Dietary advice on fat—particularly saturated fat—seems to change daily. This can be disconcerting and confusing for consumers as well as healthcare providers. Current research suggests that total fat is not a risk factor of heart disease. This talk will provide scientific, evidence-based research about this nutrient, and give practical guidance on how to include whole-fat dairy in a heart-healthy diet.
After the session participants will:
- Explain the saturated fat guidance according to the current dietary guidelines and whether all types increase health risks, or if risk is dependent upon which foods saturated fat comes from.
- Understand the latest research around whole-fat dairy versus low-fat dairy and its contribution to heart-health.
- Communicate how to include whole-fat dairy in balanced eating patterns to patients through culinary applications of dairy as a single food group and in recipe development.
