ILPS Board&Membership General Annual Meeting 2019
will continue the cycle of annual Board&Membership Meetings, which will be
held this year at Spectral Service AG and will gather all ILPS Members from all
over the world to discuss several topics about Phospholipids and Lipids.
For more information please contact the ILPS Executive
Director Rute Azevedo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The 16th International Scientific and Practical Conference will continue the cycle of conferences initiated 20 years ago and devoted to new research in the chemistry and technologies of production and application of this unique class of natural compounds.
Functional phospholipids in the food and pharmaceutical industries
The 16th International Scientific and Practical
Conference will continue the cycle of conferences initiated 20 years ago
and devoted to new research in the chemistry and technologies of
production and application of this unique class of natural compounds.
During these years, the volume of domestic production of plant
lecithin that meets the requirements of international standards has
increased in Russia.
The use of this functional and technological additive in various
sectors of the food industry, in the production of feeds and technical
products, has increased approximately two times.
Phospholipids, as biological emulsifiers with antioxidant and
synergistic functions, have become widely used in clinical practice as
nutrients and biologically active dietary supplements.
The main goal of the organized conferences is to analyze the
scientific and technical development in this area of lipidology, to
determine the trends of scientific and technological advance.
colloid-chemical properties and technological functions of lecithins;
analytical chemistry of polar lipids and lecithins;
creation of functional and specialized purposes food and feed products;
plant polar lipids (chemical composition and biomedical properties).
Activities within the framework of the Conference:
an exhibition of products of companies producing phospholipid-based lecithins and nutraceuticals;
a competition of post-graduate and student’s works in the field of functional and food lipidomics.

The International Lecithin and Phospholipid Society (ILPS)
organized a Scientific Symposium in the historic German city of Cologne.
Highly qualified experts were present with their latest research topics
divided in 3 sessions (2 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon). Each
session had 3+ speakers, who are leading experts in their fields of
phospholipid science. The program gave time for meeting experts and
communication with colleagues.
The ILPS Scientific Symposium on Monday (27 Nov 2017) took place at
the Spectral Service AG lab/company in the city of Cologne in Germany.
The number of participants (72) exceeded the target and the capacity.
In memory of Willem van Nieuwenhuyzen († 2015), our founder
member and director, an exhaustless operator for the dissemination of
knowledge and for networking people sharing his interests in the fields
of lecithin, the ILPS created this award.
Willem was a good personal friend of many of the ILPS members.
We all will miss him.
This year Willem van Nieuwenhuyzen AWARD was given to
Prof. Dr. Mabel C. Tomás, Professor at La Plata National University and Research Scientist at CIDCA-CONICET, La Plata/Argentina.

The Phospholipid Conference in Krasnodar will be
organized in cooperation between ILPS (International Lecicthin and
Phospholipid Society) and Protein Plus from St. Petersburg at the Kuban
State University of Krasnodar. The conference program covers many topics
about alternative raw materials for phospholipid production,
phospholipid processing, medical and nutritional application, analytical
issues and a market survey.
We are sorry to say that last week at the 8th of March our founder member and director Willem van Nieuvenhuyzen passed away from his cancer disease.
The funeral service took place among family and friends last weekend.
According to his wife Jacobijn Willem has been busy until his last day
with organizing his issues and they have been able to celebrate his 70th Birthday and their 45th Wedding anniversary.
We all lost a friend, a companion, a supervisor and an exhaustless
operator for the dissemination of knowledge and for networking people
sharing his interests in the fields of lecithin. He was a charismatic,
pleasant and warmhearted person. We will miss him.
The 4th ILPS Short Course “Lecithin Functions in Technology and
Nutrition” was held at the University Conference Center “Het Pand” in
the sunny gothic center of Ghent with demonstrations in the
laboratories. The number of 70+ participants exceeded the target. View a
selection of photos.
The Changing World of Lecithins” is a 6 page paper on the world supply
changes and quality aspects of soy, sunflower and canola (rapeseed)
lecithins. The article is edited by ILPS Executive Director Willem van
Nieuwenhuyzen and published in AOCS magazine INFORM April 2014, Vol 24
(4), 254-259. If you want to learn more about lecithin, please register for the ILPS Lecithin Short Course.
The International Lecithin and Phospholipid Society (ILPS) was recently registered as a not-for-profit association in Cologne, Germany. Originally ILPS was incorporated in 1991 in the USA. The ILPS Board and Membership decided to transfer the Society registration to Europe, since most ILPS events are organized in Europe. ILPS consists of corporate and private members from Academia, Institutes and Industry in the Food, Cosmetic, Pharmaceutical and Technical sectors.
This 200 pages book is published as Volume 22 in the Oily Press Lipid Library. The Editor has selected with the support of lecithin expert Dr Michael Schneider 14 professionals for editing in total 8 chapters. The book has become an interesting combination of topics on sourcing, production and modification of the traditional soy lecithins, fundamental physical properties of phospholipids, technical emulsifying functions and biological functions of vegetable phospholipids and sphingolipids. AOCS – INFORM magazine, January 2009 edition published an extensive review. This book is a must for each student, technician and scientist, working with phospholipids or other surfactants in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics applications. The book is also important for biochemists and biologists with interest for biomembranes and phospholipid functionality in plant, animal and human cells and bodies.
