The forerunner of the FSD 2018 Congress was the COST, European Cooperation of Science and Technology Action FA1001 under the leadership of Professor Laura Piazza. The Action was called into being to address the challenges of the food industry including meeting consumer demands in term of new food products that are safe, convenient, affordable and healthy. The understanding of the fundamental structure-function relationships of food components is a key to designing new foods. However, commercial food development mostly focuses on ingredient formulation and production processes while their impact on food structure is less researched and the way food structure influences the nutritional and health properties of food have received only little research. The Action created an interdisciplinary team to apply the basic structure-properties knowledge of multi-phased food and formed a network of experts to bridge the above gap between material scientists, food technologists, nutritionists and other professionals of related fields.
After the Action was closed, participants and organizers decided to continue and expand the work done in form of a Conference series. The First Food Structure Design Congress was organized in Portugal in 2014. The second congress took place in Antalya Turkey, in 2016 and now we are pleased to welcome you to the 3rd Congress on Food Structure Design.
