Special Issue in Nutrients: Potential Health Benefits of Dietary Algae
The current evidence base highlights the importance of inclusion of whole-grain foods as part of healthy dietary template in order to reduce the risk of many non-communicable diseases. However, dietary data from many countries around the world suggest that most people are not consuming whole grains to a level that might benefit health. The evidence supporting specific health benefits of certain types of whole grains is more compelling than that for others.
The current Special Issue aims to bring together recent reviews and cutting-edge original papers in the field to address current gaps in the evidence base. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Studies evaluating the putative mechanistic actions of whole grains.
- Acute or long-term studies evaluating the impact of whole grain consumption on markers of health.
- Novel evidence from population-based studies on the association of whole grain intake with health.
- Systematic reviews or meta-analyses that consider the evidence base linking whole grains to health or disease.
- Review articles or position papers in new areas of whole grain-related research.
