The worldwide overweight and obesity epidemic, and weight-related health complications such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, have become critical healthcare issues in both developed and developing economies.

Much of the research focus to date has been on strategies to help people lose weight. However, very little is known about why certain people are resistant to weight gain in the first place. Understanding the biological mechanisms that underlie this resistance to weight gain can help in providing solutions that work on long-term weight and health maintenance.

Indeed, novel insights on metabolic differences in humans might come from studying very lean people, a state called Constitutional Thinness (CT). CT individuals eat normally but exhibit a natural resistance to weight gain.

Nestlé Research scientists, along with clinical researchers from the Clinical Hospital at the University of St-Etienne, in France, identified the molecular aspects underlying the low body weight and fat of CT individuals.

A new study has found that the Crohn’s Disease Exclusion Diet (CDED), a novel whole-food based dietary approach, combined with Modulen IBD, a Nestlé Health Science nutritional supplement for partial enteral nutrition (PEN), is effective for the management of Crohn’s disease.

There is no cure for Crohn’s disease- a chronic condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system or gut. Most patients typically rely on anti-inflammatory drugs and surgical interventions to manage their symptoms, which can be expensive, for both the patient and health care providers. However, a randomized control trial, has shown that a nutrition-based approach, combining CDED and Modulen IBD is effective for the management and remission of Crohn’s disease.

Nestlé Health Science leveraged the results of the study to create ModuLife, a platform to support dietary management for patients with Crohn’s disease. Through ModuLife, patients benefit from the essential nutrients of Modulen IBD, while also enjoying whole foods and using an online platform to personalize and manage their diet through access to recipes and meals plans, diet tracking adherence, as well as guidance from CDED specialists.

Because ModuLife is physician-supervised, patients and their healthcare providers can easily collaborate to ensure that patients receive ongoing support and maintain habits that prolong the remission of their disease.

"ModuLife is a paradigm change for how Crohn’s disease patients and healthcare providers manage the disease," said Greg Behar,

KitKat

Nestlé has announced it has created a unique chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit, using the beans and pulp as the only ingredients and therefore not adding any refined sugar.

Nestlé plans to introduce the first product in Japan in the autumn of this year through its KitKat Chocolatory. Further products in other countries will follow next year, through some of Nestlé’s most popular confectionery brands.

Nestlé has developed a natural approach, which allows it to extract the pulp and use it in chocolate with no compromise on taste, texture and quality.

Until now chocolate has been made with the addition of refined sugars. This patented innovation delivers a great tasting chocolate using only one ingredient – the cocoa fruit.

Patrice Bula, Head of Strategic Business Units, Marketing and Sales at Nestlé, said: "We’re proud to bring chocolate lovers a new chocolate made entirely from the cocoa fruit without adding refined sugar. This is a real innovation which uses the natural sweetness of the cocoa pulp to provide a pure, novel chocolate experience."

The cocoa fruit contains cocoa beans and cocoa pulp. The pulp surrounds the beans, it is soft, sweet and white in colour. Some of the pulp is used in the fermentation of the cocoa beans after they are harvested, but a significant proportion is usually removed and the value is lost. Until now it has not been used as an ingredient to naturally sweeten chocolate.

With the announcement today, Nestlé reaffirms its leadership in the confectionery category by driving innovation and creating new, natural and exciting products. Nestlé was the first to bring Ruby chocolate to market in 2018 with KitKat, first in Japan and then across Europe.

YES! snack bars

Nestlé has announced today the launch of its YES! snack bars in a new recyclable paper wrapper. In a breakthrough innovation, for the first time a confectionery bar has been packaged in paper using a high-speed flow wrap technology.

This launch has unlocked the potential for recyclable paper packaging to be widely used in the confectionery industry. Up until now, high-speed production of shelf-stable snacks was only achieved using plastic films and laminates. Now paper can be used at large scale while guaranteeing product quality and freshness over the entire shelf life.

This paper wrapper is a further step in Nestlé’s commitment to make all its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. The wrapper is widely recycled in the countries where it will be available. The paper is from sustainable sources, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

Patrice Bula, Head of Strategic Business Units, Marketing and Sales at Nestlé, said: "Consumers are looking for more natural and sustainable options when they choose a snack, both in terms of ingredients and packaging. Our YES! bars are made with wholesome ingredients that celebrate and care for Nature's diversity. We are now relaunching them carefully wrapped in paper, making the packaging easy to recycle and avoiding plastic waste."

YES! snack bars are 'tasty by nature' with wholesome ingredients such as fruit, vegetables and nuts. Among others, flavors include Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt & Almond; Dark Chocolate, Banana & Pecan; and Raspberry & Chia Seeds.

Each YES! nut bar is vegetarian, high in fiber, and a source of protein. The fruit and vegetable bars are vegan, gluten free, lactose free, high in fiber, have no added sugar and contribute to one of your five a day.

With the new paper wrapper and a wider range of flavours, YES! is now being launched in more countries. It will now be available in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxemburg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and the United Kingdom. More countries in Europe and beyond will follow soon.

Nestlé Purina scientists have demonstrated a proactive way to significantly reduce the active levels of the major cat allergen, Fel d1, at its source in cats’ saliva.

Fel d1 is an allergen produced by all cats – regardless of breed, age, hair length, hair color, sex, or body weight. Produced primarily in cats’ salivary and sebaceous glands, Fel d1 is transferred to a cat’s hair and skin during grooming, then dispersed in the environment via hair and dried skin flakes.

As many as one in five adults worldwide are sensitized to cat allergens, with up to 95 percent of reactions caused by Fel d1. People often manage the allergens by limiting or avoiding exposure to cats.

In research published in , Nestlé Purina scientists discovered how to safely neutralize Fel d1 in hair and dander by incorporating an egg product ingredient containing anti-Fel d1 antibodies into a cat’s diet. This ultimately will reduce active Fel d1 levels in the environment while also maintaining normal allergen production by the cat, without affecting the cat’s overall physiology.

breastfeeding mother

Nestlé announced today the launch of MATERNA Opti-Lac, a probiotic solution for lactating mothers, to help them reduce the risk of breast pain and mastitis – a painful inflammatory condition of the breast – during breastfeeding.

MATERNA Opti-Lac is a food supplement that contains a patented unique probiotic strain L. fermentum LC40, naturally found in breastmilk of healthy mums to support breast health.

MATERNA Opti-Lac is being launched first in Hong Kong with several markets to follow in the coming months globally. The hard gel capsules should be taken daily from the start of breastfeeding. Products will be available in pharmacies, drugstores, baby stores, retail shops and hospitals.

Thierry Philardeau, Head of Nutrition Strategic Business Unit, said: ‘’Maternal and infant nutrition are equally important in the first 1000 days of life. We offer high-quality, nutritionally balanced and science-based products to mothers and babies during this period. With MATERNA Opti-Lac, we are helping mothers to continue breastfeeding and offer their babies a solid foundation for life. It is a privilege to accompany many millions of mothers on this journey.’’

Breastmilk is the ideal nutrition for babies. This is why Nestlé promotes, protects and supports World Health Organization’s recommendation of six months exclusive breastfeeding, followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with sustained breastfeeding up to two years of age and beyond.

During breastfeeding, problems such as breast pain or mastitis can leave mums feeling so unwell that they often stop breastfeeding. Mastitis affects up to 1 in 3 mums especially in the first 3 months of breastfeeding.

Research has shown that L. fermentum LC40 may be an effective way to help mums reduce the risk of breast pain and mastitis while allowing them to continue breastfeeding.

Nestlé has been active in developing science-based products and services that support pregnant or breastfeeding mothers and their infants. Through cutting-edge research initiatives such as (Lactation for Infant Feeding Expertise), the company is better equipped to understand human milk composition and its association with maternal nutritional status and infant health.

Last year the company launched MATERNA G-Balance, a new nutritional solution for pregnant women to help prevent gestational diabetes. With the introduction of MATERNA Opti-Lac, Nestlé is strengthening its portfolio, underlining its commitment to support optimal nutrition for mothers and babies during the first 1000 days of life.
