Universitat de Barcelona - New research suggests that high dietary intake of polyphenols are associated with longevity

Universitat de Barcelona - New research suggests that high dietary intake of polyphenols are associated with longevity | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
Página principal de la Universitat de Barcelona
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

A new study in the Journal of Nutrition concludes that overall mortality was reduced by 30% in participants who had rich-polyphenol diets (>650 mg/day) in comparison with the participants who had low-polyphenol intakes (<500 mg/day).

 

Raúl Zamora Ros, first author of the study, points out that “results corroborate scientific evidence suggesting that people consuming diets rich in fruit and vegetables are at LOWER risk of several chronic diseases and overall mortality”.

 

The research stresses the importance of evaluating —if possible— food intake by using nutritional biomarkers, not only food frequency questionnaires. One such biomarker is the TUP for Total Urinary Polyphenol.

Public Policy & Regulations Weekly Digest - annaresurreccion@gmail.com - Gmail | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
Google's approach to email
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has tentatively determined that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs), which are the primary dietary source of industrially-produced trans fatty acids, or trans-fat, are not generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for any use in food.  If finalized, it would mean that food manufacturers would no longer be permitted to sell PHOs, either directly or as ingredients in another food product, without prior FDA approval for use as a food additive. 

 The Federal Register notice will be published on November 8.  The pre-publication notice is available at https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2013-26854.pdf. ; Comments and scientific data and information can be submitted at http://www.regulations.gov within 60 days of publication of the Federal Register notice.
