NEWS BITE: Food Insight Took FNCE by Storm!

IFIC Foundation enjoyed meeting many of the more than 8,000 Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTR) that attended this year’s Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE) in Atlanta, GA. Many of you visited our booth and took our ‘What’s Your Health Reality?’ quiz, which classifies your diet and health habits according to well-known reality TV shows, including American “Health” Idol, “Health” Apprentice, and “Health” Survivor. The good news is that if you missed taking our health reality quiz, you can still take the quiz now online and learn more about all the health reality profiles!

We also led two educational sessions on current food and nutrition topics, including a session titled, “TRANSitioning to No Partially Hydrogenated Oils (PHOs)” on PHOs and Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) ingredients (For more on GRAS, visit our new infographic) and a session titled, “Communicating with Millennials: Are They Listening?” on perceptions of Millennial consumers about food and health, based on our consumer research, to develop effective nutrition communications.

We hope to see you next year in Nashville!
