Rethinking fat: Global experts to separate fact from fiction

Related tags: Nutrition

Researchers have questioned the received wisdom on dietary fat in recent years asking, is saturated fat actually good for us? Are unsaturated fats really as healthy as we thought? And is it even possible to study fat without the context of other macronutrients?

On December 15, FoodNavigator will bring together global experts to weigh the evidence in a live online forum.

Join us as we explore some of the stickiest questions about fat, including:

  • Has fat in general been demonised wrongly?
  • Is the tide of scientific evidence for saturated fat really turning?
  • Has the 'low fat diet' culture backfired when it comes to obesity and disease?
  • Does the increasing evidence for 'good fats' mean we could see a reversal of attitudes towards fat?
  • Can all fats play a role in a healthy diet, or do manufacturers still need to adjust the levels of certain types of fat in foods?
  • Where do we stand with international health guidelines on fats?
  • What are the best solutions for reducing levels of trans fats and other ‘bad fats’?
