ConfectioneryNews will be chairing a debate on the latest developments in cocoa flavanol science and the potential for better-for-you chocolate at nutraceutical trade show Vitafoods next month.

The event will take place at the Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland on 6 May.

On the panel is Professor Claudio Ferri, director of the Division of Internal Medicine & Nephrology and School of Internal Medicine at University of L’Aquila. Prof Ferri has published scientific papers on the effects of dark chocolate consumption on cardiovascular health and cognitive function.

He will be joined by Ieme Blondeel, project innovation lead of Acticoa at Barry Callebaut. Chocolate supplier Barry Callebaut last year won an EU blood flow health claim for cocoa flavanols in dark chocolate and cocoa beverages. It sells flavanol-rich chocolate through its Acticoa brand.

Euromonitor ingredients analyst Lauren Bandy completes the panel and will discuss the commercial potential of high flavanol chocolate.

The event is free-to-attend for all Vitafoods visitors. The debate will also be recorded and highlights posted on the ConfectioneryNews site.
