About the event
The ILSI Europe Annual Symposium (IEAS) will be back on 24 & 25 October 2023 in Brussels.
IEAS is a gathering of experts from around the world who meet to shed light on the current and future challenges in food safety, nutrition and sustainability. It is also an opportunity for stakeholders to take part in the debate around those topics and create connections.
This year, we also propose as a side event an interdisciplinary interactive workshop on the health benefits of prebiotics.Register to IEAS 2023 (24 Oct -OR- 24 & 25 Oct) Register to Prebiotics Workshop (25 Oct)

Identifying knowledge gaps and a roadmap for building a health claims portfolio
Interdisciplinary interactive workshop organised by the Prebiotic Task Force to identify current gaps in scientific understanding and support for prebiotic health benefits and the link to microbiota modulation.
- Provide a state-of-the-art overview of the scientific evidence on the health benefits of prebiotics and the link to microbiota modulation.
- Identify the current routes to make a prebiotic claim for food or food supplements in Europe and compare these with worldwide health claim regulations (e.g. North America, Asia-Pacific).
- Design and co-build a roadmap to progress scientific support for prebiotic health effects and health claim substantiation.
