I recently attended the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE), the world’s largest annual meeting of food and nutrition professionals. Over 13,000 registered dietitian nutritionists, nutrition researchers, policy makers, health care providers, and industry leaders attend this four-day event. Adding to the excitement, the Academy was celebrating its 100th year anniversary.
Each day of FNCE is packed with research, educational presentations, lectures, debates, expert lead panel discussions, demonstrations, and a huge product expo. This year, the expo portion of the event drew more than 390 food and nutrition related exhibitors. It’s here that new products and innovations are launched and food trends come to life.
