Join us at FNCE®


Join the Research Dietetic Practice Group for a pre-conference symposium sponsored by BENEO Institute on October 26 in Philadelphia!

The gut microbiome and prebiotics: a powerful synergy for health and prevention  

Our gut is home to the largest community of microbes that play a key role in maintaining host health and metabolic balance. In this symposium, you will learn what prebiotics are and what science demonstrates as their role in supporting health and in managing metabolic disease. There will also be a live technical demonstration session on fibers and what they can do in a food matrix to improve gut dysbiosis. Learn more here
