On Tuesday 14th of June 2022, the ASN’s flagship annual meeting Nutrition Live 2022 will begin. Three days of online events, and opportunities to stay up-to-date and participate in sessions, workshops, and other programs most relevant in nutrition science.
Hot topics related to food, nutrition, sustainable healthy diets or climate changes will be at stakes and we will be very happy to cover two symposia.
Climate/environment, health, agriculture and improved nutrition
Organized on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 – 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM EDT, with the participation of Daniel Raiten (Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, USA), John Finley, PhD (USDA Agricultural Research Service, USA) and Kristie Ebi, PhD, MPH (University of Washington, USA)
Next level health solutions: the magic of the matrix
More and more, scientific evidence is revealing that the food matrix – the interaction between the nutrients, bioactive components, and physical structure of a food – can impact health in significant and unexpected ways beyond its individual nutrients. This evolution in the understanding of nutrition research is arising as key authoritative agencies reevaluate the definition of healthy foods and dietary patterns. This program will explore the emerging research surrounding the relationship between the food matrix and health, with a particular focus on the dairy food matrix and its bioactive components. In particular, the complex role of the food matrix on physiologic health markers, such as cardiometabolic disease risk, inflammation, immunity and the gut microbiome will be discussed. To conclude, gaps in knowledge needed to improve scientific understanding of the complex and synergistic health effects of the food matrix and the current generalizations defining a healthy food will be critically evaluated. With the participation of Moises Torres-Gonzalez, PhD. (National Dairy Council, USA), Hannah D. Holscher, PhD, RD (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA), Emma L. Feeney, PhD (University College Dublin, Ireland), Arne Vernon Astrup, MD, DMSc (Novo Nordisk Foundation) and Hari Meletharayil, PhD (National Dairy Council, USA)
Stay tuned… we will find new content related to thoses conferences on our website in a few days and on our social media.
