Bologna, June 13-15, 2018. Bio2 participates at the 1st International Conference of Wheat Landraces for Healthy Food Systems, which brings together like-minded scientists to discuss the topics of landraces, including modern populations, ancient and heritage wheat with a focus on health and nutrition as well as natural flavors and aromas.
These scientists have recognized the many problems that many modern wheat varieties are causing and have been studying alternatives to this kind of modern wheat as well as current industrialized farming systems and high speed, high volume food processing models.
Researchers and expert scientists from research institutes, academia and industry have been invited to present their recent findings and visions about the research, development, processing of wheat landraces within 6 subject areas: wheat, production, processing, nutritional and medical considerations, economic and market perspective.
As part of the 1st International Conference of Wheat Landraces for Healthy Food Systems, the local host planned a field day to showcase a variety of wheat landraces, including those sent in by conference participants.
Here the poster of the BIO2 project presenting the first agronomic, nutritional and chemical results of the first year of experimentation.
