"Science-based dietary guidance is critical to ensuring a healthy future for America," said USDA Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps. "USDA greatly appreciates the high-quality work done by this committee
comprised of our nation's leading scientists and dietary experts. We look forward to thoroughly reviewing the report and leveraging their scientific advice as we partner with HHS to develop the next edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans."
