Special Report on Symposium on Understanding and Influencing Consumer Food Behaviours for Health: Executive Summary Report
Journal Article 1/1/2008

The symposium report examines the current understanding of Asian consumers and their food choices, the use of consumer research to modify food choices, and how health programs and food regulations can be used to promote healthier choices.

 
Special Report on Symposium on Diet, Nutrition and Immunity
Journal Article 1/1/2009

The symposium report reviews the development of the immune system particularly in infancy, as well as the role of diet, exercise and aging on immunocompetence. Also discussed are the importance of specific nutrients on enhancing immunity and the significance of maintaining a healthy microbiota in the gut leading to the concept of pro- and pre-biotics.

Sensitivity to Change in Cognitive Performance and Mood of Energy and Fatigue in Response to Differing Doses of Caffeine or Breakfast
Journal Article 1/1/2009

The mood and cognitive measurers of mental energy used in this investigation have similar sensitivity for detecting change in response to a small and moderate dose of caffeine and breakfast. 

This double-blind, placebo-controlled, within-subjects (N=18) experiment compared the sensitivity to change of cognitive performance and mood measures of mental energy following consumption of either 100 or 200-mg caffeine or a 440-calorie breakfast. Breakfast and 200-mg caffeine improved mood and cognitive performance. The sensitivity to change of the measures did not differ in response to any treatment (all p values> .05).

 
Sensitivity to Change in Cognitive Performance and Mood Measures of Energy and Fatigue in Response to Morning Caffeine Alone or in Combination with Carbohydrate
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This double-blind, placedbo-controlled, within-subjects (N=17) experitment compared the sensitivity to change o fthe cognitive performance and mood measures of mental energy following consumption of either a moderate does ofcaffeine (200 mg), a small amount of carbohydrate (50 g white bread), or both. Caffeine improved mood and performance. The sensitivity to change of the mood and cognitive measures did not differ in response to the three treatments (all p values> .05). The mood and cognitive measures of mental energy used here have similar sensitivity to detecting change in response to caffeine and carbohydrate.
 
Refining the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) for Risk Prioritization of Trace Chemicals in Food
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This paper builds on the existing TTC literature and recommends refinements that address two key areas: the inclusion of genotoxicity and duration of exposure.
 
Functional Foods for Health Promotion: Microbes and Health
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This set of expanded abstracts includes a general introduction and overview of how diet or dietary components can influence microbial growth and, ultimately, disease risk and overall health. Additional information is provided about how the food supply can set the landscape for gene expression in microbes and, ultimately, their influence on health (with some comments on how microbes might contribute to the obesity epidemic), child health and infections, role of microbes in cancer prevention, and effects of foods and their bioactive constituents as modifiers of microbes in the oral cavity.
