With the foundation of a new scientific advisory body, the international flavoring manufacturer Symrise is expanding its competencies in the area of health-oriented food. The Scientific Advisory Board for Health and Nutrition is composed of internationally renowned scientists, who advise Symrise during the development of new ingredients for supplements and healthy and functional food products. The external specialists provide Symrise researchers with support in implementing new scientific data as quickly as possible in actual products, and they also give the researchers support in developing new technologies.

The members of the Scientific Advisory Board for Health and Nutrition are Gerhard Rogler, Professor for Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the UniversitätsSpital in Zurich, Christian Barth, long-standing Scientific Director of the German Institute of Human Nutrition (DIfE), as well as Ulrich Noehle, independent scientific consultant (previously CEO of Nordzucker and the Director of Nutritional Science, Food Legislation, and Quality Management at Nestlé Germany).

“We are very pleased to have won such world-class experts as members of our new advisory board,” said Simone Peschke, Head of the Symrise Competence Center for Health & Nutrition. “Their expertise in the areas of medicine, chemistry, and nutrition ideally complement each other and will provide valuable stimuli for our research and development work.”
