Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) alters body fat and lean mass through sex-dependent metabolic mechanisms in Drosophila melanogaster.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Apr 22:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

a Department of Food Science , University of Massachusetts , Amherst , USA.

There is increasing interest in the potential role of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in changing body composition to lower body fat with increased lean mass. In this study, we examined the sex-dependent effect of EGCG on body composition, locomotion, feeding behaviour, sugar levels, and transcription levels of key regulators in lipid, carbohydrate, and energy metabolisms in Drosophila melanogaster. EGCG had no effects on body weights in both females and males, but decreased fat accumulation in females compared to the control, accompanied by a reduction in food intake. Read More

a Department of Nutritional Sciences , King's College London , London , UK.

Current prune composition data are outdated and require a comprehensive and comparative re-analysis. This novel study aimed to: (i) analyse and compare prune composition from major countries of origin; and (ii) provide a comprehensive compositional analysis of prunes of USA origin and compare this with UK and USA database data. Prune samples were analysed for major nutrients and bioactive compounds and compared between countries of origin. Read More

Modelling of avoidance of food additives: a cross country study.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Apr 16:1-13. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

e International Life Sciences Institute Europe , Brussels , Belgium.

Food additives are strictly regulated and from technological point of view are useful ingredients. However, due to negative media news seeking for sensation, and sometimes irresponsible producer behaviour, utilisation of food additives generates consumer aversion, thus shopping rejection. The present study examines the factors that influence consumers' motives and attitudes towards the avoidance of food additives. Read More

Snacking in nutrition and health.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Apr 10:1-15. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

a Nutrition Foundation of Italy , Milan , Italy.

Many studies suggest that distributing energy and nutrient intake across 4-5 eating occasions/day (rather than across three standard meals) could favourably affect human health. The inclusion of 1-2 snacks in the daily pattern alleviates the potential digestive and metabolic overload caused by fewer heavier meals and might contribute to meet recommendations for food groups (e.g. Read More

Dried fruit and public health - what does the evidence tell us?

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Feb 27:1-13. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

f Food To Fit Ltd , Greens Norton , UK.

A scientific workshop held in the UK explored the potential contribution of traditional dried fruits to public health, identified gaps in the evidence and addressed priorities for research. Presentations considered the categorisation and composition of dried fruits; dried fruit and gastrointestinal health; the polyphenol content of dried fruits and their potential contribution to health; dried fruit and appetite in relation to the psychology of snacking and obesity; dried fruit and dental health including its role as a snack; and conflicts in public health advice for dried fruits. A round table discussion explored the contribution of dried fruit to "five a day" fruit and vegetable intake and fibre intake, whether dried fruits have equivalence with fresh in terms of dietary advice, advice on snacking in relation to dental health and appetite control, informing the public about different types of dried fruits and avoiding consumer confusion, and future research requirements.

Assessment of fat-free mass from bioelectrical impedance analysis in men and women with Prader-Willi syndrome: cross-sectional study.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Feb 4:1-5. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

c Istituto Auxologico Italiano, IRCCS, Division of Auxology and Metabolic Diseases, Piancavallo (VB) , Italy.

We have recently shown that population-specific formulae are required to estimate fat-free mass (FFM) from bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) in obese women with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) matched by age and percent fat mass (FM) to non-PWS women. The present cross-sectional study was aimed at developing generalised BIA equations that could be used in PWS subjects independently of sex and FM. We used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry to measure FFM and BIA to measure whole-body impedance at 50 kHz (Z) in 34 women and 21 men with PWS. Read More

The implications of following dietary advice regarding fish consumption frequency and meal size for the benefit (EPA + DHA and Se) versus risk (MeHg) assessment.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Jan 14:1-15. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

a Division of Aquaculture and Upgrading , Portuguese Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere, IPMA , Lisboa , Portugal.

Fish contain healthy nutrients, such as ω3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which protect against cardiovascular disease, and selenium (Se), which reduces methylmercury (MeHg) toxicity. Fish are also a dietary source of MeHg. This requires an assessment of the benefits versus risks. Read More

The comparison of betalain composition and chosen biological activities for differently pigmented prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) and beetroot (Beta vulgaris) varieties.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Jan 11:1-11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

a Department of Food Chemistry, Technology and Biotechnology , Gdańsk University of Technology , Gdańsk , Poland.

Betalains are a group of plant originated pigments with chemopreventive potential. The aim of this study was to relate the composition of betalains and chosen biological activities (antioxidant, cytotoxic, anti-genotoxic and influence on enzymatic activities) for extracts from differently pigmented varieties of prickly pear (yellow, orange and red) and beetroot (white and red). The assumption was that phytocomplexes of tested varieties of the same plant species would exhibit generally similar chemical composition differing mostly in betalain content, which will be reflected by their biological activity.

Oxidation of fish oil supplements in Australia.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Jan 9:1-11. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

a Australasian Research Institute , Sydney Adventist Hospital , Wahroonga , Australia.

Fish oils oxidise readily, forming primary and secondary oxidation products, which may be harmful for humans. Some recent studies reported that fish oil supplements in Australasia are oxidised above acceptable international limits, however other studies reported low levels of oxidation. This study employed peroxide and p-anisidine values determination to measure primary and secondary oxidation of fish oils in the Australian market. Read More

Effect of a weight-loss stabilization following a weight reduction with or without meal replacement on cardiometabolic risk in overweight women. A randomized controlled trial.

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Jan 9:1-14. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

a Department of Urology , Medical Nutrition Science, University of Bonn , Bonn , Germany.

The objective of this study was to examine the effect of a 3-month weight-loss-stabilization phase (phase 2) following a successful 3-month weight-loss phase (phase 1), including a conventional energy-restricted diet with (MR) or without (C) meal replacement, on the cardiometabolic risk profile in 80 overweight women. In phase 2, both groups continued to significantly reduce weight and sustained the significant decreases in waist circumference and LDL-C. During the study, folic acid concentration significantly increased in the MR-group, while homocysteine concentration significantly worsened in the C-group. Read More

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2019 Jan 7:1-11. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

b NUTRIPASS, IRD, SupAgro , University of Montpellier , Montpellier , France.

The effects of soaking and cooking on soluble sugars, alpha-galacto-oligosaccharides (α-GOS) and soluble dietary fibres (SDF) and insoluble dietary fibres (IDF) were assessed in five legumes (lentil, chickpea, fenugreek, faba bean and Egyptian faba bean). In raw seeds, total α-GOS content ranged from 2500 mg/100 g (chickpea) to over 4000 mg/100 g (fenugreek). Stachyose was predominant in fenugreek, lentil and chickpea, whereas verbascose was the main α-GOS in faba bean and Egyptian faba bean. Read More

Int J Food Sci Nutr 2018 Dec 2:1-6. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

d Fuji Oil Holdings Inc , Research Institute for Creating Future , Izumisano , Osaka , Japan.

Soymilk is rich in phytochemicals such as soy isoflavones (SIs) and soyasaponins (SSs). Dietary SIs and SSs display inhibitory effects on contact hypersensitivity (CHS), which was reported in a mouse model for allergic contact dermatitis (ACD); however, the beneficial effects of soymilk consumption on CHS remain unknown. Here, we studied the effects of drinking soymilk on CHS and gut microbiota. Read More
