The 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee is reviewing the evidence for a series of questions on nutrition and health. The Committee is using three protocol-driven approaches to examine the evidence: data analysis, food pattern modeling and systematic reviews. For each question, a protocol is created to describe how the Committee plans to answer the question using one of these approaches. The first set of protocols are now posted online. The Committee will discuss the protocols during its meetings, and updates to the protocols will be posted over the course of the Committee's work. Comments can be submitted here by July 24. The next committee meeting will take place July 10 and 11 in Washington, DC, where the public will be able to provide oral comments. Meat Institute staff will attend and provide oral comments.
