A look at innovating nutrition for Indonesia
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have catalysed action among stakeholders across the public and private sectors. Now more than ever, leading companies are interested in sustainability as a business driver instead of a ‘check the box’ exercise.
Working together in partnership to bring better nutrition to people around the world will be essential to achieving the SDGs, especially Goals 2 and 3 “Zero Hunger and “Good Health and Well-being”. With roughly 70 percent of the world’s malnourished children living in Asia, it’s an area that needs extra attention.
This inaugural SEAChange webinar will look at innovative solutions for better nutrition in Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia – where many live on less than 5 USD a day.
We will look at ways that food companies can develop financially sustainable business models to provide affordable nutritious food products to low- and middle-income consumers in Indonesia. The webinar will also review nutritional status of Indonesia people and current government interventions.
Topics will include:
-Consumer understanding of nutrition and availability of affordable nutritious products
-Criteria for a successful nutritious product in Indonesia, i.e. taste, price, communication
-Innovative distribution channels and marketing strategies
-Success stories/best practices in Indonesia

Across the globe, omega-3 intake is lower than recommended. This means a large proportion of the population is missing out on the wide range of health benefits offered by omega-3s. Omega-3s have been linked to the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for more deaths worldwide than any other condition.
Join us for the next in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Philip Calder, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Brent MacDonald, discuss how omega-3s can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports your health; however, intake still remains low among consumers globally. There is an ongoing discussion about the optimal vitamin E status and its role in addressing liver and brain health beyond nutritional recommendations.
New and ongoing research suggests that vitamin E at higher doses may help individuals at risk, such as those with age-related macular degeneration, cognitive impairment, and non-alcoholic fatty liver. It is important to revisit the required intake levels for vitamin E for these conditions and further research is needed to support qualified health claims.
Join us for the first in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly discuss the emerging health benefits of vitamin E.

Join us for our first webinar on brain health, presented by Professor David Smith, Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford, who is accompanied by DSM’s Manfred Eggersdorfer, Professor for Healthy Ageing at the University Medical Center Groningen, and Brent MacDonald, Director Global Marketing, Nutritional Lipids.
With an increasingly aging population, brain health is a greater concern for consumers, as well as the medical and scientific communities than ever before. This can manifest in individuals of all ages, from impaired brain development in early life, to increased risk of cognitive decline in the elderly population. Evidence continues to highlight the role that good nutrition can play in protecting brain health. Key nutrients, such as nutritional lipids, have been shown to be important in supporting fetal brain development and in slowing the rate of brain atrophy in older adults. Nutritional lipids are crucial components of the brain, and B vitamins may have a disease-modifying effect in the prevention of cognitive decline. B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids also interact to protect the aging brain.
The webinar will present the latest research and current trends in brain health. The experts will then discuss the importance of nutrition in supporting brain health and explore the impact of long-term nutritional intervention as a valid approach to the prevention of dementia.

The global agriculture sector has encountered challenges with the lack of adequate food for the growing malnourished population, the continued radical decrease in the areas of global arable land, and a dearth of technology that supports increased productivity and reduced labor dependency. These challenges are being addressed by integrating farming with technologies that provide decision support systems, effective farm monitoring, crop management, improved farm household income and farm output, and an overall improvement in the efficiency of the agricultural system. Critical factors for successfully exploiting opportunities in the smart agriculture sector include providing a means to enable continuous monitoring, enabling real-time data collection, increasing automation of crop cultivation and livestock production systems, and effectively demonstrating increased farmer return on investment.Read more >

La malnutrición es un problema general a nivel mundial, ya que las personas no consumen el nivel suficiente de nutrientes esenciales. A su vez, la obesidad se ha convertido en una preocupación creciente porque se consumen demasiados alimentos para el nivel de actividad. A este ritmo, la sociedad actual no podrá cumplir con los objetivos de la Asamblea Mundial de la Salud (WHA) 2025 en materia de nutrición y es esencial que los programas de nutrición se desarrollen aún más para mejorar la situación nutricional. La fortificación de los alimentos es una manera efectiva de producir alimentos altamente nutritivos y combatir la malnutrición y así lograr un mejor desarrollo socioeconómico. La industria de alimentos, bebidas y suplemento dietario cumple una función clave en la promoción de la nutrición de la salud pública al desarrollar opciones nutritivas, saludables y asequibles para los consumidores.
En este seminario web informativo, el experto independiente Alfonso Valenzuela Bonomo junto con Hector Cori de DSM, director de Nutrition Science & Advocacy LATAM, debatirán sobre la necesidad de la colaboración entre sectores (gobierno, organizaciones civiles y empresas) para combatir la malnutrición.
Today’s consumer is more health conscious than ever, with 62% being concerned about their current health and 73% worried about their health over the next five years. However, health is a multifaceted topic and primary health concerns can change throughout a person’s life time, meaning their nutritional needs also evolve. Health concerns differ from country to country and range from worries about weight to eye health.
Join us on September 15th for our webinar on our new survey, which collected data from almost 7,000 participants across 10 countries in the EMEA region to uncover what the population focuses on the most when it comes to health. Presented by DSM’s Maria Pavlidou, Head of Communications HNH EMEA, and and David Paxton, Senior Global Consumer and Markets Insight Manager, the webinar will discuss the change in health concerns during different life stages and by country, as well as revealing the implications for the supplementation industry.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.
Join us on May 19th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

Vitamin D intake is low among the world’s population, which is a major contributor to clinical deficiency and a persistently high prevalence of low vitamin D status, particularly during wintertime at high (or low) latitude.
Vitamin D deficiency contributes to the development of nutritional rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, both seriously debilitating conditions that are completely preventable with an adequate dietary supply of vitamin D and calcium. Regardless of which international recommended intake is selected, the current supply of vitamin D in commonly consumed foods makes it unfeasible for most people to meet their dietary requirements for vitamin D without supplementation.
Emerging scientific evidence from the EC-funded ODIN project suggests that many foods, including fish, eggs, meats as well as dairy products could be part of a public health strategy for vitamin D deficiency prevention in the population. This would positively impact public health in a cost-effective and inclusive way.
While most European countries are impacted by suboptimal vitamin D status, Finland is the exception. In 2003, the country introduced a national regulation which includes mandatory fortification of milk and margarine spreads. The population has now achieved a vitamin D status of 75nmol/L. Recently, the Swedish National Food Agency (NFA) proposed to introduce a similar regulation that will go a step further by extending the products subject to mandatory vitamin D fortification.

Of the 100 million Americans who consume gluten-free products, only around 25 percent have a gluten intolerance or wheat allergy (or believe they do)*. Therefore, those who voluntarily go gluten-free are driving market growth. To satisfy the quality demands of these consumers, it is essential to replicate the experience, shelf life and nutrition of gluten-containing products. This presentation will focus on the functionality of flours, starches, proteins and hydrocolloids in gluten-free products, along with case studies and formulation guidelines to offer high-quality solutions to gluten-free challenges.
