Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Released

2015-02-20

The “Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee” (Advisory Report) is now open for public review and comment. The Advisory Report is available online at DietaryGuidelines.gov. There is a mechanism to submit comments on the report on that website, as well. SNA’s Nutrition Committee will be reviewing the report, drafting comments, and will plan on sharing them once finalized.

This report, drafted by an advisory committee of independent experts has been formally submitted to the Secretaries of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Agriculture (USDA). The “Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee” describes findings from the Committee’s review of the scientific evidence on diet, nutrition, and health. This report will inform the next edition of the Dietary Guidelines. HHS and USDA will use the Advisory Report along with input from federal agencies and public comments to develop the next edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. HHS and USDA will release the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015 by end of the year.
