EUFIC review: Facts on Fats
EUFIC’s review Facts on Fats provides the reader with an extensive, though easy to understand, overview of the various aspects related to the fats we consume through our diets. Part one of the review explains the basics of dietary fats. It clarifies what dietary fats are, how fats differ from a molecular perspective, which roles they play in the human body (briefly), and the importance of fats in food technology. The second part, dietary fats and health, is a review of the scientific literature that provides information on dietary fat recommendations and the most recent advances in nutrition science on the consumption of dietary fats and how this impacts health.
10 conselhos para uma alimentação saudável

Eat lots of different foods every day, variety is the recipe for health

You need over 40 different kinds of vitamins and minerals every day for good health. Since there is no single food that contains them all, it is important to balance your daily choices. In fact there are no good or bad foods, so you do not need to miss out on the foods you enjoy. The best way to make sure you get the right balance is to eat a wide variety of foods each day.

Sugars in our diet - Science supports enjoyment in moderation

Sugars, a type of carbohydrate, have been making media headlines repeatedly over the last years. Most strikingly, the debate tends to be based on gut feelings rather than solid science, often missing out on key studies and reviews. However, for policy makers to make informed decisions about sugar consumption in relation to health, they require a well-balanced reflection of the current scientific evidence. In this context, the European Food Safety Authority in its 2010 scientific opinion on dietary carbohydrates concluded that current data do not allow setting an upper limit for (added) sugar intake in relation to body weight, dental health and certain adverse metabolic effects.

Sugar is a common and important part of our diet and provides an essential fuel for our bodies. In fact, the brain and the red blood cells need glucose as an energy source since they cannot use fat, protein, or other forms of energy for this purpose. Sugar also makes our diet more palatable by adding sweetness to a large range of foods. As with any nutrient, excess consumption can have a negative health impact. Therefore, sugar should be eaten in moderation. Furthermore, an overall healthy lifestyle encompasses regular physical activity alongside a balanced diet.

To better understand sugars and their impact on health, EUFIC provides a range of information materials that cover many of the sugar-related topics and give an overview of the most recent scientific developments in the field.

New webinars - International Congress of Nutrition (ICN)

Two symposia organised by EUFIC at the 20th International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) in September 2013, in Granada, Spain.

Sugars and Health – The Controversies Continue
Obesity is a major threat to health and quality of life. It results from an energy imbalance between food intake and physical activity. To tackle obesity, dietary guidelines promote a reduction in intake of fats and sugars, consuming them in moderation in the diet. Whilst an increase in physical activity is widely accepted to be beneficial, we are now witnessing a debate among scientists on whether there is a specific role of sugars in the development of obesity. This symposium deliberates the effect of sugars on health, and presents a look at the role of sugars in the body from three different angles - from a hedonic, metabolic and endurance training perspective. Watch the webinar here.

Food and Nutrition Reporting in the Media
The media are an important source that can influence the public’s perception, attitudes and behaviours, including what people buy, eat, and believe about food. In the context of public health, journalists have an important role to play framing a story to put it into context. They receive information about food from different sources and stakeholders, including universities’ press releases, scientific publications, conferences, or individual relationships. This symposium gives insight into food safety and nutrition communication in the media through the talks of three experienced communicators in the field of food and nutrition. Watch the webinar here.
