Turning point for chocolate? Theo pegs fairtrade and ethical sourcing as "fundamental principles"
US-based chocolatier Theo Chocolate is highlighting a turning point for the chocolate industry. Following its recently published 2019 Impact Report, the company pegs fairtrade and ethical sourcing as key principles of its ethos.

Root'd's new drink mixes to address US vitamin industry's "whack-a-mole" regulation
Root'd has launched a multivitamin premix for beverages tailored to the specific health needs of men, women and expecting mothers arriving in pomegranate, a a?? and lemon ginger flavors, respectively. The start-up aims to become the most transparent vitamin brand in the market and its products are positioned as responding to an unregulated US vitamin industry that operates reactively instead of preemptively.

Lutein mkt projected to be valued at $454.8 mn by '26, growing at 6.4%
The global lutein market was calculated to be worth $274.6 million in the year 2018, and is projected to be valued at $454.8 million by the year 2026, delivering a CAGR of 6.4 per cent in that duration.

Peer pressure: Online social circles influence eating habits, says new research
Social media users are more likely to eat fruit and veg - or snack on junk food - if they think their friends do the same, a new study has found. The research, by Aston University's School of Life and Health Sciences, found that participants ate an extra fifth of a portion of fruit and vegetables themselves for every portion they thought their social media peers ate. Interestingly, if they believed their friends got their five-a-day of fruit and vegetable, they were more likely to consume an extra portion themselves. Conversely, Facebook users were found to consume an extra portion of unhealthy snack foods and sugary drinks for every three portions they believed their online social circles did. The findings suggest that consumers eat around a third more junk food if we think our friends also indulge. Social media: a powerful tool The Aston University researchers said the findings provide the first evidence to suggest our online social circles could be implicitly influencing ea...

Beneo's slow release carb Palatinose supports addl wt loss, finds study
A recently-published scientific study has shown that Beneo's slow release and low glycaemic carbohydrate Palatinose supports additional loss of body weight and fat mass in overweight and obese adults, when replacing sucrose in a weight loss diet. These findings were linked to the advantage of Palatinose in steering the metabolism towards fat burning and highlight that carbohydrate choice matters in a weight loss diet, beyond calorie-counting. The study was carried out by Dr Helen Lightowler and Professor Jeya Henry at Oxford Brookes University's Functional Food Centre in the United Kingdom. The randomised, double-blind, controlled intervention study aimed to evaluate the effects of an energy-reduced diet containing Palatinose on body weight loss, in comparison to sucrose. Over a 12-week period, 50 healthy overweight and obese adults consumed either 40g of Palatinose or sucrose over four meals a day, as part of their energy-reduced diet (in total app...
