Where: Massey University - Manawatū Campus, University Avenue, Palmerston North

Restrictions: All Ages

From the heart of food research in New Zealand we present A series of talks and discussions in physiology, nutrition, food processing, safety, sustainability and consumer behaviour shaping the development of NZ food industry.

First in the series:
Physical processes in the gastrointestinal tract by Roger Lentle, Prof. of Digestive Biomechanics at Massey University, who will talk and answer some of the common questions:
- How does the gut dissemble solid food to get the nutrients out of it?
- Why do we chew some foods and not others?
- Why does our liver squirt detergent into the small intestine?
- Why does the western diet make our colon go baggy?

Come join the talk and discussion, hands on activities and snacks. Kids welcome!
