Three Peanut Organizations Unite to Immerse Dietitians into the World of Peanuts

The National Peanut Board, The Peanut Institute and the American Peanut Council partnered together to create unique peanut experiences in an expanded booth space at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE) in Washington, D.C., Oct. 21-23.

More than 10,000 dietitians and health care providers learned about research on the prevention of peanut allergies by introducing peanut foods to infants, the latest research about peanut nutrition and why a peanut-based paste, Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic-Foods (RUTF), is a leading treatment for severe malnutrition.
