Fortification Workshop: New Findings and Implications for Vitamins and Minerals

Washington, DC, USA

In an environment of over-consumption, it is of great interest that Americans simultaneously fail to meet the Dietary References Intakes (DRIs) for many nutrients. Fortification is a way to supplement intakes of the population at large without having to rely on consumer choice. The Forticiation Committee’s workshop will provide attendees with an improved understanding of the value of fortification and the success of current fortification efforts and practices. Additionally the workshop will address the potential future role of fortification in nutrient adequacy, which includes benefits and risks.

Register for the complete series here.

Webinars will be held from 3pm to 430pm ET across four Thursdays. Time is reserved for Questions & Answers in each session. Details for each session are noted below.  The series is free and open to the community.

Current research on aging reveals it is possible to extend healthspan while delaying, and in some cases, preventing many chronic diseases associated with aging through nutrition and interventions targeted at cellular degeneration.

This webinar series is a collaboration with the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University (HNRCA). HNRCA is a leader in food, nutrition, and healthy aging research and has trained hundreds of Tufts University students who have become successful in academia, industry, and government. Join current scientists from the HNRCA as they share their latest research on how food and nutrition are critical determinants to a healthy and independent lifestyle for older adults. Talks will present research that focuses on the biology of aging at the cellular level all the way to how to directly impact healthspan through diet and physical activity.

 

We know age is a risk factor for many chronic diseases and research also shows that disease can accelerate the aging process and shorten a person's healthspan. During this webinar we will examine the role of inflammation and other cellular processes in older adults and possible interventions, including diet, that may slow or stop degenerative diseases and extend quality of life. Understanding the biology of aging is a vital part of unlocking many of the unknowns associated with aging.

This webinar addresses the fact that older adults need to reduce their daily calorie intake. How do you do this and maintain a healthy body weight and be sure we address bone and muscle health? To maintain bone health, it's vital to obtain calcium combined with vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. Continuing their ground-breaking research on musculoskeletal health, HNRCA scientists will share their latest findings on the detrimental effect acid-producing diets have on bone and muscle and considering what we have learned from the recent vitamin D mega-trials.

The risk of age-related eye diseases such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma can be reduced by eating a dietary pattern with plenty of fruits and vegetables and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains. HNRCA investigators have shown that diets high in simple carbs such as white bread and carbonated beverages create spikes in blood sugar leading to widespread inflammation, a condition linked to age-related macular degeneration. In this webinar they will share novel findings on the link between the gut microbiota and eye health and possible interventions to delay eye disease in older adults.

Regular exercise and healthy dietary patterns that focus on whole grains, berries, leafy green vegetables and healthy fats are proving to have a positive effect in improving or delaying cognitive decline in older adults. HNRCA researchers will share observational findings as well as the results of community-based programs promoting the benefits of physical activity on cognition. In this webinar HNRCA scientists will also discuss promising results of animal studies involving the generation of new brain cells that may lead to interventions that improve memory function in older adults.
