Dietitians – along with many other nutritional professionals – often receive questions about consuming fermented foods for digestive health. But how strong is the evidence that fermented foods can improve digestive health?
ISAPP is pleased to work with Today’s Dietitian to offer a free webinar in which Hannah Holscher, PhD, RD, and Jennifer Burton, MS, RD, LDN will discuss the foundational elements of fermented foods, the role of microbes in fermentation, how they differ from probiotics and prebiotics, and how to incorporate fermented foods into client diets in an evidence-based manner. Participants will come away with a grasp of the scientific evidence that supports fermented food consumption. This activity is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) for 1.0 CPEUs for dietitians.
The one-hour virtual event, titled “Fermented Foods and Health — Does Today’s Science Support Yesterday’s Tradition?”, was held April 20th, 2022, at 2:00 pm Eastern Time.

ISAPP and Today’s Dietitian also collaborated on a self-study activity titled “Evidence-based use of probiotics, prebiotics and fermented foods for digestive health”. This free activity, which provides more detail on the topic that the 1-hour webinar above, was approved by CDR to offer 2.0 CPEUs for dietitians and is available here through November 2023.
