Session 2: Gluten — Intolerance factor or blessed bread? presented by INRA
Wednesday 9th November, afternoon
Chair: Joël Abécassis, INRA
Facilitator: Fabienne Chauvrière
INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research) has been focusing on a nutrition problem that concerns every segment of the cereals industry: gluten. Whether nutritionally genuine or just marketing hype, many questions are being asked and science projects set up to understand how a protein that we have been eating for thousands of years may have suddenly become hazardous. Many factors are being invoked including genetic selection, harsher processing methods, gluten increasingly being added to more preparations… What do researchers say? What do professionals think?
Gluten: What are the facts? Summary of the work on gluten by Bernard Guy-Grand, Science Advisor to the President of FFAS (French Food and Health Fund)
Gluten sensitivity in top athletes, by Yohann Wittrant, INRA Clermont-Ferrand
Does crowd-sourced science have an answer? Limits of existing thinking and the need for new approaches, by Jean-Michel Chardigny, Human Nutrition Department, INRA
Roundtable on the topic: Professionals and researchers: What can we together do to solve the gluten issue? The industry will be represented by Christine Bar L’Helgouac’h (Head of Quality and Valorisation, ARVALIS-Institut du Végétal) for upstream, Bernard Béjar (CEO of Céréales Vallée) for competitiveness hubs, Valérie Cami (General Secretary of Observatoire du Pain) for the processing sector, Brigitte Jolivet (President of AFDIAG, the French Gluten Intolerance Association) will report on consumer constraints, and Bruno Pierre (Valpiform) will talk about distributors’ expectations.

2nd Global Milling Conference – Live Update

The International Milling Directory has been excited to hear from our colleagues in Bangalore, India at the close of the second and final day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference.
This conference was held with delegates able to also visit VIV India, which was also in Bangalore in the same week.
A report is below giving a great insight into how this conference went and a look ahead to the next one in 2015.

Roger Gilbert from the International Milling Directory speaks at the 2nd Global Milling Conference, Bangalore, India on April 24th 2014

Roger Gilbert from the International Milling Directory speaks at the 2nd Global Milling Conference, Bangalore, India on April 24th 2014

There was great excitement on the closing day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference today when scientist Dr Sourav Kumar of the International School of Milling Technology at the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysore, India, announced the introduction of a new ‘milk’ product made exclusively from wheat germ and which can sell at one-third the current retail price for milk – and which has twice the nutritional content.
Dr Kumar believes that this new product – which a team of 12 scientists developed over an 11-month period – offers India’s malnourished an affordable nutritional drink that will aid growth and development in children and help overcome health issues afflicting adults, such as staving off the development of cancerous cells.
While there is a certain amount of skepticism associated with stories of this nature, on this occasion Dr Kumar samples of his milk product on display – along with a soup broth made from the same processed wheat germ and served to delegates at lunch – tasted like fresh drinking yoghurt. From our personal opinion, the muffin made from the same wheat germ product was rather dry but otherwise very acceptable!
While feeding the world’s hungry might not be upper most in the mind of flour millers (but which this writer believes should be), there is an added advantage for millers who produce flour from this wheat germ product – the resulting flour has an extended shelf life when processed into bread and bakery products. Patents have been applied for the process involved as it is believed by the institute that this wheat germ product could have widespread appeal in many countries including those struggling to provide drinking milk for their populations and where flour milling is carried out. Grain & Feed Milling Technology (GFMT) website will carry a full report on this exciting development in the May-June 2014 edition.
Meanwhile, some 95 people attended the first day of the 2nd Global Milling Conference and some 55 on the second day. Number were not as high as expected due to the Glance2014 (Global Animal Nutrition) Conference held on animal nutrition and involving feed manufacturing in Bangalore over the preceding three days.
However, those who did attend heard from 20 highly quality speakers on topics ranging from millers and feeding a growing world population through to methods and techniques to avoid waste in the chain of production from harvest through to final product.
Many of the presentations have been recorded on video and will be made available on the Grain & Feed Milling Technology (GFMT) website in due course. Other papers will be carried in up-coming editions of the Grain & Feed Milling Technology magazine.
Perendale Publishers and Assocom-India co-hosted this event and plan to host the next 3rd Global Milling Conference in India in September 2015.
The organisers would like to express their thanks to all the speakers and sponsors, including our main sponsor VIV India, for their support in making this a successful event!

Inspire Forum

The International Milling Directory is pleased to announce a great update from an event chaired by one of its member companies. AB Vista‘s Research Director Mike Bedford provided a great platform for the industry of feed nutrition to expose some great research for knowledge and understanding. A report direct from the forum is below in this post.

 

INSPIRE FORUM HIGHLIGHTS COMPLEX NATURE OF PLANT NSPs AND THE FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE THEIR NUTRITIONAL IMPACT

The inaugural Inspire: Non-starch Polysaccharide (NSP) Forum got underway yesterday with 80 delegates from 23 countries hearing presentations aimed at generating a deeper understanding of the complex structures of plant NSPs and the factors that influence their nutritional impact. It was the first of three sessions across the three days of the Forum looking, respectively at aspects of the NSP substrate, the impact of fibre on animal nutrition and feed enzyme solutions to improve efficacy and sustainability.

Chairing this first session, AB Vista Research Director Mike Bedford highlighted the importance of understanding how NSPs were synthesised and structured when the target was to achieve effective and targeted breakdown using exogenous enzymes.

The process by which cellulose is synthesised was outlined by Dr Staffan Persson of the Max Planck Institute. This was followed by a review of the arabinoxylan structure of cereal grains using a fluorescently-labelled inactivated xylanase by Joran Verspeet of KU Leuven, a technique which also highlighted clear evidence of specificity between different xylanases and different arabionoxylan structures.

Stan Cauvain of Baketran then discussed the experience of the breadmaking industry in using xylanases to overcome the water retaining ability of grain NSPs to maintain bread quality. It was problem that had grown considerably as demand for high fibre wholemeal bread increased during the past 30 years.

Mr Cauvain stated: “The problem is that we have very little idea of why xylanase works in breadmaking. We know how to control the results, but we don’t know exactly what is happening in terms of the interaction between the enzyme and grain quality.”

Mr Cauvain also highlighted the enormous challenge faced by his industry due to the variability in fibre content between flour batches, between flour types and between growing seasons. The inability to reliably predict response to xylanase addition – or the effect of the xylanase inhibitors known to be present in some grains – meant a heavy reliance on extensive and regular trial and error screening, a situation with considerable parallels in the feed industry.

The session closed with a presentation by Dr Per Aman of the Swedish University of Agricultural Science, who discussed the challenges faced when trying to analyse plant fibre.

“None of the methodologies currently used produce exactly the same substrate conditions as found in the animal gut,” he stated. “In terms of the characteristics important to animal nutrition, the molecular structure of the fibre component can be hugely important, as can agronomic conditions.

“For example, the branching on the xylose backbone of arabinoxylan molecules dictates the extent of viscosity effects, as well as how and where xylanases can act to break down those long-chain molecules. Differences between growing sites can also exceed varietal differences, and a detailed knowledge of these factors is essential when looking to understand xylanase activity.”
