California Raisins to highlight expo

California Raisins’ nutrition research director and science advisor James Painter will deliver a presentation about the nutritional benefits of all-natural, sun-dried California raisins. Raisins will be contrasted against highly processed, sugar-added dried fruit imitators.

Painter will explore the untold story and consequences of excessive added sugar consumption in today’s American diet. He will be speaking at the expo’s VIP reception on March 7 and at a free California Raisin-sponsored kick-off breakfast starting at 7 a.m. the following morning.

People really need to understand the difference between artificially and naturally sugary foods. It’s imbalance which is at the root of so many health issues, and watching out that one focuses on natural sugar, fructose, which can be more sustainably absorbed by the body, is an important part of maintaining a sugar balance.
