Midyear musings and hot topic issues going forward

  • Aggregate Nutrient Density Index may catch on as a new way to measure and monitor what we’re eating.
  • “Would you like a receipt with that?” will soon be replaced with no receipt unless the customer asks for it.
  • Gluten-free will continue to grow up, but so will alternative grains such as sorghum, as Americans learn there are options beyond wheat, corn, rice and oats.
  • Probiotics continue to grow with consumer awareness and positive research data.
  • Is telomerase really the fountain of youth? More research on the horizon may show this enzyme can reverse certain aging markers in humans as well as mice.
