Background

Saccharide is the unit structure of carbohydrates, and is present in various forms in a wide array of carbohydrate foods from sugars to starches. The innovation space for carbohydrates has seen rapid growth as consumers are actively seeking to limit their caloric and carbohydrates intake, in response to public health policy initiatives, largely driven by the rise in obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

Reformulation efforts to make foods healthier without compromising on taste has been a long-standing challenge for the food industry. As innovative, healthful ingredients and technological solutions continue to develop to meet consumers' needs and nutrition targets, it is important to review the current scientific evidence of carbohydrates in tandem with emerging research and developments. This will benefit from a greater understanding of consumer taste preference and perception, and taste modulation technology that is playing an increasingly important role in satisfying consumer demands and addressing the growing public health challenges.

As part of our ongoing webinar series on nutrients and health, this webinar will engage scientists and experts with expertise in food and sensory science and technology, nutrition and public health to:

  • Review and update current understanding and scientific research on carbohydrates and their potential effects on health and diseases
  • Share valuable consumer science insights on sweetness perception
  • Discuss the technological and sensory aspects of taste modulation
  • Identify research gaps and opportunities in these respective areas, with the key goal of improving public health
