  • Consumer health concerns across the EMEA Consumer health concerns across the EMEA Maria Pavlidou Recorded: Sep 15 2016 45 mins
    Today’s consumer is more health conscious than ever, with 62% being concerned about their current health and 73% worried about their health over the next five years. However, health is a multifaceted topic and primary health concerns can change throughout a person’s life time, meaning their nutritional needs also evolve. Health concerns differ from country to country and range from worries about weight to eye health.

    Join us on September 15th for our webinar on our new survey, which collected data from almost 7,000 participants across 10 countries in the EMEA region to uncover what the population focuses on the most when it comes to health. Presented by DSM’s Maria Pavlidou, Head of Communications HNH EMEA, and and David Paxton, Senior Global Consumer and Markets Insight Manager, the webinar will discuss the change in health concerns during different life stages and by country, as well as revealing the implications for the supplementation industry.
  • Omega-3s: the latest science in cardiovascular disease prevention Omega-3s: the latest science in cardiovascular disease prevention Prof. Philip Calder, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Brent MacDonald Recorded: Sep 12 2016 69 mins
    Across the globe, omega-3 intake is lower than recommended by regulatory bodies. This means that a large proportion of the population is missing out on the wide range of health benefits offered by omega-3s. Omega-3s have been linked to the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for more deaths across the world than any other condition.

    Join us for our new webinar, which will focus on the role of omega-3s in preventing cardiovascular disease. The webinar will be presented by Prof. Philip Calder, Nutritional Immunology at University of Southampton, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Brent MacDonald. Together, they will discuss current research into the area, the function of omega-3 fatty acids and the latest science of omega-3s in the field of cardiovascular health.
  • Nutrition Digest: Vitamin E and its emerging health benefits Nutrition Digest: Vitamin E and its emerging health benefits Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, Ph.D Senior Scientist and Director Tufts University, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer DSM, Jacob Bauly DSM Recorded: Aug 16 2016 16 mins
    Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports your health; however, intake still remains low among consumers globally. There is an ongoing discussion about the optimal vitamin E status and its role in addressing liver and brain health beyond nutritional recommendations.

    New and ongoing research suggests that vitamin E at higher doses may help individuals at risk, such as those with age-related macular degeneration, cognitive impairment, and non-alcoholic fatty liver. It is important to revisit the required intake levels for vitamin E for these conditions and further research is needed to support qualified health claims.

    Join us for the first in our webinar digest series to hear Prof. Jeffrey Blumberg, DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly discuss the emerging health benefits of vitamin E.

  • Food fortification part two: the economic benefits of nutrient-energy density Food fortification part two: the economic benefits of nutrient-energy density Prof. Adam Drewenowski, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: Jun 16 2016 59 mins
    Continued innovation in food fortification is allowing food manufacturers the opportunity to create products that are not only nutritious, but also convenient, cost-effective and appealing to consumers. Information about nutrient density can help identify foods that have a low cost to nutrient ratio and as part of affordable diets that meet nutritional needs.
    Join us for the second of two webinars on food fortification. This session will focus on the economic benefits of food fortification and nutrient-energy density. The webinar will be presented by Prof. Adam Drewnowski, Professor of Epidemiology, University of Washington, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly.

    They will present the economic benefits that food fortification and nutrient-energy density can provide, share examples of how food fortification can achieve these benefits, and explain how these can be applied to product development.

  • Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Vitamin C – benefits beyond immunity Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: May 19 2016 64 mins
    Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with many important functions in the body, such as immune-system stimulation, growth and repair of tissue, cardiovascular health, bone health and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Recent science has highlighted its potential health benefits, reaching far beyond its antioxidant function for which vitamin C is primarily known. As vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which the body cannot produce by itself, it must be obtained from the diet or from supplements. Yet, although vitamin C is a common constituent in most fruits and vegetables, many people are still deficient worldwide.

    Join us on May 16th, so that you can be one of the first to see our new webinar on the role of vitamin C in human health and disease. The session will be presented by Prof. Jens Lykkesfeldt, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences at University of Copenhagen, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. Together, they will discuss the science behind vitamin C, provide examples of its key known functions, as well as share the potential health benefits of consuming it in higher doses. If you miss the first showing, don’t worry - the webinar will also be made available on demand.

  • Food fortification and supplementation part one: filling the nutrient gap Food fortification and supplementation part one: filling the nutrient gap Prof. Balz Frei, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Jacob Bauly Recorded: Apr 7 2016 70 mins
    The majority of adults do not consume the recommended intake of essential micronutrients.

    Food fortification and supplementation provide manufacturers with the opportunity to enhance the health and wellbeing of consumers, enabling them to easily take in the vitamins and minerals complementing their daily dietary routine and filling the gaps. Two webinars will be dedicated to this broad topical field. The first session will focus on the science behind and the role of food fortification and supplementation in combating micronutrient deficiencies.

    The webinar will be presented by Prof. Balz Frei, Director and Endowed Chair of Linus Pauling Institute, and he will be joined by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. They will present the impact of food fortification and supplementation on public health, share examples of strategies, and explain how the benefit of fortification and supplementation can be measured. They will also cover nutrient density and how it frames the value of food fortification and supplementation.

  • Vitamin D: proven public health benefits Vitamin D: proven public health benefits Professor Mairead Kiely, Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly Recorded: Feb 17 2016 57 mins
    Vitamin D intake is low among the world’s population, which is a major contributor to clinical deficiency and a persistently high prevalence of low vitamin D status, particularly during wintertime at high (or low) latitude.

    Vitamin D deficiency contributes to the development of nutritional rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, both seriously debilitating conditions that are completely preventable with an adequate dietary supply of vitamin D and calcium. Regardless of which international recommended intake is selected, the current supply of vitamin D in commonly consumed foods makes it unfeasible for most people to meet their dietary requirements for vitamin D without supplementation.

    Emerging scientific evidence from the EC-funded ODIN project suggests that many foods, including fish, eggs, meats as well as dairy products could be part of a public health strategy for vitamin D deficiency prevention in the population. This would positively impact public health in a cost-effective and inclusive way.

    While most European countries are impacted by suboptimal vitamin D status, Finland is the exception. In 2003, the country introduced a national regulation which includes mandatory fortification of milk and margarine spreads. The population has now achieved a vitamin D status of 75nmol/L. Recently, the Swedish National Food Agency (NFA) proposed to introduce a similar regulation that will go a step further by extending the products subject to mandatory vitamin D fortification.
