(Washington, D.C.--March 3, 1999) The new Food Insight Media Guide on Food Safety and Nutrition--an invaluable tool for reporters and professionals dealing with food and health-related communications--is available from the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation. The Media Guide is free to credentialed media. Non-media can order the Media Guide for $95.95.

This resource, a binder filled with 16 chapters and over 250 pages, covers a wealth of nutrition and food safety information on such topics as food biotechnology, functional foods, caffeine, sugars, food allergy, and oral health, just to name a few. And, the Media Guide identifies some 200 independent scientific experts who are able to provide commentary in their field of expertise.
