The 8th International Symposium on Deep-Fat Frying in Munich continues the long tradition of symposia since 1973. With these series of symposia
the European Federation for the Science and Technology of Lipids (Euro Fed Lipid) has established an important platform for food producers,
sciences, official and commercial laboratories, marketing and consumers to present and to discuss the latest news on deep-fat frying.
Although the process of deep-fat frying is known since nearly 4000 years and it is one of the most popular processes for food preparation with
an increasing market world-wide a lot of questions are still under discussion. The complex and dynamic process taking place at the surface of the
food but also in the oil is still not understood comprehensively. Nowadays it is realized that chemical and physical changes of fats and oils at
elevated temperatures cannot be explained by autoxidation only, but more knowledge is necessary to improve food quality. Since a remarkable part
of oil is taken up by food the focus of interest also has to be on aspects important for maintaining the oil quality.
In this context new mechanisms taking place during the frying process have to be discussed. This may help to develop heat stabilizing agents
based on natural sources and to optimize the frying process.
As a result from the last seven symposia on deep-fat frying recommendations on regulatory guidelines for the evaluation of used frying oils and
fats, but also on issues such as acrylamide or trans-fatty acids in foods or information on the frying process have been released traditionally
to achieve a better understanding of the frying process within the whole processing chain with respect to healthier and better food products.
Several of these recommendations have found their way into practice.
The technical program of the forthcoming symposium will cover all aspects necessary for a better understanding of the frying process. It will
provide a comprehensive overview on the theory and the modeling of the frying processing, but also discuss the occurrence of contaminants and
degradation products. Furthermore, the 8th symposium will show possibilities to improve the quality and heat stability of frying oils by addition
of natural compounds or filtering and oil treatment. New analytical methods for a fast and easy quality control to monitor the degradation of
oil in the fryer and probable formation of toxic compounds during frying will also be presented.
Thus, the 8th International Symposium on Deep-fat frying is intended for all persons from food producers, sciences, official and commercial
laboratories, marketing and consumers who are involved into the production of fried food, research on the frying process or the assessment of
used frying oils or interested in deep-fat frying in general. The aim of the symposium is to provide the participants with new information on frying and to discuss the latest findings in order to make the market of fried products fit for the future.
We look forward to welcoming you in Munich in September 2015.

quality of French fries was another topic of his research work. For this purpose he compared frying processes in different types of equipment.
Furthermore, he carried out frying projects together with partners from industry to test performance of oils and to develop alternative frying
processes. He was also involved in projects regarding reduction of 3-MCPD-esters and other compounds in refined oils.
Despite the fat and oil research, he has a long-term experience in confectionery manufacturing, egg processing and process modelling.
