Role and effect of dairy products

  1. 1. Ensuring Absolute Wellness
  2. 2. After the ice age… When milk was considered a toxin* to adult humans due to deficiency of lactase enzyme to the present times when dairy products are a significant food group in diets of children and adults, the dairy industry has come a long way… * Archaeology : the milk revolution, Andrew Curry, Nature 2013
  3. 3. Dairy Consumption - Marker for overall good health Milk has been part of the human diet for millennia and is valued as a natural and traditional food. Milk and dairy foods are considered to be one of the main food groups important in a healthy balanced diet. As milk provides a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals in relation to its energy content, it is considered a nutrient dense food* *THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF MILK, The Dairy Council
  4. 4. Milk and dairy products are nearly perfect foods! (1) Evidence from some epidemiological studies suggest that greater consumption of dairy products is associated with lower risk of metabolic related disorders and Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVD). Multiple dairy components in milk such as whey protein, casein and minerals have been posited as drivers of these beneficial effects (2) 1. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June 2013 Media Alert 2. Milk protein for improved metabolic health: a review of the evidence, Robin A McGregor and Sally D Poppitt, Nutrition & Metabolism 2013
  5. 5. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says… “Dairy foods represent a distinct group, presumably because of their relatively high calcium content; calcium is considered to be important for bone health. Calcium in non dairy sources is less concentrated, making it difficult to meet the recommended dietary allowance for calcium without concomitant consumption of dairy foods or supplements.” Ref: Dairy foods and bone health: examination of the evidence, Am J Clin Nutr September 2000
  6. 6. Dairy and Health
  7. 7. Dairy and Cancer People who consume less than a quarter of a glass of milk every day had 15 % more risk of colorectal cancer than those who consumed more than 1 glass of milk a day. Milk and Ca intake have been associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer* *Dairy products and health: a review of the epidemiological evidence, Eva-Elisa A´lvarez-Leo´nBlanca Roma´n-Vin˜as and Lluı´s Serra-Majem, British Journal of Nutrition (2006)
  8. 8. Dairy and weight loss  Higher low fat dairy intake among overweight type 2 diabetic patients on reduced-calorie diets enhanced weight loss process ( REF: Shahar DR, Abel R, Elhayany A, Vardi H and Fraser D. Does Dairy Calcium Intake Enhance Weight Loss Among Overweight Diabetic Patients? Diabetes Care. 2007) o A 12-week study of 34 obese adults on a balanced, modestly reduced-calorie diet found that those who consumed a calcium-rich diet supplied by 3 servings of yogurt a day lost 22% more weight and 66% more body fat compared to those who simply reduced calories and consumed little or no dairy.
  9. 9. Dairy and weight loss The participants who ate 3 servings of yogurt also lost significantly more inches around the waist compared to those on the low-dairy diet. ( REF: Zemel MB, Richards J, Mathis S, Milstead A, Gehardt L, Silva E. Dairy augmentation of total and central fat loss in obese subjects. International Journal of Obesity. 2005
  10. 10. Dairy and heart health  There is evidence to support that the intake of dairy products is associated with a lower risk of cerebrovascular accident or stroke.  Milk consumption is not associated with any increased risk of heart disease REF: Dairy products and health: a review of the epidemiological evidence, Eva-Elisa A´lvarez-Leo´nBlanca Roma´n Vin˜as and Lluı´s Serra-Majem, British Journal of Nutrition (2006)
  11. 11. Dairy and bone health  Consumption of dairy products in childhood and adolescence can improve bone mineral density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis in adult women. Ref: Dairy Products, Dietary Calcium and Bone Health: Possibility of Prevention of Osteoporosis in Women: The Polish Experience, Lidia Wadolowska et al, Nutrients 2013  The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests getting calcium from dairy foods first such as milk, flavored milk, cheese and yogurt to help build strong bones and reduce the risk of fractures Ref: American Academy of Pediatrics, Optimizing bone health and calcium intakes of infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatrics. 2006
  12. 12. Dairy and bone health Dairy products provide a unique mix of nutrients including calcium, phosphorus and protein that contribute to maximizing bone density and slowing age-related bone loss Ilich JZ, et al. Nutrition in Bone Health Revisited: A Story Beyond Calcium. Journal of the American College of Nutrition. 2000
  13. 13. However… Experts say that milk and dairy products are important components of a healthy diet but if consumed unpasteurized / untreated, they also can present a health hazard due to possible contamination with pathogenic bacteria or adulteration. REF: Unpasteurized Milk: A Continued Public Health Threat, Frederick L. Angulo, Clin Infect Dis. (2009)
  14. 14. The way out… UHT milk - A safe option!
  15. 15. What is UHT milk? UHT i.e. Ultra High Temperature treated milk Principle of UHT treated milk: Heating milk to 135 to 140 degree Celsius for two to four seconds rendering it safe to consume
  16. 16. UHT process - Ensuring safe drinking milk Reduces bacteria in milk to level of sterilization  Keeps nutrition of milk intact without preservatives  No boiling required  Free from adulteration 
  17. 17. The UHT process Perfect time-temperature combination Region of in-container sterilisation 2,000 Time (in seconds) 1,000 600 1% destruction of lysine Thermophilic spores (55ºC) 400 200 100 60 3% destruction of Vitamin B1 (thiamine) 40 20 10 UHT Region Mesophilic spores (30ºC) 6 4 2 1 110 120 130 140 Temperature (in ºC) 150
  18. 18. Combining Aseptic packaging and Aseptic processing Milk Collection Quality Check* Milk not conforming to required quality checks cannot undergo Aseptic Processing Consumer Aseptic Packaging Aseptic Processing * Milk undergoes quality check at customer’s dairy plant
  19. 19. Tetra Pak- Aseptic Packaging for UHT milk 6 layer packaging  Tamper proof  No preservative added  No contact with oxygen, light, moisture and microbes o Keeps nutrition intact o No need to refrigerate- convenient to store 
  20. 20. Ensure absolute health and purity for your family with UHT milk and Aseptic packaging! THANK YOU!!
