Independent Lab Finds Problems in Supplements

June 9, 2009: 11:02 AM EST
Many vitamins and supplements aren’t what they seem, according to ConsumerLab.com. About one quarter of the supplements tested by the independent lab over the last decade have had some sort of problem, including contamination, contents that did not match label claims, ingredients that exceeded safe limits, and pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Tod Cooperman, president of ConsumerLab.com, said the company buys products straight of the shelves, as does any consumer. The company tests pills for makers that want its seal of approval, and publishes ratings for subscribers, much as Consumer Reports does with household goods.

Discount Stores Open Doors to Healthier Purchases

June 8, 2009: 11:11 PM EST
Discount stores have a direct positive effect on people’s weight, according to a research project being undertaken by Charles Courtemanche of the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and Art Carden. Writing in Forbes, Carden says people have more purchasing power now, despite the recession, because of heavy discounting by groups such as Wal-Mart, Sam's Club, Costco and BJ's Wholesale Club, and other outlets. If prices drop, but income doesn’t, then people have more purchasing power, he argues, and the data collected in the study suggest that people buy healthier food when they are, comparatively, richer.

Review Panel Recommends DRI for Omega-3

June 9, 2009: 05:08 AM EST
Scientists are recommending that daily limits be set for omega-3 oil consumption, based on a review of data accumulated since 2002. The Technical Committee on Dietary Lipids of the International Life Sciences Institute of North America found there is clear evidence that both EPA and DHA reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, but not enough consistent evidence of benefits for cognitive health and cancer. They recommend setting a Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) of 250 to 500mg/day.

Plant Protein Diet More Effective than High-Carb Diet

June 8, 2009: 09:33 AM EST
The plant-protein based Eco-Atkins diet worked better than a high-carb diet at reducing levels of low-density lipoprotein or LDL, according to a research team lead by Dr. David Jenkins of St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto in Ontario. The diet also showed signs of lowering blood cholesterol, the researchers said. The traditional Atkins low-carb diet has been shown to help lower triglycerides and raise "good" cholesterol, but it also tends to raise bad cholesterol levels. The Eco-Atkins diet is high in vegetable proteins from gluten, soy, nuts, fruits, vegetables, cereals and vegetable oils.

Coca-Cola Pairs with Illy in RTD Coffee Market

June 6, 2009: 09:11 AM EST
Coca-Cola and Illycafe have formed a joint venture to take on the ready-to-drink coffee market. Named Ilko Coffee International, the ventures forst product, Illy Issimo, is being rolled out slowly to upscale outlets, rather than through Coca-Cola’s distribution system that reaches 20 million retailers every day. Coffee International CEO Vinay Kapoor said, “We’re being very careful and choiceful about how we do it.” The new brew is available in caffe, cappuccino and latte macchiato flavors in single-serv cans. RTD coffees are a growing market, with PepsiCo dominating in the US through a deal with Starbucks.

Consumer Advocate Calls for Better Labeling in Malaysia

June 6, 2009: 10:54 AM EST
Food labeling in Malaysia is not adequate, says Consumers Association of Penang president S.M. Mohamed Idris. Information is often very vague and general, Idris says. He is calling on authorities to take firm action to ensure producers comply with Malaysian labeling laws. BP Healthcare group food specialist, Ong Chiang Hock, backs Idris, saying that Malaysian manufacturers need only include four basic categories on labels – energy, carbohydrate, protein and fat. The US has 15 categories and Britain 12, he says.

Europe “Decade Away” from Accepting GM Wheat

June 5, 2009: 09:30 AM EST
The success of GMO wheat depends on convincing consumers they will benefit directly, say experts in wheat breeding and genetics. That day could be a decade away in Europe yet, they say. Meinolf Lindhauer, from Germany's Max Rubner federal research institute of nutrition and food, said "The majority of consumers in many European countries, not in all, do not accept GMO at all”. It would take a “convincing advantage”, such as a GMO wheat that could be eaten by people with celiac disease, to change people’s attitudes. Robert Henry, director of the Centre for Plant Conservation Genetics in Lismore, Australia, expressed concerns that wheat was losing the race to GM corn and soybeans. Some farm groups in major wheat exporting countries have called for development of GM varieties, while other farm associations and environmentalists have opposed the move.

Homegrown Foods Rival Exotic Types for Antioxidant Power

June 4, 2009: 09:50 AM EST
Many homegrown fruits and foods in the US contain equal amounts of antioxidants as exotic superfruits, as shown by the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) values, drawn up by the federal Department of Agriculture. The agency recommends an intake of at least 3,000 ORAC units a day – and ground cloves have the highest value, at 314,000, while acai berries have 161,000. Nutrition experts say that bioavailability – the processing method and form in which the ingredients are eaten, is important for effectiveness. Among domestic fruits that have high ORAC values are blueberries, cranberries and plums.

Kellogg Aims to Boost Fiber Content in Ready to Eat Cereals

June 4, 2009: 10:47 AM EST
Kellogg is increasing the level of fiber in its ready-to-eat cereals in the US and Canadian markets. Its aim is to ensure that nearly 80 percent of its cereals are “good to excellent” sources of fiber by 2010. The move follows efforts to reduce levels of sugar and sodium in products targeted at children. Products to get the fiber boost will vary in each market, but Froot Loops and Apple Jacks will be first off the block in the US. President and CEO David Mackay said that proprietary technologies and formulations are being used to add the fiber without compromising taste.

Study Shows YoplaitPlus has Digestive Benefits

June 3, 2009: 09:43 AM EST
General Mills’ YoplaitPlus™ yogurt has been shown in clinical trials to improve digestive health. Lead co-researcher Tamar Ringel-Kulka, MD, MPH, and her team from the University of North Carolina (UNC) – Chapel Hill found that digestive health improved in people who consumed one serving per day, whereas there was no change in people who consumed a product containing no yogurt cultures, probiotics or fiber. YoplaitPlus contains the probiotic culture Bifidobacterium lactis (Bb-12) and 3g fiber per 4-oz cup.

Organic Producers Seek New Ways to Differentiate Products

June 3, 2009: 10:08 AM EST
Sales of organic products in the UK appear to be slowing as the recession takes hold. The Soil Association Organic Market Report says that sales of organic products grew 1.7 percent by value in 2008, mostly in the first six to nine months of the year, after “spectacular” growth in recent years. “Organic” has become a generic term, shared by niche and private label products and everything in between, and brands now have to find new ways to differentiate themselves. Claims such as “responsible sourcing” and “free range” are also competing for consumers’ attention. Focusing on a product’s natural and wholesome qualities is a good strategy, and this can be reflected in packaging to attract buyers.

School Diets Fall Short on Whole Grains in US

June 2, 2009: 10:04 AM EST
School food-service directors in Minnesota are having difficulty in increasing the amount of whole grain in school food. Research lead by Len Marquart, assistant professor at the University of Minnesota's food science and nutrition department, shows that the directors aren’t always sure if a product meets whole-grain criteria, and find it hard to source suitable products. Most US school children get only one serving of whole grains a day, short of the recommended three. The university is engaged in a series of projects aimed at increasing the amount of whole grains children eat each day.

Review Dispels Myths about Aspartame, says Leading Manufacturer

June 2, 2009: 10:57 PM EST
Aspartame is not associated with adverse effects in the general population, and nor does it have an effect on appetite or food intake when used as a sweetener, says Brendan Naulty, president of Ajinomoto North Americam, a leading global manufacturer of the artificial sweetener. Naulty was commenting in a media release on a review of research posted on the American Dietetic Associaiton (ADA) Evidence Analysis Library web site. Lisa Carlson, a Chicago-based registered dietitian, said the study “adds meaningful, science-based information that will help registered dietitians respond to questions from consumers”. The ADA managed all aspects of the review, which was funded jointly by the ADA and Ajinomoto.

Neck and Waist Size are Major Factors in Children's Sleep Disordered Breathing

June 1, 2009: 11:05 PM EST
Metabolic factors are associated with childhood sleep disordered breathing, just as they are for adults, says a report in the journal SLEEP. The conventional assumption that tonsil size is a major factor was found to be wrong. US researchers found that waist size, though not neck size, and body mass index are strong indicators of sleep problems in children. The study found that 1 percent of children had moderate difficulties, 25 percent had mild snoring and 15 percent had primary snoring.

Organic Alone No Longer Good Enough for Consumers

June 2, 2009: 11:44 AM EST
Organic food producers are responding to an anticipated slowdown in growth by adopting an “Organic Plus” strategy. Sales are being affected by lower consumer spending power, declining investment levels and higher expectations from consumers, says Organic Monitor. Organic is no longer enough on its own as consumers seek products that are from ethical sources, are traceable, have small carbon footprints, are sustainable and produced by socially responsible companies. Some companies are investing in war-torn countries, and others are going greener by offsetting carbon emissions.

Mainstream Struggles to Find Right Wellness Formula

June 1, 2009: 10:42 AM EST
Mainstream retailers are trying to emulate the success of “greentailing” – specialist outlets operating in the wellness lifestyle category, such as Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe’s – but are having difficulty getting the formula right. Several ventures have failed, including Ike's Farmers Market (set up by Bashas' Supermarkets) and Supervalu’s Sunflower Markets. Some conventional retailers are having some success by integrating “wellness” products in their mainstream aisles, others by setting up “boutique” corners with green products. However, smaller stores have a lot of promise, so the drive is still on to create successful “stand alone” wellness outlets. There is probably no “one-size-fits-all formula” says Chuck Cerankosky, retail analyst with FTN Midwest, Cleveland. Location and knowing your customers may be the key.

Recession Frugality May Become Ingrained, Pundits Say

June 1, 2009: 09:19 AM EST
Frugality may be here to stay, according to a number of commentators. The view is backed by research: between one third and one half of consumers say they will continue their money-saving strategies even after the recession ends, according to retail consulting firm Retail Forward. Consumers were beginning to place more emphasis on value and relationships before the recession hit, and this will continue, as will the desire to “do good” with purchases, for example by buying “environmentally friendly” products. Heavy discounts are here to stay, say some retailers, including Home Depot. Some voices, however, say that people adapt quickly, and will return to pre-recession habits as the economy improves.

Link Between Diet and ADHD Poorly Understood

June 1, 2009: 10:18 AM EST
Much has been written about the relationship between diet and ADHD, but as yet there is no definitive study that answers the question of whether or not some food additives and nutrients affect symptoms of the disorder. The best that can be said is that a subset of children with ADHD might be affected. There is no consensus over the effects of synthetic dyes, flavors, and preservatives added to food on ADHD. Nor is there agreement on the role of omega fatty acids. Trials on the effects of vitamin and mineral supplements have also produced inconsistent results. There is, however, consensus on one topic: Children with ADHD should be encouraged to eat the same healthy diet as everyone else.

Sugar Content Surges in Healthy Foods

June 1, 2009: 09:55 AM EST
The amount of sugar in “healthy” foods in the UK has more than doubled in 30 years, according to McCance and Widdowson’s The Composition of Foods. In many cases sugar levels are above levels classified by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) as “high”. Increased demand for sweeter foods and lower sugar prices are thought to be factors in the increase. The issue is complicated by the fact that different sugars have different “health values”, and that labeling laws can be confusing. Industry spokespeople say they are taking steps to make the sugar content of their products more transparent, and the information easier to digest.

Growth Forecast in Worldwide Milk Consumption

June 1, 2009: 08:58 AM EST
Global consumption of milk and other liquid dairy products is expected to increase by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.2 percent over the next three years. In a media release, Tetra Pak, the world leader in food processing and packaging solutions, said that global consumption of liquid dairy products, excluding soy and dairy alternatives, reached a record high of 258 billion litres in 2008, an increase of 1.6 percent over the previous year. Nearly 96 percent of the growth is in emerging markets, such as India, Pakistan, China and the Middle East.

Vitamin D Linked to Life-Threatening Vaginal Infection

May 30, 2009: 10:33 PM EST
Vitamin D may be linked to the incidence of bacterial vaginosis (BV) in women, according to a study at the University of Pittsburgh. The condition can affect the health and even the life of babies if their mothers have it while pregnant. The researchers found that 41 percent of participants in their study had BV, and that 93 percent of those were deficient in vitamin D. They also found the opposite to be true: women with higher vitamin D levels were less likely to have the condition. Incidence is higher in African-Americans, because darker skin can limit the amount of vitamin D made through exposure to sunlight. African-Americans also tend to have poorer diets.

Vinegar Could be Means to Cut Salt in Food without Affecting Taste

May 29, 2009: 10:38 AM EST
A team of Japanese researchers says that adding a small amount of vinegar to food could be a way to cut the level of salt without affecting taste. The research looked at how low concentrations of salt and acids react together, focusing on vinegar, because it has high levels of acetic acid and is already used in cooking. They found that a test panel detected salt in a distilled water solution at far lower levels when vinegar was added. The same effect was not found when salt was added to vinegar.

Organic “Bioneers” Respond to Market Downturn

May 29, 2009: 12:50 PM EST
The global recession is hitting organic products as consumers cope with reduced spending power and the level of industry investment declines. This year could be the first in more than a decade where growth is in single-digits only. The UK market appears to be one of the hardest hit, recording 2 percent growth in 2008. Consumers are also demanding more from organic products, including ethical sourcing, traceability, the carbon footprint, sustainability and corporate social responsibility. “Bioneers” (organic food pioneers) are responding in numerous ways in a trend now tagged as “Organic Plus”. Strategies being employed include ethical and fairtrade sourcing, investing in the poorest (and often war-ravaged) parts of the world, offsetting carbon emissions, ensuring that products can be traced to the grower, more emphasis on sustainability, and more wide-ranging certification.

Health Lifestyles Give Way to Obesity and Smoking

May 27, 2009: 09:52 AM EST
Health and exercise trends among middle-aged and older Americans are heading in the wrong direction, according to a recent study. The researchers looked at five “lifestyle factors”, and found that the number of people adhering to all five dropped from 15 percent to 8 percent between 1988 and 2006. Consumption of fruit and vegetables, and levels of exercise, dropped, while obesity rates went up and the smoking rate remained the same. More people were drinking “moderately” in 2006 than in 1988, however. Lead researcher Dr. Dana E. King, of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, said that reliance on medication, hectic lifestyles and the difficulty of making lifestyle changes may be behind the trend. He also said that “it’s never too late” to change for the better.

100-Calorie Packs Lose Steam as Dieters Turn to Satiety

May 26, 2009: 10:28 AM EST
Satiety may be replacing calorie control as the next big trend in dieting. Consumers are turning away from 100-calorie packs, amid concerns about price, efficacy, taste and sustainability. IRI says sales of 100-calorie packs are down, and Datamonitor says the segment “has run out of steam”. Food analyst Phil Lempert says “newly frugal consumers have figured out how to measure out 100-calories by themselves”. There is also increasing evidence that the low-cal packs aren’t effective for weight control: people tend to eat more smaller packs, and show more restraint when snacking from a full-size package. The dieting trend is now also moving toward satiety, based around consuming more protein to make people feel full for longer, but this may itself be slowed because protein products tend to be more expensive.

Milk Industry Groups Oppose Sugar Tax on Flavored Milks

May 25, 2009: 12:32 PM EST
Two major milk industry organizations are criticizing a proposal to tax flavored milk drinks because of their sugar content. In a media release, the groups, the International Dairy Foods Association and the National Milk Producers Federation, said flavored milk was part of the solution to the child obesity problem, not a cause. The tax was proposed in a list of revenue options put forward by Senators Max Baucus (D-Mont.), chairman, and Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking Republican, on the Senate Finance Committee. The groups said that low-fat flavored milk was a good way for children to get essential nutrients without adding too many calories, and claim their view is supported by the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Red Bull Discounts Cocaine Threat In New Cola

May 25, 2009: 11:26 AM EST
Red Bull’s new cola is under threat in Germany after analysis revealed traces of cocaine in the mix. Bernhard Kuehnle, head of the food safety department at Germany's federal ministry for consumer protection, said that the North Rhine Westphalia Health Institute had found 0.13 micrograms of cocaine per can – not enough to pose a serious health threat, but enough to cause concern. Red Bull, and most Bolivians, say there is nothing to worry about. The coca plant is part of the cola mix, but the illegal cocaine alkaloid has been removed, in accord with international agreements. Cola is commonly used as a flavor, and its use is allowed in Europe and the US. Bolivians also chew the leaves without apparent ill-effect.

Go Back to Basics in Retailing, says Asda Chief

May 22, 2009: 09:31 AM EST
The era of abundance is over, and customers are now shaping businesses rather than businesses shaping customers, says Asda chief executive Andy Bond. It is time to get back to basics and offer the best possible value at a given price, he said. This means minimizing waste and excess at all levels of the retail operation. Asda had noticed three key trends emerging from the downturn. First, consumers were more aware of “need versus want”. Second, they now have less trust in major institutions than previously. Third, there has been a “rebirth of families and local communities”. "We’re starting to see the birth of consumer power – where big institutions will need to form a new bond with ‘consumer communities’ by exercising empowerment,” he said.

Cola Consumption Causes Problems Linked to Low Blood Potassium

May 19, 2009: 10:24 AM EST
Drinking lots of cola can lead to low levels of potassium in the blood, adversely affecting vital muscle functions, say Greek researchers. Dr Moses Elisaf from the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Ioannina and his colleagues reviewed cases where people drank between 2 and 9 liters of cola a day. All recovered after cutting their consumption of cola and adding more potassium to their diets. Elisaf said that three ingredients in cola contributed to low potassium levels – caffeine, glucose and fructose. Caffeine had the most severe effect.

“Nordic Diet” Touches All the Bases for Healthy Living

May 19, 2009: 07:48 PM EST
The “Nordic Diet” may be just as healthy as the Mediterranean diet, according to work at Copenhagen University. The traditional Scandinavian diet and lifestyle adds up to good health, researchers say. Mainstays are eating seasonal food, using locally sourced ingredients, and a balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat. Vegetables, grains and fish feature strongly, with meat about once a week. Report author Trine Hahnemann says some of the “old dishes” were “heavy and repetitive” and doesn’t believe everything was better in the old days. But the outdoor lifestyle, a connection with nature and using bicycles as a major form of transport do combine with the diet to keep people healthy. People also tend to “eat together around a table”, adding a valuable social component to the food.

Prebiotics a Burgeoning Field as Awareness Expands

May 20, 2009: 06:45 AM EST
Probiotics and prebiotics are a complex field, says R.J. Foster, contributing editor, Food Product Design. Prebiotics not only feed probiotics, they have benefits in their own right, such as boosting mineral absorption, reducing risk factors for colorectal diseases, improving the immune system and enhancing resistance to infection. Prebiotics are dietary carbohydrates, usually some form of fiber, that nurture probiotics. Polydextrose is one of the most common, used as a bulking agent and for fat and sugar reduction. Chicory inulin is also valued by food manufacturers because of its neutral flavor, excellent solubility and low viscosity. The door is opening to the use of prebiotics in bakery, cereal products, soups and prepared meals as awareness of their benefits increases, and the variety and sources expands.

The Hidden Depths Behind Sugar-Free Claims

May 19, 2009: 06:56 AM EST
There’s more to cutting the amount of sugar in foods than simply substituting another sweet product, says Ronal Dels, contributing editor at Food Product Design. Consumers’ overriding concern is the taste – 38 percent of the 14 percent of adults who avoid low-calorie, reduced-sugar and sugar-free foods and beverages, do so because of taste and/or aftertaste, says a 2007 Calorie Control Council survey. Different applications – sweetening beverages, baked goods or confectionery, for example – require different physical and chemical characteristics of the sugars, providing rich territory for food manufacturers and scientists to explore. Labeling laws also take a bit of navigating. The market for sugar-free and reduced-sugar confectionery is likely to grow as the economy recovers, adding further fuel for the drive to find the perfect sugar substitute.

Diagnosis First, then Go Gluten-Free, says Expert

May 18, 2009: 12:56 PM EST
Removing the gluten from your diet may stop your physician from being able to accurately diagnose celiac disease, says Shelley Case, RD. Speaking in the light of a new gluten-free diet being promoted by “celebrity” Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Case said "The only way to diagnose celiac disease is with a blood test and small intestinal biopsy and gluten must be present in the diet in order for these tests to be accurate." Celiac disease is among the most misdiagnosed and under-diagnosed diseases in the US, she said. Going gluten-free is the only effective treatment, and people should not self-diagnose.

UK Sticks to 2012 Date for Salt Reduction Guidelines

May 18, 2009: 08:42 PM EST
The Food Standards Authority in the UK is sticking to its aim of reducing the daily adult salt intake to 6 grams (two-tenths of an ounce) a day by 2012. In its latest guidelines, the agency says that the level children should vary between 2 grams and 6 grams, depending on age. The existing average daily adult intake is put at 9 grams (three-tenths of an ounce), a 10 percent drop over the past eight years which has saved more than $2 billion in health costs. About 20,000 premature deaths a year would be avoided with a 6 gram average, says the FSA.

Health Professionals Protest Fortification Of Junk Foods

May 15, 2009: 06:04 AM EST
Dietitians and health professionals are criticizing Health Canada’s proposal to allow the fortification of junk foods such as chips and flavored drinks, claiming that despite the addition of vitamins and mineral, these kinds of food are still junk. Nutritionists fear that fortifying junk food will encourage consumption and may lead to diabetes and obesity, because people might opt to choose the enriched junk food that may have high calorie and fat content over healthier foods. Industry group Food and Consumer Products of Canada has been a proponent of the policy change.

Stevia “Fully Competitive” Worldwide Following FDA Approval

May 14, 2009: 07:47 AM EST
Stevia-based Rebaudioside A (Reb A) sweeteners are now fully competitive with sugar for global brands, PureCircle supply chain vice president Dorn Wenninger told the Stevia World 2009 conference in Shanghai. In a media release, Wenninger said that the granting of GRAS status by the FDA last December had opened the doors to intense development activity. Based on previous experience, and its contracts with Cargill, PepsiCo and the Whole Earth Sweetener Company, PureCircle can now market Reb A at a “fully competitive price” worldwide.

Cereal with Milk has Same Outcome as Sports Drink

May 14, 2009: 07:36 AM EST
Cereal with milk may be as effective as sports drinks in aiding muscle recovery after endurance exercise, say researchers from the Exercise Physiology and Metabolism Laboratory at the University of Texas, Austin. Lynne Kammer and other researchers found that the cereal and non-fat milk combination affected muscles differently from the carbohydrate-electrolyte sports drink, but that the overall result after moderate exercise was similar. They conclude that the cereal combination could be used instead of sports drinks, particularly for athletes who “refuel” at home.

UK Debates Folic Acid Fortification in Wake of Canadian Research

May 12, 2009: 10:44 AM EST
Fortifying bread with folic acid could reduce the risk of congenital heart defects in addition to helping to protect babies from neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, Canadian experience shows. Canada began fortifying bread and pasta with folic acid in 1998, and since then there has been a 9 percent drop in neural tube defects and a 6 percent drop in heart defects. The UK’s Food Standards Agency is considering folate fortification, and is awaiting a report called for by the Chief Medical Officer. However, Dr Sian Astley, a scientist at the Institute of Food Research, said the move would be “like using a sledge hammer to crack a nut”. The British Heart Foundation also urged caution. Elderly people in particular could be adversely affected if they were deficient in other B vitamins.

Omega-3s Could Help Prevent Macular Degeneration

May 12, 2009: 06:06 AM EST
Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids from nuts, fish and olive oil, and avoiding trans fats, may be a recipe for avoiding age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to two Australian studies. A Westmead Hospital, University of Sydney, study found that eating one serving of fish per week was associated with a 31 percent lower risk of developing early AMD. One to two servings of nuts per week was associated with a 35 percent lower risk. A study at the Centre for Eye Research found that people who consumed higher levels of trans-unsaturated fat were more likely to have late AMD, and backed the finding that those who consumed the most omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to have early AMD.

Omega 3-Rich Foods Protect Against Early Onset of AMD

May 12, 2009: 10:34 AM EST
Eating foods high in omega-3, such as fish, nuts and olive oil, and avoiding trans fats, appears to protect people against the early onset of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to two Australian studies. One study found that eating just one serving of fish a week was associated with a 31 percent lower risk of developing the condition, and eating one or two servings of nuts a week was associated with a 35 percent lower risk. The other found that people eating more baked goods and processed foods high in trans-unsaturated fats were more likely to have late AMD, and those who ate more omega-3 fatty acids were less likely to have early AMD.

Mangosteen Extract Shown to Boost Immune System

May 12, 2009: 06:15 AM EST
Thai researchers have developed concentrated extracts from mangosteen that could boost the body’s immune system and have other health benefits. The research was sponsored by the Agricultural Research and Development Agency, a public organisation, and Asian Phytoceuticals Public Co. The discovery could help to boost flagging farm incomes because of a drop in mangosteen prices. Pichaet Wiriyachitra, chairman and chief executive of Asian Phytoceuticals, said that a sales contract had already been signed for purchases of 1,500-2,000 tonnes of the fruit this year, expected to rise to 20,000 tonnes next year. The company says the discovery could help to boost mangosteen juice sales in overseas markets, particularly Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei and the United States, where the product is not well known.

Chinese Inspectors Find No Melamine, Uncover More Illegal Food Additives

May 12, 2009: 05:59 AM EST

More than four million law-enforcement officials have found no further cases of melamine-contaminated milk in China in the last four months, says the Chinese Health Ministry. But they have uncovered more than 7,620 cases of illegally used food additives, arrested 30 suspects, closed 3,309 unlicensed food makers and revoked 87 business licenses of makers using illegal food additives, said Su Zhi, deputy director with the ministry's food safety coordination and supervision bureau. The inspectors seized 68 tonnes of illegal food additives and 116.3 tonnes of excessively used food additives during the campaign, initiated when thousands of Chinese children became ill after being fed milk contaminated with melamine. Officials are about to publish a third “blacklist” of forbidden chemicals, based on new substances found by the inspectors after tip-offs from public informants.

Thailand Finds Health Benefits for Mangosteen

May 12, 2009: 06:15 AM EST
Thai scientists say they have found that mangosteen extracts can boost the body's immune system and cure some (unspecified) diseases without side effects, adding that they have developed extracts for use in food as well as in health and beauty supplements. An export drive is being launched and a private company, Asian Phytoceuticals, has agreed to buy 2,000 metric tons of the fruit this year, which will be increased tenfold to 20,000 metric tons in 2010, from farmers in a number of outlying regions.

General Mills Marketing Cheerios “As a Drug”, says FDA

May 12, 2009: 06:09 AM EST
The Food and Drug Administration has warned General Mills that it is overstepping the mark with its claim that Cheerios can reduce bad cholesterol and cut the risks of heart disease. The claim amounted to marketing the cereal as a drug, the FDA said. It has not approved the claim. In a letter issued May 7, 2009 the agency takes issue with General Mills’ claim that “eating two 1½ cup servings daily of Cheerios cereal reduced bad cholesterol when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol”. This was clearly a drug claim, according to Dr Steven Sundloff, head of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety. He said that Cheerios were “a product that can be part of a healthy diet”, but said that companies tended to go too far with their health claims. The FDA was reacting to a complaint made in September by consumer advocacy group the National Consumer League. The letter to General Mills “marked a significant change of approach under the Obama administration” said Bruce Silverglade, legal director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. General Mills said the complaint related to how the information is presented, not to the health claims themselves.

Antioxidants May Block Benefits of Physical Exercise

May 11, 2009: 04:39 AM EST
Antioxidants such as vitamin C and E can block the positive effects of healthy exercise, according to a recent joint US-German study. Exercise promotes the release of free radicals, prompting the body to mobilize defense systems against stress and to process carbohydrates more effectively, said lead investigator Dr. Michael Ristow. Taking antioxidants after exercise blocks this effect, he said. The finding is of particular interest to diabetics, because the antioxidants negate the beneficial effects that exercise has on insulin resistance. The research was done by scientists from Germany's Leipzig and Jena Universities and Harvard's Medical School in Boston, and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. David L. Katz, director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine, said the study had no bearing on the value of ensuring people get enough vitamins in their daily diets.

Angels Alliance Supplies Vitamins to the Undernourished

May 11, 2009: 06:11 AM EST
For the past 15 years a little-known humanitarian group has been quietly making a contribution to the fight against malnutrition around the world. More than 300 US vitamin and supplement manufacturers are now part of the Vitamin Angels Alliance, contributing products or money to worthy causes. Participants include ingredients firms, contract manufacturers, retailers, trade groups, and services organizations such as investment banks and market researchers. They’re tackling issues such as blindness (caused by lack of vitamin A); rickets (lack of vitamin D and calcium); and even death from conditions such as measles or diarrhea in situations where the immune system has been weakened by a lack of vitamin A and other micronutrients. Surveys show that 92 percent of consumers like companies to contribute to nonprofits. Most of these are prepared to switch brands if price and quality are equal.
