Session Detail

Session Number and Title: 254.Is there still a place on the table for refined grains after the 2010 Dietary Guidelines advisory committee report? Rice as a case study.
Session Type: SYMPOSIUM
Session Time: Tuesday, Jun 14, 2011, 10:30 AM -12:00 PM
Primary Track: Food, Health & Nutrition
Secondary Track: Food Chemistry
Session Room: Room 291
Session Description: The 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report places refined grains in the same category as added sugars and saturated fat. This categorization leads to questioning the role refined grains should play in U.S. diets. Moreover, the simplified categorization places all refined grains in the same category, ignoring the fact that not all refined grains result in the same physiological responses. This session explains the rationale for this categorization and what implications it holds for consumers and food manufacturers. Issues to be discussed include how the 2010 recommendation for refined grains was developed and the evidence supporting it, why this recommendation was not included in the 2005 recommendations, and why the blanket recommendation does not always equate to a healthy dietary pattern. The speakers use rice as a case study to explore these issues.
Collaborating Division 1: Nutrition
Track Sponsor: BASF (formerly Cognis)
Learning Objective 1: Participants will gain an understanding of the scientific evidence supporting the 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommendation on refined grains and the importance of whole-grain consumption.
Learning Objective 2: Participants will learn that not all refined grains are similar in their characteristics and how overall dietary patterns influence whether inclusion of refined grains would contribute to a negative or positive physiologic response.
