In the second quarter of 2020, activities under the #AnnualFoodAgenda project will take place online Building conscious consumer attitudes, improving eating habits among children and young people and promoting trends on the agri-food market – these are the ambitions that are implemented by scientists from the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn and experts from the Maspex food concern as part of the international project EIT Food #AnnualFoodAgenda.
This season the #AnnualFoodAgenda project is moving online. As part of the educational campaign conducted with the Centre for Modernity Mill of Knowledge in Toruń, the scientists prepared a series of unique infographics devoted to the issues of healthy eating, food safety, innovations related to its production and skilful waste management. We take a close look under a magnifying glass, among others, at food allergies, gluten-dependent diseases and antioxidants and prebiotics. We will discover the secret of the Japanese diet and what valuable ingredients locally available vegetables and fruits have in them. We will learn how to prepare gluten-free meals and use microscopic powers in our kitchen. There will also be tips about not wasting food and curiosities about baking products.
On 30 June at 6 p.m. a webinar on food and nutrition trends is planned! Trends in food and nutrition have changed over the years. In order to bring consumers closer to those who are currently shaping the global food market and thus our daily diet, Maspex, the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn and Biotechnologia.pl are organising a webinar which will provide participants with a large dose of knowledge in a nutshell. This joint initiative is part of the #AnnualFoodAgenda project”. (www.annualfoodagenda.com) funded by the EIT Food community. Since the beginning of 2019, the project has been raising public awareness of healthy eating, food safety, innovation related to food production and skilful food waste management. The #AnnualFoodAgenda project is being implemented in three European Union countries – Poland, Great Britain and Spain.
“Food and Nutrition Trends” is a webinar theme that will be presented to participants from two perspectives, a scientist and a nutritionist. Do food trends shape our shopping basket? Or is it the basket that shapes trends? How do they fit into the category “nutrition systems”? The information needed to answer these questions will be discussed by Dr Michał Janiak from the Institute of PAN in Olsztyn. Next, dietitian Agnieszka Piskała-Topczewska will share selected food trends with the participants and explain interesting nutrition trends, thus representing the dietitian’s point of view. At the end of the webinar there will be a Q&A session. Participation in the webinar is free of charge. Registration for the webinar is mandatory.
