Tate & Lyle launches Fibre University

first_imgSource: Getty ImagesTate & Lyle has launched Fibre University – a modular online course designed to help food scientists tackle fibre formulation challenges.The first module, titled Fibre Fundamentals, will take place at 11am CST/ 5pm GMT on Wednesday 10 February 2021. The one-hour session will cover the basic principles of formulating with fibre, including the different types of fibre available, their processing and manufacturing performance and how to solve specific formulation challenges, such as sugar and calorie reduction, with fibre.Selecting the appropriate fibre is key to solving challenges relating to taste, texture, nutrition, processing and labelling for new and reformulated products, according to Tate & Lyle. The webinar is designed to help address these issues and provide a forum for formulators to discuss them.“Research shows that most people around the globe are not getting enough fibre in their diet and, as a result, are missing out on a host of health benefits. At the same time, as many as 52% of consumers want to increase their fibre intake. This gives food and drink manufacturers a prime opportunity to support consumers by fortifying their products with fibre,” said Dr Kavita Karnik, global head of nutrition & regulatory affairs, at Tate & Lyle.It comes amid Fibre February – an annual month-long consumer-facing campaign designed to encourage consumers to increase their fibre intake.Headway has been made on this by bakery suppliers in recent weeks as well. Co-op, for example, is swapping the bread in its own label sandwich range for a fibre-enriched one.Puratos UK, meanwhile, has recently secured a government-funded grant for a product called Maxfibre, which is made from by-products of brewery, cereal milling and fruit processing to form a natural dietary fibre in micro-powder format.Four years of work by Bridor has also come to fruition as it rolled out an enriched fibre bread range called L’Ambiote.last_img read more

Long range planning panel seeks advice

first_img December 1, 2002 Regular News Facing such issues as online legal education and figuring out the trends in pro se representation are among the many matters occupying the Bar’s Long Range Planning Committee.Chair Anthony Upshaw addressed the Board of Governors recently and invited their input on the committee’s activities.“What we basically do is look at trends, clue in the Board of Governors on where we’re going and where you should look in the future,” Upshaw said.The committee is getting more than 150 reports from sections and Bar committees on their perspective on upcoming issues, and the committee hopes to compile that into a report by next summer. The panel also wants to have a strategic retreat next year on long range planning.Some issues include the trend toward online education and whether that could work for legal education, and where pro se litigation is heading. “We’re also looking at the impact of paralegals and legal technicians and seeing how to better utilize those resources,” Upshaw said.The committee issued a report in 1998, which was approved by the board, with 38 goals, ranging from diversity to technology, and is always working to update that, he noted.“We need input from each governor,” Upshaw concluded. “We need input to let us know where you want to be in five or 10 years, and what do you want The Florida Bar to be.” Long range planning panel seeks advicecenter_img Long range planning panel seeks advicelast_img read more

Data standardization poses challenge for Satu Data Indonesia plan

first_imgIndonesia has been struggling with data scattered around different government ministries and institutions, hindering the authorities in devising data-based policies and the public in obtaining accurate data, as institutions publish different figures on the same object.The Satu Data Indonesia portal, accessible via data.go.id, aims to increase the government’s transparency and accountability by providing public access to data from various state agencies, as well as to support data-driven policy-making.The initiative was officiated in June last year when President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo signed Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 39/2019 on Satu Data Indonesia, ordering state agencies to reinforce the program with data trustees and data producers. Oktorialdi reported that only 47 of 85 state agencies had named their data trustees for the initiative, calling on the rest of the state institutions to submit the names to Bappenas.  Government agencies have reported that data standardization and interoperability, or the ability for data to be exchanged between systems, are among the challenges authorities face in establishing a data portal initiative referred to as Satu Data Indonesia (One Data Indonesia).The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), which acts as the program’s director, explained that the agency was instituting a standard on data collection and data filing between state agencies in order to increase efficiency within the system. “So far, we know that there is no standard in [our] data, whereas we hope that data can support the planning, execution, evaluation and control of [the country’s] development,” Bappenas expert staff member and secretariat coordinator of Satu Data Indonesia Oktorialdi said during a webinar on Tuesday. Under Satu Data Indonesia’s action plan, the agency planned to develop a data center as well as big data in 2021 after strengthening procedures for data collection this year. However, digital data governance has yet to be adopted equally between different state institutions, further hampering the process. “The implementation of an electronic government system (SPBE) is still being done separately or still shallow and has yet to build collaboration and integration within state agencies,” the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry’s undersecretary for institutions and governance, Rini Widyantini, said during the webinar. According to the ministry’s data, the national SPBE index stood at 2.18 in 2019, a 20 basis point increase from last year. Most ministry offices scored well on the index, with 82 percent of 34 ministries achieving the target score of above 2.6.Meanwhile, digital transformation lags in regional offices, the data show. Of the 384 regional agencies the ministry surveyed, 80 percent scored below target. To assist with the digital transformation, Rini recommended developing an integrated information technology infrastructure and increasing the human resource capacity, among other things. Indonesia’s data governance has seen improvements over the years. Indonesia ranked 88th on the United Nations’ (UN) e-government index 2020, up 19 places from 2018. The index is published by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs over a two-year period. The UN’s e-government survey states that countries in the Asian region are making progress toward digital transformation, with Indonesia and the Philippines having used digital social registry systems as gateways for social protection programs.“Digital registry systems such as these allow more transparency and credibility in the design and delivery of social protection programs,” the report says. On that note, Sudarto, the Finance Ministry’s expert staff member on organization, bureaucracy and information technology, said the ministry was in partnership with the Social Affairs Ministry to deliver social aid to almost 30 million beneficiary families. He explained during the webinar that the ministry had used existing data infrastructure, in this case, the citizenship identification number (NIK), as data reference, while striving for good data interoperability in the process.”The data must be well-organized, and there must be interoperability with the entirety of financial data,” Sudarto said.Topics :last_img read more
