Venue: 
Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan

On Italy and Japan, ‘gluten free’ products and import/export trends

 

Flour has been for many years the core of the Mediterranean cuisine, but the average consumption among the Italians is diminishing every year. Many gluten-free products entered the market fostering the debate about flour’s benefits and risks, and new diets are becoming a trend. As every other ingredient, flour needs a correct processing method in order to be healthy and safe for the consumers. During the seminar, organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan, our experts will also compare Italian flours with their Japanese counterparts, with some trade data about the two Countries. A bread and pasta-making workshop will follow, including a tasting session.
