Evidence Of Health-Promoting Effects Of Dairy Products Continues To Grow

September 16, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A study involving 233 metabolically healthy Canadians found an association between higher levels of trans-palmitoleic acid in the blood – an indicator of dairy food consumption – and lower blood pressure in men and women and lower body weight in men. Trans-palmitoleic acid is naturally present in milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, and meat fat but cannot be synthesized by the body. The average individual in the study consumed between one and four portions of dairy a day. Nearly half, however, did not meet Canada's Food Guide recommendations of at least two portions of dairy a day.
