Biography:

Thierry Regnier is a Professor at the Department of Biotechnology and Food Technology at Tshwane University of Technology. He has completed his PhD from University of Montpellier II in France with the focus on secondary metabolites in wheat. His current projects encompass biocontrol, mycotoxins, food safety, food processing (Biochemistry), food development of underutilized indigenous fruits and nuts, screening of microorganisms for new antibiotics, flagrances, natural pigments and biogas production.

 

Abstract:

Food insecurity, sustainable agriculture and food system to reduce hunger and malnutrition is one of the goal of the FAO. It is crucial to make sure that the food we eat is not contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria, parasites, viruses, toxins and chemicals. The focus of the key note is to give an overview of the South African landscape in term of food safety and security with an inside on the current challenges. The importance of the traditional crops and food products is also highlighted. Finally, the key role of applying science to solving issues related to sustainable food production and safety, while exploiting the health-promoting properties of foods to improve nutrition.

Abstract:

The aim of the study is to evaluate the in vivo antimicrobial effect of some natural products, Bioavailability is the amount of nutrient in a foodstuff that the body can utilize, to perform various physiologic functions. It varies according to age and physiologic conditions of individuals. The bioavailability of a nutrient depends on several factors such as factors contained in the food itself, factors of human physiology, factors specific to individual’s health status, and factors related to the food processing. Bioavailability is influenced by both dietary and host-related factors. Several dietary factors affect the nutrient bioavailability of plant foods when they are consumed, such as the chemical form of the nutrient in the food and the nature of the food matrix, interactions occurring between nutrients and other organic components within the plant food and pretreatment of the food during processing and/or preparation. Bioavailability of nutrients are very important for fixing nutrient requirements and using it in food labeling purposes. Bioavailability influences a nutrient's beneficial effects at physiologic levels of intake and affects the nature and severity of toxicity due to excessive intakes. Bioavailability is an important issue for many nutritional concerns especially to determine the nutritional
status of an individual.
