Food preservation course approved for dietitian continuing education

Registered dietitians have a new source for continuing education on safe food preservation. Preserve the Taste of Summer, a research-based program from ISU Extension and Outreach, has been approved for up to 20 continuing education units from the Commission of Dietetic Registration, the credentialing agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

As Iowans continue to be interested in local foods, gardening and preserving food themselves, registered dietitians need to be aware of safe food preservation practices so they can properly advise their clients.
