Food Service Professionals Workshop and Product Showcase

Session I – Presented by Sue Stillman Linja, RDN, LD, Owner, S&S Nutrition Network, Inc.

Many centenarians have been able to ward off the diseases of their parents or have survived a life-threatening illness such as cancer, heart disease or stroke. Using questions from focus groups of baby boomers, centenarians from all over the world were interviewed on what they ate and their favorite recipes. This session will review research gathered during visits to Sardinia, Italy, Japan and Singapore. Sue will share information about the top 20 foods of centenarians, how they consume these foods as part of their overall diet and will provide a tasting of newly developed recipes including ingredients from targeted longevity foods.

Session II – Presented by Gary Triolo, Director of Food and Nutrition Services CentraState Health, Freehold, New Jersey
