Nutrition Industry Experts Discuss Strategies, Innovation at NFAP in Singapore

2019-06-27 17:28 Thursday

The 4th Nutraceutical and Functional Food Asia Pacific Summit 2019 ( NFAP), hosted by Duxes, took place at the One Farrer Hotel in Singapore from June 25-26. NFAP 2019 attracted over 150 industry leaders from Asia-Pacific countries including China, United States, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore to exchange ideas on regulatory environment, policies and the development of the nutraceutical and functional ingredients industry across the Asia-Pacific region.


NFAP 2019 included the most knowledgeable authorities from the Asia-Pacific region and around the world, including policymakers and authorities from China Health Care Association, the Indonesian Health Supplement Association (APKSI) and the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).

During the two-day event, specialists from the fields of dietary supplements, biotechnology, e-commerce and food safety met to talk on the impact of national policies as well as product development and research. Speakers gave presentations on the new possibilities of meal replacement shake in the Asia-Pacific region and how functional food ingredients improve Alzheimer’s, among a variety of other topics.


Attendees were invited to analyze and interpret the impact of changing technological advances on functional ingredients, especially in relation to probiotic dietary supplements, high fiber wheat and plant-based nutrition. In addition to the many speeches delivered by the distinguished guests, the event also featured a fascinating panel discussion on the topic of popular ingredients in health foods and a presentation on developing sports nutrition brands in Singapore and Southeast Asia.


This gathering was an important showcase of the harmonization between food science, manufacturers and marketing companies. During NFAP 2019, it was pointed out that: “Vitamin and dietary Supplements (VDS) refer to the use of vitamins, minerals and plant or animal-derived ingredients, and other functional ingredients as the main raw material, to supplement the diet by essential nutrients and bioactive substances, in order to maintain or improve health status and reduce the risks of diseases. VDS do not cause any acute, sub-acute or chronic adverse effects to the human body.”


Duxes is grateful to all of our distinguished speakers for having taken time out of their busy schedules to attend NFAP 2019 and to share such noteworthy opinions on these matters of industry importance. Duxes also wishes to show their appreciation for the sponsorship of Cabio Biotech, Decernis, Sirio Pharma, SGS, Huinutri, Aptar CSP Technologies as well as the partnership of EUROMONITOR INTERNATIONAL.
