Improving nutrition through bold actions in health and food systems fostering commitments for N4G – World Health Organization

Posted: at 1:56 am

Event details

More information: Here

In June, 2021, WHO organized a successful first series of Health Talks prior to the UN Food Systems Pre-Summit calling for partners to ensure health is at the centre of the Food Systems Summit processes. Now, in preparation for the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit, the Department of Nutrition and Food Safety of WHO and the UNICEF Nutrition Section of the Program Group will host a week-long series of virtual events focused on improving nutrition through a multi-system approach. The weeks events will highlight key priorities and actions that countries are taking, or are planning to take, to deliver essential nutrition actions in health systems and promote safe and healthy diets to ensure health and well-being for all, leaving no one behind. The week aims to drive ambitious and impactful country commitments at N4G by:

The N4G thematic working group on nutrition and universal health coverage has developed a commitment guide for SMART commitments. The N4G health week will underpin many of the key themes in the commitment guide, and illustrate through country presentations, how countries are scaling up nutrition interventions in health service delivery. Actions on workforce strengthening, financing, nutrition products, health information systems, and leadership will be described. In addition, WHO has developed information briefs on six action areas that will provide further background for sessions highlighting the pathways of food systems impact on health and nutrition. This package of actions aims to improve nutrition through transforming food systems to deliver safe, sustainable and healthy diets. Additional resources to support smart commitments on breastfeeding, data and finance have also been developed and will serve as key resources for this week.

Pandemic has heightened focus on health, nutrition: Sandeep Verma – Mint

Posted: at 1:56 am

As the covid-19 pandemic evolves, consumer health companies are seeing an uptick in demand for preventive and immunity-boosting products, said Sandeep Verma, country head, India, Bayer Consumer Health division. He also talked about the companys plans in consumer health, the industrys trajectory during the pandemic, and the way forward. Edited excerpts from an interview:

How has the consumer health industry performed during the pandemic?

Overall, the industry growth during the pandemic has largely come about from the nutrition category, especially the immunity segment, with the increase in demand for immunity-boosting products. In general, the pandemic has heightened the focus on health and nutrition, particularly in line with ensuring adequate immunity and energy levels to tackle present-day health challenges. It has changed the way in which consumers seek care, with individuals now increasingly opting for self-care solutions so they can take charge of their health. One challenge that the industry needs to work on more, is to also provide consumers with better quality of information which can lead to more responsible self-care.

As we are trying to leverage this higher health awareness and the greater need to find self-care solutions, we are also trying to provide consumers with the best quality information which can lead to better choices. Both our re-launches are steps in that direction of combining the right products with the right information. We will also continue to work on bringing innovations in digital technology that can transform self-care by empowering people to maintain and improve their health. Widespread adoption of technology gives people the information, support and convenience they need to manage their health more proactively. Digitalization can thus be leveraged to provide individuals high-quality health information.

What are Bayers expansion plans for the consumer health division in the country?

The Bayer Consumer Health division was launched in the midst of the pandemic in India with a vision to empower the transformation of everyday health so that 1.4 billion Indians can pursue their dreams. Bayer Consumer Health aims to reach 100 million households over the next five years in India. Our brands are already reaching roughly 40 million consumers, so the plan is to more than double this reach and expand access for both the urban as well as rural consumers.

India is one of Bayer Consumer Healths top four priority markets in the world. With our newly launched Consumer Health Division here, we plan to grow our business by enhancing access to the best self-care products in the world for all Indians. Today, India stands eighth in the OTC market rankings and is the fastest-growing market globally. We believe that by 2029, India will become one of the top three markets in the world. Our vision for the country is to empower the transformation of everyday health by supporting 1.4 billion Indians to pursue their dreams and continue making India incredible.

The launch of the Consumer Health Division in India in May 2021 has received an immensely positive response from the consumers. In India, the division currently offers 10 brands, with segments focused on pain management, nutrition, dermatology, and allergy. We will be driving these four categories as our major focus areas in the coming years. We aim to drive our expansion via a digital-led approach and increased accessibility by making the product available at multiple touchpoints. Our goal is to leverage our portfolio in both the urban and rural markets with a focus on enhancing accessibility, crafting new products, and also raising awareness on self-care. Over the next five years, Bayer aspires to expand access to everyday health and reach 100 million households in India with our self-care products.

How is Bayer aiding the fight against covid-19?

The pandemic has drastically reset our priorities. Consumers in India are becoming increasingly health-conscious and proactive about their health, both in terms of prompt treatment of existing conditions and preventive treatment to boost immunity and wellness. However, to enable effective self-care, there is a need to provide reliable health information as well as innovative OTC products catering to daily health needs.

Two big needs have emerged during the pandemic amongst the consumers in India. Firstly, the level of stress has increased a lot and so have the stress-induced headaches. Secondly, the need to build our immunity and energy levels and proactively protect ourselves is a lot higher now. In order to meet these evolved healthcare needs, we have recently relaunched our core brands Saridon and Supradyn.

Saridon, the headache relief solution, relaunched with Sar Dard Chupao Nahi, Mitao positioning itself as the first line of defence for relieving headaches. The genesis of the campaign lies in its category first insight that, young adults today face frequent stress-induced headaches caused by the increase in responsibilities and associated factors like WFH-led screen time increase, financial stress, etc. However, they choose to silently suffer from the pain instead of acting on it.

Supradyn was relaunched with an improved formulation containing 5X Zinc and 12 essential vitamins for greater energy and immunity...an average Indian diet meets only up to 70% of ones daily nutrition requirement, according to nine out of 10 doctors and nutritionists from urban India as per a recent survey conducted by us.

Health and nutrition author writes new novel called Wolf Point – fox2now.com

Posted: at 1:56 am

ST. LOUIS - A nationwide supply chain shortage has left boats full of goods off of the nation's coast. The nationwide issue is impacting local businesses across the metro area.

Jon Parker, the owner of Parker's Table at Oakland and Yale said the supply chain issue is impacting three items at his small business: imported French cheese, imported wine, and paper bags.

"This is a little worse this time, but it's always something," Parker said.

"What we've had issues with is French cheeses are some of the containers coming over have been stalled in ports and because they are perishable products, they'll time out."

Parker said the imported French cheese they ordered recently, just never came. He also said he ordered paper bags from their supplier in Illinois earlier than they ever have before, but they still haven't arrived, and might not until January.

Advancing Nutrition Innovation in an Era of Misinformation – Tufts Now

Posted: at 1:56 am

Leaders from across the food system convened to tackle a tough question this week at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policys fourth annual Nutrition Innovation Summit.

The question posed during the Oct. 6 online event: How do we create the change we need in our food system, in an increasingly fast-moving economy, with pandemics and climate change looming large?

This is, I think, the greatest overall single issue facing humanity todayhow were going to fix the food system, whether in terms of nutrition, access, sustainability, or equity, said Friedman School Dean Dariush Mozaffarian, who delivered opening and closing remarks.

The event included panels on: misinformation and nutrition science; building a platform for innovation; innovating with a focus on the consumer; and food systems innovation.

Friedman School panelists included Corby Kummer, Sean Cash, Parke Wilde, and Erin Coughlan de Perez. Other participants represented a wide range of organizations, including the Angiogenesis Foundation, nutrition communication consultant Eat Well Global, and About Fresh, a company whose fleet of retrofitted school buses and healthcare platform connect people in need with fresh food.

No matter what our role in the food system, we can all contribute to making it better, according to many of the panelistsand that work doesnt have to be big or dramatic.

Even small incremental steps toward getting it right can have huge effects for health and the health of the planet, Mozaffarian said.

Below are key takeaways from two of the summits panels. A recording of the entire summit is available on theFood & Nutrition Innovation Summit 2021 website.

Misinformation. Disinformation. Too much info. Too little. A panel moderated by Corby Kummer, senior lecturer at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, food journalist, and commentator forThe Atlantic, National Public Radio, and the Aspen Institute, cast a sharp eye on the fast-changing landscape of nutrition science and the challenges and opportunities to clear up confusion. Joining Kummer were: Tambra Raye Stevenson, MG04, and founder and CEO of WANDA (Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture), which focuses on reaching, teaching, and advocating for women and girls of African descent in the nutrition dietetics and agricultural spaces; Jennifer Pomeranz, interim chair, Department of Public Health Policy, New York University; and Sean Cash, Bergstrom Foundation Professor in Global Nutrition at the Friedman School.

Here are three takeaways that emerged from the conversation duringthe Nutrition and Misinformation panel(video):

The Internet in everything creates obvious and subtle impacts.Our platformed society has Internet in everything, said Stevenson. Not only is there a multiplicity of digital communications channels and social media but these privatized systems lack transparency, rely on hidden algorithmic systems that may have embedded biases, and are largely unaccountable under current public policy. Media fragmentation and decentralization impact discourse and potentially amplify and distort information. We must recognize and address this problem on multiple fronts.

We need to bring analog regulations into the digital age.Regulation has failed to keep up with changing technology and consumer behavior, ignoring huge swathes of communications media, said the panelists. One example, from Sean Cash: After years of discussion, in 2018, calorie-labeling regulations became mandatory for menu boards in chain restaurants. But the growth of online food ordering platforms, which arent covered, meant that those regulations quickly became irrelevant for a large segment of the population. Were regulating for the 20thcentury in a digital world, Cash said. Although regulation is not a silver bullet and enforcement can be challenging, Cash said the U.S. can look to other countries such as Chile and Germany that have set high standards for marketing to children in through digital and social media.

Purchasing food online is the Wild West, said Pomeranz. We need to reel in deceptive and misleading claims on websites and online marketing. Even traditional nutrition information vehicles, such as labels on food packaging, need to be more robust. We still need to address labeling gaps, particularly with fruit drinks and toddler drinks, said Pomeranz. For example, theres no easy way to identify non-nutritive sweeteners unless you know the chemical name and read the ingredient list.

We need a whole-society approach. We all have a role to play in addressing misinformation, whether individual, researcher, funder, health care provider, technology platform, or media channel, according to Stevenson. This means technology companies working with government working with researchers. Restoring trust, particularly among marginalized communities that have not been part of the main narrative, is paramount. Social medias unique ability to support individualized messages can be divisivebut it can also enable those who distrust traditional information channels to partner in creating fact-based narratives that will inspire trust.

Cash sees a role for positive interaction between the public and private sectors. Industry can move faster than regulators to identify future problems. They can look for the win-win-win of doing right by their bottom line, consumers, and the planet. Changes in consumer demand and behavior can be levers for corporate change, added Kummer, a self-described optimist, noting that companies have, for instance, recognized consumers desire for information about foods sugar content.

With the climate emergency at our doorstep, its important to grasp the scope of the problembut also to take informed steps toward solutions, panelists said during this session on food systems innovation.

Katie Stebbins, executive director of theTufts Food & Nutrition Innovation Institute, moderated the conversation, which included climate risk management researcher Erin Coughlan de Perez, who is an associate professor and Dignitas Chair at the Friedman School and research director at the Feinstein International Centeras well as senior advisor to the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre.

Coughlan De Perez was joined by Sara Eckhouse, executive director of FoodShot Global, which funds big ideas to improve the food system, and Laith Abu-Taleb, vice president of corporate affairs and general counsel at Mori, which manufactures natural and sustainable wrapping for food. Below are three takeaways from their conversation during theFood Systems Innovations panel(video):

Its complicated.People tend to oversimplify their personal response to climate change due to whats called single action bias, said Coughlan de Perez. They think they can take one action and then dismiss this issue. For example, people will commit to turn off their lights more, or to recycle, she said, when, in fact, they need to recognize that the problem is broader and multifaceted. We not only need to recycle, but to do all sorts of things to reduce emissions, and also adapt to the changing climate, Coughlan de Perez said. Food systems are a big part of that.

And making good decisions in our current food system is just as complex, according to Eckhouse. She pointed to the array of different food labels as one example. Natural, sustainable, organic, generative, free range, cage free, fair tradewhat are you supposed to prioritize? she said. There are all kinds of tradeoffs that make it very complex even for people who want to do the right thing and want to make changes.

But it doesnt have to be hard.One misconception is that shifting to processes and products that are better for the planet will be difficult and costly, Abu-Taleb said. But in fact, it can often be the opposite. Its not very hard to try to do good. Doing good is doing good business, Abu-Taleb said. You can actually be making a profit.

For example, its not always a significant effort to reduce the number of company trucks on the road to cut down on emissions, Abu-Taleb said. And moves such as nixing plastic straws and redesigning your plastic lids can actually be cost-effective.

We like to say not only is our change low-lift, it will make the process easier. It will save on freight insurance, food wasteevery stage of the supply chain, said Abu-Taleb. Our goal is to say its not more difficult to change... its actually a better practice sometimes.

There is hope.With climate refugees spilling over borders and smoke from California wildfires reaching people in New York, there is a new level of awareness about the need for change, Eckhouse said. I think a lot of people are realizing its an emergency and realizing the global connectedness of these issues, she said. Theyre no longer able to separate themselves from them.

Abu-Taleb confessed that he doesnt know the difference between free range and cage freebut he said its great that consumers are asking for one or the other. There is clearly consumer interest in solving global problems that are interconnected, he said. And there are companies out there who have dedicated themselves to trying to solve them.

Eckhouse said shes particularly excited about research into the microbiomes effect on both agriculture and human health, while Coughlan de Perez pointed to theTufts Food Innovation Labs work on how to reduce post-harvest losses.

What is thoroughly impressive to me is the win-win-win potential, she said. When I look at food products, I see incredible innovations that are good for climate and also for food security, and for making sure people have access to quality, affordable food for a long period of time.

Here is What Hedge Funds Think About Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (HLF) – Yahoo Finance

Posted: at 1:56 am

Out of thousands of stocks that are currently traded on the market, it is difficult to identify those that will really generate strong returns. Hedge funds and institutional investors spend millions of dollars on analysts with MBAs and PhDs, who are industry experts and well connected to other industry and media insiders on top of that. Individual investors can piggyback the hedge funds employing these talents and can benefit from their vast resources and knowledge in that way. We analyze quarterly 13F filings of nearly 900 hedge funds and, by looking at the smart money sentiment that surrounds a stock, we can determine whether it has the potential to beat the market over the long-term. Therefore, lets take a closer look at what smart money thinks about Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF).

Hedge fund interest in Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) shares was flat at the end of last quarter. This is usually a negative indicator. Our calculations also showed that HLF isn't among the 30 most popular stocks among hedge funds (click for Q2 rankings). The level and the change in hedge fund popularity aren't the only variables you need to analyze to decipher hedge funds' perspectives. A stock may witness a boost in popularity but it may still be less popular than similarly priced stocks. That's why at the end of this article we will examine companies such as TFS Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:TFSL), Fisker Inc. (NYSE:FSR), and PLDT Inc. (NYSE:PHI) to gather more data points.

Today there are tons of metrics shareholders can use to evaluate their stock investments. A pair of the less known metrics are hedge fund and insider trading moves. Our researchers have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the best investment managers can beat the market by a healthy amount (see the details here). Also, our monthly newsletter's portfolio of long stock picks returned 185.4% since March 2017 (through August 2021) and beat the S&P 500 Index by more than 79 percentage points. You can download a sample issue of this newsletter on our website.

At Insider Monkey, we scour multiple sources to uncover the next great investment idea. For example, we like undervalued, EBITDA-positive growth stocks, so we are checking out stock pitches like this emerging biotech stock. We go through lists like the 10 best EV stocks to pick the next Tesla that will deliver a 10x return. Even though we recommend positions in only a tiny fraction of the companies we analyze, we check out as many stocks as we can. We read hedge fund investor letters and listen to stock pitches at hedge fund conferences. You can subscribe to our free daily newsletter on our homepage. Keeping this in mind let's view the recent hedge fund action regarding Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF).

Heading into the third quarter of 2021, a total of 40 of the hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey were bullish on this stock, a change of 0% from the first quarter of 2020. The graph below displays the number of hedge funds with bullish position in HLF over the last 24 quarters. So, let's see which hedge funds were among the top holders of the stock and which hedge funds were making big moves.

Among these funds, Renaissance Technologies held the most valuable stake in Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF), which was worth $469 million at the end of the second quarter. On the second spot was Route One Investment Company which amassed $418.3 million worth of shares. Alua Capital Management, Deccan Value Advisors, and Bronte Capital were also very fond of the stock, becoming one of the largest hedge fund holders of the company. In terms of the portfolio weights assigned to each position General Equity Partners allocated the biggest weight to Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF), around 14.62% of its 13F portfolio. Alua Capital Management is also relatively very bullish on the stock, earmarking 14.33 percent of its 13F equity portfolio to HLF.

Because Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) has experienced declining sentiment from the entirety of the hedge funds we track, it's easy to see that there was a specific group of money managers that decided to sell off their entire stakes by the end of the second quarter. It's worth mentioning that Carl Icahn's Icahn Capital LP said goodbye to the biggest position of all the hedgies tracked by Insider Monkey, worth an estimated $355.7 million in stock, and David Costen Haley's HBK Investments was right behind this move, as the fund sold off about $27.6 million worth. These moves are intriguing to say the least, as total hedge fund interest stayed the same (this is a bearish signal in our experience).

Let's now take a look at hedge fund activity in other stocks similar to Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF). These stocks are TFS Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:TFSL), Fisker Inc. (NYSE:FSR), PLDT Inc. (NYSE:PHI), Celsius Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CELH), Acadia Healthcare Company Inc (NASDAQ:ACHC), Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:IONS), and MGM Growth Properties LLC (NYSE:MGP). This group of stocks' market caps are closest to HLF's market cap.

View table here if you experience formatting issues.

As you can see these stocks had an average of 19.3 hedge funds with bullish positions and the average amount invested in these stocks was $362 million. That figure was $2095 million in HLF's case. Acadia Healthcare Company Inc (NASDAQ:ACHC) is the most popular stock in this table. On the other hand PLDT Inc. (NYSE:PHI) is the least popular one with only 5 bullish hedge fund positions. Compared to these stocks Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) is more popular among hedge funds. Our overall hedge fund sentiment score for HLF is 82.3. Stocks with higher number of hedge fund positions relative to other stocks as well as relative to their historical range receive a higher sentiment score. Our calculations showed that top 5 most popular stocks among hedge funds returned 95.8% in 2019 and 2020, and outperformed the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) by 40 percentage points. These stocks gained 21.8% in 2021 through October 11th and still beat the market by 4.4 percentage points. Unfortunately HLF wasn't nearly as popular as these 5 stocks and hedge funds that were betting on HLF were disappointed as the stock returned -18% since the end of the second quarter (through 10/11) and underperformed the market. If you are interested in investing in large cap stocks with huge upside potential, you should check out the top 5 most popular stocks among hedge funds as most of these stocks already outperformed the market since 2019.

Conventional and Organic Methods Produce Grain of Similar Nutrition – Lancaster Farming

Posted: at 1:56 am

Grain producers may have reasons to grow organically instead of with conventional methods, but the nutritional content of their harvest is not one of them.

Experiments at the Rodale Institute show that key nutrients that are often deficient in human diets occur at similar levels in field crops grown under different management programs.

This data is suggesting that we cant clearly say that the manure or organic systems are more nutritious than the conventional systems, said Andrew Smith, chief operating officer of the organic farming research center in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

The tests looked at calcium, iron, vitamin K, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B6, and protein, which represent the top nutrients deficient in the typical diet, both in America and globally.

There was no need to focus on nutrients that people generally consume in sufficient quantities, Smith said. Even if those nutrients are deficient in the crops, that shortfall isnt substantially affecting human health.

But for producing the nutrients humans could stand to eat in greater quantities, Smith said he cant declare one growing system definitively better than another.

Unfortunately, we are not showing a correlation between soil health and plant health, Smith said.

In corn, calcium and zinc were higher in conventional systems than in organic, but that may have been because those plantings used different varieties.

Were not sure why were seeing that, Smith said. We werent expecting it.

Rodales work addressed concerns, widely covered in the media, that crops have been losing nutritional quality over recent decades.

Around 2000 is where we became alarmed, Smith said. Data came out citing a nutritional decline in our food, particularly in minerals.

Not everyone believes alarm is in order.

In a 2016 study, Canadian government researcher Robin Marles said that changes in nutrition may be a result of variety selection, not soil depletion. Marles also said that seemingly large fluctuations in nutrients are within normal variations and unlikely to have significant effects on consumers health.

Rodale has recorded soil health advantages from organic practices in its farming systems trial, which has been running for 40 years and includes tilled and no-till plots with organic and conventional pest management.

It was only natural to see if soil health translated to human health.

We wanted to see if theres a link between degradation of soil and the decreased nutrients in our foods, Smith said.

Baxter International : Unlocking a Life of Possibilities with Home Parenteral Nutrition – Marketscreener.com

Posted: at 1:56 am

For 19-year-old Nutrition and Food Science student Trinity, home parenteral nutrition provides the opportunity to live an unencumbered life.

Globally, the number of people who require home parenteral nutrition (PN), a form of nutrition delivered directly into the bloodstream, is growing. Also known as total parenteral nutrition (TPN) or intravenous (IV) feeding, there are many reasons why PN is prescribed, including for people with intestinal disorders, such as Crohn's, colitis, and gastroparesis or those who have cancer, strokes, or Parkinson's disease, among other things. But home parenteral nutrition can mean expanded flexibility and freedom, providing the ability to manage nutritional intake outside of the hospital and offering the opportunity to continue daily activities like work and travel.

As part of Home Parenteral Nutrition Week taking place October 11-15, we spoke with Trinity, a second-year student at the University of Ottawa about her health journey, the transition to home parenteral nutrition and her plans for the future.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada along with five siblings and am bilingual in English and French. Growing up, I was a competitive athlete and participated in flying, gliding, and target shooting, among other activities, through the Royal Air Cadets, a national youth program in Canada. I flew a plane when I was 14!

When I'm not studying Nutrition and Food Science at the University of Ottawa, I enjoy hiking, listening to music (especially Taylor Swift) and cooking in my new apartment.

How did your PN journey start?

In high school, I started having trouble tolerating and digesting food. Initially, I received a feeding tube (enteral nutrition), but that wasn't helping.

After a lot of tests and visits with different specialists, my care team determined that a connective tissue disorder and vascular compressions were contributing to my digestion issues. In 2018, I began parenteral nutrition in the hospital.

In Canada, there are cities where you can do home PN, but it was not offered through my specific Children's Hospital or in Ottawa for children under 18. After about two years of inpatient treatment, in 2020, I was able to begin PN at home.

What surprised you most about beginning PN?

When I started PN, at times I felt isolated and frustrated by my situation, but I really tried to focus on advocating for myself and gaining weight.

My care team at the hospital did everything possible to "de-medicalize" my condition and provide as much of a normal experience for me and the other people on parenteral nutrition as possible. I also had a great relationship with my dietician; she inspired me to pursue an education in nutrition.

How did you navigate the transition to life on home PN?

My transition to home parenteral nutrition happened at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic which in some ways was a blessing. I was able to participate in school online, and as I got more involved in my nutrition program, I found a great community of people who understand the limitations that food sensitivities or other health conditions could bring. Generally, people don't even ask me why I'm not eating. If they do, it comes from a place of seeking education.

What do you hope for the future of patients who require home PN?

It's important to recognize how hard and awful going through any serious health situation can be. It just takes someone else acknowledging the difficulty and challenges along the way to have your feelings validated - not from a place of pity, but one of support.

While in a perfect world, I would love to eat "normally," there are a lot of positives with home parenteral nutrition. I am able to do most of my normal activities like hiking, and I don't get tired from carrying a backpack like I used to before. In fact, two days after I was discharged from the hospital, I was able to travel to Montreal to see a concert. Without home PN, I wouldn't have been able to do that.

What's next for you?

As the world starts to reopen, I want to get back to traveling and pursuing my goal of becoming a dietician. After graduation, I'd love to work for the United Kingdom's National Health System and live in Scotland.

A special thanks to Trinity for sharing her story. For more information on parenteral and enteral nutrition resources, visit the The OLEY Foundation .

Active nutrition beverages broaden appeal – Natural Products INSIDER

Posted: at 1:56 am

Ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages for sports and active nutrition abound today in all varieties: Energy drinks, sports drinks, wellness beverages, meal replacement, vitamin/mineral waters and other flavored waters. For active consumers, RTDs can either be a refreshing thirst quencher, an easy pick-me-up, or a functional beverage that offers a little something extra to help get them through their day.

Athletes and others who are health-conscious are turning to products with further well-being propertiespeople who like to experiment are opting for special flavors and innovative ingredients, while athletes have always sought high-protein beverages or isotonic drinks. Yet, the boundaries between traditional target groups are increasingly blurring.

Mordor Intelligence reported a global compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 12.2% for the entire sports nutrition sector during the next five years, with the beverages segment charting the highest sales. Weekend warriors are rounding out the target audience of sports professionals, ambitious amateurs and simply busy, active people. These consumers expect performance from RTD beverages with a positive health benefit.

To effectively reach these new target groups, understanding their objectives is important. Whereas professional athletes need to prepare their bodies for extreme stress situations with special foods and beverages tailored to their needsor quickly replenish their energy and mineral stores during and after training with isotonic drinkstypical exercisers are generally more interested in getting their bodies in better shape with a moderate level of activity. At the same time, those who hope to get more and longer-lasting energy for their everyday lives are turning to fitness drinks, as opposed to the quick-fix caffeine kick, for example, that numerous energy drinks offer.

Now, though, RTD sports products must also deliver in terms of taste. Protein beverages have a come a long way from their original offerings, as far as their mouthfeel and flavor. Today, protein-enriched drinks are, quite literally, on everyones lips. Expectations are rising and manufacturers are looking for new ways to compensate for sensory disadvantages, particularly related to plant-based protein enrichment and high-intensity sweeteners with masking ingredients, as well as introducing new flavors and additional functional ingredients for the category in general.

Last but not least, and for several reasons, manufacturers of RTD sports drinks for general consumer use need to keep an eye on carbohydrates, and specifically on sugars. Whereas athletes primarily understand that sugars and other carbs act as proven sources of energy, conventional sugar and thus added sugar in Nutrition Facts labels is one of the ingredients that typical consumers are wary of. Although sugars are often perceived to be associated with negative health consequences, they are also a key energy source the body can use to function.

Education and product messaging may be part of the solution. A 2020 Insites Consulting survey of 5,000 consumers in Spain, France, Germany, Poland and the U.K. showed that 1 in 3 consumers lack energy during the day and seek food and beverages to counteract it. The survey also indicated that 8 out of 10 young adults (18- to 34-year-olds) are reaching for energy-boosting products.

Although RTD sports drinks have become more popular, many still contain classic energy sourceshigh-glycemic carbohydrates such as maltodextrin, sucrose or glucose syrupwhich would not be fitting for the average consumer. High-glycemic ingredients are broken down shortly after entering the small intestine and cause the glucose level in the blood to rise rapidly after consumption. This can be useful, for example, as an instant energy boost during a sprint event or intense training sessions, but unhealthy for someone sitting at a desk during their work day.

Especially for active consumers who go to the gym to get their bodies in better shape or lose weight, the employee under duress, the student taking exams, or busy parents managing both work and home life with children, strong fluctuations in blood sugar levels are not ideal. If blood sugar rises sharply due to high glycemic ingredients, the body releases more insulin to transport this sugar into its cells. Consequently, blood sugar level drops just as rapidly. As a result, performance suffers, consumers feel exhausted and yet the body demands a replenishmentthe well-known sugar spike and crash effect.

A fully digestible carbohydrate with a low glycemic index (GI) can counteract this spike-and-crash effect via a slow and steady release of glucose, which keeps insulin levels low and provides an overall positive effect on blood sugar. Glucose is the main fuel for body and brain.

High glucose levels and elevated insulin concentrations have another disadvantage: They inhibit the bodys ability to burn its own fat stores. Studies have shown that sports drinks with slow-release carbohydrates instead of conventional sugars and/or other rapidly available carbohydrates increase the fat-burning rate and performance of endurance athletes (Nutrients. 2016;8[7]:390). Study participants who consumed an RTD beverage with a low-glycemic sugar had a consistently more stable blood sugar concentration during the entire training periodowing to a less intense initial blood sugar spikeand, therefore, lower blood insulin levels. This metabolic change caused a shift from carbohydrate burning to fat oxidation.

As a specialized category, isotonic sports drinks should contain the same content of minerals, carbohydrates and vitamins as human blood, which allows the supplied nutrients to be absorbed faster and in a better way by the body. In this context, osmolality refers to the number of dissolved particles per kilogram of fluid. This ratio should remain constant until the best-before date of a product to preserve the claimed benefit for the end user.

Studies have shownand the extensive handbook Alternative Sweeteners detailsthat shelf-stable beverages with a low-glycemic carbohydrate resistant to acid hydrolysis have a constant osmolality, even under different environmental conditions. This is an advantage, for example, compared with sucrose-sweetened beverages, the osmolality of which can vary. This makes it easier to claim the benefits of the specific particle concentration of the beverage, such as isotonic.

The market for sports drinks is growing, which makes for steady competition. Manufacturers of RTD beverages can provide a unique, innovative solution that offers a balanced energy supply, something anyone would love. This leads to functional benefits of sustained energy, improved fat metabolism, blood sugar control and osmolality for isotonic beverages. And to reach a broader base of consumers, of course, incorporating great taste is a must.

Using Tactical Nutrition to save first responders – KOSU

Posted: at 1:56 am

OSU Research Matters is a bi-weekly look inside the work of Oklahoma State University faculty, staff and students.

In this episode, Dr. Kenneth Sewell the school's Vice President of Research talks with Dr. Jill Joyce about how her tactical nutrition research benefits first responders.


Dr. Joyce: Tactical Nutrition, for me you're kind of probably wondering where that tactical comes from. It comes from tactical athletes or tactical populations. And these are your first responders and your military personnel. Firefighters, law enforcement officers and then, Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines. Those are your tactical athletes.

And we call them athletes because they have to do things that athletes have to do. They have to sprint, run long distances, drag, carry, lift, climb, all those sorts of things.

Dr. Sewell: So, from a nutritional perspective. What are the problems that those tactical professions share?

Dr. Joyce: We think of them as athletes, however, they tend to have a lot of extra physical and emotional stressors from the job. So they have a lot of physical health problems, at least on my side of things, the physical health problems, and that would be cardiovascular disease, cancer, and even overweight and obesity.

Dr. Sewell: You're adopting a particular approach to try to intervene with this group. And, then planning to test that. So, what are you devising? How are you trying to be helpful to these populations?

Dr. Joyce: Good question. So, my background is public health nutrition. So I take a public health approach, where instead of working with individuals, I create interventions or programs for large groups of people. For instance, a fire department or a law enforcement department, or a military unit.

I'm particularly trying to do that using electronic medium like websites because each department has a fitness trainer or a wellness coordinator. And if we create these theory-based, and evidence-based, aka, really truly effective programs to improve nutrition or performance, then these individuals embedded within the departments who really have the trust of the unit can deliver my program, and it can be very effective.

Dr. Sewell: Sounds like almost using extension agents to get that scientific approach or evidence-based approach in play.

Dr. Joyce: Absolutely. We're translating kind of more, what we call bench science or clinical science into disease prevention, health promotion, and even performance promotion programs.

And you're right. It's the university creating the program, translating the science, handing it off to the "educator" that's embedded in the department just like educators in the county, and we're even using extension's website Canvas Catalog to do so. So very much working with extension a lot.

Dr. Sewell: Of course, you're basing this on the scientific methods, scientific approaches to nutrition, but it sounds like you're still going to test it. You're going to still see what its effects are. How do you go about doing that?

Dr. Joyce: On my side of things, I do a lot of asking questions about for instance, what did you eat in a day? So I can figure out the nutrients that you're eating, the types of food groups that you're eating. And I can even give you a score. We call it dietary quality, but it's like out of a hundred kind of like a percentage grade that you get in class. And I can tell you how healthy you're eating, so I can see if that improves.

Dr. Sewell: This is Kenneth Sewell, the vice-president for research at OSU with OSU Research Matters.

Dr. Sewell and Dr. Joyce will be speaking more in depth on Tactical Fitness and Nutrition at 'Research On Tap' Monday, October 18th at Iron Monk Brewery in Stillwater. The informal discussion is open to the public and starts at 5:30 p.m. More information can be found at research.okstate.edu/rot.

Blueberry Groups Add New Nutrition and Health Research Leadership Position – Progressive Grocer

Posted: at 1:56 am

The U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) and North American Blueberry Council (NABC) have named Leslie Wada, Ph.D., R.D., as the first-ever senior director of nutrition and health research. While it is a newly created position, Wada has an extensive background in the industry and served as a longtime research consultant for the council.

A registered dietitian, Wada has worked as a consultant to several food and agriculture companies over the past 20 years. Earlier in her career, she taught dietetics at the University of California, Berkeley and was a research scientist in the field.

Knowing your body composition can help you swim fast and stay healthy.

As athletes begin a new season and set goals, it is important to know their body composition. It is an essential piece of the goal-setting process. Having a certain body-fat-to-muscle-mass ratio is definitely related to athletic performance. The correct portion of muscle mass increases strength, power, agility and speed.

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends the following body fat percentages for women and men:

However, to gain lean muscle, it is not just about the exercise protocol, but nutritional intake and timing.

Research shows three out of four student-athletes may not be getting enough to eat. It also shows that 70% of the women and 73% of the men are not getting enough total caloriesonly 81% of the women and 90% of the men are consuming enough carbohydrates and just 68% of the women and 81% of the men are eating enough protein based on USDA guidelines, NOT athletic guidelines.

Intakes of salt, total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol often exceed recommendations, even in diets deficient in major components.To help achieve goals, athletes should know their body composition. But body composition is much more than a body fat percentage number. Following are different ways the measurement can be utilized.

Knowing your body fat percentage

1. Creates goals for the season: Nutrition and exercise gets adjusted based on future testing outcomes.

2. Assists in the type of fuel mixture an athlete needs: If an athlete has a higher body fat, they usually need fewer calories and fewer carbohydrates. The opposite is true if the athlete has a low body fat. They usually need more calories and carbohydrates due to more lean weight.

3. Measures effectiveness of the training and nutrition strategy

4. Evaluates both lean weight and body fat: Some athletes need to gain muscle, others need to lose body fat, while some need to do both. This gives a scientific approach on where to go. The scale is NOT a good tool. For example, one of my athletes showed after doing a bod pod, they would be better off if they gained eight pounds of muscle and lost five pounds of fat. Thats crazy since they would be weighing three more pounds on the scale.

5. Provides reassurance when needed: Some athletes believe when they gain weight, they are gaining fat. Athletes can exchange fat at the same rate they gain muscle, so the scale is not displaying the positive exchanges.

AltaMed Health Services’ Mobile Unit Adds Free Glucose Testing and Highlights the Nutrition Benefits of Avocados for National Diabetes Month – WMTV -…

Posted: at 6:10 pm

New strategic campaign innovatively integrates nutrition facts about fresh avocados in efforts to reduce Type 2 diabetes risk among Hispanics, who have a 50% chance of developing the disease in their lifetime

Published: Oct. 5, 2021 at 9:03 AM CDT|Updated: 8 hours ago

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As November marks National Diabetes Month, AltaMed Health Services, the nation's largest independent federally qualified community health center, and Aguacates Frescos - Saborea Uno Hoy, a leading source of the healthiest reasons and tastiest ways to enjoy fresh avocados developed especially for Hispanic families, will join forces to improve nutritional education and access to glucose testing for the early detection and possible prevention of type 2 diabetes, a condition that impairs the body's ability to regulate sugar.

Beginning in the fall, the AltaMed mobile unit will travel throughout Southern California to offer free glucose testing and education that integrates messaging on how dietary fiber, like that found in avocados, may help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.Delicious recipes and meal planning tools featuring fresh avocadoswill be shared in English and Spanish to inspire families to eat healthy and boost fiber intake with the traditional favorite.

"We are excited to partner with Aguacates Frescos - Saborea Uno Hoy in the fight against type 2 diabetes by educating the community on the value of fresh fruits and vegetables with bilingual tools, like nutritious recipes that include fresh avocados," said Cesar Sauza, Registered Dietitian, Manager, Clinical Nutrition of Health Education and Wellness with AltaMed. "Creatively integrating the benefits of fresh avocados into our conversations about improving the quality of diet supports our commitment to be respectful of cultural preferences in our approach to help the community grow healthy."

If unmanaged, diabetes can be life-threatening and according to the CDC,US adults overall have a 40% chance of developing type 2 diabetes. But for a Hispanic/Latino American adult, there is more than a 50% chance, and it is likely to develop at a younger age. Diets rich in healthy foods containing fiber, may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

"Fiber, like that found in avocados, slows down food digestion which promotes satiety and prevents rapid rises in blood glucose following a meal," said Krista Linares, Registered Dietitian and Saborea Uno Hoy spokesperson. "Since most adults don't get enough dietary fiber, it is beneficial to raise awareness of easy ways to boost intake. Delicious avocados add fiber to the diet and are already a much-loved staple in Hispanic homes."

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans point to strong evidence that healthy eating patterns are associated with positive health outcomes. The Hass Avocado Board's Avocado Nutrition Center is continually studying how eating fresh avocados can have a positive effect on reducing risk factors for type 2 diabetes. Meal planning tools, recipes, articles by dietitians as well as access to clinical research that looks at how replacing carbohydrates with avocado affected glucose and insulin levels are available at SaboreaUnoHoy.com/AltaMed.

About Saborea Uno Hoy and the Hass Avocado BoardSaborea Uno Hoyis a leading source of the healthiest reasons and tastiest ways to enjoy fresh avocados developed especially for Hispanic families. A science-based resource, it provides delicious and culturally-relevant recipes and articles in Spanish and English to help make it easy for consumers and health professionals to learn more about the nutritional benefits of fresh avocados and ways to include them in everyday menus.
