Food has been a basic part of our existence. Intake of food ensures growth in children and youth, maintains good health throughout life. Nutrients are components of foods needed for body in adequate amounts for proper growth, reproduction and leading normal life. Nutrition includes the process from eating food to its usage in various functions of body. The science of nutrition deals with what nutrients we need, in what quantity, how to get them and how the body utilizes them. Adequate, optimum and good nutrition indicates the right amount and proportion of nutrients for proper utilization for achieving highest level of physical and mental health. First function of food is to provide energy. Body needs energy to sustain involuntary processes essential for continuing life. Food regulates the activities of the body including – heart beat, maintaining body temperature, muscle contraction, water balance, blood clotting and removal of waste products from the body. Food helps in improving the immune system and improves resistance power of the body. The use of food in the body involves three processes – digestion, absorption and utilization of nutrients in the body.

Business and organizations that produce, manage, regulate, and distribute food and beverages comprise the food and beverage production industry. As a fundamental human need, food and beverages always have played a central part in our lives. Our ancestors lived or died according to their ability to grow food, hunt for food, or fight for food. People have always sought out new sources of food. Throughout history people have identified the plants, insects, fungi, and animals in their region capable of sustaining them. In time, agrarian cultures were able to trade or sell their surplus food supplies for other goods and services, and food became an important part of the commerce of a society. As societies came into contact with each other, they also learned of different types of foods available in different parts of the world. The aim of organizing the food conferences, food meetings, food events is to provide exposure to technologies, government / institutional assistance, increase international tie-ups and to provide knowledge about recent trends in Food & beverages Sector though this food conference.

Bacteria are the most important microorganisms to the food processor. Most are harmless, many are highly beneficial, some indicate the probable presence of filth, disease organisms, spoilage and a few cause disease. There are thousands of species of bacteria, but all are single-celled and fall into three basic shapes: spherical, straight rods, and spiral rods. To see them, you need a microscope that magnifies about 1000-fold. All bacteria reproduce by dividing into two cells. The two cells then divide to become 4, 4 become 8, and so forth. Under ideal conditions, this doubling may occur as frequently as every 15 minutes, so that within 5 hours there will be more than a million cells from the original single cell. If there are 1000 original cells instead of a single one, there will be over 1 billion cells in 5 hours Some rod-shaped bacteria are capable of existing in two forms, dormant spores and active vegetative cells. Vegetative cells form spores under adverse conditions as a means of survival. Spore forms preserve the bacteria from starvation, drying, freezing, chemicals, and heat. When conditions become favourable, the spores germinate, with each spore again becoming a vegetative cell with the ability to reproduce. Among the bacteria, sporulation is not a means of reproduction since each cell forms a single spore which later germinates into a single cell again. Most sporulating bacteria that grow in the presence of air belong to the Genus Bacillus, and most that grow only in the absence of air belong to the Genus Clostridium.

The Food Economy is increasingly shaped by such new issues as sustainability, safety and quality standards, consumer health, and industry concentration. Cultural and ethical arguments gain momentum when aligned with issues such as economic welfare and stakeholder interests. The food economy grows ever more global and encompasses more elusive elements like trust, integrity, transparency, corporate social responsibility and creating emotional bonds with customers. The Food Economy is inextricably interrelated with globalisation, changes in consumer demand for food and energy, the ICT revolution, sustainability issues, and shifts in the relationship between private companies and public regulators. There are many ways to think about food which has been discussed in various food events, food conferences in the simplest sense, food is a fuel, food provides the energy needed to perform daily functions and maintain normal metabolic processes.

Nutraceuticals generally depend on the source. They can be categorized on the basis of their natural sources, pharmacological conditions, and also chemical composition of the products. Utmost they are grouped in the subsequent categories like Dietary supplements, Functional Foods, vitamins and minerals, Healing food and Pharmaceuticals. Nutraceuticals are derived from different types of herbals, fruits and marine resources. Nutrition supplements are items that are usually considered non-food items that are used to enhance your nutritional status. Supplements may include, but are not limited to, vitamins, minerals, bars, and energy drinks or sports nutrition products to boost performance. Supplements should be used along with a healthy diet, but not replace it.

Clinical Nutrition is the diet of patients in health care. Clinical in this logic mentions to the administration of patients, with not only outpatients at clinics, but also inpatients in clinics. It integrates mainly the systematic arenas of nourishment and dietetics. It goals to have a healthy energy equilibrium in patients, as well as giving adequate quantities of additional nutrients for instance vitamins, protein, minerals. The global clinical nutrition market is estimated to be USD XX million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 51,174 million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of over 4.8% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2022.

When most people think of malnutrition, they often think of someone who is suffering from under-nutrition. Under-nutrition occurs when a person consumes a diet that does not meet the necessary requirements for the amount of essential nutrients or calories a person needs to remain healthy. This type of malnutrition can occur when people are not eating enough food, or when the food they are eating does not contain well-balanced nutrients. The World Health Organization estimates that one out of every three people is suffering from a deficiency in one or more essential nutrients. The symptoms associated with under-nutrition vary by deficiency, but all deficiencies will eventually cause permanent harm to the body. Throughout the world, there are three common deficiencies that people suffer from. Lack of vitamin A in the diet is a very large problem worldwide and results in many cases of blindness in children each year. A deficiency in iron can cause a person to become anaemic, which can result in fatigue, increased risk of infection and increased risk of haemorrhaging during childbirth. Iodine deficiency is also very common, with one-third of the human population suffering from a lack of iodine. Iodine is important for proper functioning of the thyroid gland, which is responsible for producing hormones that manage the body's metabolic rate. A lack of iodine can cause stunted growth, mental delays and the creation of goitres, which are when the thyroid glands at the base of the neck become swollen.

A dietician (or dietician) is an expert in dietetics; that is, human nutrition and the regulation of diet. A dietician alters their patient's nutrition based upon their medical condition and individual needs. Dieticians are the only healthcare professionals licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems. For example, safely regulating the diet of a patient with Crohn's disease is out of physician's scope of expertise, thus a dietician must be called to permit any changes based upon their knowledge of nutritional biochemistry. Dieticians work in a variety of settings from clinical to community and public policy to media communications. The aim of organizing the Nutrition conferences, Nutrition meetings, Nutrition events is to provide exposure to technologies, government / institutionalassistance, increase international tie-ups and to provide knowledge about recent trends in Food & beverages Sector though this food conference.

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height. Obesity occurs over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active. Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you are obese, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases.
