Let’s talk about food. Join the #AnnualFoodAgenda “Science SOS” action and engage with food researchers to answer all your questions about healthy nutrition. Can our diet have an impact on the health of our grandchildren? Why is it worth to choose fish from controlled environments? How to handle food to avoid microbiological cross-contamination? What should we do when we have symptoms of gluten intolerance? Institute of Animal Reproduction an Food Research PAS invites teachers, tutors and organisers of food-related events to book online visits of food scientists and let their audience learn about healthy eating habits. #AnnualFoodAgenda “Science SOS” offers meetings with microbiologists, food technologists, biotechnologist, ichtiologist and experts in molecular biology. We will talk about myths around the quality of fish from breeding tanks and take a closer look at sugars naturally present in fruits and vegetables. The consumers will also discover why food producers reach for ancient crops, and why we should not eliminate gluten from our diet without medical consultation. We will get an insight into the bacteria causing food poisoning and look at biofilm forming our e.g. our teeth. The topics available include also nutritional programming, the pro-health properties of raspberries and controversies around meat in our diet.
