As consumer demand for functional foods and supplements containing healthy lipids and oils continues to soar, global demand for fish oils and omega oils (omega-3, omega-6, omega-7, & omega-9) will continue to climb.

Yet the massive market for these mega-ingredients is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to healthy oils: from antioxidant-rich olive oils, to healthy vegetable and seed oils, and the growing interest for herbal oils and supplements – the market is booming.

While research on the benefits of supplements and health focused functional foods may take centre stage for many, tackling the challenges of sustainability, supply chain management, and formulation in finished products are all vital for future success.

In this NutraIngredients and FoodNavigator online event, we bring you the latest consumer and market insights, scientific developments and technical innovations in the nutritional lipids and oils space.

It's a generational thing! From infants to baby boomers, the market offers lots of products showing how preferences and needs differ from one age group to the next. The markets in individual categories are growing rapidly. For example the rising ageing population means products targeted at the elderly are increasing with focus on energy, cognitive health and bone and joint health.

Providing the right nutrition at progressing life stages can play a key role in reducing the risk of developing a number of conditions, from cancer to diabetes, osteoporosis to obesity. The right nutrition for the right age group also increases the feeling of day-to-day wellbeing.

Successfully developing food, beverage and supplement products for different age groups requires a deep understanding of tastes, health conditions, and spending power, but which groups show the most market potential? What do different groups look for in a food, beverage or supplement? Which are the health benefits they look for the most? And how can successful formulations be translated from one generation to the next?

LifeStages2012 will focus on the very latest opportunities in this sector, including the ever-expanding Kids health category, a detailed overview on the different age groups in the life stages markets, life stage product opportunities in emerging markets and of course marketing and advertising to the modern day world.

Probiotics may have taken some time to seep into consumer consciousness, especially in the US, but digestive health last year entered the top three fastest growing functional food categories. And with developments in science and technology also come greater opportunities to widen the category beyond the traditional dairy application.

The ever-prevalent interest in products that can help boost the body's defence and the direct manner in which gut health benefits are felt has fortified a €12bn+ category.

Regulatory uncertainly in Europe and a string of high-profile lawsuits in the US has made firms much more cautious about making health claims about probiotics.

The Pre- & Probiotics 2012 Virtual Conference will assess this ever-developing but highly critical scenario from both the scientific and regulatory point of view.

As obesity rates continue to rise, the opportunities for scientifically-substantiated weight management food products are impressive.

The emphasis is now moving from dietary programs like Atkins towards an approach that integrates weight loss with overall good health. From market leading satiety ingredients to the next generation of reformulated low-fat products, from sweeteners to meal replacements blessed by EFSA, the weight management market is driving innovation across the industry.

The Weight Management 2011 Virtual Conference & Expo will bring together leading voices in these key areas, as well the cutting edge science of probiotics and prebiotics, and pragmatic insights into getting a health claim.

As populations age, the threat of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis is looming large in the global consciousness. But bone and joint health go beyond the elderly, with implications for the young, athletes, and beyond.

Natural products with potential bone and joint health benefits - calcium, vitamins D and K, glucosamine, and chondroitin, to name but a few - are big business: The US bone and joint health market was estimated to be worth $178 million in 2008, and is predicted to be $246 million by 2015, according to Frost & Sullivan.

However, conflicting science and regulatory pressures are undermining the potential growth of this market.

The Bone & Joint Health 2011 Virtual Conference will look at what products are working and with whom, how to strengthen the science, and how to formulate a winning product.

Gut health and immunity products have been the star performers in functional foods for many years, but the category faces serious challenges as regulators globally place stringent demands on the kind of science required to back claims.

Big Food players like Danone, Yakult and General Mills are heavily invested in the €12bn+ sector that analysts predict will double to €24bn by 2016, despite the EU and US regulatory clampdown that has forced shifts not only in marketing strategies - but the very relationship between marketing and science.

The sector's ongoing scientific efforts have been boosted recently by the US's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) - an organ of the National Institutes of Health - explicitly backing probiotic research and effects in a number of health areas in the gut, the immune system and beyond.

The Pre- & Probiotics 2011 Virtual Conference will feature leading voices offering cutting edge, pragmatic advice to advance understanding of where pre- and probiotic science is at, where it is going, and how it can inform claim-making and market building.

As the global problem of obesity becomes more pronounced, science is helping build credibility for a number of ingredients, and leading companies are forming high-profile food partnerships to get them to consumers.

Food-industry experts predict weight management will be the most significant trend in food in coming years. This is why, from an ingredient standpoint, so many major suppliers are beefing up their portfolio of weight-management offerings. It's one of the main reasons why functional foods are the fastest-growing sector of the food industry, and why the weight-management market is valued at more than $7 billion globally.

While some brands, such as SlimFast, Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig have mushroomed on the back of consumer needs, weight management supplements have been blighted by dubious internet offers. How does the market respond to increasing consumer cynicism, how does it grow the science, and what are the next big developments for the segment?
