8th International Symposium on "Delivery of Functionality in Complex Food Systems"

WHEN: 7-10 July 2019
WHERE: Porto, Portugal
COST: €650 (Early bird until 8 April 2019) / €490 (Students early bird)

It is a great pleasure to announce you the organisation of DOF2019, the 8th International Symposium on "Delivery of Functionality in Complex Food Systems", in Porto, Portugal!


Please check our website at: http://www.dof2019.org/

This series of Symposia have managed to gather, throughout the years, an interdisciplinary team of scientists from different research areas (food science and engineering, biophysics, applied soft matter, food technology, applied human nutrition) and very different proveniences (from academia, industry and young researchers) and places around the World.

Being the 8th symposium of the series, DOF2019 will not be an exception to this rule and we have prepared an exciting program that addresses the most recent developments in the area, featuring three main themes:

            • Food Structures for Delivery of Functionality

            • Safety and efficacy of delivery systems

            • Healthy food design: is multi-functionality the right way forward?


Topics addressing issues such as the Personalized Nutrition approach, natural and biomimetic food systems or food synergy to delivery of functionality have been included.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy DOF2019, not only at the scientific and technical levels, but also at the cultural level, with the prize-winning city of Porto being chosen as its venue!
