8th International Congress on “Pigments in Food 2016” (PIF2016), Cluj-Napoca, Romania, June 28th – to July 1st 2016


The aim of the congress is to offer good opportunities for scientists to show their advances in scientific and technological topics, related to pigments in food, from their chemical characterization, to (bio)technological production and formulation, stability, metabolism and finally to focus on health effects and benefits.

Academic and industrial scientists from all over the world are invited to submit their work via oral or poster presentation. Contributions on all aspects of pigments in food are welcomed, session’s topics being well adapted to cover six important and outstanding directions of research and technology development.
