On 16 October 2019, the Beer and Health Initiative will be represented at the 13th European Nutrition Conference through a 90 minutes session entitled “Does moderate beer consumption fit in a healthy diet?”. The session, to take place from 13:30-15:00 will feature three presentations on nutrients, minerals and vitamins in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beer, on beer and its contribution (or not) to the beer belly and on the effects of alcohol consumption on morbidity and mortality. These interesting topics will be introduced by four scientists from Poland, Denmark and Italy and will be followed by a Q&A session where participants can directly question the presenters.

The 13th European Nutrition Conference is organized in Dublin, Ireland, from 15 to 18 October 2019. The conference is held once every four years, and is the premier European meeting within nutritional science for nutrition scientists and researchers, bringing together nutrition and health professionals from across Europe. This year the conference will present European perspectives on ‘malnutrition in an obese world’. With increasing rates of non-communicable diseases globally alongside the persistent presence of nutritional deficiencies and undernutrition, the conference will take a wide-ranging approach to the topic. A range of leading researchers, organisations and institutions from across the world will present cutting-edge research on topics as diverse as the microbiome, chrononutrition, nutritional reductionism, and nutrigenetics. Different perspectives will cover the genetic, molecular and cellular aspects of malnutrition, metabolism and physiology, and the epidemiological evidence, in addition to exploring the policies, practices and behaviours implicated in designing successful interventions. Over 2,500 delegates from across the UK, Europe and further afield are expected to attend, along with representation from European nutrition societies.
