Repeated exposures to sweet vs. non-sweet beverages revealed no increase in sweet food consumption after drinking the test beverages.
A literature review revealed the use of myriad units of protein intake, with differential results on cardiometabolic outcomes in nutrition research. This paper recommends that authors be specific about the use of WHO (g/kg ideal BW) compared with US (g/kg actual BW) units, and ideally use gram or percent energy in observational studies.
A systematic evidence review links the lutein/zeaxanthin-rich macular pigment in retinal eye tissue with visual function. This is an important part of the overall process to quantify recommended intakes of the lutein/zeaxanthin for good health among the general public.
