The ISA will also host an information booth during the whole duration of the congress, to address any questions on low calorie sweeteners, as well as to share ISA scientific materials on the role and benefits of low calorie sweeteners. Furthermore, participants who will visit the ISA information booth will have the opportunity to take part in a 5-minute survey, which can help us learn more about the scientific interests and views of health professionals and scientists in relation to the ISA and low calorie sweeteners. Participants who complete the short ISA survey will be entered into a prize draw to win the registration fees for the FELANPE congress in 2019.
We look forward to meeting you at FELANPE 2018!
