ILSI publishes articles on original research, literature reviews and gap analyses, and meeting proceedings primarily in peer-reviewed journals. ILSI also publishes books, monographs, white papers, and other reports through ILSI Press.
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.
The monograph addresses issues such as understanding the concept of risk assessment, substantial equivalence, host and donor organisms, modification method, molecular characterization, nutritional consideration, assessment of allergenic or toxic effects, and how the scientific information is used to make decision about safety.
This article, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology, discusses the use of statistical and logistical methods to establish standardized minimum eliciting doses in allergic populations. It assesses the practicality and benefits of these approaches, as well as diagnoses shortcomings in the methodology, making recommendations for better success in future statistical models.
This article details three studies in 18-25 year-old endurance trained athletes to determine oxidation and optimal carbohydrate ingestion before and during exercise.
This article compares definitions of fiber, raising questions on criteria for defining fiber and analytical and functional was to distinguish among fibers.
This article summarizes a 2005 workshop which sought to
assess the state of the science; clarify definitions and behavioral questions on low-carbohydrate diets; and identify
related research gaps.
The proceedings Mental Energy: Defining the Science provide highlights of the April 2004 workshop on mental energy.
The supplement includes articles describing the science behind the philosophy and methods for deriving upper tolerable intake levels (ULs); how public health can best be served by the use of upper levels; and research needs for advancing the science that is used to establish the upper level.
