Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, It is a great pleasure and honour to invite you to the 6th International Symposium on Gluten-Free Cereal Products and Beverages 2023 (GF23), which will take place in Rome from 18 to 20 October 2023.

The meeting is hosted by the Research Centre for Food and Nutrition of CREA , the Italian Council for Agricultural Research and Economics,  and co-organised by the International Association for Cereal Science and Technology (ICC).

The GF23 is entitled “Gluten-Free Cereal Products and Beverages: Designing Food for Individual Needs and Choices” and aims to bring together scientists and representatives of academia and the industry from all over the world working in all fields of gluten-free grain products. The latest findings on coeliac disease research will be presented, as well as on foods and beverages developed for people who benefit from or consciously choose a gluten-free diet. 

This meeting will focus on current issues, trends and perspectives: Coeliac disease and gluten allergies, nutrition and health, detection of allergens, food safety, plant breeding and gluten-free raw materials, functional foods, food processing and engineering, food sustainability, sensomic, marketing, legislation, and citizen perception - covering the newest solutions for different products, including bakery products, dairy alternatives and beer.

We are certain that GF23 will be a platform to gather and disseminate the latest knowledge and advancements in emerging areas of gluten-free research fields through several sessions. In addition, exhibitors and sponsors will provide a very practical and market-oriented look into the field.

By doing so, the GF23 meeting brings together multidisciplinary perspectives to build sustainable, affordable, safe, nutritious and enjoyable, gluten-free products.

You can expect a very stimulating, fruitful and enjoyable time in Rome. Moreover, The Conference location, in the heart of Rome, next to the Trevi Fountain will give the Conference participants an unmissable opportunity to explore the Ethernal City!
