Current Nutrition Issues Present Opportunities – And Threats – To The Dairy Industry

March 19, 2010: 01:37 AM EST
The dairy industry could benefit significantly from – or be harmed by – today’s food and nutrition trends. It is critical to “educate” the public and health professionals about the health benefits of dairy in each instance, according to a dairy industry group. Some connections to health are easier to draw. On the issue of obesity, dairy is well-positioned because of low-fat milk. Likewise, dairy stands to benefit from research that is recasting the negative image of saturated fats, and examining the satiety-inducing effects of dairy-based protein, such as whey. But there are more ominous threats to the industry: efforts to trim sodium, fat and sugar content, or restrict their intake by school children; expansion of vitamin D fortification to other foods; and efforts to encourage increased consumption of plant-derived nutrients.
