Next month NutraIngredients-USA will bring together several experts to reflect on how their respective areas of expertise have adapted to change in recent months and where they anticipate sports nutrition is headed.

The multi-billion-dollar US sports nutrition market is a dynamic and diverse beast, dominated by protein. The sector is awash with innovation, from novel delivery via drinks, shots, bars, gels, and supplements, to new ingredients and alternatives to old classics.

Coronavirus threw the industry a curveball, and this editorial webinar will examine how the pandemic has shifted the category, consumer behavior, how brands are adapting and what trends will stick.

Schall Consulting; Training Coordinator at University of South Carolina Michelle Arent, MPH, CSCS, CISSN, USAW; and Shawn Arent, PhD, CSCS*D, FISSN, FACSM, Professor & Chair, Dept. of Exercise Science, and Director, UofSC Sport Science Lab.
