The recently established Codex definition on dietary fibre has led to wide international interest among the regulatory, industry and the academic communities. Although non digestibility remains the key characteristic of dietary fibre definition, it is now recognized that the physiological properties of dietary fibre would determine its importance in the human body and its requirement in the human diet. Issue on prebiotics is also gaining importance in Thailand.
ILSI SEA Region and its Thailand country committee is organizing a seminar on dietary fiber and prebiotics to share the current understanding on dietary fiber and prebiotics, the regulatory status of its definition and claim as well as commercial application and technology related to dietary fiber and prebiotics.
