We are thrilled to announce an exceptional opportunity for professionals in nutrition, food science and technology, hosted at The Richardson Centre for Food Technology and Research in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This inaugural North American training workshop is a collaborative effort between the University of Manitoba, The Manitoba Strategic Research Chair in Sustainable Protein, and Agroscope Switzerland, CSIC Spain, Teagasc Ireland, and INRAE.

This workshop centers on the INFOGEST 2.0 digestion protocol, a globally recognized method for simulating the human gastrointestinal process and evaluating food digestion. While the focus of the workshop will be on digestion and measurement protocols for protein and amino acids*, you will also gain knowledge on the foundations of the digestion protocol. This workshop presents a valuable opportunity for growth and learning in the field.
