9780112431176: Update on trans fatty acids and health: position statement by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition 2007

The current guideline for the consumption of trans fatty acids (trans FA) is that they should not exceed 2% of food energy. Due to health concerns, the Food Standards Agency was asked to consider the case for a reduction in this recommendation to less than 1% and the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition has thus tasked with examining recent scientific evidence on the health effects of trans FA. It concludes that there is consistent evidence to support a moderate effect of trans FA on increasing the risk of coronary heart disease but evidence related to other diseases is limited and no reliable risk assessment can be made. There is however no firm scientific basis for a change in the current recommendation of not exceeding 2% of food energy. There is also insufficient evidence to justify the differentiation of trans FA from vegetable oil and animal sources.

Book Description TSO. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Update on Trans Fatty Acids and Health: Position Statement by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition 2007, Great Britain: Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, In 1994 the Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy (COMA) published its report on "Nutritional Aspects of Cardiovascular Disease", which recommended that average intakes of trans fatty acids (trans FA) should not exceed 2 per cent of dietary energy. Later reviews by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in 2003, followed by the European Food Safety Authority in 2004, confirmed the association between high intake of trans FA and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).The WHO report "Diet, Nutrition and Chronic Disease" (2003) advised that the population goal should be less than 1 per cent energy from trans FA. In 2003, the Danish Government introduced legislation to require that industrially produced trans FA should be limited to 2 per cent of the total amount of fat or oil in a food. During 2006, voluntary guidelines regarding the trans FA content of foods sold in retail outlets and catering establishments were established in Canada.In October 2007, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) received a request from the Secretary of State for Health to consider whether, because of concerns about the health impacts of trans FA consumption, there is sufficient evidence to make a recommendation that all individuals should consume less than 1 per cent energy as trans FA. As a result, the Agency asked the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) to review the current evidence on the health effects of trans FA.This position statement considers recent evidence regarding the health effects of trans fatty acids (trans FA) in order to determine whether current population dietary advice on trans FA should be revised. The review arose from a request from the Secretary of State for Health to the Food Standards Agency for advice on the evidence in relation to the health effects of trans FA.The chapters include: Trans Fatty Acids (FA) and Health; Trans FA and coronary heart disease; Trans FA and cancer; Trans FA and obesity; Diabetes; Early development; Other health issues; Conjugated Linoleic Acids (CLA) and Health; Introduction; CLA and body composition; CLA and insulin sensitivity; CLA, blood lipid levels and atherogenesis; and, CLA and carcinogenesis.
