News Bite: IFIC Foundation Takes a Bite out of BlogHer Food


The IFIC Foundation exhibited and held a special event at the recent BlogHerFood conference in Chicago to bring science-based content to this influential group.

IFIC resources on food safety and nutrition topics were shared with all 650+ attendees. In conjunction with the conference, IFIC Foundation hosted an invitation-only media event, “From Foodies to Fitness.” The event featured celebrity chef Andrew Zimmerman, who conducted a cooking demo highlighting protein-rich snacks and meals.

Protein expert Jared Dickinson, PhD, discussed protein intake, timing, and benefits for optimal health and dispelled common protein myths. (Look for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Dickinson in next month’s Food Insight Newsletter.)

IFIC Foundation’s 2015 Food and Health Survey and new resources were also highlighted.
