Malta Polyphenols World Congress: 9th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications

International Society of Antioxidants

On behalf of the International Society of Antioxidants in Nutrition and Health (ISANH) and Scientific Committee, we are pleased to announce the organization of the 9th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications: Malta Polyphenols 2015, which will be held in Malta, from June 3 to 5, 2015.

Malta Polyphenols 2015 three-days conference will highlight the following strategic subjects:

Polyphenols in Health & Diseases: The Mechanistics

Modulation of Redox Homeostasis
Modulation of NRf2 and transcription factors
Modulation of antioxidants defense system
Effects on mitochondria

Polyphenols and Microbiota: the subtle modulation

Can microbiota modulate polyphenols absorption and bioavailability?
Can polyphenols modulate microbiota diversity and quality?
Impact of various polyphenols (tea, coffee, cocoa...) on microbiota

Special Session on Polyphenols & Natural Conservators

During Malta Polyphenols 2015, we will discuss and present the recent advances on antiviral, antibacterial and antifongical effects of polyphenols. The scientific committee will allocate time for more presentations on the role of polyphenols as natural conservators in food and beverage industries.

A pre-conference workshop dedicated to "Polyphenols Valorization from Foods & Bio-Products" will be held on June 3, 2015.

The purpose of the workshop is to explore potential sources and target polyphenols prior to designing a recovery strategy based on different processing steps, conventional and emerging technologies applied from the raw material to the final or encapsulated product. Safety, cost and scale up aspects will discussed. Case studies of patented methodologies that lead to real products will be described, with a final aim of suggesting new potential processes and applications in the field.

The 9th Malta Polyphenols World Congress will bring together experts from academia and industries to debate on the latest scientific advances in the field of polyphenols and their uses to improve human health.

We look forward to welcoming you in lovely Malta for this special event.
