The expert panel that is preparing the next Dietary Guidelines for Americans holds its second meeting this week and will hear from a wide range of organizations, companies and individuals during a public comment session.
Dr. Mickey Rubin of the Egg Nutrition Center will provide science-based testimony on behalf of the egg industry. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has identified cognitive health as a major topic in the 2020 DGA, and eggs are an excellent source of choline, a nutrient that has important neurocognitive benefits throughout the lifespan. Most Americans fail to consume enough choline, and eggs are among the most concentrated sources in the food supply.
