Flavan-3-ols and Cardiometabolic Health: First Ever Dietary Bioactive Guideline

Dietary bioactives are food substances that promote health but lack quantified intake recommendations because they are not characterized as essential to prevent well characterized deficiency conditions. A newly released guideline by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends the quantity of flavan-3-ols to help adults maintain cardiovascular health. The recommendation translates evidence from a comprehensive systematic evidence review by Raman et al. using the AND guideline development process and applying a recently released (ASN endorsed) framework for developing recommended intakes of bioactive substances. The quantified recommended intake of flavan-3-ols to promote cardiovascular health is the culmination of grants provided by IAFNS to support the evidence review, framework development, and finally the independent AND guideline development process and publication. Please contact IAFNS if your professional health organization is interested in translating evidence for additional dietary bioactives.

Machine-Learning-Based Predictions of Polymer and Postconsumer Recycled Polymer Properties: A Comprehensive Review

Machine learning (ML) algorithms are gaining attention as cost-effective scalable solutions to exploit the physical and chemical structures of polymers. The basic steps for applying ML in polymer science such as fingerprinting, algorithms, open-source databases, representations, and polymer design are outlined in this review.

Quality of Popular Diet Patterns in the United States: Evaluating the Effect of Substitutions for Foods High in Added Sugar, Sodium, Saturated Fat and Refined Grains

Low diet quality was observed for all popular diet patterns evaluated in this study. Greater efforts are needed to encourage the adoption of dietary patterns that emphasize consumption of a variety of high-quality food groups lower in added sugar, sodium, saturated fat and refined grains.
