Faculty & Staff Wellness Program: Decoding Nutrition Label Lingo

When walking through the grocery store, we are often faced with all types of health claims printed on food labels. With so many different buzzwords it can get confusing - what does it all mean? In this class Madia will help you decode some label lingo to ensure you are getting exactly what you want. We will also touch up on macro requirements, added sugars, serving size and calories. Madia will also give you her best tips for navigating the grocery store when shopping.

This workshop will be presented by Madia Jamgochian. Madia graduated from Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition in 2013 after completing her BA in Environmental Studies and Exercise Sports Science at UCSB. Shortly after, she started her personal consulting business My Healing Habits. She enjoys educating on how to heal inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and believes in the food-as-medicine approach.
