Second conference on probiotics

The second conference on probiotics, Probiotech 2008, will be dedicated to synbiotics (probiotics and prebiotics combined) and is scheduled to be held on 23 - 24 June, 2008 in Nantes, France.

Probiotech was held for the first time in June 2007, successfully bringing together manufacturers and end-users of probiotics, as well as researchers in this field, from 24 countries.

It presented the latest research into the benefits that functional ingredients, such as probiotic bacteria, can offer the nutrition, healthcare and cosmetics sectors, alongside information about current legislation affecting the industry.

In response to feedback from the 2007 event, Probiotech 2008 will also cover prebiotic fibres, as well as technological innovations concerning the detection, traceability and safety of microbial flora. There will be targeted and industry-oriented technical conferences on these subjects.

A website with further information is not available yet.
