A controversial Oxford University ketones spin-off; GSK Nutrition on new EU caffeine regulations; and a sports nutrition veteran on what the ‘mainstreaming’ of sports nutrition really means are highlights of a 1-day event in Frankfurt in November.

The inaugural NutraIngredients and European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA) congress held in Frankfurt on 28 November - the day before Health Ingredients Europe​ - ​will place your business front and centre of the playing field be it in supplements, herbals, powders, drinks, bars or gels.

The 1-day event will feature speakers discussing:

  • sports nutrition performance at the Rio Olympiad
  • a scan of global markets and trends, formats and formulations
  • the latest in QC measures and methods
  • hands-on manufacturing lessons from the pharma sector
  • nutrigenomics & sports nutrition
  • sports nutrition science
  • on-floor sector debate

“It’s a sector that can be challenging to operate in as regulations adapt to blurring niche and mainstream markets, all driven by rapidly evolving scientific research about how certain nutrients affect the body, health and performance,” ​said NutraIngredients senior editor Shane Starling.

“In an Olympic year that celebrates sport at a time of heightened cynicism due to a series of doping scandals, the spotlight has never shone brighter on sports nutrition.”

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside WRBM and Nutraingredients to bring to the industry this conference,” ​said ESSNA chair Dr Adam Carey.

“The programme is designed to be thought-provoking and educational and we very much look forward to gaining some insight from our expert speakers.”

“As with any industry, it’s important we meet regularly to exchange experiences and ideas, but it’s particularly important for the sports nutrition sector given its unprecedented growth in recent years, and the regulatory changes that have taken place over the past few months.”

NutraIngredients brand director Graham Twyford added: “With the conference taking place in Frankfurt just one day before Hi Europe, and fully endorsed by UBM as part of their Health & Nutrition week, it’s an ideal opportunity for stakeholders in the sports nutrition sector to convene in advance.”
