Last month, FEED Nutrition Consulting attended the annual Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE) with more than 10,000 other food and nutrition experts. The annual meeting is a chance for registered dietitians to meet with colleagues, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, and health care providers to discuss health issues affecting Americans. This year’s conference also featured more than 390 exhibitors, sharing the latest food information and innovations. Read on for our product spotlight of our favorite finds from the event.
PLANT BASED PIZZA
Cali’power cauliflower pizza crust – These naturally gluten-free pizza crusts are made with only four ingredients. Perfect for a pizza night at home that the whole family can enjoy.
RXBAR Kids – This #FEEDFave is now available in smaller, kid-friendly sizes and flavors. Don’t be fooled, it’s not just for kids. Try the smaller size option for a lighter version of a snack we already love.
Biena roasted chickpeas – Packed with protein and fiber, this is the type of gluten-free, plant-based snack we can get behind.
FODY Foods trail mix and nut-based snack bars – For our clients following a low-FODMAP diet, FODY has made snacking easy. Each package has been carefully prepared to be Monash Certified low FODMAP.
LOW MERCURY TUNA
Safe Catch seasoned elite tuna – Safe Catch tests every fish to a mercury limit that is 10 times stricter than the FDA requires. Thus, this is a perfect choice for children and moms-to-be. Their fish are sustainably caught and retain a higher amount of omega-3s than other brands. The seasoned varieties are great on their own or can be used to spice up our Greek yogurt tuna salad recipe.
ZUPA NOMA superfood soups – Each flavor of their superfood soup contains four or more servings of whole, organic vegetables. We love that the WHOLE vegetable is blended so you’re getting the most vitamins and fiber possible (and they don’t waste any produce or pulp!).
