Developments in Deep Fat Frying for Health and Quality

Organised by:

SCI’s Lipids Group supported by the Food Group

Meadow Suite, University of Reading, Reading, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Frying is a very popular method for food preparation worldwide, both on domestic and industrial scales, because it yields products with unique texture, flavour and appearance, which makes the food more desirable and palatable. In order to meet the high demand and ever changing needs of consumers, the frying industry and fast-food sectors are now utilising oils perceived to be healthier (ie low in saturated fatty acids and free from trans fatty acids), and manufacturing products that are relatively lower in calories.

Well-known speakers drawn from both academia and industry will discuss the latest research and new technology developments in frying systems, and focus on current trends in the selection of healthier and sustainable frying oils, techniques for lowering product oil content, tests for controlling oil quality,strategies for minimising the formation of undesirable components and ways of improving nutritional profile. 

The Lipids Group’s SCI International Lecture will also take place during this 2 day event.
Attendees
The conference will be of great interest to researchers, scientists and technologists working in frying and allied industry e.g. frying oil producers and users, fast-food operators, fried snack food manufacturers and retailers, nutritionists, regulators, environmentalists, and frying equipment manufacturers. If you are involved in the frying sector, you cannot afford to miss this event.
