    What is new in nutrition for the first 1000 days?: DSM Nutritional Products satellite symposium at the Power of Programming

    Manfred Eggersdorfer, Professor for Healthy Ageing at Groningen University and Senior Vice-President for Nutrition Science and Advocacy at DSM Nutritional Products, emphasized the importance of good nutrition during the first 1,000 days – from conception to the child’s second birthday – for life-long health. He then introduced the three experts who were going to discuss the latest science on vitamins K and D and long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) in early life.

    New study finds AN-PEP enzyme can degrade 86% of gluten in the stomach

    During the recent 38th ESPEN conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, the results of a new study into AN-PEP enzyme were presented. Gluten protein is hard to digest because it contains many proline residues, which are poorly digested by our own enzymes. The AN-PEP enzyme specifically targets proline residues and can efficiently degrade gluten into harmless fragments. Traditional DPP-IV enzymes target only the terminal peptide bonds in gluten protein. However, the AN-PEP enzyme is more efficient than those DPP-IV enzymes as it cleaves the entire gluten protein into small fragments, which are easier to digest.

    Only a Fifth of the Global Population Achieves Optimal Vitamin E Status

    A new study, published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research, shows that vitamin E status is inadequate in a high proportion of the global population. Only 21% of the studied population groups reach an adequate serum level. The assessment is the first of its kind to review over 170 publications worldwide on studies into vitamin E intake levels and serum concentrations.
