The 11th International Hydrocolloids Conference is organized by the world-renowned Whistler Center for Carbohydrate Research and will be held at The Stewart Center at Purdue University, Indiana, USA.

This prestigious conference, which has attracted over 300 abstracts, will highlight the latest advances in the hydrocolloid field; in particular, fundamental and applied hydrocolloid research in biological systems related to nutrition, health and bioactivity (e.g. immune system) and technology-based systems.

This is a significant opportunity for you to join academic and commercial scientists from around the world to exchange and discuss new ideas and findings in the study and application of hydrocolloids.

The conference will be covering the following topics

  • Hydrocolloid characterization
  • Hydrocolloids for delivery, controlled release, and matrix retention
  • Mixed hydrocolloid systems and component interactions
  • Nutritive hydrocolloids – structure, function and physiologic effect
  • Bioactive polysaccharides
  • Protein-based hydrocolloids
  • Hydrocolloid nanostructures and technology
  • Hydrocolloids and processing
  • Rheology of hydrocolloids
  • Physicochemical properties - emulsions, encapsulation, gels
  • Carbohydrate biomaterials
  • Starch, including hydrocolloid interactions
