Over 90% of North Americans exceed the recommended intake limit for added sugars. This webinar, hosted jointly by ILSI North America and the American Academy of Clinical Endocrinologists, focuses on the role of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) as a tool for reducing intake of added sugars. This webinar will 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. The AACE perspective on LCS as a dietary management tool will be presented. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.

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.

Scientific Sessions:

Managing Large Multidisciplinary/Multi-Institutional Food Safety Projects - Effectively, Impactfully, and with Integrity

Monday, July 22, 2019 | 1:30 – 5:15 PM | Ballroom D

Watch all Session Videos

Food safety is a complex and multidisciplinary challenge. Therefore, federally-funded food safety projects, and even industry-centered projects, increasingly involve large, multidisciplinary/multiinstitutional collaborative teams. However, very few individuals thrust into these roles have formal education or training in managing such projects. This symposium brings together a unique and diverse cohort of presenters, ranging from an expert on assessing the effectiveness and impact of research collaborations and centers (with experience on multiple food safety project teams) to experienced managers of such projects (in government, academic, and industry) to a representative of the Scientific Integrity Consortium. The speakers will describe measures for evaluating the effectiveness of such largescale collaborations, identify common features of successful collaborations, share best practices for forming and managing such teams, and outline essential foundational principles for ensuring the quality and integrity of the resulting research. A panel discussion is included to maximize opportunities for attendee interaction with the multiple perspectives provided by the speakers. After this session, attendees will have a better appreciation on how to play together well in the research sandbox.

Conveners: Bradley Marks, Michigan State University; Kendra Nightingale, Texas Tech University; and Isabel Walls, USDA NIFA

Speakers:
Scholarly Assessment of Large Scholarly Collaboration: Measures of Effectiveness and Impact
Denis Gray, PhD, North Carolina State University Managing Government-Academic-Industry Collaborations
Kimberly Cook, PhD, USDA ARS Lessons Learned from Managing NoroCORE, a Large USDA-CAP Project
Lee-Ann Jaykus, PhD, North Carolina State University Managing Food Safety Projects Across Multiple Boundaries - Internally and Externally

The Mitigation and Regulation of Heat-Formed Substances Produced in Foods During Cooking: What are the Unintended Consequences on Microbial Safety and Public Health?

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 | 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM | M107

Watch all Session Videos

A growing field in food safety is the focus on the potential risk of heat-formed substances produced during cooking. Compounds that are known as human health hazards are being increasingly identified as heat-formed substances present in food. Two prominent examples of this are acrylamide and furfuryl alcohol, both of which are present in significant amounts in a wide array of foods. This session will help inform how the risk assessment process of heat-formed substances can incorporate the benefits of cooking and cooked food. It will highlight the genetic changes that allowed humans to consume cooked food. The session will then explore the unintended consequences in mitigating heat formed substances, such as introducing microbial hazards. It will address how to assess and communicate these risks to food processors and consumers. The potential impact and implications on the food industry and, ultimately, the end consumer, of using current approaches to assess the potential public health impact of compounds formed during routine cooking of food will be debated.

Convener: Steven Hermansky, PharmD, PhD, DABT, ConAgra Brands

Speakers:
Genetic Evidence of Human Adaptation to a Cooked Diet and its Role in Human Health and Food Safety
Steven Hermansky, PharmD, PhD, DABT, ConAgra Brands Balancing Microbial Food Safety Risks with Mitigating Heat-Formed Substances in Foods

Let’s Hear from Next Generation Food Safety Scientists on Pathogen Behavior in Ready to Eat Foods

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM | Ballroom E

Watch all Session Videos

A current research collaboration between Health Canada, the University of Guelph and North Carolina State University is investigating the survival and inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, and foodborne viruses during the storage of low moisture foods. This is a wide-ranging research consortium funded by the ILSI North America Food Microbiology Committee and includes a number of developing research scientists who will also present their findings. The ILSI North America Food Microbiology Committee is committed to proactively improving the understanding and control of microbial food safety hazards to enable scientifically informed decision making. The Committee achieves its mission by funding research that is conducted at institutions who also train the next generation of food safety scientists.

Ready-to-eat low moisture products such as nuts, dried fruits, cereal products, and chocolate are often ingredients used in the manufacturing of many food products. They carry significant potential for the amplification of outbreaks and recalls over a wide variety of products. The research consortium represented by this next generation of food safety experts is studying several aspects of pathogen behavior in low moisture ready-to-eat foods and goes beyond traditional thermal mitigation strategies.

Conveners: Laurie Post, PhD, Deibel Labs; Edith Wilkin, PhD, Leprino Foods

Speakers:
Survival, Inactivation and Detection of Foodborne Viruses During Long Term Storage in Chocolate, Pistachios and Cornflakes
Neda Nasheri, PhD, Health Canada Survival and Virulence of L. monocytogenes During Storage on Low Moisture Foods and Characterization of the Low Moisture Foods Microbiome
Vivian Ly, MSc candidate, University of Guelph Nontraditional Decontamination Methods for Salmonella Reduction in Dried Fruits and Cereals
Kayla Murray, PhD candidate, University of Guelph Identification of Molecular Mechanisms Mediating Long-Term Survival of Salmonella in Pistachios, Dried Apples, and Cornflakes
Victor Oladimeji Jayeola, PhD candidate, North Carolina State University

Roundtable Event:

Is It Time for Food Safety Performance Standards Since Zero Risk Is Not an Option?

Monday, July 22, 2019 | 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM | Ballroom E

Watch all Session Videos

Food safety systems rely on verification activities to determine if the system is working as designed and validated. Microbiological performance standards can be used to verify if a processing system is adequately controlling a specific hazard. Performance standards should be set to protect public health. Sampling protocols and microbiological testing methods must be appropriate for the food being tested. In the US poultry industry, performance standards have been in place to measure the prevalence of Salmonella. Over time, the performance standards have changed to reflect the improved conditions in the industry. Prevalence based performance standards may work for other product categories, especially in dry products of raw agricultural products such as wheat flours and the produce area especially for frozen fruits and vegetables. This roundtable discussion will explore the current and potential future uses of performance standards in foods where it is not reasonable to expect zero presence of pathogens.

Convener: Christina Stam, PhD, Kraft Heinz

Panelists:
Craig Hedberg, PhD, University of Minnesota
Candace Doepker, PhD, ToxStrategies
Angie Siemens, PhD, Cargill

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.
