During FENS 2019, in Dublin, YINI experts will gather on the topic “Can yogurt address malnutrition?” on October 16th, 2019 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Discover below one of the topic of the symposium presented by Prof. Angelo Tremblay (PhD Department of Kinesiology, Laval University, Quebec City, Canada)
Yogurt consumption & NCD associated with malnutrition, overview of epidemiological data
Beyond their nutrient content, some foods have additional properties that also contribute health benefits. This is the case for yogurt, which has also a flexible matrix that permits manipulations favouring body functionality. Its status as a fermented food is another factor that may explain some of the health benefits of yogurt consumption.
On this basis, Prof. Tremblay will analyse the epidemiological data linking yogurt consumption and the prevention of non-communicable diseases.
