All this allowed contrasting the different points of view on the current concept of nutraceuticals.
The sessions were attended by undergraduate, master's and doctoral students and also by different professional sectors that work with functional compounds and nutraceuticals, such as technical personnel from nutraceutical and food companies, pharmacists and nutritionists.

Its purpose is to promote knowledge of Nutraceuticals in the educational, professional and social spheres through the promotion of outreach, teaching and research activities that allow the progress and development of this discipline.
