What is the Food Classification Workshop about?
The Workshop will gather scientists, regulatory professionals, policy-makers, and stakeholders from various disciplines with an interest in understanding the science basis for various classification systems and how they can best support research on food-health relationships.
Presenters will explore and discuss the value and consequences of food processing technologies, the science basis and validity of various systems, and potential mechanisms underlying associations with health outcomes. The workshop discussions will culminate on key considerations for food classification systems for research.
