For this edition of Website Wednesday, check out one of my favorite go-to resources, Food Insight. The only thing I don't like about this website is that I often spend much longer than I intended
perusing their information!
From the International Food Information Council, Food Insight addresses some of the most controversial and talked about nutrition topics of the day. Also, you can get a free subscription to their e-newsletter, “Facts”, by registering here.
Food Insight tackles misinformation about controversial topics, such as artificial sweeteners, GMO’s, and organic foods. It also provides helpful information on other topics, like food label reading, caffeine, mindful eating, and spices, just to name a few.
My favorite parts of the website include the entertaining and informing short videos. One of my favorites is What’s the Deal with Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)? And the Science of MSG.
I also enjoy their infographics, which break down complicated topics into something very digestible (pun intended). Eating for Increased Energy and Foods for Maintaining a Healthy Weight are just a couple of their many options.
Are you curious about the Ketogenic or The Blue Zone diet? The Food Insight staff also does “Try It Tuesday,” where one of their employees (usually a registered dietitian) will try a popular diet and report about the experience.
Check out Food Insight today! Just be sure to give yourself enough time.
