Congress program

Prof. dr. Nataša Poklar Ulrih, one of the 11 keynote speakers, wrote in the summary of the lecture entitled New approaches to increasing the bioavailability of bioactive substances: “The market for natural products has grown tremendously in recent years. Bioactive compounds found in natural products have outstanding properties, such as beneficial nutritional, medicinal and structural properties, as well as antimicrobial and antioxidant activity. Bioactive compounds are often poorly soluble and stable and have low bioavailability. Low stability, especially during storage, leads to the loss of the active ingredient, the formation of metabolites without activity and, in extreme cases, the formation of toxic metabolites. In this review, we will present some new approaches to increase the stability of bioactive compounds such as pantothenic acid and folic acid, and their protection against adverse environmental conditions using lipids and/or polymer matrices."
