New science and innovative food applications will support Embria Health Sciences' branded ingredient EpiCor <http://www.epicorimmune.com/> at this year's Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo, set for June 11-14 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center.
On Sunday, June 12 from 3 to 5 p.m., IFT attendees can explore the latest research behind EpiCor by visiting the technical poster display area. The poster's presented abstract was selected by the IFT Scientific Program and illustrates EpiCor's researched ability to establish prebiotic properties in the gut and protect against inflammation in vitro. Embria's Dr. Stuart Reeves, director of research and development, will be available to further explain these recent findings.
Embria representatives will also be on hand at booth #7125 (Hall H) during show floor hours. Attendees wishing to follow the self-guided, IFT-selected Trend & Solution Tour can learn more about EpiCor's key function in ProActive Health Products' Prebiotic Soft Chews, a recently introduced berry-flavored product that promotes immune health through a strong digestive system.
