Pozvánka – konference: Max Rubner Conference 2014, 6. - 8. října 2014, Karlsruhe
Datum: 23.09.2014

We are pleased to announce the Max Rubner Conference 2014 to be held

from 6 to 8 October 2014, at the Max Rubner-Institut, the German

Federal Research Institute of Nutrition and Food, in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Food processing through the use of biological agents is historically a wellestablished approach. The earliest applications go back to 6,000 BC or

earlier, with the brewing of beer, baking of bread and producing cheese

and wine. In those days the biological agents were unknowingly used. In

more modern days, in the late 19th century the food industry started to

produce enzymes for food processing.


Enzymes are useful biotechnological processing tools whose action can

be controlled in the food matrix to produce higher quality food products.

These include enzymes used in baking, beverages and brewing, dairy,

dietary supplements, as well as fats and oils. Even if the integration of

enzymes in food and feed processes is a well-established approach,

evidence clearly shows that dedicated research efforts are consistently

being made as to make this application of biological agents more

effective and/or diversified. In recent years, significant advances in

enzyme engineering and biocatalyst design have fastened the pace of

such developments.


The conference aims to provide an updated overview on the applications

of enzymes in the food sector, and of progresses made in respect to

exploit more efficient biocatalysts, through screening, structural

modification, and immobilization of enzymes. Targeted improvements aim

at enzymes with enhanced thermal and operational stability, improved

specific activity, modification of pH-activity profiles, and increased product

specificity, among others. Besides technological aspects, legal and health

issues are also addressed.


We invite you to participate in this inspiring conference, to meet

colleagues from other institutions and countries, to discuss common

problems, and to inform yourself about the latest developments in the

area of enzymes in food processing. We are looking forward to meeting

you in Karlsruhe!
