Lipid Nutrition to Participate in Special Panel at This Year's Nutracon

Today Lipid Nutrition announced its agreement to participate in a special panel at this year’s Nutracon titled: Weight Loss Ingredients “Slim Slam”: Make Your Case. The session is designed to showcase products and ingredients that are researched and that have demonstrated safety and efficacy in weight loss/weight management.

Recently, there has been criticism in the United States national media about unsafe or ineffective weight loss ingredients. The organizers at Nutracon see a need for the industry to present that there are weight loss/weight management products and ingredients that are well researched and provide the weight loss/weight management benefits consumers are looking for.

John Kurstjens, Global Group Manager Marketing at Lipid Nutrition states: “Lipid Nutrition is honoured to be invited to participate in this special panel. We feel Lipid Nutrition can best represent the over 20 years of published clinical data on CLA and weight management and to explain why CLA as a dietary supplement and functional food ingredient is a well-researched, safe, effective and beneficial ingredient for the consumer. We acknowledge the importance and seriousness of providing functional ingredients that are backed by published clinical data. We believe this helps to ensure accurate information and communication which ultimately builds consumer knowledge and confidence.”

Nutracon is the premier event for ingredient and technology innovation in the health and nutrition industry. The conference goal is to help companies develop new science-supported products in the supplements, functional foods and beverages, and nutricosmetics sectors.

Nutracon’s Weight Loss Ingredients “Slim Slam”: Make Your Case panel will assemble on Wednesday March 4th, 2009 in the Capistrano Room at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel at 3:30pm. Lipid Nutrition’s presentation on CLA and its clinical science around weight management benefits will begin at 4pm and includes a question and answer period with the audience.
