Description:

Polyphenols are important bioactive plant nutrients contributed by a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A growing body of evidence supports the numerous health benefits associated with polyphenol-rich foods like cranberries; however, because cranberries are naturally low in sugar and require sweetening to enjoy their great taste, cranberry products are often excluded from dietary intake recommendations or misaligned with nutrient-poor foods and beverages. During this satellite session, leading cranberry health experts will provide the latest clinical and epidemiological evidence that demonstrate the health benefits associated with cranberry consumption and the potential impact on global recommended dietary guidance.

After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the nutrient properties of polyphenol-rich fruits like cranberries and how they relate to positive health outcomes
  • Describe the clinical advances and epidemiological findings related to cranberries and health
  • Engage in a dialogue on the role of polyphenol-rich foods like cranberries as a nutrient-dense part of a healthy balanced lifestyle
