Vitafoods Asia 2019 took place from the 25th to 26th September at the Marina Bay Sands Exhibition and Convention Centre in Singapore. The event attracted 7,060 industry experts from 78 countries marking it as one of the largest nutraceutical events in Asia.

This year the organizers focused on three main trends; personalized nutrition, digestive health, and sustainable packaging. The event also included a conference programme that covered five key industry themes that will shape the Asia Pacific region.

One of the themes featured “The science behind your gut” where one of the speaker’s Dr Lin Jing a researcher from the Food Science and Technology Programme, National University of Singapore shared on the use of okara – a by-product of soymilk production – for creating fortified foods.

Speaking at the conference on the theme of “Mental wellbeing” was Dr Heng Kiang Soon a lecturer of the School of Applied Science - Republic Polytechnic, Singapore. He discussed the benefits of the use of solubilised okara in the formulation of DHA-rich soy cream cheese that would provide as a potential functional food for supporting brain health.
