About the Science Innovation Showcase

The IAFNS Science Innovation Showcase is the only dedicated event focused on the science and underlying data of innovative ingredients and products in the food and beverage ecosystem.  The showcase will focus on:

Food ingredients

  • Sodium reduction solutions (e.g. NaCl replacers)
  • Sugar reduction technologies (e.g. low- and no-calorie sweeteners)
  • Health promoting carbohydrates (e.g. fiber or non-digestible carbohydrates)
  • Novel protein sources (e.g. alternative proteins)

Food packaging, and

Food pathogen testing.

With the challenges of moving an idea to a prototype and on to the market – this science-first and science-focused dialogue will support positive change in the technical development of consumer foods and beverages. The presenters will include regulatory experts, innovation center faculty, leaders from other non-profits and speakers from major corporations and indie and emerging brands.  Additionally, investor voices will be heard in a facilitated dialogue.

The Science Innovation Showcase agenda will review the science, the data and the new technologies being used to create products that deliver performance and functionality while remaining cost effective and overcoming regulatory barriers. There will be technical sessions on the different focus areas. Expect to engage in discussions with representatives from government, industry and academia – along with thought leaders at other non-profit organizations.

Whether you are working on new novel ingredients within an existing portfolio of brands, planning to offer the consumer world an exciting new product, or enhancing food safety, this unique forum should be on your calendar for December 14 and 15, 2021.
