Cargill Announces Culinary Presentation at the 2009 American Dietetic Association Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo

Cargill is teaching health care professionals about the benefits of health-promoting ingredients and functional foods with a deliciously unique culinary demonstration at this year’s American Dietetic Association (ADA) Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE). Cargill’s culinary presentation, Cardio-Culinary Functional Cooking with Functional Culinary Educator Chef Gerard Viverito, CEC, CHE, will take place Tuesday, Oct. 20th at 10 a.m.

A former executive chef who appears regularly on TV and radio, Chef Viverito is well known for his ability to increase the nutritional value of his dishes without compromising taste. During his presentation at FNCE, Chef Viverito will share his recipes, tips and techniques to help lower cholesterol without affecting flavor or texture, including the use of foods and beverages containing CoroWise™ plant sterols which has been clinically shown to help lower cholesterol and is eligible for an FDA health claim*.

"We are very excited about this culinary demo so dietitians can learn more about creating heart-healthy recipes by using functional foods and beverages readily available in grocery stores," said Pam Stauffer, global marketing programs and communications manager, Cargill Health & Nutrition. "Thanks to Cargill’s expertise in food technology and our partnerships with food & beverage manufacturers, heart-healthy eating has moved beyond the realm of ‘dietary restrictions’. With so many products now containing CoroWise™ plant sterols, people can enjoy mainstream foods while doing something good for their hearts."

Visitors to this year’s FNCE can learn more about CoroWise™ plant sterols at booth #1013. In addition more information can be found at and find us on Facebook by searching ‘CoroWise’.
