Wednesday Breakfast Seminars

Unilever Breakfast Seminar - NOW FULL

Date: Wednesday 5 September 2012
Time: 7.30am - 8.30am
Topic: How do we achieve a Sustainable and Healthy Food Supply?
Speakers: TBC

Outline of Seminar
As a global community, we are facing the challenge of feeding nine billion people in 2050 within the limits of the global ecosystem. It will require raising overall food production by some 70% between 2005 and 2050.

We have to develop ways of growing, manufacturing and selling food and helping people improve their livelihoods without putting a further burden on the earth's resources.

Healthy eating has been promoted for many years. How such advice fits with environmental and other sustainability impacts of our diet is less clear. As the food chain is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emission, developing a better understanding of environment-friendly food choices is essential to achieve a sustainable, secure, and healthy food supply.

Many companies are taking steps to make their products more sustainable, however what more can food companies, as well, health influencers, government and non-government organisations, do to make our food supply even more sustainable?  And importantly, how do we inspire the public to start making changes, even small ones, because their small actions can make a big difference.

This session will discuss these challenges and addresses the question how we can ensure a sustainable food supply and bring healthier food choices to people.

Outline of Seminar
Fermented milk beverage containing probiotic strain Lactobacillus casei Shirota (LcS), which was established by Japanese researcher, Dr. Minoru Shirota in 1930, has been consumed in 32 countries worldwide. It is already well-known that LcS can regulate intestinal functions both preventing diarrhea and improving bowel movement, but it has also recently been reported to have various biological features such as immune modulating effects (ameliorating allergies for example) and anti-tumor effects (both for colon and superficial bladder cancers).This session aims to introduce recent human studies using LcS which examine not only its regulatory effect on intestinal functions but also its immune modulating and anti-tumor functions.

With a five-fold increase in consumption since 1980, mushrooms are now the third most valuable fresh produce item in the vegetable section. An explosion in published scientific research this century, both in Australia and internationally, reveal that mushrooms can improve human health. Mushrooms have attributes not found in fruits or vegetables as they reside in their own biological kingdom. The Australian Mushroom Growers have financially supported world-wide research, the biennial CSIRO Mushroom Report, and the DAA breakfast for the past four years, enabling dietitians to enjoy mushrooms and keep up-to-date with cutting edge research.
