IAFNS is supporting one session and two posters at NUTRITION 2019:

Scientific Session: The Many Faces of Personalized Nutrition

Saturday, June 8th, 2019
8:30am - 11:00am
Ballroom I/II

Nutrition tailored to an individual is evolving into a diverse array of options ranging from one-on-one professional engagement to high tech/high touch. Although nutrigenomics to identify health outcome risk potential that might be modified by diet has received a lot of attention, there are many other high potential approaches available and for which the science and application to the public are successfully advancing.

The purpose of this session is to feature a diversity of options in the personalized nutrition tool box. The many faces to be featured range from high tech personalized nutrigenomics and metabolic measures that help determine likely response to dietary choices, to the rapidly developing future of do-it-yourself tools designed to motivate and track behavioral choices.

Bioactives RIS Group Update:

Monday, June 10th, 2019
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Room 314/315

The IAFNS Standing Committee on Bioactive Recommendations, a group of volunteer experts, will update the American Society for Nutrition Bioactives Research Interest Section on its development of a framework for developing bioactive intake recommendations. The framework is intended to provide a globally relevant process and procedure for translating evidence into consumption recommendations for bioactive dietary components that have demonstrated benefits to human health but do not have documented symptoms of deficiency.
