Gut microbiome & prebiotics:
Powerful synergy for health & prevention.

The human gut is home to the largest community of microbes that play a key role in maintaining host health and metabolic balance. Some of the most common questions about the gut microbiota, prebiotics and health will be answered in this symposium.

The symposium will be complemented with a live technical demonstration session on fibers and what they can do in a food matrix when it comes to recipe development and improvement of nutritional profiles. We will conclude with a panel of speakers and experts discussing the main themes of the symposium and answering questions.
