Event Description

Full Description:
QLD members and guests are invited to a lecture that will be examining the intersection of food and nutrition.

Guest speakers: Dr Mark Turner
Mark has extensive expertise is in microbiology (environmental microbiology or intestinal microbiology) that spans food safety and bacterial metabolism within the large intestine. Mark will be examining the impact metabolites produced by food components (secondary metabolites from food) have on the microbiota and their health implications.

Professor Mike Gidley
Mike has a very wide expertise ranging from cellulose structure, nutrition, digestion and microbiology. In February 2017, Mike presented to QLD AIFST members on nutrition and health focusing on caloric intake of food (composition), what a balanced diet is, the effect of food on gut microbial populations and what implications this has for maintaining good health. During this talk, Mike will be presenting the areas of nutritional components that affect the microbiota (Resistant starch, dietary fibre including insoluble and soluble polysaccharides, and phytonutrients that pass into the large intestine).
