Proceedings of the 1st Joint ACS AGFD- ACS ICSCT Symposium Thailand, March 4-5, 2014
The organizers would like to invite you to participate and present a talk or poster at this symposium. The conference includes four symposia with emphasis on agricultural and food chemistry. The conference will include plenary lectures, short talks, and posters.
Food Bioactives and Health session will include biological evaluation of food components against certain health problems such as metabolic syndrome, cancer, neuropathy, and infectious diseases; chemical characterization and quantitative analysis of bioactive compounds, clinical studies, and commercial development of bioactive compounds.
Food Safety session will cover food adulteration/authentication, food allergens, mycotoxins, industrial and environmental contaminants, food processing, and nanotechnology (safety of nanotechnology products and uses of nanotechnology to solve food safety problems).
Dairy Products session will cover chemistry of milk, cheese, yogurt, and other dairy products, and will include aspects of composition and functionality, differences between organic and conventional milk, and nutrition.
Flavor Chemistry session will cover recent advances in methods to decode key odorants and tastants of foods as well as the formation of flavor compounds during food processing. In addition, topics beyond flavor chemistry, such as biomolecular interactions of flavor compounds with human odorant receptors and postprandial effects of aroma compounds in human physiology will be outlined.
