CONFERENCE PROGRAM Innovative Ingredients for a Better Health 4 th October 2018, Room: D2-GF-04 Jakarta, Indonesia Organized by: With the growing policy pressures to address the overconsumption of sugar, rising epidemic of obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), the food industry has been working to deliver solutions through healthier product innovation and reformulation particularly around reducing the sugar content in food and beverage products. In the case of Low/Non-Calorie Sweeteners (LNCS), its reputation has been constantly challenged with alleged associations of causing weight gain and some cancers, in spite of current scientific findings suggesting otherwise. The session will address the negative narrative on LNCS and explore the barriers and opportunities tied to accelerating product innovation and reformulation efforts to nudge healthier eating behaviours among consumers.
