Sweetness is a sensation that contributes to the palatability of foods, which is the primary driver of food choice. Thus, understanding how to measure the appeal of sweetness and how to modify it are key to effecting dietary change for health.
Blood lipid concentrations display high interindividual variability in response to dietary interventions, partly due to genetics. The study reports combinations of single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with a significant part of the variability in LDL cholesterol and TG concentrations following dietary interventions differing in their fatty acid profiles.

Oral monosaccharides and disaccharides are used to measure in vivo human gut permeability through urinary excretion. Baseline 12C-mannitol excretion precludes its use; 13C-mannitol is the preferred probe for small intestinal permeability.
2015 Codex guidelines for a mycotoxin do not appear to be affecting the global wheat trade. Without a core-periphery structure and engaged nations in the center of world wheat trade adopting these guidelines, it may take longer for these guidelines to be widely adopted, and for populations worldwide to benefit from lower exposure to Deoxynivalenol in their diets.
