10 Awesome Food Products by Culinary Nutrition Experts

There are a variety of career opportunities available to graduates of the culinary nutrition expert program and as you might imagine, many of our alumni choose to build businesses that focus on developing recipes and sharing the goodies with others. Creating a food product line to sell in stores, at farmers’ markets or online isn’t easy! Aside from multiple rounds of recipe testing to create a winning combination that is flavourful and health-supportive, products created by culinary nutrition experts must meet quality control and food safety guidelines based on the laws in their area. Thankfully, many of our alumni have persevered in order to craft incredible gluten-free, dairy-free and nutritious foods that are wonderful for our health!

Here are some of the amazing food products created by our culinary nutrition expert graduates.
