Book presentation & Lecture Dr. Fritz Treiber: Food Future

Dr. Fritz Treiber, Dr. Fritz Treiber Studiengangsleiter für "Ernährung, Gesundheit & Konsum"

The molecular biologist Dr. Fritz Treiber from the Graz Taste Laboratory will give an entertaining lecture and present his new book Movefood.
The fine way to eat – despite swallowing difficulties (16.03.2023, Verlag Schulz-Kirchner).

Steak from cell culture or gelled coffee with flavoured mouth spray as dessert.
In this lecture, Fritz Treiber ventures a look into the future. High-tech food from cell culture will be examined as well as
optimised food for people with swallowing difficulties. These are becoming more and more common in an ageing society.
The first solutions are already available…the future is closer than we think…but is it affordable for all citizens?
