IFTSA Student PD Teams Are Ready for Wellness 14, Are You?

By Ben Raymond

IFT Wellness 14 is just around the corner, and student teams have been working on their Heart Healthy PD Competition entries for months. The contest, sponsored by CanolaInfo, is focused on developing new snack products that are free of trans fats and low in saturated fat that meet FDA labeling guidelines for heart healthy foods.  Finalists have been chosen and will travel to Chicago to present their new healthy snacks. This years talented finalists are:

California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo with Demergo

Rutgers University with Heartmony

University of Massachusetts- Amherst with Smartarts

Join us at our new downtown Chicago location to gain practical insights from industry leaders at Kraft, Cargill, Nestlé, DuPont, and many others on how they’re successfully developing sweet and savory snacks that are healthy, low in sugar and sodium, and high in protein. Registration is open!
