Frontier Science: Reducing cardiovascular disease risk through replacement of saturated fat in milk and dairy products: The RESET study - T87

Friday 6th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. Dr Oonagh Markey - Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University of Reading

The UK adult population currently exceeds the dietary recommendation for saturated fatty acid (SFA) intake, a key modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Dairy products are regularly targeted as a strategy for SFA reduction. However, restricting dairy intake could lead to inadequate dietary intakes of micronutrients and protein. Alteration of the fatty acid profile of milk is a potential sustainable means of reducing SFA intake at a population level, whilst retaining the beneficial components of milk. In the context of the Medical Research Council-funded RESET human intervention study, the impact of fatty acid-modified dairy product consumption on key indicators of CVD risk will be discussed.
