Summary of Day 2 - 14 November, Session: "Breeding & Technology"

The areas of for Day 2 are: a) how to better leverage cereal bran and high extraction flours in cases where the use of WG is too challenging; b) how to use traditional WG-based products as source of inspiration for new WG product development; c) sensory improvement of WG products may in some cases actually reduce nutritional value: where are the limits?; d) what are the main sustainability issues linked to WG production?
