DIETARY FIBRE MEASUREMENT HAS CHANGED. What does this mean for you?

Date: 13th October 2020 | 16:00 hrs CET | 10:00 am EDT
Price: Free for ICC Members | € 25 for Non-Members

International standardization bodies such as ICC (Standard No. 185) and AOAC (Method 2017.16), recently adopted a new method for the measurement of dietary fiber (DF) content. The Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) recommended adoption of this new dietary fiber method at their last meeting in November 2019. The next step will be acceptance by the Codex Committee on Methods of Analysis and Sampling (CCMAS).

In this webinar Prof. Barry McCleary, CEO and owner of Megazyme and method's author, will:
  • Highlight what has changed and why
  • Provide guidance on how to select the correct method for a particular food sample
Furthermore, Dr. Dave Plank, Managing Principal of WRSS Food & Nutrition Insights, will:
  • Focus on the impact this change in DF measurement will have on regulatory compliance by examining the US as a case study
  • Outline in detail the essentials of the analytical documentation needed to support compliant dietary fiber labelling for Nutrition Facts Disclosures in the US

Megazyme Research Director David Mangan will moderate the webinar and introduce the speakers.
