Session Description:

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death for adults in the U.S. and Canada. To address this public health issue, and to highlight the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, CanolaInfo presents a student competition for IFT Student Association members. Through this competition, students are asked to create heart-healthy food products that are low in saturated fat and free of trans fat. The goal of this competition is to showcase how the food industry can position itself to help consumers comply with the forthcoming Dietary Guidelines’ recommendation of saturated fat comprising 7% of total daily calories. The three finalist teams will feature their presentations at Wellness 12:

  • Cornell University for Hummus+
  • The Ohio State University for Morning Glory
  • University of California, Davis for Torteoat
