Linda McDonald, RD is the dietitian running the show for this invaluable tool for supermarket dietitians. Even if you're not a dietitian, the Supermarket Savvy resources can help shoppers find great, healthy products. I subscribe to the monthly newsletter which focuses on 1-2 topics (for example: "salad dressings"), offers reviews for products with an RD-star rating system.
(1) It is written by a supermarket-savvy who is also a dietitian (what a concept!).
(2) Everyone loves free stuff -- this newsletter regularly has "special offers" designed for dietitians to get a free sample of the product. Any product would be silly not to offer this -- I cannot tell you how many times someone has recommended a product to me...but until I actually get to taste it myself....I'm usually a bit apprehensive. Take advantage of the offers! Fortunately, as a supermarket dietitian myself, I usually get samples anyway (but this is not a guarantee!).
Food & Culinary Professionals - A Dietetic Practice Group of the American Dietetic Association
If you're a dietitian, you have more than 20 dietetic practice groups to choose from with your annual membership dues. If you are serious about food industry issues, culinary and supermarket-related information, this is definitely a group for you. The biggest value for me is their "Supermarket RD Listserv" that is open only to members.
