Bonn to host 7th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications

ISANH believes the term polyphenols will replace the banal and less credible term antioxidant.

The scientific committee of Paris Polyphenols 2013 and the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH) announce the final program of the 7th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications, which will be held in Bonn in June 6 and 7, 2013.

Polyphenols in human health have gained worldwide interest and the knowledge about the relationship between their consumption and health improvement is constantly growing. Pr M. Edeas and Pr Schieber, chairmen of Polyphenols 2013, confirmed, “We will highlight the impact of polyphenols consumption on the prevention of many chronic diseases. We will talk more about gut microbiota and the role of polyphenols in particular in obesity and diabetes. In order for phenolics to be applied as bioactive compounds, more data needs to be generated concerning their efficacy, bioavailability, metabolism, their chemical and physical behavior in various matrices during processing, and obviously their potential toxicity. Despite significant advances in the analysis of phenolic compounds, there are still challenges when it comes to their characterization and quantification.”

Pr Edeas and Pr Schieber confirmed, “We believe that rapidly the term polyphenols will ‘replace’ the banal and less credible term of antioxidant.”

The focus of ISANH Polyphenols 2013 two days of conferences will be on following aspects:

  • Polyphenols & Health: Clinical Evidences in 2013
  • Bioavailability, Health Effects & Safety Assessment
  • Technological Aspects and Stability of Polyphenols
  • Analysis of Polyphenols in Foods and Dietary Supplements: Session dedicated to Prof. Dr. Rudolf Galensa, University of Bonn, in recognition of his lifetime contributions to the field.

A special session will be dedicated to Polyphenols regulation and Claims in Europe with the recent EFSA recommendation.
