During this webinar, health professionals will gain an understanding of the Gen Z consumer segment as it relates to their demographics, behavior, and learning styles around health and wellness. Attendees will learn about the latest science and research as it pertains to health claims supporting immunity, calm, sustained energy, and digestive health – all important topics for Gen Z.

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.
