Years of research has demonstrated the efficacy of the diet rich in functional foods with bioactive compounds in reducing the risk of developing chronic disease. Decreasing the risk of chronic disease can also reduce the risk of viral disease, as those with chronic disease are more vulnerable to contracting and perishing from viral diseases. Considering the impact of the diet on both chronic and viral disease, having a greater understanding the bioactive compounds that produce the beneficial effects of the diet with functional foods can lead to improved health of the global population and decrease vulnerability to disease. Once identified, these bioactive compounds can be used in the development of functional foods for certain conditions and diseases.
To facilitate and promote the discussion of how the functional foods and bioactive compounds can be used to reduce the risks of disease, the central theme for the Functional Food Center’s 31st International Conference will be "Functional Foods and Bioactive Compounds: Modern and Medieval Approaches." This conference will bring together experts in medicine, biology, and the food industry to discuss the usage of functional foods with bioactive compounds as dietary interventions for chronic and viral diseases, such as COVID-19.
The conference is organized by Functional Food Center-FFC (Dallas, TX, USA), Functional Food Institute-FFI (San Diego, CA, USA), Yerevan State University (YSU), The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) of Armenia, The Matenadaran, Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, Research Institute (Yerevan, Armenia), International Academic Society for Functional Foods and Bioactive Compounds (ASFFBC), The Journal of "Functional Foods in Health and Disease" (FFHD), The Journal of "Bioactive Compounds in Health and Disease" (BCHD) and The Journal of Functional Food Science (FFS).
FFC's 31st International Conference will also examine all aspects of SARS CoV-2 infection prevention and management, including non-pharmaceutical interventions, as well as active and passive immunization.
FFC 31 - In-Person, as well as a Virtual Experience (LIVE Online Event): September 29th - October 1st, 2023. For more than 25 years, the Functional Food Center has provided the functional and healthy food industry with outstanding education, training, exhibits and networking opportunities to a worldwide community of researchers, food scientists, and academics.
