Description: Do you get questions from patients or clients about processed foods and beverages? This topic is often met with uncertainty, curiosity, and skepticism. Join PepsiCo Health and Nutrition Sciences for an engaging discussion featuring food and nutrition experts as they tackle this topic, share science-based information and answer YOUR questions.
During this program, we will “lift the veil” and explore why certain types of processes are used and equip you with the tools to communicate to your patients and clients about how food is made.
