Wednesday, March 31, 2021  Join us for our upcoming FCP Webinar!

March 31, 2021 @ 9am PT/ 12 pm ET

Speaker: Sharon Palmer, MSFS, RDN

According to a recent survey, more than one-third of Americans say they are trying to eat more plants or already follow a plant-based diet.  Given their health benefits, versatility and delicious flavor, canned beans bring great taste and convenience to plant-based diets, making it easier than ever for consumers to add more plant protein to their diets.  With this increased consumption and interest in plant-based diets, more and more consumers have questions about quality and the best ways to incorporate them into their diets.  This webinar will examine the benefits and evidence-based research regarding the protein quality, digestibility and scoring of canned beans as part of a healthy diet.  Sharon Palmer, MSFS, RDN, The Plant-Powered Dietitian, will share the importance of beans and their place in the diet throughout history, years of evidence-based research on plant protein quality and digestibility and how they fit into the recommendations in the 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Finally, she will share delicious strategies on how to add more canned beans to meals and snacks every day.
