Inventory of Microorganisms with a documented history of use in food
J. Seifert & G. Mogensen

In order to classify traditionally used microorganisms (starter cultures) as safe food ingredients, the IDF in collaboration with EFFCA (European Food and Fed Cultures Association) has compiled an inventory of microorganisms with a documented history of use in food. The inventory is contained in full in this paper.

Trans Fatty Acids
Y. Soustre, B. Laurent, J. Schrezenmeir, M. Pfeuffer, G. Miller & P. Parodi

The expression ‘trans fatty acids’ encompasses a large number of substances having highly heterogeneous roles. Several experimental and epidemiological studies suggest that trans fatty acids (mainly elaidic acid) would seem to have negative effects on plasma cholesterol levels and the incidence of cardiovascular disease, as described in this paper.

Milk lipids in diet and health – Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA)
M. Pfeuffer & J. Schrezenmeir

Due to its unique absorption and metabolism characteristics, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) preparations have been used therapeutically since the 1950s, mostly for parenteral nutrition and in the treatment of long-chain triglyceride (LCT) malabsorption, or as concentrated source of energy for preterm infants. This paper looks at the potential role of MCFA/MCT on health and performance in an everyday setting and in modulating Western life style health risks.
