POSTERS

Several ILSI Europe Task Forces are presenting their latest results

Poster 149/303 – Systematic review: Low energy sweetener consumption, energy intake and body weight in animals and humans

Background: Managing energy balance (i.e., energy intake vs. energy expenditure) well results in a steady body weight. On the contrary, eating an excessive amount of food causes an increase in body weight as this extra energy is stored in the body as adipose tissue (fat). Low energy sweeteners were developed for consumers looking for ways to reduce their sugar and energy intake. A considerable weight of evidence confirmed that consuming LES instead of sugar helps reduce relative energy intake and body weight.

Prof. Peter Rogers (University of Bristol) will present a poster on a systematic review that summarises the weight of evidence regarding the impact of low-energy sweeteners on energy intake and body weight. This scientific work and related dissemination activity is commissioned by the Eating Behaviour and Energy Balance Task Force. Please find here the poster.

Date: Wednesday, 21st of October 2015
Time: 11.05-12.00 hours

Poster 149/435 – Microbial metabolites as potential markers for health benefits of prebiotics

Background: Colonic microbial fermentation is a key function of the microbiota that might contribute to gastrointestinal health as well as overall health. As products (not necessarily end products) of intestinal metabolic activity some metabolites are generally accepted as beneficial to the host, whereas others are considered as potentially toxic and involved in chronic human disease both within the gut as well as systemically.

Prof. Kieran Tuohy (Fondazione Edmund Mach di San Michele all’Adige) will present a poster on a recent review ‘Towards microbial fermentation metabolites as markers for health benefits of prebiotics’. This scientific work and related dissemination activity is commissioned by the Prebiotics Task Force. Please find here the poster.

The moderated presentation of the above mentioned poster is scheduled for:

Date: Wednesday, 21st of October 2015
Time: 11.05-12.00 hours
Screen Number: 16

Poster 149/475 – Health relevance of the modification of low-grade inflammation in ageing: Could nutrition play a role?

Background: Human aging is characterized by a chronic, low-grade inflammation. Inflammaging is a significant risk factor for morbidity and mortality in the elderly people, as most age-related diseases share an inflammatory pathogenesis. Nevertheless, the precise etiology of inflammaging and its contribution to adverse health outcomes remain largely unknown. The identification of age-related inflammatory pathways is important in order to understand whether modulating treatments are beneficial for old people.

Prof. Philip Calder (University of Southampton) will present a poster about an ILSI Europe project that is considering the health relevance of modifying low-grade inflammation in the elderly. This scientific work and related dissemination activity is commissioned by the Nutrition, Immunity and Inflammation Task Force. Please find here the poster.

The moderated presentation of the above mentioned poster is scheduled for:

Date: Thursday, 22nd of October 2015
Time: 09.05-10.00 hours
Screen Number: 24
