Functional Foods for Health Promotion: Implications for Reducing Obesity
Release/Announcement 1/1/2005
Published as a commentary in Nutrition Today (2004;40:165–168), this article provides highlights from the special conference on functional foods and an increased understanding of onset obesity and provided further knowledge about the physiological response to food and food components.
Effect of Chronic Caffeine Intake on Choice Reaction Time, Mood, and Visual Vigilance
Journal Article 1/1/2005

This study, published in Psychology and Behavior (2005;85:629–634), discusses the lack of research and expands on current research to examine chronic caffeine intake and how it affects our reaction time, mood, and visual vigilance.

Fluid-Electrolyte and Renal Indices of Hydration During Eleven Days of Controlled Caffeine Consumption
Journal Article 1/1/2005

After identifying critical gaps in caffeine research, this study examined the effects of tolerance and withdrawal from caffeine on hydration status in subjects who are regular users of caffeine. The findings were published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (2005;15:252–265).

Kinetic and Mechanistic Data for a Human Physiologically Bases Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Model for Acrylamide
Journal Article 1/1/2005

Despite gaps and limitations to the database, model parameters have been estimated to provide a relatively consistent description of the kinetics of acrylamide and glycidamide using a single set of values (with minor adjustments in some cases). This review, published in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology (2005;561:117–125), discusses the PBPK model for acrylamide.

Human Exposure and Internal Dose Assessments of Acrylamide in Food
Journal Article 1/1/2005

This review, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (2005;43:365–410), provides a framework contributing to the risk assessment of acrylamide in food. It is based on the outcome of the ILSI Europe FOSIE process, a risk assessment framework for chemicals in foods and adds to the overall framework by focusing especially on exposure assessment and internal dose assessment of acrylamide in food.

A Guide to Safety Assessment of Genetically Modified Foods
Monograph 1/1/2006
The monograph provides an overview of the specific steps of the science-based safety assessment process and provides case studies to illustrate these steps.
Role of Carbohydrates in Health & Disease - Evaluating Scientific Evidence for Dietary Guidance
Monograph 1/1/2006
This monograph gives an overview of the current status of carbohydrates science and consumption trends. The monograph also evaluates the role of carbohydrates in human health and disease such as obesity, diabetes, oral health, grain nutrition, cardiovascular health, and gut health.
Approaches to the Risk Assessment of Genotoxic Carcinogens in Food: A Critical Appraisal
