Over the last few years, consumers have been increasingly focusing on buying unprocessed, pure foods. And, every year, a large number of products hit the shelves. The food industry uses claims which can help us to choose, or leave us confused. Here are some common marketing terms, and what they really mean.
Each year in Canada, 25 000 people are diagnosed with dementia… and the numbers keep rising! Of these 25 000 new cases, several will develop into Alzheimer’s disease. Unfortunately, the medical world doesn’t 100% understand the way this illness develops, nor the way to cure it, or even slow its’ progression.
Researchers at the University Laval, including Frederic Calon, one of the world’s leading experts in the field of neurological illnesses, have reviewed the literature on the use of Omega 3 to reduce cognitive decline associated with age related dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Each year for the last five years, at the end of January, big (and small!) players in the food industry get together to celebrate the new initiatives taken that year. This year, it’s with great pride that we have won the DUX Contest for our initiative the “FODMAP Diet”!
