The International Sweeteners Association (ISA) is delighted to support and be virtually present at the FINUT 2020 virtual Conference on Food and Nutrition, which is being organised online by the Ibero-American Nutrition Foundation (Fundación Iberoamericana de Nutrición – FINUT) from 11th to 13th October 2020.
In light of the multiple challenges that the world is facing due to the new coronavirus and to the pandemic of Covid-19, discussions around food and nutrition and their role in health promotion and disease prevention are becoming more important. Therefore, the theme of FINUT 2020 “All working together for a better nutrition” is more relevant than ever before.
The FINUT Conference is expected to create an open virtual environment for exchange of ideas and for discussion on topics related to the main challenges of Food and Nutrition in Ibero-America including in the context of the current unprecedented situation. The Conference aims at training professionals and researchers interested in these areas and at providing scientific answers to the current nutrition-related challenges.
On the occasion of FINUT 2020, the ISA is organising a scientific ‘meeting with experts’ on Sunday, 11th October 2020, at 16.10-17.40 CET (Central European Time), where Dr Brian Cavagnari from the Argentine Catholic University in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Dr Hugo Laviada-Molina from the Marist University of Mérida, Mexico, will provide engaging and interactive talks on frequently debated topics regarding the role of low/no calorie sweeteners in obesity and diabetes. The ISA will also be hosting a virtual ISA information booth at the virtual exhibition of FINUT 2020 during the whole duration of the congress, to answer any questions participants may have. Please see below the section on the virtual exhibition booth for more information about ISA activities on this occasion.
