“I am pleased to be part of the panel and I have already met with my SEP colleagues to discuss research projects.
I am a strong proponent of including 100% juice as a complement to a healthy diet, due to the nutritional benefits it brings. Of course, this all depends on scientific evidence. I look forward to getting involved in the Panel.”
