Do functional foods, like probiotics, prebiotics and superfoods, actually work? Or is it all marketing hype? Bob Rastall analyses a shopping basket in our latest Café RSC discussion.
Tuesday 21 June, 18.00 for 18:30-20:30
The Chemistry Centre, London W1J 0BA
The food industry is increasingly trying to sell us functional foods like probiotics, prebiotics, superfoods, etc. on the promise that they will improve health. What is the science behind these products? Do they work or is it all just marketing hype? What will the future hold in this area?
Professor Rastall, Head of Food Biosciences, Reading University, will analyse a shopping basket of such products and answer your questions in this Café RSC discussion.
