The Farm to Fork Journey: Bringing Taste and Nutrition to Your Table
Christopher Noble
Cynthia Haskins

Christopher Noble & Cynthia Haskins

Understanding the journey that dairy, fruit, and vegetables take from the farm to the table is just as important as the taste and nutrition of the food itself. Cynthia Haskins, President and CEO of New York Apple Association, and Chris Noble, MBA and co-owner of Noblehurst Farms, will share insights in traditional and modern production practices, climate and soil benefits to our food source, and how agriculture impacts our multi-generational farmers, communities, and our state. New York agriculture plays a prominent role in our country as we are fourth in dairy production, fifth in fruit and vegetable production, and the second largest producer of apples. No wonder we’re called “The Big Apple”.

Attendees will also be informed on such issues as licensure and Telehealth and where RDNs can legally practice medical nutrition therapy.

GI Microbiome Modulation using Key Dietary Nutrients Gertrude B. Pfost, MS

The presentation is intended to present advanced and up-to-date information about the functional roles of the GI microbiome and its impact on human health, obesity and type 2 diabetes management.  It explores the possibility of improving health by the intake of specific nutrients intended to modulate the microbiome for improved function and production of SCFA.

Health and weight management recommendations can involve life style changes that are often difficult to achieve.  Dietary choices have direct and indirect influences on health via the role of the microbiome. The story of the relevance of the health of the gut microbiome to our relationship with food can be a new motivation.  Scientific evidence is mounting that connects the means of achieving a healthy microbiome to important health measures of the individual.  The presentation shares with professionals a novel science-based approach to help with weight management, blood sugar levels, immune support, occasional diarrhea, and occasional GI disturbances when taking metformin.  

In this presentation, GI microbiome anatomy and function are reviewed in order to set the stage in the large intestine, before launching into specific interactions of the microbiota with dietary nutrients.  Next is a discussion of the types of nutrients needed. To conclude, clinical data testing a combination of specific prebiotic nutrients is presented.
