2010 Belfort Lecture

Basic Insights in Cereal Non-Starch Polysaccharides and Their Conversions as a Basis for Progress in Cereal Based Biotechological Processes

Lecturer: Dr. Jan Delcour | May 12, 2010

Dr. Jan Delcour gave his May 12, 2010 presentation "Basic Insights in Cereal Non-Starch Polysaccharides and Their Conversions as a Basis for Progress in Cereal Based Biotechological Processes" as part of the Belfort Lecture Series. Dr. Delcour is Professor of Food Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. Dr. Delcour obtained B.Sc. (1977), M.Sc. (1980), and Ph.D. (1985) degrees in Food Science and Technology from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven where he now is responsible for the Laboratory of Food Chemistry and Biochemistry. Dr. Delcour's research focuses on cereal constituents and the way they affect quality and nutritional profile of cereal-derived products such as bread, malt, beer, and animal feed. Dr. Delcour is co-author of over 325 original peer reviewed international publications, and of more than 20 patent applications and/or patents. He was awarded the Excellence in Teaching and William F. Geddes Memorial Awards as well as the Thomas Burr Osborne Medal of AACC International. He has a track record in the development of novel technologies for the food industry from concept stage till industrial application. Examples include the patented and licensed discovery of xylanase inhibitors, and the development of arabinoxylan oligosaccharide as a novel and wheat derived prebiotic. Jan Delcour is co-founder and Chairman of the Science Advisory Board of FUGEIA (www.fugeia.be) and, with R. Carl Hoseney co-authored the 3rd Edition of the textbook "Principles of Cereal Science and Technology" (AACC International, St. Paul, MN, 2010).
