In an obese individual, the amount of NEFA, glycerol, hormones, cytokines, proinflammatory substances, and other substances that are involved in the development of insulin resistance are increased. Insulin resistance with impairment of β-cell function leads to the development of diabetes. Gaining weight in early life is associated with the development of type 1 diabetes. NEFA is a cornerstone in the development of insulin resistance and in the impairment of β-cell function. New approaches in managing and preventing diabetes in obese individuals must be studied and investigated based on these facts.

Track 20: Nutrition & Food Sciences

Food science is the connected science given to the investigation of nutrients. The foundation of Food Technologists characterizes sustenance science as "the train in which the building, organic, and physical sciences are utilized to ponder the idea of food, the reasons for weakening, the standard basic food preparing, and the change of nourishments for the devouring open". Food science is the investigation of the physical, organic, and chemical makeup of food and the ideas fundamental nourishment preparing. Food Technology is the utilization of nutrition science to the determination, protection, preparing, bundling, appropriation, and utilization of safe nourishment.

Market analysis

Scope and Importance of nutrition studies:

Over the preceding ten to fifteen years, sales in the worldwide nutrients and supplements marketplace have visible an amazing spike. This has recommended more than a few of new gamers to step into the market with merchandise that ability to be the tincture of adolescents, health, and energy. The Asia-Pacific market for clinical nutrition was estimated at USD 8.87 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 13.07 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 8.06 %.

Why Osaka, Japan?

Japan is one of the major economic powers of the world and the most developed country in the Asian region. In recent years, Japan has been experiencing a demographic and cultural shift and is now facing a rapidly aging population. The Japanese nutrition market is a well  developed market, still there is a strong need to introduce new products with more health benefits at a low cost. The level of health in Japan is due to a number of factors including cultural habits, isolation, and a universal health care system. John Creighton Campbell, professor at the University of Michigan and Tokyo University, told the New York Times in 2009 that Japanese people are the healthiest group on the planet.Japanese visit a doctor nearly 14 times a year, more than four times as often as Americans. Life expectancy in 2013 was 83.3 years - among the highest on the planet.

The dietary supplements market continues to grow at a rapid pace as a result of increasing consumer awareness of a good diet for healthy living. The global dietary supplements market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, accounting for US$ 252,100 Mn by 2025, reflecting a CAGR of 7.4%. Consumers are moving towards a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and a nutritious diet coupled with an influx of integrative medicine and complementary alternative medicine.

Obesity rate in Japan

Only 3.6 percent of Japanese have a body mass index (BMI) over 30, which is the international standard for obesity. The average person in Japan consumes over 200 fewer calories per day than the average American. Food prices are substantially higher in Japan, but the traditional Japanese dietary habits, although changing, are also healthier. The Japanese are also far more physically active than Americans, but not because they do more planned physical exercise. They walk more as part of their daily lives. They walk more because the cost of driving an automobile is far higher in Japan, whereas public transportation is typically very convenient, but normally requires more walking than the use of a car. In terms of policy solutions, economic incentives could be structured to encourage Americans to drive less and use public transportation more, which would typically also mean walking more.
