At InFlavour, you will embark on a remarkable journey through the vast and captivating realm of food and food ingredients. Prepare to expand your knowledge, experience new flavours and gain insights that will transform and enhance your understanding of the culinary world.
The importance of food in everyday life is undeniable. It not only provides the essential nutrients and energy for basic health, but also plays a major role in shaping culture. Food brings people together, strengthens relationships and creates shared memories. Additionally, it can have a powerful effect on mental wellbeing – soul food provides comfort during difficult times and increases feelings of joy and contentment. Moreover, the production of food has significant environmental implications which need to be taken into consideration. It is essential to be mindful when making decisions related to food choices about the impact that food has on all these things, i.e., health, the environment and relationships.
As you navigate this expo on October 29-31 in Riyadh, you will rediscover how the production and consumption of food can also have ramifications on both short and long-term health. From fruits and vegetables to processed products like fast food, packaged meals or snacks—every food item is made up of several different food ingredients.
Delve into the world of food ingredients at InFlavour, where you will encounter the most common types of food on the food ingredients list, including natural, organic, and unprocessed ingredients; preservatives; synthetics; and additives.
- Natural ingredients are derived from plants and animals.
- Organic ingredients come from farms that abide by specific rules related to soil quality, pest control, and other farming practices.
- Unprocessed food items do not have any added chemicals or other substances, so they may be close to their original state, or in a minimally processed form such as frozen vegetables.
- Commonly used preservatives in processed foods preserve flavour, texture, or colour and can include sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, ascorbic acid, and more.
- Synthetic, or bioengineered food ingredients, are created in a laboratory environment to mimic an ingredient found in nature.
- Additives are used to enhance flavours or add colour to foods.

Learn how natural, organic, and unprocessed food ingredients are free from synthetic substances and preservatives that can be detrimental to health over time. Additionally, see why whole food ingredients tend to have higher nutritional content than processed alternatives due to minimal processing practices, for example canned tomatoes may have lower levels of lycopene than fresh tomatoes. Whether you're a seasoned industry veteran or an aspiring entrepreneur with a food startup business, discover how using more natural ingredients is better for the environment, since they have a shorter food chain and do not contain artificial chemicals.
At InFlavour you can engage with exhibitors, listen to industry speakers, ask questions, and witness firsthand how:
- Sourcing local, in-season produce is a good way to ensure the best available value and flavour.
