- This year, the 2010 US Dietary Guidelines for Americans will be issued by the federal government. Included will be updated recommendations based on a review of the science by the Subcommittee on Fatty Acids. This will shape how Americans eat and the products they demand over the next decade and will impact not only which fats should be limited in the diet, but also which ones are essential to include.
- As healthy oils have become more mainstream, more attention has been given to their value in foods, their role in improving nutrition, and how they are affecting labels.
- Learn about up-to-date science on the role of fatty acids in health, new clinical data specific to healthy oils, and state-of-the-art trends for formulating healthier functional products for a wide array of applications.
