Come and talk to DuPont at Vitafoods 2016 at booth H22 - the global event where the entire nutraceutical supply chain does business.

DuPont will also be showcasing our Science and innovation expertise across the Vitafoods Conference programme:

On May 10, join the Weight Management Stream 2 from 11.00 to 11.45 to hear Dr. Lotta Stenman, Senior Scientist, DuPont Nutrition & Health, present: Novel, gut microbiota – targeted solutions for healthy body weight and metabolism, and then participate to the live panel discussion.

Recent advances in science have shown the gut microbiota to play an important role in maintaining good health. The gut microbiota is different between lean and obese individuals, but it is still unclear which bacterial strains or which metabolites could causally affect weight control. The MetSProb study is the first large clinical study to show clear benefits for a probiotic bacterial strain and a dietary fiber in a healthy Western population.
