Functional Foods for Health Promotion: Microbes and Health
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This set of expanded abstracts, published in Nutrition Reviews (2009;67:40–48), includes a general introduction and overview of how diet or dietary components can influence microbial growth and, ultimately, disease risk and overall health.
Towards Establishing Dietary Reference Intakes for Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acids (DHA)
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This paper, published in the Journal of Nutrition (2009;139:804S–819S), summarizes a workshop sponsored by the Dietary Lipids Committee that presented the current scientific understanding of the impact of dietary EPA and DHA on cardiovascular, neurocognitive, and cancer outcomes.
The State of the Science on Dietary Sweeteners Containing Fructose: Summary and Issues to Be Resolved
Journal Article 1/1/2009
UPDATED: This article, published in the Journal of Nutrition (2009;139:1269S–1270S), highlights the discussion of the issues that were raised during a workshop sponsored by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute  and the USDA Agricultural Research Service surrounding the consumption of fructose.
Early Risk Determinants and Later Health Outcomes
Journal Article 1/1/2009
UPDATED POSTING: This workshop, discussed in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2009;89), stemmed from a quest to consolidate current knowledge on the early determinants of maternal and child health outcomes related to obesity, cardiovascular disease risk, and neurodevelopment. The primary goal was to delineate the relative influence of genetics and environmental factors.
Functional Foods for Health Promotion: State-of-the-Science on Dietary Flavonoids
Journal Article 1/1/2009

This article, published in Nutrition Reviews (2009;67:736–743), indicates that dietary flavonoids, particularly flavanols, show promising potential for reducing cardiovascular disease risk via reduction of inflammation and improvement in vascular function.

Neonatal Mice as Models for Cronobacter sakazakii Infection in Infants
Journal Article 1/1/2009
The objective of this study, published in the Journal of Food Protection (2009;72:2363–2367), was to compare the susceptibilities of BALB/c, C57BL/6, and CD-1 mice to C. sakazakii strain MNW2.
Microbial Population Profiles of the Microflora Associated With Pre- and Postharvest Tomatoes Contaminated with Salmonella typhimurium or Salmonella montevideo
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This article, published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology (2009;107:329–338), helps to determine the microflora profiles of pre- and postharvest tomatoes contaminated with Salmonella montevideo or S. typhimurium DT104.
Letter to the Editor: Proposed Minimum Characterization Parameters for Studies on Food and Food-Related Nanomaterials
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This letter, published in the Journal of Food Science (2009;74:vi–vii), discusses proposed minimum characterization parameters for studies on food and food-related nanomaterials.
Sensitivity to Change in Cognitive Performance and Mood Measures of Energy and Fatigue in Response to Differing Doses of Caffeine or Breakfast
Journal Article 1/1/2009

This double-blind, placebo-controlled 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. The results are published in the International Journal of Neuroscience (2009;119:975–994). 

Critical Research Needs in Food Safety Microbiology
Journal Article 1/1/2009
As discussed in this review published in the December issue of Food Protection Trends, control, detection, and mitigation were identified as three critically important research areas by the ILSI North America Committee on Food Microbiology for looking at spore-forming bacterial pathogens, spoilage organisms, and Salmonella.
