The Forum, based in Europe and with links worldwide, is an active network of universities, institutes and industries interested in grain and grain based products. Its vision is that whole grain and high fibre grain-based foods assist consumers in health maintenance worldwide, help reduce health care costs and provide added value for companies in the production chain from farm to fork. The forum is formulating priorities for research communications activities, with the overall aim of increasing consumers' intake of protective components in whole grains.

The HEALTHGRAIN Definition of Whole Grain – towards wide acceptance

Discussions with Brussels-based food industry associations are resulting in a growing support for this definition as THE definition in Europe and possibly world-wide. One definition in Europe will contribute to easier acceptance of whole grain related health claims. For more information see https://www.healthgrain.org/activities/whole_grain.

Whole Grain Summit 2017 “Targeting the future of whole grain”

We would like to draw your attention to the 6th International Whole Grain Summit (WGS 2017) in Vienna, Austria from 13-15 November 2017, organised by Healthgrain Forum and the International Association for Cereal Science and Technology in cooperation with the University of Minnesota! It is the only international conference on whole grains, and will use this global reach to establish networks and define action plans that will stimulate increased consumption of whole grains and other healthy cereal ingredients.

WGS 2017 will be a summit that makes a difference! Not only will WGS 2017 bring together world-renowned experts to present the latest insights into whole grains, there will be carefully prepared cross-disciplinary discussions on how to use these insights to help increase consumption of whole grains, and networks established that will be followed up after WGS 2017 to ensure that the discussions have a meaningful and lasting impact.

Come and be a part of WGS 2017 and play an important role in setting the agenda for whole grains in the future! More details about the topics that will be addressed and sponsorship opportunities under www.wholegrainsummit.com
