New dietary guidelines are further directing shifts in consumption of dietary fats. This year, as the government becomes increasingly involved in dietary guidance, front-of-pack labeling initiatives, and menu labeling, it is more important than ever to have an innovative response to improve the healthfulness of products.
Oils offer a critical solution in providing a markedly improved healthfulness of a product. There are novel oils in development, as well as new oils being adopted in the marketplace. This program will provide critical insights on the emerging oils and the innovative solutions in the pipeline that can improve labels.
Learn about global dietary recommendations, US Dietary Guidelines, nutrition rating systems, the role of fatty acids in health, and up-to-date trends for integrating healthy oils in a wide array of applications.
