It’s hard to miss the recent influx of conversations in the news and on social media around seed oils, like soybean oil, and their impact on health. Seed oils are a common source of unsaturated fat, a nutrient that is recognized in a heart-healthy eating pattern. Yet, doubt has been casted on the nutrient profile, healthfulness, and production of these oils leaving your clients, and may be even yourself, with questions.
This webinar will review the most common health topics mentioned in seed oil discussions such as heart disease, inflammation, and obesity. We’ll also review current evidence on the impact of unsaturated fatty acids on cardiovascular health and risk factors as well as share tips for addressing seed oil questions with your clients and recommending seed oils as part of an eating pattern that supports heart health.
