Marine and plant-based n-3 PUFA and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Apr 15:1-8. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Cardiology,Aalborg University Hospital,Aalborg,Denmark.

n-3 PUFA may exert favourable effects on several processes that may inhibit the atherosclerotic process. However, the role of n-3 PUFA in lowering the risk of atherosclerotic CVD (ASCVD) has been fiercely debated. In the present paper, we summarise the main findings from previous follow-up studies of intake and studies using adipose tissue as an objective biomarker to investigate exposure to n-3 PUFA in relation to ASCVD risk and discuss some perspectives for further research.

The role of bioactives in energy metabolism and metabolic syndrome.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Apr 10:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

AINIA,Valencia,Spain.

Some food bioactives potentially exert anti-obesity effects. Anthocyanins (ACN), catechins, β-glucan (BG) and n-3 long chain PUFA (LCPUFA) are among the most promising candidates and have been considered as a strategy for the development of functional foods counteracting body weight gain. At present, clinical trials, reviews and meta-analyses addressing anti-obesity effects of various bioactives or bioactive-rich foods show contradictory results. Read More

The influence of dietary fatty acids on liver fat content and metabolism.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Apr 3:1-12. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism,University of Oxford,Churchill Hospital,Oxford, OX3 7LE,UK.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease encompasses a spectrum of conditions from hepatic steatosis through to cirrhosis; obesity is a known risk factor. The liver plays a major role in regulating fatty acid metabolism and perturbations in intrahepatic processes have potential to impact on metabolic health. It remains unclear why intra-hepatocellular fat starts to accumulate, but it likely involves an imbalance between fatty acid delivery to the liver, fatty acid synthesis and oxidation within the liver and TAG export from the liver.

Metabolic adaptations during negative energy balance and their potential impact on appetite and food intake.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Feb 19:1-11. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences,School of Food Science and Nutrition, University of Leeds,Leeds,UK.

This review examines the metabolic adaptations that occur in response to negative energy balance and their potential putative or functional impact on appetite and food intake. Sustained negative energy balance will result in weight loss, with body composition changes similar for different dietary interventions if total energy and protein intake are equated. During periods of underfeeding, compensatory metabolic and behavioural responses occur that attenuate the prescribed energy deficit. Read More

Role of metabolomics in identification of biomarkers related to food intake.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Feb 15:1-8. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science,Institute of Food and Health, UCD,Belfield, Dublin 4,Ireland.

Dietary assessment methods including FFQ and food diaries are associated with many measurement errors including energy under-reporting and incorrect estimation of portion sizes. Such errors can lead to inconsistent results especially when investigating the relationship between food intake and disease causation. To improve the classification of a person's dietary intake and therefore clarify proposed links between diet and disease, reliable and accurate dietary assessment methods are essential. Read More

β-Carotene in the human body: metabolic bioactivation pathways - from digestion to tissue distribution and excretion.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 02;78(1):68-87

C2VN, Aix-Marseille Univ.,INRA, INSERM, Marseille,France.

β-Carotene intake and tissue/blood concentrations have been associated with reduced incidence of several chronic diseases. Further bioactive carotenoid-metabolites can modulate the expression of specific genes mainly via the nuclear hormone receptors: retinoic acid receptor- and retinoid X receptor-mediated signalling. To better understand the metabolic conversion of β-carotene, inter-individual differences regarding β-carotene bioavailability and bioactivity are key steps that determine its further metabolism and bioactivation and mediated signalling.

Victor O Owino

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 Feb 8:1-7. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Nutritional and Health-Related Environmental Studies Section, Division of Human Health,International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna International Centre,PO Box 100, 1400 Vienna,Austria.

Africa is experiencing a sharp rise in non-communicable diseases (NCD) related to rapid globalisation and urbanisation leading to shifts in dietary and lifestyle patterns characterised by increased energy intake and physical inactivity. However, unlike more resource-endowed regions, Africa has a double burden of disease: NCD co-exist with infectious diseases including lower respiratory tract infections, HIV/AIDS and diarrhoeal diseases. The African economy is also relatively weaker, making it difficult to cope with this burden. Read More

Menopause, the permanent cessation of the menstrual cycle, marks the end of a woman's reproductive lifespan. In addition to changes in sex hormone levels associated with menopause, its timing is another predictor of future health outcomes such as duration of the presence of vasomotor symptoms (VMS) and the risk of hormone-related cancers. With ageing of the population, it is estimated that worldwide 1·2 billion women will be menopausal by the year 2030. Read More

Department of Nutritional Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences,University of Surrey,Guildford GU2 7XH,UK.

It is well known that severe iodine deficiency during pregnancy may cause impaired brain development in the child, with effects on cognitive and motor function, hearing and speech. Whether mild-to-moderate deficiency also affects neurological development is less well known, but in the past decade a number of observational studies have been conducted to answer this question and these studies are reviewed in this article. The picture is now emerging that even mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency during pregnancy may be associated with subtle impairments in cognition and school performance, although the evidence from randomised controlled trials is still lacking.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Dec 19:1-11. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Food Colloids and Bioprocessing Group,School of Food Science and Nutrition,University of Leeds,Leeds LS2 9JT,UK.

Ageing population suffer from increased risk of malnutrition which is a major determinant of accelerated loss of autonomy, adverse health outcomes and substantial health-care costs. Malnutrition is largely attributed to reduced nutrient intake which may be associated with several endogenous factors, such as decline of muscle mass, oral functions and coordination that can make the eating process difficult. From an exogenous viewpoint, nutritionally dense foods with limited innovations in food texture have been traditionally offered to elderly population that negatively affected pleasure of eating and ultimately, nutrient intake.

Strategies for online personalised nutrition advice employed in the development of the eNutri web app.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Dec 18:1-11. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Hugh Sinclair Unit of Human Nutrition,University of Reading,Reading RG6 6AH,UK.

The internet has considerable potential to improve health-related food choice at low-cost. Online solutions in this field can be deployed quickly and at very low cost, especially if they are not dependent on bespoke devices or offline processes such as the provision and analysis of biological samples. One key challenge is the automated delivery of personalised dietary advice in a replicable, scalable and inexpensive way, using valid nutrition assessment methods and effective recommendations.

Malnutrition in older adults: screening and determinants.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Dec 3:1-8. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

UCD Institute of Food and Health, University College Dublin,Dublin,Republic of Ireland.

Older adults are at risk of protein-energy malnutrition (PEM). PEM detrimentally impacts on health, cognitive and physical functioning and quality of life. Given these negative health outcomes in the context of an ageing global population, the Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life Joint Programming Initiative Malnutrition in the Elderly (MaNuEL) sought to create a knowledge hub on malnutrition in older adults.

Effects of consuming sugars and alternative sweeteners during pregnancy on maternal and child health: evidence for a secondhand sugar effect.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Dec 3:1-10. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Preventive Medicine,University of Southern California Health Sciences Campus,2250 Alcazar Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033,USA.

Consumption of sugar and alternative low- or no-energy sweeteners has increased in recent decades. However, it is still uncertain how consumption of sugar and alternative sweeteners during pregnancy affects pregnancy outcomes and long-term offspring health. This review aims to collate the available evidence surrounding the consequences of sugar and alternative sweetener consumption during pregnancy, a so-called secondhand sugar effect. Read More

Hepatic fatty acid synthesis and partitioning: the effect of metabolic and nutritional state.

Authors:
Leanne Hodson

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 02 20;78(1):126-134. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, University of Oxford,Churchill Hospital, Oxford OX3 7LE,UK.

When we consume dietary fat, a series of complex metabolic processes ensures that fatty acids are absorbed, transported around the body and used/stored appropriately. The liver is a central metabolic organ within the human body and has a major role in regulating fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Studying hepatic metabolism in human subjects is challenging; the use of stable isotope tracers and measurement of particles or molecules secreted by the liver such as VLDL-TAG and 3-hydroxybutyrate offers the best insight into postprandial hepatic fatty acid metabolism in human subjects.

Role of hypothalamic tanycytes in nutrient sensing and energy balance.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Nov 20:1-7. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

School of Life Sciences, University of Nottingham Medical School, Queen's Medical Centre,Nottingham NG7 2UH,UK.

Animal models are valuable for the study of complex behaviours and physiology such as the control of appetite because genetic, pharmacological and surgical approaches allow the investigation of underlying mechanisms. However, the majority of such studies are carried out in just two species, laboratory mice and rats. These conventional laboratory species have been intensely selected for high growth rate and fecundity, and have a high metabolic rate and short lifespan. Read More

Picky eating in children: causes and consequences.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Nov 5:1-9. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Centre for Academic Child Health, Bristol Medical School, University of Bristol,UK.

Picky eating is a common behaviour in early childhood. There is neither a universally accepted definition of picky eating, nor is there agreement on the best tool to identify it. Causes of picky eating include early feeding difficulties, late introduction of lumpy foods at weaning, pressure to eat and early choosiness, especially if the mother is worried by this; protective factors include the provision of fresh foods and eating the same meal as the child.

Interactions between nutrients in the maternal diet and the implications for the long-term health of the offspring.

Authors:
William D Rees

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 02 31;78(1):88-96. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

The Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, The University of Aberdeen,Foresterhill, Aberdeen AB25 2ZD, Scotland,UK.

Nutritional science has traditionally used the reductionist approach to understand the roles of individual nutrients in growth and development. The macronutrient dense but micronutrient poor diets consumed by many in the Western world may not result in an overt deficiency; however, there may be situations where multiple mild deficiencies combine with excess energy to alter cellular metabolism. These interactions are especially important in pregnancy as changes in early development modify the risk of developing non-communicable diseases later in life. Read More

Addressing malnutrition in low- and middle-income countries with double-duty actions.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Oct 31:1-10. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Public Health Section,School of Health and Related Research-ScHARR, The University of Sheffield,Sheffield,UK.

Multiple forms of malnutrition co-exist (the double burden) in low- and middle-income countries, but most interventions and policies target only one form. Identifying shared drivers of the double burden of malnutrition is a first step towards establishing effective interventions that simultaneously address the double burden of malnutrition (known as double-duty actions). We identified shared drivers for the double burden of malnutrition, to assess which double-duty actions are likely to have the greatest reach in preventing all forms of malnutrition, in the context of the sustainable development goals.

The balance between food and dietary supplements in the general population.

Proc Nutr Soc 2019 02 30;78(1):97-109. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Department of Public Health & Primary Care,Strangeways Research Laboratories, University of Cambridge,Worts Causeway, Cambridge CB1 8RN,UK.

In the past, vitamins and minerals were used to cure deficiency diseases. Supplements nowadays are used with the aim of reducing the risk of chronic diseases of which the origins are complex. Dietary supplement use has increased in the UK over recent decades, contributing to the nutrient intake in the population, but not necessarily the proportion of the population that is sub-optimally nourished; therefore, not reducing the proportion below the estimated average requirement and potentially increasing the number at risk of an intake above the safety limits.

Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, Radcliffe Department of Medicine,University of Oxford,Oxford,UK.

The present paper results from my receiving the Nutrition Society's first Blaxter Award, and describes briefly my academic history. My interest in human fat metabolism began in the Medical Research Council's Trauma Unit, studying metabolic changes in critically ill patients and their responses to nutrition. On moving to Oxford in 1986, I began to study pathways for depositing fat in adipose tissue. Read More

Dietary sugars, exercise and hepatic carbohydrate metabolism.

Proc Nutr Soc 2018 Oct 23:1-11. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Department for Health,University of Bath,Bath BA2 7AY,UK.

The present paper reviews the physiological responses of human liver carbohydrate metabolism to physical activity and ingestion of dietary sugars. The liver represents a central link in human carbohydrate metabolism and a mechanistic crux point for the effects of dietary sugars on athletic performance and metabolic health. As a corollary, knowledge regarding physiological responses to sugar ingestion has potential application to either improve endurance performance in athletes, or target metabolic diseases in people who are overweight, obese and/or sedentary.
