I’m Anne. A mum of two and a nutrition nerd!
I got my first taste of nutrition science whilst studying for my Biomedical Sciences degree and since graduating I’ve worked as a food technologist or nutritionist for over 20 years across food manufacturing & retailing in addition to being an organic processing inspector and a food tutor. I am a freelance Registered Nutritionist specialising in nutritional analysis of recipes and menus as well as legally compliant food & nutrition labelling. Based in Lancashire, my consultancy services are mainly conducted remotely or online keeping overheads low and my rates competitive.
When I’m not working, you will usually find me open water swimming, running, playing Bagpipes with my band, or with my husband cheering on our football crazy children!
What is a Registered Nutritionist?
Nutrition covers many fields and there are many people who claim to be professionals but do not have the recognised qualifications to meet your needs. Look out for registered nutritionists with the letters RNutr after their name for science-based healthy eating advice. The Association for Nutrition (AfN) protects the public and promotes high standards in evidence-based science and professional practice of nutrition. Entry onto the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) is an assurance that we meet the rigorous standards of competence and professionalism. You can trust a Registered Nutritionist!
As a UKVRN registrant I adhere to the Association for Nutrition Standards of Ethics, Conduct and Performance including maintaining client confidentiality and as a member of the Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) I am bound by a code of professional conduct to respect any confidence gained in my professional capacity.
Nutrition information and labelling advice is provided in accordance with UK and European regulations as well as industry best practice and guidance. ‘Approval’ is not an authoritative statement of the law, but an opinion that it complies with all statutory requirements. Whilst AB Food Nutrition takes great care in providing accurate nutrition information and labelling advice, only the courts can interpret the law in a legally binding way.
