Bone experts publish consensus report on protein intake and bone health
It is known that protein intake contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass. But is it also beneficial to our bones? Twelve experts in bone health published a consensus report summarising the most recent insights on protein intake and bone health. One of their main conclusions is that protein contributes to the maintenance of bone mass, provided that calcium intake is adequate.
Ensuring healthy nutrients in sustainable food requires insight
The world's population is growing rapidly, but our natural resources are finite. So we have to be more careful with them. But what should we do? Simply eat fewer animal and more vegetable products? Well, it would seem that it's a bit more complicated than that and this became clear at FrieslandCampina Institutes's conference on sustainable food held in Utrecht on 19 June 2018.
Infographic Sustainable and healthy nutrition
Feeding a growing world population with more sustainable and healthy nutrition, is a major challenge for the future. What should you as a nutrition or health professional take into account in the composition of a more sustainable and healthy diet? The infographic of the FrieslandCampina Institute provides answers at a glance.
New meta-analysis: Protein enhances muscle mass during resistance training programs
Protein contributes to growth and maintenance of muscle mass. The effect of protein supplementation when used in conjunction with resistance exercise training (RET) on enhancing muscle mass and strength in athletes has been widely investigated. However various studies have produced conflicting results. Morton et al (2018) performed a meta-analysis to further investigate the effects of protein supplementation during RET in healthy adults.
Measures and metrics of sustainable diets
Designing food patterns that are more sustainable and healthy is more challenging than it first appears. Especially when aspects such as availability, affordability and food culture are also taken into account. How do you determine a more sustainable and healthy diet? Drewnowski (2018) is using linear programming models in his research.

Milk is the nutritious basis of many dairy products consumed throughout the world. Complete control over the nutritional, quality and safety aspects within the production chain is essential to ensure that all nutrients become available to consumers. This infographic and video explains the production chain of FrieslandCampina.
The role of iodine in our diet
Why is iodine important and what are main dietary sources of iodine? The FrieslandCampina Institute spoke with Dr Sarah Bath about her research at the University of Surrey, in the United Kingdom, on the role of iodine in our diet.
FrieslandCampina recognised for commitment to better nutrition
FrieslandCampina has moved up to a fourth place in the 2018 Access To Nutrition Index. With this it is the fastest riser compared to 2016. Every two years, the index tracks the contribution food and beverage manufacturers make to delivering better nutrition worldwide.
Effects of milk protein supplementation in older adults
Protein plays a role in the building and maintenance of muscle mass. The effects of milk protein supplementation on body composition in older adults, when combined with resistance exercise, were examined in several recent randomized controlled trials. Meta-analysis of these studies shows that milk protein supplementation in combination with resistance training has a positive effect on fat-free mass in older adults.
