Dietary Fat Quality
Chair: Professor Berthold Koletzko
IUNS Representative: Professor Helmut Heseker
Considerable controversy and confusion persists on what advice on dietary fat intake should be provided. This topic can have an important public health impact. The aims of this Task Force are: to systematically compile and review the existing evidence of health effects of dietary fat and fat quality, starting with a compilation and review of existing systematic reviews and guidelines, and extending where deemed necessary in a systematic review of recently published original data; to draft a position paper that summarizes the evidence and provides conclusions and recommendations, which should be published in the journal of IUNS (Ann Nutr Metab); and to communicate and disseminate findings to researchers, nutrition and health professionals, policy makers, and the public.
