NutraIngredients' interactive and FREE broadcast series focusing on immunity begins today, with the first APAC edition on clinical trials and emerging research coming live from our Singapore regional HQ.

This year’s series will feature 10 broadcasts, with three coming from NutraIngredients-Asia’s regional HQ in Singapore.

NutraIngredients-Asia Editor-in-Chief Gary Scattergood said: “We will be shining the spotlight on the vital topic of immunity – with a focus on clinical research, botanicals and the microbiome.

“With consumer demand for immunity-boosting products soaring, this series will bring together leading experts to assess the existing scientific evidence, the scope for new product development, the opportunity for gold-standard clinical research, and the marketing and regulatory challenges across the region.”
