ENCAPSULATION OF MACRONUTRIENTS FOR INCREASE SATIETY AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

The growing epidemic of overweight and obesity is increasingly becoming a major challenge to the health providers across the globe. Treatment options are limited by availability, tolerability and side effects. Bariatric surgery is today the only effective way of maintaining long-term weight loss in mammals. Encapsulation of macronutrients represents a revolutionary technology capable of treating obesity by mimicing gastric bypass and subsequently reducing appetite by local exposure of macronutrient to distal part of small bowel.

Key outcomes and takeaways:

• Validate micro-encapsulation as a potential method for weight management

• Elucidate the methods to reduce appetite and underlying hormonal mechanisms

• Clinical evidence and next steps

PRECISION NUTRITION FOR HEALTHY AGEING: INTERVENTION WITH ENCAPSULATION TECHNOLOGY

The consequences of global demographic change, with the continuously growing older population, is a huge challenge for policy-makers, industrialist and manufacturers alike. Societies need to increase knowledge about how to promote good health among the older population in order to secure the health and physcological wellness of our elderly population. Precision nutrition refers to the delivery of specific nutritional components to the body, in a bioavailable format to elicit a health benefit on the host to promote health and quality in later life stages and to prevent costly and negative impacts effects on the population as a whole.

Key outcomes and takeaways:

• Identify those ingredients necessary for healthy ageing

• Review the mechanisms necessary to achieve nutrient bioavailability in elderly vs. younger population

• Clinical evidence to support precision nutrition in the elderly
