“The Guiding Stars Scientific Advisory Panel is an esteemed group of experts in the fields of nutrition and health and their work is helping to create healthier lifestyles and eating habits for consumers,” noted Kantor. The panel’s recommendations are drawn from labeling standards and nutrient levels that have been determined as most beneficial to a healthy lifestyle by top national and international health organizations, and are consistent with recommendations from the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, according to Scarborough, Maine-based GSLC.

In other Guiding Stars news, the program will employ FoodPro foodservice management solution technology from Cherry Hill, N.J.-based Aurora Information Systems to offer the nutrition-rating system at college and university dining halls and campus convenience stores across the United States. Numerous colleges and universities — including the University of New Hampshire, which already provides Guiding Stars — use FoodPro, an integrated software application with modules for all major tasks in the foodservice business, among them forecasting and pre-costing, menu planning, food purchasing, production and inventory control, catering, nutritive analysis, point-of-sale interface, post-cost reporting, and financial analysis.
