Seaweed for health conference
21-24 June 2020 | Galicia | Spain
We have a dream that someday seaweed will be known to everybody as a healthy part of everyday life. Therefore we are bringing together people with knowledge and experience to this international “Seaweed for Health” conference. Topics will include health research and business interests concerned with maximizing the use of seaweed. We hope that you will join us.
Available worldwide, seaweeds are incredibly rich sources of nutrients and unique bioactives. At the “Seaweed for Health” conference we will present an opportunity for people from many backgrounds to discuss the health-promoting properties of seaweed compounds, including novel functional ingredients that can be used for the formulation of food, feed, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals and pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, we will discuss toxicological aspects and regulatory issues as well as some barriers for industrial exploitation and commercialization of seaweed.
A small local seaweed industry exhibition will be held during the conference.
The conference will also include a seaweed cooking demonstration, and an optional seaweed collection tour or a one-day tour along the Galician Coast.
We invite you to join us in Ourense June 21-24, 2020, Galicia, Spain.
