INFOGEST is an international network with the aim of Sharing Information on the Digestion of Food. INFOGEST was created under a cost Action [FA1005] and has evolved into an open network of scientists from both academia and industry from over 45 countries. The aim of the network is to improve the current scientific knowledge on how food is disintegrated during oral, gastric and intestinal digestion.
The Infogest Webinar Series on Food Digestion began in September 2020 and is held on the first Wednesday of each month. Each month, speakers from academia and industry present their latest research on the topic of food digestion. The series will continue in the lead up to the next International Conference on Food Digestion 3-5 May 2022 in Cork, Ireland.
