NutriMi Nutrition Conference in Italy
APG exhibited and sponsored a presentation at NutriMi, "Apractical" nutrition forum, in Milan, Italy, held April 12 -13. APG nutrition expert, Dr. Giorgio Donegani presented the recent research findings of two studies that earned pistachios a SUPERFOOD status: The workplace study that showed how pistachios help boost brain power and concentration levels at work; and the weight study, conducted at the Paul Bocuse Institute in France, which showed that a daily snack of pistachios adds nutrients, not weight. Sports nutritionist, Erminia Ebner, also spoke about the benefits of pistachios as a post-recovery snack for athletes and active adults. Her presentation covered the top recovery snacks, for athletes and active adults, as well as the risks and benefits of do-it-yourself diets and workouts.
Over 600 health professionals attended the conference, and more than 180 nutrition professionals signed up to receive our nutrition e-newsletter, American Pistachios Unshelled.
