19 Sep 2019 --- Sustainable raw material supply, commercial viability and potential demand are essential boxes to be ticked when sourcing and commercializing new botanical ingredients. Developing such novel ingredients is one focus of Nektium, while the other one is the production of well-known, herbal standardized extracts with active compounds which are considered “commodity ingredients.” Bruno Berheide, Strategy & Business Development Director at Nektium, speaks with NutritionInsight on how the company has fine-tuned the botanical NPD process.

18 Sep 2019 --- Some of the anti-cancer benefits of tomatoes, specifically those from a compound called lycopene, could disappear when eaten with iron-rich foods, according to a new study from Ohio State University (OSU). The research sheds light on the importance of understanding the nutritional content of our foods for optimal nutrient absorption. Strategically pairing foods can boost nutrient absorption – such as lycopene in tomatoes and olive oil – but less is known about which pairings inhibit optimal absorption, or even hinder it. The researchers will further investigate lycopene’s role in fighting cancer and its interplay with other compounds and nutrients, to allow for more reliable, science-based dietary recommendations for disease.

17 Sep 2019 --- Due to a number of saw palmetto extract adulterations being detected in botanical supplements in the US, there has been a rising need to detect fraudulent components and guarantee the ingredient’s authenticity.

17 Sep 2019 --- A 16-week vegan diet was found to boost the gut microbes involved in improving body weight, body composition and blood sugar control. This is according to a study by Dr. Hana Kahleova and colleagues, presented at the Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Barcelona, Spain. The authors note that the results are likely due to an increased intake of fiber, although other experts have flagged the study for its “preliminary and uncontrolled” nature.

17 Sep 2019 --- A new report has found a glaring lack of consistency between Unilever’s commitments and its business practice when it comes to fortification. The report suggests the global giant is failing to keep its own global promises on nutrition – especially in the Latin America region. Its authors also note that the findings could just be the “tip of the iceberg” as other big food companies may be skirting their nutritional responsibilities. The report also questions the effectiveness of voluntary industry commitments, and calls for global governments to tighten fortification regulation.

16 Sep 2019 --- Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has given up on offering healthy fast food options across its UK locations, as “no one is buying them,” according to a KFC senior executive. In an effort to boost healthier eating habits, the fast food chain launched non-fried alternatives in the past that were commercially unsuccessful. Instead, the company is now adopting a “health by stealth” approach, by reducing the calories, fat content and salt levels in its existing products. The move follows a global push toward healthier food options for the public. For example, Public Health England (PHE)’s proposal to reduce the maximum calories of ready meals to 544 per serving, as well as a Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) repo.

16 Sep 2019 --- Awareness of the importance of clinical evidence for new products is rising as pharmaceutical companies move toward nutraceuticals and consumer demand for quality products becomes more pronounced. NutritionInsight speaks with PharmaLinea’s Chairman and Founder, Blaž Gorjup, about how the private label food supplement provider sets itself apart in the market by conducting its own clinical substantiation of supplements – an act that is rare, if not non-existent, for a private label provider. However, he notes that the future market landscape could mean clinical substantiation of finished products will become a necessity for companies from all backgrounds, not only pharmaceutical.

13 Sep 2019 --- A recent study led by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) suggests that regular tea drinkers have “better organized” brain regions – associated with healthy cognitive function – compared to non-tea drinkers. The research team made this discovery after examining neuroimaging data of 36 adults aged 60 and above, which revealed that those who consume tea at least four times a week have “better brain efficiency.”

13 Sep 2019 --- Cases of diabetes have decreased in across many populations, according to an analysis of 47 studies between 1980 and 2017. Since 2006, the incidence of clinically diagnosed diabetes has continued to rise in only a minority of populations, with a third of the studies reporting a fall in incidence in this time period. While this is likely due to the success of preventative strategies changing people’s dietary habits, the researchers stress that “we cannot take our foot off the pedal” if the changes are to be maintained.

13 Sep 2019 --- Despite meat-alternatives benefiting from a health halo relating to various claims including gluten-free, organic and vegan, they are often highly processed and packed with salt. This is according to a new Australian report published by The George Institute for Global Health, VicHealth and the National Heart Foundation of Australia, which highlights the large variation in the salt levels in products such as meat-free sausages and falafels. The findings suggest that manufacturers can and should easily formulate lower-salt options. Meanwhile, Clare Farrand, Senior Public Health Nutritionist from The George Institute for Global Health in Sydney, tells NutritionInsight that the findings support her call for Australia to implemen.

12 Sep 2019 --- The publication of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)’s dietary reference values (DRVs) for sodium and chloride marks the end of a ten-year overhaul. Nutrition scientists compiled research to set science-based nutrient reference values for the daily intake of macronutrients, vitamins and minerals in healthy populations. The safe and adequate intake of chloride for adults is now set at 3.1g a day, while the sodium value is 2g a day. The DRVs will now be used by policymakers to establish food-based dietary guidelines that help consumers make healthy dietary choices.

12 Sep 2019 --- About 85 percent of consumers are interested in buying products with digestive health benefits, but only 45 percent actually do, a Kerry consumer report found. Based on the study, the company – which manufactures probiotic GanedenBC30 – identified the traditional pattern of breakfast, lunch and dinner as a potential key to boosting digestive health markets. Despite a growingly popular snacking and “fourth meal” culture, the fundamental principle of three meals a day remains resilient, according to the company, which in turn boosts the demand for probiotics.
