UMAMI TRENDS & OLFACTION:

OPPORTUNITIES & PERSPECTIVES  OF THE 5th SENSE FOR THE FLAVOR INDUSTRIES

 

It is a great pleasure to invite you to attend Olfaction & Issues 2010, which will be held in Paris in November 4-5, 2010.

Why organizing a conference on olfaction?

Breakthroughs are more and more numerous each year. That’s why it’s interesting to focus on potential applications for these advances. Olfaction could be one of these applications. Today, this sense begins to interest industrials and scientists.

Many breakthroughs have helped to understand olfactory mechanisms and physiological and psychological responses. The efficacy of human sense of smell, very complex and quite unknown mechanism, has been studied since few years and has enabled to discover amazing effects. The opportunities in the market are now becoming very hopeful.

For the treatment of obesity, olfactory gastric receptors have been identified as satiety modulators. May olfaction have an effect for other applications as stress, ageing or addiction?
