YINI Symposium “Can Yogurt Address Malnutrition?”

Can Yogurt Address Malnutrition

Danone Institute International (DII) has invited Prof. Mohammad Juffrie as IDIF representative to assist the YINI Symposium entitled “Can Yogurt address malnutrition?” which taken place at FENS 2019 Congress in Dublin (Ireland), on the 16th October 2019 from13.30 pm to 15 pm, with the following program:

  1. Yogurt - An easily digested fermented milk and a nutrient-rich food.
  2. Yogurt consumption & NCD associated with malnutrition: overview of epidemiological data.
  3. Can yogurt be a sustainable food choice?

FENS Events 2019

The Hydration Masterclass has been held since 2012 at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, Jakarta. This is thanks to collaboration between the Department of Nutrition Science and the Indonesian Healthy Hydration Working group. The objective of this class is to provide nutritionists, nurses and medical doctors the basic knowledge on hydration science as well as clinical evidence relating water to health that they can use in their daily practices.

As new scientific evidence is emerging on hydration, this topic is continuously evolving! This year’s training is divided in two parts, from August 7th to August 8th.

August 8th was dedicated to the Meet the Expert session, which is a group of courses and workshops exploring the basics of hydration. The first module done by Prof. Stavros Kavouras, PhD, from the University of Arizona, USA, is focused on water for health and exercise. It explores the physiology of hydration in the context of exercise performance. The second module called “How to choose intake assessment methods in research” presented by Prof. Saptawati Bardosono, MSc, from the Department of Nutrition Science at the University of Indonesia on behalf of Dr. Joan Gandy, RD, BDE, UK. It explores how best to record fluid intake in populations and present Indonesian fluid intake patterns.

Speaker 1: Prof Stavros A. Kavouras, PhD, FACSM, FECSS

Profile: Dr Stavros Kavouras is a Professor of Nutrition at Arizona State University and Director of the Hydration Science Lab. His Lab is studying the mechanisms by which water intake impacts health and performance. His current research is focusing on the effect of water intake on glucose regulation and its implication on children’s hydration and obesity. Dr Kavouras is the author of more than 120 peer review articles, 5,900 citations (h-index 39), and he has given lectures in 29 countries. He is a section Editor of the European Journal of Nutrition, Associate Editor of Behavioral Medicine and Frontiers in Nutrition. Dr Kavouras is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine & the European College of Sports Science as well as elected member of the American Society of Nutrition, the Obesity Society, and the American Physiological Society.


Measuring Hydration in Daily Life

There is increasing evidence for links between both the volume and types of fluids (drinks and beverages), and the risk of chronic diseases. Accurate estimates of intake in populations are essential to explore these relationships. This will enable the Identification of specific populations at risk of low fluid intake, in particular water intake, and allow exposure assessment of potential contaminates and specific nutrients present in fluids. However there are methodological difficulties when assessing fluid intake. Unlike other surveys the Liq.In 7 study uses a validated fluid intake diary to assess volume and types of fluids consumed over a 7 day period. The consistent use of this methodology facilitates intercountry comparisons and enables comparisons with national and international recommendations on fluid intake. To date 15 countries worldwide have been surveyed including China and Indonesia; longitudinal data is now available for both countries. More recently the Liq.In 7 study has reported data on patterns of consumption and locations of drinking events. These data provide useful information that is can be used when setting public health policies and developing programs, aimed at reducing associated chronic diseases.

Fluid Intake – A Scientific Approach

Water has been described as a forgotten nutrient. Looking into the history of the dietary advices of USDA since 1947 water has not been included in the any of the nutritional advices including myPlate or different versions of the dietary pyramids. Interestingly even in nutrition conferences or scientific journals you rarely find any section related to water intake and health. Majority of what we know regarding water balance comes from dehydration, temperature regulation and exercise performance. Total body water that account approximately 60% of body weight is distributed inside (intracellular) and out of cells (extracellular). Extracellular water is the water between cells called interstitial water and the water contained as part of the blood known as plasma water. Osmoreceptors and baroreceptor in circulation are primarily responsible for body water regulation by activating thirst and the fluid regulating hormones. Increase in osmolality activates the hormone vasopressin (also known as anti-diuretic) that decreased urinary output. What is interested is that this hormone gets activated well before thirst is activated. People who consume low amount of water have higher levels of vasopressin which has been associated with many negative health outcomes, like diabetes and chronic kidney diseases. On the other side adequate water intake decreases vasopressin.
