Talk Title: “Product Development Lifecycle: From Discovery to Commercialization”

Talk Abstract:
Understanding the regulatory environment is critical to the successful development, manufacturing, labeling, marketing, and delivery of nutrition-related products to the consumer. Knowing how to manage risk while navigating the regulatory path to market is essential. Knowing the right questions to ask and the ability to interpret the data and information into consumer-relevant information is critical. Specially, we will cover the process for developing new nutrition products; the regulations applicable to foods, medical foods, dietary supplements and ingredients; and how to represent scientific evidence accurately and appropriately when substantiating label claims and advertisements.
