How Relevant is Finished Product Testing for Pathogens to Public Health Outcomes? Expand

Monday, August 1, 2022 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM ET

FDA's final rule "Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food" (the CGMP & PC rule) requires a facility that has identified hazards requiring preventive controls to verify that the preventive controls are consistently implemented and are effectively and significantly minimizing or preventing the hazard. Facilities also need to show the product has not been recontaminated after the preventive control. Verification activities can include physical measurements of the critical limits, product design measurements, environmental and/or product testing for indicator organisms or pathogens, which depend on the preventive control(s) and risks. However, many producers are asked by their customers to test for a multitude of pathogens in their finished product and their environment, to satisfy requirements for lot acceptance, regardless of whether the tests are relevant or even validated for the matrix in question. As a result, excessive testing diverts resources that could be focused on the real defined risks as well as causes products to be rejected to then be reworked or thrown away/wasted when they would not cause a public health issue. In addition, consumers may lose confidence in the food industry when recalls are announced that had no public health implications. This roundtable will discuss criteria for choosing organisms for testing finished product and/or the environment, debate if testing finished product vs. using HACCP monitoring, verification, and validation data are better indicators for lot acceptance, how human behavior fits into public health relevance, what should be recalled when no imminent public health risk has been identified, and whether zero tolerance should be the focus when testing.

Tuesday, August 2, 2022 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM ET

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is now the gold standard for foodborne pathogen identification, epidemiological investigations, and broader studies in microbial ecology. WGS has redefined the foodborne disease outbreak landscape through improved time-to detection resulting in fewer cases. It has further increased resolution of foodborne disease outbreaks by identifying smaller outbreaks that may have historically been overlooked. WGS advances have influenced detection targets, confirmation procedures, and risk assessments. WGS has and continues to redefine genus and species classifications for some foodborne pathogens, as well as provide greater insight into virulence factors. While WGS has advanced understanding of all foodborne pathogens, this technology currently has varying utility among foodborne pathogens. The case studies presented in this symposium are strategically selected to investigate the variation in use and utility of WGS as an epidemiologic and phylogenetic tool. Leading experts will present state-of-the-art case studies of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella enterica, and Bacillus cereus as representatives of the spectrum of advancements and limitations of WGS technology. This symposium will showcase current WGS impacts on defining or challenging current understanding of a species, its impact on regulation, insight into virulence capacity, and implications for the private sector.

Dayna Harhay, USDA Agricultural Research Service Case Study: Advancements and Limitations of WGS Technology on Bacillus cereus
Sophia Johler, University of Zurich Application of New Technologies for Improved Food Safety Expand
  • Wednesday, August 3, 2022 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM ET

The announcement of FDA's "New Era of Smarter Food Safety" initiative in 2020 brought heightened visibility to new technologies and approaches to create a safer food supply, including those to enhance traceability, improve predictive analytics, respond more rapidly to outbreaks, and reduce contamination of food. However, with more questions than answers on how the food industry can implement these technologies within their facilities and infrastructures, there exists an opportunity to help close the gap between what's achievable with these technologies and the current state. In this roundtable, a panel of regulatory and industry scientists will discuss how recent innovations in predictive analytics; new tools for risk assessment and environmental monitoring, including how to handle tracking and mapping data; and virtual monitoring technology for use in auditing and inspections can be used to improve food safety and sustainability. In addition, panelists will discuss whether the industry is using these technologies to their fullest extent, and limitations to implementing these technologies in the food industry.

Each fall, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors the world's largest meeting of food, nutrition and dietetics experts to address key issues affecting the health of individuals and communities throughout the country and around the world.

IAFNS is supporting two sessions at the FNCE 2022:

Are We Ready? Dietary Recommendations Based on Direct-to-Consumer Gut Microbiome Tests Expand

October 10, 2022, 1:30 - 3:00pm ET

Join IAFNS, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Research Dietetic Practice Group (RDPG), and the American Society for Nutrition Microbiology Research Interest Section (RIS) for this session at the annual meeting of nutrition professionals.

Achieving health goals is dependent upon the provision of evidence-based dietary recommendations. As the popularity of direct-to-consumer gut microbiome tests expands, it is important to understand the predictive value of these tests and promise for improving health of the users. Speakers in this session will provide a review of the state-of-the-science related to gut microbiome research, its promise for producing individualized dietary recommendations, and outline what yet needs to be known. By sharing researcher, clinical, and nutrition practitioner perspectives, this session will bring clarity to the current translatability of gut microbiome science and value of direct-to-consumer gut microbiome tests for supporting health, as well as the future promise of gut microbiome science and related consumer-directed tools.

Panel:

  • Philip Karl, PhD, RD, US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine - Moderator
  • Levi Tiegen, PhD, RD, University of Minnesota Medical School
  • Diane E. Hoffman, JD, MS, University of Maryland, Baltimore
  • Purna C. Kashyap, MBBS, Mayo Clinic

Performance Indicators:

  • 6.2.3 Interprets data to make recommendations and to inform decisions
  • 10.2 Implements the nutrition care process to ensure individual health goals are established
  • 8.1.2 Applies knowledge of food and nutrition as well as the biological, physical and social sciences in practice

This session is supported by the IAFNS Gut Microbiome Committee.

Flavanols and Cardiometabolic Health: Examining the First Ever Dietary Bioactive Guideline Expand

October 11, 2022, 8:30 - 9:30 am ET

Years of discussion among the dietetics community paired with a plethora of data from peer-reviewed human studies have culminated in the first ever dietary recommendation for a bioactive compound. In this session, members of the Academy-appointed Expert Panel will present the guideline recommendation for flavan-3-ols and cardiometabolic health, including an overview of the flavan-3-ols (a type of flavonoid), the supporting evidence for improved cardiometabolic health, and the importance of a food-based approach to intake. Translating this into practice requires a discussion of not only health equity but also barriers and facilitators to guideline adoption. As such, this session will highlight key considerations and strategies for successful implementation. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how they can implement this guideline to optimize cardiometabolic health and conduct future studies to fill critical research gaps.

Panel:

Kristi Crowe-White, PhD, RDN, The University of Alabama - Moderator
Kim Stote, PhD, MPH, RDN, State University of New York, Empire State College
Taylor Wallace, PhD, CFS, FACN, Think Healthy Group / George Mason University

Performance Indicators:

  • 8.1.2 Integrates knowledge of biological, physical, and social sciences with knowledge of food and nutrition to make decisions related
    to nutrition care
  • 8.2.4 Integrates new knowledge of disease states and clinical conditions into practice.
  • 6.2.3 Analyzes and interprets data to form valid conclusions and to make recommendations.

Diet-Related and Gut-Derived Metabolites and Health Outcomes: A Scoping Review: Abstract Presentation Number: PO24-19-22 Expand Presenting Author: Yuanxi Jia, Johns Hopkins University
Topical Area: Nutritional Microbiology/Microbiome

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To conduct a scoping review to map available evidence about the health impact of gut microbiota-derived metabolites in humans.

Methods: We searched PubMed and Embase for studies that assessed the health impact of gut microbiota-derived metabolites in humans. We included case-control studies, cross-sectional studies, cohort studies, and clinical trials. Any health condition was considered. Based on an initial prioritization phase informed by preliminary searching and expert input, we narrowed our scope to ten metabolites: deoxycholate or deoxycholic acid (DCA), lithocholate or lithocholic acid (LCA), glycolithocholate or glycolithocholic acid, glycodeoxycholate or glycodeoxycholic acid, tryptamine, putrescine, d-alanine, urolithins, N-acetylmannosamine, and phenylacetylglutamine. We used evidence mapping to identify evidence gaps and associations that may permit future systematic reviews. The screening was conducted in PICO Portal aided by artificial intelligence.

Results: Overall, for these 10 metabolites, we identified 352 studies with 168,072 participants. Most (326, 92.6%) were case-control studies, followed by cohort studies (14, 4.0%), clinical trials (8, 2.3%), and cross-sectional studies (6, 1.7%). Most studies assessed the following associations: DCA on hepatobiliary disorders (64 studies, 7,976 participants), colorectal cancer (19 studies, 7,461 participants), and other digestive disorders (27 studies, 2,463 participants); LCA on hepatobiliary disorders (34 studies, 4,297 participants), colorectal cancers (14 studies, 4,955 participants), and other digestive disorders (26 studies, 2,117 participants); putrescine on colorectal cancers (16 studies, 94,399 participants) and cancers excluding colorectal and hepatobiliary cancers (42 studies, 4,250 participants).

Conclusions: The association of gut microbiota-derived metabolites and human health is being examined in an increasing number of studies, most of which are case-control studies. As these metabolites hold considerable potential for elucidating microbiome-disease associations, there is a need to conduct more prospective studies including clinical trials. Moreover, systemic reviews are needed to characterize the metabolite-disease associations.

Relationship Between Exposure to Dietary Sweetness and Body Weight-Related Outcomes in Adults: An Evidence Map: Abstract Presentation Number: PO08-20-22 Expand Presenting Author: Kelly A. Higgins, USDA, ARS
Topical Area: Dietary Patterns
Supported by: IAFNS Carbohydrates and Low- and No-Calorie Sweeteners Committees
For more information, see here. 

ABSTRACT

Objectives: An evidence map was conducted to characterize published research investigating dietary sweetness and body weight. The primary aim was to identify studies that investigate total dietary sweetness and body weight-related outcomes among healthy adults; the secondary aim was to map the evidence that investigates sugar, sweetener, or sweet food/beverage intake and body weight.

Methods: Using pre-registered search terms (https://osf.io/my7pb), 33,609 publications (duplicates removed) from PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Scopus were screened for inclusion. Eligible studies were cross-sectional studies, longitudinal cohort studies, case control studies, clinical trials, and systematic reviews conducted among adults (≥18 years) which investigated the associations between total dietary sweetness, sugar, sweetener (energetic or nonenergetic), or sweet food/beverage intake on body weight, body mass index, adiposity, and energy intake.

Results: A total of 824 eligible publications were identified. Two clinical trials and 5 cross-sectional studies investigated the associations between total dietary sweetness and a body weight-related outcome. An additional 630 publications were identified that investigated sugar, sweetener, or sweet food/beverage intake and body weight-related outcomes, including 225 clinical trials, 87 longitudinal cohort studies, and 298 cross-sectional studies. Ninety publications reported on dietary patterns that included sweet foods/beverages alongside other dietary components. Most studies (91%) did not measure the sweetness of the diet or individual foods consumed. Additionally, 97 systematic reviews that addressed relevant but different research questions related to sweetness exposure and body weight-related outcomes were identified.

Conclusions: While there is a breadth of evidence available from studies that investigate sugar, sweetener, and sweet food/beverage intake and body weight, there is limited evidence on the association between total dietary sweetness exposure and body weight.

Quality of Popular Diets in the United States: Abstract Presentation Number: PO08-09-22 Expand Presenting Author: Zach Conrad, William & Mary
Topical Area: Dietary Patterns
Supported by: IAFNS Carbohydrates Committee
For more information, see here.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: 1) Evaluate the quality of popular diets in the US, and 2) model the effect of targeted food substitutions on diet quality.

Methods: Dietary data from 34,411 adults ≥20 y were acquired from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2005-2018. Usual dietary intake was assessed using the National Cancer Institute's usual intake methodology, and the Healthy Eating Index-2015 was used to evaluate the diet quality of eleven popular diets. A diet model was used to evaluate the effect of targeted food substitutions on diet quality.

Results: Participants that followed a pescatarian diet pattern had the highest diet quality (65.2, 95% CI: 64.0-66.4), followed by vegetarian (63.0, 62.0-63.0), very low grain (62.7, 62.2-63.3), flexible paleo (62.3, 61.1-63.4), low grain (61.2, 60.6-61.9), low-moderate grain (59.7, 59.3-60.2), omnivorous (57.8, 57.5-58.1), restricted carbohydrate (56.9, 56.6-57.3), time restricted (55.2, 54.8-55.5), moderate protein (55.0, 54.7-55.3), and high protein (51.8, 51.0-62.7). Modeled replacement of up to three daily servings of foods highest in added sugar, sodium, and saturated fat with alternative foods led to a statistically significant increase in diet quality and a decrease in energy intake for most diets (P < 0.001 for most diets).

Conclusions: Low diet quality was observed for all popular diets evaluated in this study. Modeled dietary shifts that align with recommendations to choose foods lower in added sugar, sodium, and saturated fat led to only modest improvements in diet quality but a larger reduction in energy intake. Greater efforts are needed to shift consumer perceptions away from reductionist dietary approaches that place undue emphasis on specific foods, individual macronutrients, and timing of eating, and toward healthy dietary patterns that emphasize consumption of a variety of high-quality food groups.

Association Between Restricted Carbohydrate Diets and Cardiometabolic Disease: Abstract Presentation Number: PO22-26-22 Expand Presenting Author: Corina Kowalski, William & Mary
Topical Area: Nutritional Epidemiology
Supported by: IAFNS Carbohydrate and Lipids Committees 
For more information, see here.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This study evaluated the association between restricted carbohydrate diets and prevalent cardiometabolic disease (CMD), stratified by fat intake.

Methods: Dietary and CMD data were obtained from 19,078 participants ≥20 y in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1999-2018. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) methodology was used to assess usual intake of foods and nutrients.

Results: Compared to individuals that met all macronutrient recommendations, those consuming restricted carbohydrate diets ( < 45%en) were 1.123 (95% CI 1.113-1.133) times as likely to have CMD, and those consuming the recommended amount of carbohydrates only were 1.060 (1.058-1.062) times as likely to have CMD. Higher intakes of saturated and polyunsaturated fat were associated with greater prevalence of CMD in restricted and recommended carbohydrate intake groups. Higher intakes of monounsaturated fat were associated with lower prevalence of CMD among participants that met carbohydrate recommendations only.

Conclusions: Participants that consumed restricted carbohydrate diets were more likely to have CMD compared to participants that met all macronutrient recommendations, and this association was modified by fat intake. Greater efforts are needed to understand longitudinal associations between carbohydrate intake and CMD.

Restricted Carbohydrate Diets High in Fat Are Associated With Increased Likelihood of Prevalent Metabolic Syndrome: Abstract Presentation Number: PO22-13-22 Expand Presenting Author: Dakota Dustin, The Ohio State University
Topical Area: Nutritional Epidemiology
Supported by: IAFNS Carbohydrate and Lipids Committees
For more information, see here.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This study evaluated the association between a restricted carbohydrate diet ( < 45% energy from carbohydrate) and metabolic syndrome stratified by fatty acid classes in a nationally representative sample of U.S adults.

Methods: Data on food and nutrient intake, and markers of metabolic syndrome, were obtained from 19,078 respondents ≥20 y in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1999-2018. The National Cancer Institute's usual intake methodology was used to evaluate the associations between usual dietary intake and prevalent metabolic syndrome.

Results: Compared to individuals that met all AMDR macronutrient recommendations, the odds of having metabolic syndrome were 1.085 (95%CI: 1.077-1.094) times higher among those that consumed a restricted carbohydrate diet (P < 0.001) and 1.115 (1.153-1.156) times higher for those that met only current recommendations for total carbohydrates (P < 0.001). Higher fat intake, regardless of class, was associated with increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome among individuals that consumed restricted carbohydrate diets but not among individuals that met current carbohydrate recommendations.

Conclusions: The likelihood of prevalent metabolic syndrome was moderately higher (8.5%) among individuals that consumed restricted carbohydrate diets compared to individuals that met all macronutrient recommendations. High intake of fat of any class was associated with increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome in those consuming a restricted carbohydrate diet.

Associations Between Essential Amino Acids and Functional Health Outcomes in Older Adults: Analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2001-2018:Abstract Presentation Number: PO22-09-22 Expand Abstract Topical Area: Nutritional Epidemiology, FSU Metabolic Kitchen & Diet Assessment Center
Presenting Author: Susan Cheung

ABSTRACT:

Objectives: Little is known about the relationships between habitual essential amino acid (EAA) intake and functional health in older US adults. This cross-sectional study investigates associations between usual EAA intakes and body composition, muscle strength, and physical function in US adults ≥ 65 y.

Methods: The Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies (FNDDS) 2001-2018 was linked to USDA FoodData Central to access existing EAA composition data for FNDDS ingredients. FNDDS ingredients without existing EAA data were matched to similar ingredient codes with available EAA data. Usual intakes of EAA, leucine, lysine, and sulfur-containing AAs (SAA; methionine + cysteine) from NHANES 2001-2018 were calculated as relative [mg/kg ideal body weight (IBW)/d] and absolute (g/d) intakes for individuals ≥ 65 y (n=10,843). Dependent variables were muscle strength measured by isometric grip test, BMI, waist circumference (WC), DXA-measured appendicular lean mass and whole-body fat mass, and self-reported physical function. Regression analyses were used to determine covariate-adjusted relationships between EAA, leucine, lysine, and SAA intake and functional health outcomes. P < 0.0013 was considered significant.

Results: Absolute and relative EAA, leucine, lysine, and SAA intakes were not associated with muscle strength or self-reported physical function in males or females or with body composition in males. Absolute EAA intakes (per g) were associated with WC in females (β ± SEM, 2.1 ± 0.6 cm, P = 0.0007). Absolute lysine intakes (per g) were associated with BMI (3.0 ± 0.7 kg/m2, P < 0.0001) and WC (7.0 ± 1.7 cm, P = 0.0001) in females. Relative EAA, leucine, and lysine intakes (per mg/kg IBW) were associated with BMI (0.07 ± 0.02, 0.26 ± 0.07, and 0.25 ± 0.04 kg/m2, respectively; P ≤ 0.0004 for all) and WC (0.18 ± 0.03, 0.81 ± 0.17, and 0.64 ± 0.10 cm, respectively; P < 0.0001 for all) in females. Relative lysine intakes (per mg/kg IBW) were associated with whole body fat mass (0.24 ± 0.07 kg, P = 0.0006) in females.

Conclusions: EAA intakes, particularly lysine, were positively associated with measures of adiposity in women ≥ 65 y. Investigating sources of lysine intake may provide insight about which foods or food groups are driving this relationship.

Amino Acid Intake and Conformance With the Dietary Reference Intakes in the United States: Analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2001-2018: Abstract Presentation Number: PO22-06-22 Expand Abstract Topical Area: Nutritional Epidemiology
Presenting Author: Claire Berryman, Florida State University
Supported by: IAFNS Protein Committee
For more information, see here. ABSTRACT
Objectives: The lack of complete amino acid composition data in food composition databases has made determining population-wide amino acid intake difficult. This cross-sectional study characterizes habitual intakes of each amino acid and adherence to dietary requirements for each essential amino acid (EAA) by age, gender, and race/ethnicity in the US population.

Methods: Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies ingredient codes with missing amino acid composition data were matched to similar ingredients with available data, so that amino acid composition could be determined for virtually 100% of foods reported in What We Eat in America, the dietary intake assessment component of NHANES. Amino acid intakes during 2-y cycles of NHANES 2001-2018 (n = 84,629; ≥ 2y) were calculated as relative [mg/kg of ideal body weight (IBW)/d] and absolute (g/d) intakes. Data from NHANES 2011-2018 were used to determine the percentage of the population consuming less than the Dietary Reference Intakes for each EAA by age, sex, and race/ethnicity.

Results: Relative intakes of EAAs were greatest in those 2-3 y (females: 1552 ± 9 and males: 1659 ± 9 mg/kg IBW/d) and lowest in those ≥ 80 y (females: 446 ± 2 and males: 461 ± 3 mg/kg IBW/d). Absolute intakes of EAAs were greatest in those 31-50 y (females: 31.4 ± 0.1 and males: 45.5 ± 0.1 g/d) and lowest in those 2-3 y (females: 22.4 ± 0.1 and males: 26.0 ± 0.1 g/d). In individuals 2-18 y and ≥ 19 y, relative intakes of EAAs were lowest in the NHB population (860 ± 16 and 505 ± 5 mg/kg IBW/d, respectively) and highest in the Asian population (994 ± 35 and 580 ± 7 mg/kg IBW/d, respectively). Less than 1% of individuals ≥ 19 y were not meeting the Estimated Average Requirements for each EAA.

Conclusions: Individual amino acid intakes in the US population exceed recommended minimum population requirements. Future studies can use the method described here to quantify habitual amino acid intake and examine relationships with health and disease.
