop is not intended for students currently studying food science, they are invited to attend, if they are interested in developing DATP materials. The workshop will then be devoted to participants to develop their own interests in e-learning. The aspects covered are:
(i) Using the DATP in the local setting, (ii) Developing courses for DATP and (iii) Advancing the DATP and use of the internet to the next level.


2. Hygienic Design and Food Equipments manufacturing
Heinz Timmermann, Huub Lelieveld & Team

A need for hygienic design and engineering in small and medium scale sector manufacturing will be covered in the workshop along with success stories and case studies that will form major basis of discussion in this specific workshop.


3.The Global Food Safety and Regulatory Developments and Food Safety Validation and Verification
Purnendu C. Vasavada, Larry Keener & Team

Recent development in Global Food Safety regulations indicate clear trend in prevention-based food safety assurance, controlling supply chain from "farm to fork" and emphasis on risk-based hazard analysis and validated strategies for their mitigation. Thus, Current Food Safety regulations are increasingly focused on prevention and preventative controls and rely on validated processes, supply chain and harmonized analytical procedures. The workshop will highlight emerging regulatory trends and legislative developments globally that are likely to impact the preventive controls, preservative processes, including novel and non-thermal processing and preservation techniques, as well as supply chain control to assure food safety. Key topics to be discussed include:

  • Food safety and regulatory developments
  • Basic concepts of validation and verification
  • Validation of thermal and non-thermal processes
  • Laboratory methods validation for microbiological methods
  • FDA's FSMA Preventive Controls and USDA's perspectives on validation and verification
  • Industry experience on validation and case study examples

5. Food Engineering Paradigms for Positive Health Functionality and Impact
K. Niranjan, R. Paul Singh, Ashim Datta, Swamy Anantheswaran & Team

This course will essentially focus on the role which food engineering can play in enhancing the health impact of foods, by considering practical examples such as
1. Frying – where engineering strategies will be presented to assess the provenance of oil in fried products, and lower oil uptake and acrylamide formation,
2. Development of processes and products with prebiotic / probiotic activities and
3. Processes for retention or separation of phytochemicals.

In addition, the course will also review models available for the flow of food through the gastro-intestinal tract. One of the longer term outcomes of the course aims will be to provide insights for developing products and processes which can potentially have positive impacts on cardiac, gut and neurological health.


6. Importance of Measurements in Food and Nutrition Product Analysis
G.V. Iyengar, Peter Bode, Isabel Castanheira & Team.

Food Safety (FS) is a global issue of enormous importance. The globalization of the trade in food products makes FS an international problem, calling for international acceptance of food compositional data. It sets the challenge of equivalence of physical, chemical and biological measurements, governed by calibration, validation, uncertainty assessment and metrological traceability and overarched by robust quality assurance and quality control systems. These issues relate to the precision and accuracy of the analytical results and their practical applications will be discussed in depth. Exercises for calculation of uncertainties, establishing traceability and proper use of reference materials will be taken up in the afternoon. Key aspects include:

i. A framework for the food and nutrition laboratory staff for understanding the metrological principles related to the measurements in the food chain (from farm to fork).

ii. The participants (students, teaching and laboratory staff and data users) will have enhanced awareness for terminologies used in metrology and for generating validated measurements, and become familiar with the new publication ISO 17025:2017 namely "Advancements and Progress in the Field of Standardization".

iii. The importance of education in metrology and identification of metrological gaps in academic programs involving measurements.
