Event Description

The AOCS Pulse Science and Technology Forum is a brand new event offered by the American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS) in cooperation with the Global Pulse Confederation, Pulse Canada, Protein Industries Canada and the Protein Highway. The inaugural Pulse Forum will be held November 5-7, 2019, in Toronto, Canada.

As the global population continues to grow, the demand for plant proteins will rise, necessitating rapid developments in the science and technology of alternative proteins, including those sourced from pulse crops. Join your colleagues from around the globe to explore the future of pulses and access the latest knowledge on the analysis, nutrition and applications of plant proteins.
Key takeaways will include:

  • Applications in human health
  • Labeling, legal requirements and quality control
  • Marketing nutritional benefits to consumers
  • Regulatory and economic frameworks required for success
  • Scientific best practices and analytical methods

To Clean or Not to Clean? Managing DON in Grain Corn

A number of growers cleaned corn this fall in efforts to reduce DON.
