FENS 2015 Berlin

FENS 2015: What to expect at the YINI symposium?


The European FENS Nutrition Conference in Berlin is approaching fast! On the 22nd of October 2015, YINI hosts a symposium on the benefits of yogurt. During the event, three international guest speakers will present their latest research findings on yogurt consumption, focussing on a healthy lifestyle, weight and diabetes.

We gladly present you the official program and scientific topics of the YINI symposium during the congress of FENS 2015 in Berlin:

  • Angelo Tremblay (PhD at the Department of Kinesiology, Laval University, Canada) is an international renowned expert in obesity research. He will focus on yogurt as a healthy food, because of its nutrient composition, fermented food benefits and improved metabolic profile and will present an overview of different studies, which associate yogurt with a healthy eating pattern and lifestyle.
  • Richard Atkinson (PhD at the Department of Pathology, Virginia Commonwealth University, US) is also an obesity expert. He will report on the results of his comprehensive literature search, identifying key-findings on yogurt and weight management, as different cross-sectional and cohort studies show a positive association between yogurt consumption and a healthy weight.
  • Jordi Salas-Salvadó (PhdD Human Nutrition at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Rovira i Virgili University, Spain) will focus on the prevention of type 2 diabetes. He evaluated yogurt as a nutrient-dense food, whereby proteins, vitamins and minerals show beneficial effects on the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Chairman Prof. Ranaan Shamir (Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel) & Prof. Andrew M. Prentice (MRC International Nutrition Group, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK) will open the symposium and will highlight important conclusions and recommendations.
