Dear Colleagues & Friends,

On behalf of the organising and scientific committees, I am delighted to invite you to join us at the 7th International Conference on Food Digestion (ICFD2021) to be held in the city of Cork, Ireland on 4-6th May 2021.

This conference is a major event in the field of Food, Nutrition and Health. It is organized in the frame of the INFOGEST research network ( whose objective is to “improve the health properties of food by sharing our knowledge on the digestive process”. INFOGEST is a global network of approximately 350 research scientists (academic and food companies) from 40 countries.


This conference will bring together renowned speakers in food digestion covering topics such as; (a) Food structures and nutrient bioaccessibility/bioavailability, (b) Design and characterization of functional food, (c) Oral processing and sensory properties of food, (d) Digestion models (In vitro, in vivo and in silico), (e) Unravelling the mechanisms of food digestion and (f) Effect of food on gut microbiota.


The team from Teagasc look forward to welcoming you to Cork. Cork was founded 14 centuries ago, on islands in an estuary, where the River Lee joins the world’s second-largest natural harbour.

Come to Cork for ICFD2021 and lets enjoy the science and local food together.

With best wishes,

Dr. Linda Giblin

Chair of Organising Committee, Teagasc
