Probiotics: Translating scientific knowledge into practice

The use of probiotics continues to be a hot topic for researchers and consumers alike. Our speakers address probiotics from complementary positions - a review of current, key scientific probiotics research and the use of probiotic containing food products by consumers to meet nutrition and health goals. They will describe what probiotics are, common probiotic containing foods and supplements and what to look for on probiotic product labels. Also discussed are nutrition practice areas in which probiotics can play an effective role.
