The nutrition department of Institut Pasteur de Lille is devoted to nutrition through its activities in research and clinical trials, public health and training in nutrition.

It organizes every year since 1998 on its Campus in Lille a scientific congress called “Les Entretiens de Nutrition de l’Institut Pasteur de Lille” on hot topics in the field of nutrition for health practitioners and dieticians, researchers, and food industry professionals.

This year we are pleased to combine our event with Nutrevent conference through the organization of one-day Symposium to offer a better platform to the delegates.

Food matrix effect beyond nutrients

The food matrix effect is a new approach for nutrition, health, food science and technology. This concept considers that foods are not a single sum of nutrients and includes the interactions between nutrients, the bioavailability, the role of the food structure and the process.

It explains the differences between foods that have the same nutritional contents but also why dietary supplements and whole foods have not the same effects.

This symposium is dedicated to this very important topic with presentations of some of the best experts in the field.
