2017 Clean Label Conference
Sophisticated Solutions for Simplified Products
The 4th annual Clean Label Conference (March 28-29, 2017, Itasca, Illinois, USA) is the industry’s technical product development summit dedicated to providing practical, impartial and “how-to” formulation advice to R&D and applied food scientists striving to create simplified ingredient labels.
The 2017 program featured 32 presentations.
These included 11 expert, non-supplier aligned general session speakers on key clean label ingredient technologies, regulatory updates and consumer trend insights. Eighteen jury-selected Technology Snapshot presentations provided information on new ingredients assisting in the formulation of safe, convenient, sensory-pleasing foods and beverages. And, new to the program, three Application Briefs that gave 15-minute “deep dives” into technical aspects of formulating confectionery, beverage and baking applications with natural colorants.
Nine casual activities enabled attendees to network with peers, leading food science experts and ingredient vendors including those at 42 tabletop exhibitors.
