This session will focus on the impact of nutrition on gastrointestinal (GI) health, outlining risks associated with unhealthy diets and calling for food reformulation policies to improve (digestive) health. The session will particularly introduce lifestyle-related GI diseases and disruptive innovations in the GI space around creating gut balance by modulating the microbiome. The latest innovations in therapeutic GI treatment and prevention, looking into the intake of oral antibodies and use of probiotics and prebiotics, will be showcased. On the policy side, the session will highlight Israel’s innovative nutrition policy, providing a comparative overview of nutrition policy from the EU and beyond.
