This Conference will be the first event of RCC Harvard Study Group on Functional and Novel Foods. We will review the international framework on functional foods and the optimal characteristics of clinical trials to demonstrate the efficacy and effectiveness of food components. We will then learn how science teaches us to lead a healthy life through nutrigenomics, the new science of wellness, followed by a review on the new trends in consumer research demonstrated by the Flip Strategies and the Menus of Change Program as a joint initiative between the Culinary Institute of America and Harvard.
