Bioactives, polyphenols, phytochemicals, flavonoids…with so many ways to describe naturally occurring plant compounds, the topic can get complicated. In this presentation, we’ll dive into the latest research on the science of bioactives, with a focus on citrus, as well as share the results of a consumer survey aimed at identifying consumer-friendly messaging to enhance your ability to communicate and share the health benefits of these compounds with your patients and clients.

You can sign up for the breakfast when you register for the Food & Nutrition Conference & ExpoTM — or for those already registered for the conference, add an event to your existing registration by going into your FNCE® registration dashboard and selecting the event.
