Addressing Today's Nutrition and Public Health Challenges with Food Technology Innovations

Register today!  Lunch programs are popular.  Please arrive early to guarantee your spot. Seating will be first come, first serve.

Sponsored by Tate & Lyle

Tate & Lyle will sponsor a lunch symopsium at the American Society for Nutrition's Scientific Sessions at EB 2017 to discuss an "all-sector approach" to combat the rise of obesity and diet-related chronic diseases.  The two-hour program will be designed to educate and inform the target audience about the solutions that food technology can offer by developing ingredients that provide health benefits to meet public health needs.  Recent food policies note that reformuation and food-system-wide changes are necessary in order to shift dietary patterns.  Food technology produces realizable solutions for public health by providing innovative pathways to reach nutrient intake goals while satisfying consumer taste expectations.  Lunch and samples will be served.

Chair: Lisa Spence, PhD, Tate and Lyle, Hoffman Estates, IL

Unraveling the Complexities of Food Allergy: Implications to the Nutritionist, Consumer, and Food Industry

Register today!  Lunch programs are popular.  Please arrive early to guarantee your spot.  Seating will be first come, first serve.

Sponsored by the Egg Nutrition Center and the National Dairy Council

 

Chairs:  Tia M. Rains, PhD, Egg Nutrition Center and Jill Nichols, PhD, National Dairy Council

Speakers:

Daniel Rotrosen, MD, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease

Steve L. Taylor, PhD, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Virginia Stallings, MD, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe current recommendations for the introduction of potential food allergens to infants.
  2. Discuss the challenges in estimating the current prevalence of food allergies and how they are diagnosed.
  3. Describe differences between current and proposed food allergen labeling for packaged foods and implications for consumers.

 

Description:  Food allergy is a complicated, multifactorial disease and its causes, mechanisms and effects are not yet fully understood.  Public concern has grown in response to the apparent rise in global prevalence of food allergies.  The National Academies of Medicine receptly published a report titled "Finding a Path to Safety in Food Allergy: Assessment of Global Burden, Causes, Prevention, Management and Public Policy" to address what is currently known about the prevalence, diagnosis and management in addition to what research still needs to be done.  Dr. Stallings, the editor and chair of the NAM Food Allergy report, will present on the committee's findings and address gaps within the literature.  This session will also share emerging research around the topics of timing for introduction of food allergens as a way to mitigate or prevent food allergies, and a new approach to labeling allergens in packaged foods using a risk assessment framework.
