Association between intake of artificially sweetened, sugar-sweetened beverages and preterm delivery: a large prospective cohort study

submitted by: englund-ogge
ABSTRACT Background: Artificially sweetened (AS) and sugar-sweetened (SS) beverages are commonly consumed during pregnancy. A recent Danish study reported that daily intake of AS beverage was associated with an increased risk of preterm delivery. Objective: We examined the intake of AS and SS beverages in pregnant women in order to replicate the Danish study and examine whether AS intake is indeed associated with preterm delivery. Design: This is a prospective study of 60 761 pregnant...

Diet composition is associated with endogenous formation of N-nitroso compounds in obese men

submitted by: silviagratz
Endogenous formation of carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds (NOC) occurs in the human gut. Red meat is considered the most important dietary component linked to NOC formation, although nitrate and vitamin C (VitC) also contribute. We previously showed that high-protein weight-loss diets increased fecal NOC and this was enhanced by simultaneous carbohydrate restriction. Although previous studies have focused on the effect of either 1 or 2 dietary components on endogenous NOC formation, no...

Separation of Carbohydrates in Pharma & Food Products (Webinar)

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
This webinar highlights the use of high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection (HPAE-PAD) for the analysis of carbohydrates including mono-, di- and oligo- saccharides. The experts also discuss how this approach is used to characterize large polysaccharies, such as maltodextrin. Focusing on pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and food & beverage matrices, this webinar is of value to anyone looking for a fast, easy and economical way to detect multiple...
