Booth

The exhibition of ICT 2022 was scheduled for four days from Sunday to Wednesday, 18 to 21 September 2022.
ILSI Europe was present as exhibitor at booth no 5, conveniently located at the "Brightlands Foyer" of MECC. We showcased our current activities/scientific portfolio and discussed membership opportunities. About the ICT Congresses
The International Congress of Toxicology was jointly organized by the International Union of Toxicology and the European Society of Toxicology and takes place every two years. This year's theme was "Uniting in Toxicology" and had an inspiring scientific program with plenty of discussions and possibilities to exchange knowledge. Its objective was to promote the scientific state of the art as well as reflection on great achievements in recent years.

Abstract

Acrylamide forms during industrial food processing and home cooking. For years, the cereals processing industry has been engaged in reducing acrylamide formation through production process optimisations and establishment of guidelines.
The 2017 EC Regulation on acrylamide sets benchmarks on acrylamide levels in food, which are considered to be either challenging or insufficient, depending on who is asked. However, if no drastic action is taken, future regulations may threaten the availability of cereals brands.

A new 4 year COST action, called ACRYRED has kicked-off this fall. ACRYRED's challenge is to establish a multi-disciplinary research and communication network on reducing acrylamide formation, involving the entire value chain from grains to consumer products. If asparagine levels can be reduced through better varieties and farming practices, downstream acrylamide formation in cereals-based products could be reduced significantly. Workstreams will also include integration of knowledge on food chemistry and processing, the risk-benefit of Maillard reaction products, and the economic consequences of mitigation measures that may become available.

Join this webinar to hear more about the action, the partners involved and how you can sign up, from the project leader, Prof. Nigel Halford (Rothamsted Research).

The memorandum of understanding and management committee of ACRYRED can be found here.

'Cronobacter videos recorded by Prof. Steve Forsythe'

Webinar_ Cronobacter_IAFP

About the webinar

Cronobacter spp. is generally known to survive for long times in dry environments and can also form biofilms. Due to these characteristics the genus is ubiquitous in the environment, and has been isolated from different sources: water, soil, dust, cereals, animal products, herbs, spices and others. Cronobacter spp. (formerly known as Enterobacter sakazakii) was also identified as causative agent in foodborne outbreaks, esp. leading to severe infections, and even death, in infants. Since the majority of cases are in neonates and even premature neonates, the main food product involved is powdered infant formula for babies of 0-6 months. The organism is very robust in surviving dry conditions and is even more difficult to control in dry factory environments than Salmonella. The persistence of these organisms also led to re-occurring outbreaks, fortunately not frequently, but consistent. In this webinar, we started with a short introduction to the organism and then discussed more details, which are relevant for Cronobacter spp. controls, with an expert panel on subjects like: epidemiology, ecology, persistence, sampling, detection and identification methods, microbiological criteria, and preventive measures. The audience was invited to send in questions beforehand.

Learning Objectives:

  • Epidemiology, Ecology, Persistence, Sampling, Detection and Identification Methods
  • Microbiological Criteria
  • Preventive measures

Speakers

  • Prof. Seamus Fanning, University of Dublin, IE
  • Dr Roy Betts, Campden BRI Group, UK
