Food and Nutrition Experts Working for You
Nutrition.gov was revitalized by the staff at the Food and Nutrition Information Center (FNIC) and the NAL in cooperation with a panel of food and nutrition expert advisors from agencies within USDA and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). FNIC is an award-winning leader in online global nutrition information and was selected on this basis to revamp Nutrition.gov. The Nutrition.gov site was launched in November, 2004 and a major renovation was completed in February 2008.
FNIC's staff of trained nutrition professionals, most of whom are Registered Dietitians (R.D.), provide information on food and human nutrition.
