AntioxiNUT Advisory Board Touts Pecans at Dietitian Conference
The Georgia Pecan Commission unveiled the AntioxiNUT campaign at the American Dietetic Association’s Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo this past September in San Diego to a targeted audience of more than 6,000 dietitians and nutritionists and 8,500 health professionals. This was by far the largest attendance for this conference since the Commission began exhibiting in 2007.
On behalf of the Commission, AntioxiNUT Advisory Board members Carolyn O’Neil, M.S., R.D., and Densie Webb, Ph.D., R.D. mingled with attendees and educated dietitians about the health benefits of pecans, including the high antioxidant level. Attendees were excited to interact with members of the AntioxiNUT Advisory Board and to sample convenient, one-ounce packages of Georgia Pecans. Photo opportunities with the AntioxiNUT “bodyguards” created lots of buzz.
