IUFoST Scientific Information Bulletins (SIBs) explain the scientific principles involved in a topic, underpinned by the scientific expertise of the authors of each SIB and including provision of key and scientifically reliable online and other sources of additional information. Each SIB is prepared by an expert or small team of experts selected by the IUFoST Scientific Council. Each is reviewed and approved by the IUFoST Scientific Council.

SIBS present authoritative science on emerging and headline food science issues.  They are produced for legislators, consumers, food scientists, technologists, engineers, food science departments and the more than 300,000 members of IUFoST Adhering Bodies worldwide.
