The role of low calorie sweeteners in diabetes and weight management has been the subject of a large number of research studies of the last decades, and has attracted the interest of the scientific community and health professionals. Recognising the increased interest in this field, while also being committed to our objective to communicate evidence-based new and existing research, the ISA proudly hosted the ISA-supported symposium at ECO 2017.
The participation of worldwide renowned academic experts in the ISA-sponsored symposium who presented the latest scientific evidence including their recent research work on low calorie sweeteners’ effects on food and energy intake and diabetes, and on the psychological determinants of consumption behaviour, contributed to a very insightful and strong scientific programme.
The ISA-sponsored symposium at ECO 2017 took place on Friday, 19th May 2017 at 13.15-14.45, which we hope you found interesting and enabled you to be informed on latest research on the field of low calorie sweeteners.
