Special Issue "Dairy Products and Human Health"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2016).
Dairy foods, including milk, cheese and yogurt, are complex foods that make significant nutrient contributions to the human diet. The bioactive components contained in dairy foods interact with one another and the human body through multiple interconnected processes. Dairy consumption is associated with health, and despite concerns that full-fat dairy products contain saturated fat, recent meta-analyses indicate that dairy consumption is neutral or beneficial for weight management, coronary heart disease, type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and most cancers. Globally, dairy foods are recommended as part of an overall healthy dietary pattern. In developed countries, dairy foods present a safe, affordable, and sustainable source of high-quality nutrition. Given the diversity of dairy products with differing compositions available on the market, it is difficult to reach a conclusion on the impact of any one dairy food on human health outcomes. The available body of evidence indicates that dairy foods play an important role in a balanced diet and are associated with good health.
