"Health aspects related to the digestion and fermentation of starch; results of the EUROSTARCH project in broader perspective"
The central theme of the final EUROSTARCH symposium are the health aspects of starchy foods. The results of the EUROSTARCH project will be placed in the context of the findings of other research groups. A panel of international experts will discuss the state of the art concerning the health aspects of slowly digestible starch and resistant starch fermentation with a focus on the prevention of the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. The scientific results will also be discussed in relation to their societal impact and their consequences for starch processing techniques. Finally, based on the discussions, recommendations about directions for future research can be defined.
