The Grain Foods Foundation and the Dairy Council of California are sponsoring a webinar on Thursday, January 20, entitled “Food Intolerances: How to Distinguish between Fad and Reality.” Dr. Julie Miller-Jones, from our own Scientific Advisory Board, will be one of three speakers who will discuss the myths and misperceptions surrounding food intolerances and the defining features of intolerance, allergy and disease. Specifically, Dr. Miller-Jones will focus on gluten intolerance and discuss who really needs a gluten-free diet.
Additional speakers include:
- Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD: An expert in celiac disease, Ms. Tribole will be moderating the webinar and help listeners translate the research presented into clinical practice.
- Jeanette Keith, MD: Dr. Keith is a practicing gastroenterologist and her presentation will cover lactose intolerance and when a lactose-free diet is medically necessary.
The webinar is more timely now than ever as our industry continues to respond to the gluten-free movement and battle the misperceptions surrounding the use of a gluten-free diet for weight loss. It will be held this Thursday from 2-3:15 EST. Registration is free for the first 200 people who sign up.
