This webinar, hosted jointly by ILSI North America and Diabetes Canada, will provide guidance for practitioners on reducing added sugars intake, including low-calorie sweetener safety and appropriate use.
The ILSI North America Gut Microbiome Committee is working towards developing a set of Human Whole Stool Reference Materials in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The goal is to quantify gut microbial metabolites in the material that have been linked to diet and health.
Several ILSI entities will be supporting three scientific sessions at the Asian Congress of Nutrition 2019:
ILSI North America is supporting three sessions, a roundtable event and three posters at the 2019 International Association for Food Protection Annual Meeting.
The ILSI North America Mid-Year Meeting combines presentations on topics of current interest with reports on progress within the organization’s new and on-going programs.

This webinar is approved for 1 CEU by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
Over 90% of North Americans exceed the recommended intake limit for added sugars. This webinar, hosted jointly by ILSI North America and Diabetes Canada, focuses on the role of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) as a tool for reducing intake of added sugars. Diabetes Canada has developed a position statement that emphasizes the urgent need for strategies to reduce the intake of added sugars by Canadians, especially those with or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and recognizes that LCS are one viable tool available for added sugars intake reduction.
This webinar will also review what is meant by an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for food additives which include LCS, and why it confers protection. Results of a scoping review of the nutrition literature and the application of the ADI for LCS in that body of work will be presented. Speakers will address how the ADI can be used in nutrition research related to LCS, how to move toward a systematic approach for evaluating LCS intakes in nutrition studies, and the translation of this information for practice. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
