RESET event

Ian Givens, Professor of Food Chain Nutrition and Julie Lovegrove, Professor of Human Nutrition welcomed 150 delegates from countries across Europe at a one day event focusing on dairy products and health, at the University of Reading, earlier this month (September 1st 2016).

The event called: RESET - Leading New Directions in Dairy Foods and Health 2016, featured world leading experts who presented their latest research findings, giving delegates a new perspective on the effects of different dairy foods on cardiometabolic risk.

Ian said: "The event was a great success as we shared our findings from the RESET study, which examines the effects of replacing a proportion of the saturated fatty acids in milk fat with monounsaturated fatty acids by manipulation of the cow's diet on markers of risk for cardiometabolic diseases.

"It also enabled us to report on some of our related research such as the effects of milk proteins on blood pressure, vascular stiffness, and the need to consider the effects of dairy food in the whole diet, as well as giving some of our key collaborators (universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen, Wageningen and Cambridge) a platform to present our work."

Ian concluded: "This event was the last in a series of RESET presentations which have enabled us to not only inform others, but also to meet new organisations that fund research, such as Diabetes UK, which we hope will assist to build future alliances."
