Sessions and Tracks
Track 1: Quality assurance of food products
Food companies may use a set of procedures called quality assurance to ensure that the way their products are developed and produced complies with a set of requirements and standards. With an emphasis on the process chosen to develop the product, QA aims to prevent defects. Quality assurance can be a way to stop errors and flaws in manufactured goods and to prevent problems when providing goods or services to customers for safe food handling and packaging.
- Foodborne illness
- Hepatitis A
Track 2: Food Safety in Retail Foods
Customers place a lot of importance on food safety in the retail setting. Food contamination is at its highest level in retail establishments. Increased risk of health issues is linked to cross contamination of food-borne pathogens in retail settings. Ready-to-eat goods, such as processed meat and cheese, are more likely to be contaminated because disease-causing microorganisms are more likely to attack them. Mycobacteria, eubacteria, and streptococcus species are the most frequently found microbes that contaminate food. To guarantee that customers receive safe food, GFSI was established.
- Food safety
- Cross contamination
- Health problems
- Streptococcus organisms
Track 3: Food Adulteration
Adulteration of food is the process of mixing under- or deteriorated ingredients into food. Another option is to remove the expensive ingredients and replace them with inferior concoctions. Food adulteration is a major global issue. As a result of this process, substances lose some of their nutritious value. After consumption, it can occasionally provide a life-threatening scenario. Techniques including chromatography, spectroscopy, isotope analysis, enzymatic approaches, and DNA-based techniques can all be used to detect food adulteration.
- Degraded substances
- Nutritional substances
- Enzymatic methods
- DNA- based techniques
Track 4: Food Safety Modernization Act
The acronym FSMA stands for Food Safety Modernization Act. On January 4, 2011, Barack Obama signed it. The Food and Drug Administration now has the authority to control how foods are grown, harvested, and processed thanks to the FSMA. It gives FDA the authority to recall the licences of organisations that have been operating for a long time. The emergence of numerous incidents of contaminated food-borne illnesses is the primary driver for the signing of this law.
- Food Drug Administration
- Processing of food
- Foodborne diseases
The foods that are designed to treat any diseased condition or illness are known as medicinal foods. They are full of therapeutic benefits and are used to regulate health through food. This food's formulation ensures that it will nourish the specific bodily system it is intended for. While dietary supplements are external aids that can increase daily vitamin intake or reduce the risk of certain diseases. The consumption of the medicinal food should be regulated by medical professionals. The ingredients used to create medical food should be safe to consume, in contrast to the differing standards employed to create dietary supplements.
- Diseased conditions
- Targeted nutrition
- Dietary supplements
Track 6: Food Additives and Labeling
Food additives are substances that are included in food to maintain or enhance its freshness, safety, flavour, texture, or appearance. Some food additives, such as salt (found in meats like bacon or dried fish) or sugar (found in marmalade), as well as sulphur dioxide, have been used to preserve foods for hundreds of years (in wine). A product's fundamental information, including any substances that are known to cause allergic responses, is provided on the food label.
Track 7: Food Fraud and Authenticity
Food fraud is the adulteration of food for economic gain. Food validity is far broader than food fraud and refers to the fact that the food has not been adulterated. Economically motivated adulteration (EMA), as well as counterfeiting, sabotage, and fraudulent labeling, will all fall under the category of food fraud.
Track 8: Dairy Technology & Safety
Taking into account the science of medical specialisation, nutrition, and biochemistry, dairy technology is the study of technologies involved the processing, storing, packing, distribution, and transportation of dairy farm products. Mycotoxins, which can cause cancer, are frequently found in milk and milk-derived products. Dairy products are therefore treated before delivery to eradicate these germs. Salmonella and E. coli are the main contaminants in the cheese. Therefore, they should be appropriately processed from milk collection to delivery.
- Dairy products
- Salmonella species
The body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals that are essential for each person's physical growth and illness prevention. When the body doesn't absorb or obtain the recommended amount of a nutrient from meals, a nutritional deficit results. A variety of health issues might result from deficiencies. As they hinder growth and development and can result in major health issues like infection and chronic illness, nutrition disorders can particularly affect children.
- Vitamin-A deficiency
Track 10: Poultry Hygiene Management
Our health and fitness depend on eating food that is nutritious, safe, and of high quality. The importance of food protection principles is implied by keeping our food secure. Infections can occur at any level during the growing, processing, storing, and preparation of our food. There are a lot of pollutants (or risks) that will show up in our food. From "farm to fork," good food safety procedures can reduce the likelihood that our food will be contaminated, as well as lessen or even eliminate the effects of any contamination that has already occurred.
Track 11: Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
Implementing good manufacturing practises involves following the guidelines and instructions given by management firms and other authorities while carrying out the production procedures. GMP refers to the correct use of tools, materials, facilities, and methods for the assembly of food products in order to ensure hygiene and care for food protection.
The unique resource Molecular, Genetic, and Biological Process Aspects of Major and Trace Minerals provides a comprehensive overview of the non-vitamin micronutrients, including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, and zinc. The book also discusses the biological functions and pharmacological qualities of the non-essential minerals Cr, halide, and atomic number 5, semiconducting material, and atomic number 23, as well as ultra-trace minerals and individuals without a known dietary requirement for humans. Users can find in-depth chapters on each critical mineral and its metabolism alongside talks of dietary advice from both within the United States and around the globe.
- Catabolite regulation
- Nitrogen regulation
- Nutritional regulation of intestinal health
- Molecular regulation of lipid metabolism
Track 13: Food Allergens
Food allergens are typically inherently existing proteins in foods or proteins derived from them that elicit aberrant immune reactions. Food allergies are reported to be becoming more common worldwide, with more than 8% of children and 2% of adults in places like Australia and New Zealand reporting allergies to one or more foods. having an allergic reaction to several or many different foods. For young children, the most common allergies are milk and eggs. Fortunately, many children overcome these allergies by the time they are 5-7 years old. On the other hand, allergies to foods, nuts, and peanuts may appear later and be chronic illnesses.
Track 14: Food Microbiology
A organised method for assessing the risk to the public's health posed by biological hazards in food is microbiological risk assessment. Food safety management is transitioning from hazard-based to risk-based management, largely based on MRA. In order to transform the potential presence of pathogens within the settings of food production, processing, and preparation into statements of the likelihood and magnitude of a food safety risk in words, a systematic approach known as microbial risk assessment may be used.
- Food-Borne Disease
- Microbiological Criterion
- Food Pathogen
- Food Safety Management
Track 15: Food Toxicology
Food toxicology medicine is the study of hepatotoxic chemicals' characteristics, traits, effects, and detection in food as well as how these diseases appear in people. These substances include hot parts, heavy metals, and packing materials used in the food processing industry. Food pharmacology is an important concept since the food supply chain is becoming more and more global in origin, and any contamination or virulent expression could result in major, widespread adverse health impacts.
- Radioactive elements
- Heavy metals
- Analytical toxicology
Track 16: Food Hazards and HACCP
Since the design, implementation, management, and management of HACCP systems are essential to the creation of safe food products, HACCP may be a significant component of contemporary food safety management practises. Although it is well acknowledged that food firms must use HACCP, little is known about the characteristics that affect a successful implementation. This knowledge is crucial for developing systems that will control all associated food safety concerns. Food safety can be ensured by using the HACCP System in conjunction with good food hygiene practises across the food chain. Once a food is exposed to dangerous substances that cause contamination of that food, food safety problems occur.
Track 17: Seafood Conservation
The globalisation of food trade has posed a number of difficulties for the developing world, particularly in terms of food quality and safety. To meet the objectives of food safety, pathogens in food must be found, identified, and monitored. With global trade expanding and necessitating swift transit over large distances, fast detection techniques change the outcome of quick and trustworthy results dramatically. In high-income countries, ready-to-eat food is one of the most common sources of foodborne disease, which is mostly due to people's demand for whole, unprocessed meals. After fishing or harvesting, conditions imposed during handling, processing, distribution, and storage have a significant role in determining how safe ready-to-eat food is. These conditions may result in the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms or the creation of hazardous substances.
Track 18: Genetically Modified Foods
Foods that have been genetically altered can be referred to as GM foods. They are also known as foods that have been genetically altered. These foods are typically created using genetic engineering technology, which modifies the DNA architecture of diverse organisms. This approach has advantages because it will result in novel features like disease resistance and mutant breeding. In the year 1994, this technology was created. Cash crops including cotton, corn, soybeans, and others are typically the main focus. Producing GM crops with higher nutritional profiles and disease and herbicide resistance is the major goal.
- Genetically engineered foods
- Mutation breeding
- Cash crops
- Nutrient profile
- Disease resistance
Track 19: Food Sampling
To determine whether a product is safe or whether it has any dangerous contaminants, additions, marked ingredients in the proper quantities, and stated nutritional values, one must sample the item. It undergoes physical analysis as part of this process. Anyone can conduct this analysis, including producers, officials, and the general public. This process consists of two steps: sampling, in which the laboratory receives the chosen sample amount, and sun-sampling. The typical examinations carried out during the sampling include:
- Melamine contamination testing
- Microbiological tests
- Spiral plating for bacterial count
- Pesticide residue testing
- Veterinary drug residue testing
- PCR food testing
Track 20: Food Borne Diseases and Prevention
There are currently millions of people suffering from food-borne infectious diseases all over the world. Most of the disease load brought on by these food-borne pathogens is yet unknown. Given the rise in outbreaks of food-borne illnesses, concern over pathogenic and spoilage bacteria in foods is rising (FBDs). The majority of food-borne illnesses are caused by either bacteria or viruses. The goal of preventive measures is to keep food, including liquid and alternate enteral feeds, at the right temperature while storing it hygienically and avoiding cross-contamination. Hazards that are biological, chemical, or physical often lead to foodborne illnesses.
