New review: milk and health
Milk products are included in dietary recommendations all over the world and are a regular part of many people’s diets. Scientists therefore reviewed existing research on milk and dairy consumption and the different health outcomes, including cardiovascular health, bone health and weight management.
Our way of working
Dairy plays an important role in worldwide nutrient security. We believe that by unleashing science based information on the role of dairy in the diet we can contribute to a better nutritional status for all. How? Through sharing knowledge on dairy, nutrition and health, stimulating scientific debate, and actively engaging with nutrition & health professionals all over the world.

Bone experts publish consensus report on protein intake and bone health
It is known that protein intake contributes to the maintenance and growth of body mass, including muscle mass. But is it also beneficial to our bones? Twelve experts in bone health published a consensus report summarising the most recent insights on protein intake and bone health. One of their main conclusions is that protein contributes to the maintenance of bone mass, provided that calcium intake is adequate.
New meta-analysis: Protein enhances muscle mass during resistance training programs
Protein contributes to growth and maintenance of muscle mass. The effect of protein supplementation when used in conjunction with resistance exercise training (RET) on enhancing muscle mass and strength in athletes has been widely investigated. However various studies have produced conflicting results. Morton et al (2018) performed a meta-analysis to further investigate the effects of protein supplementation during RET in healthy adults.
Maternal Nutrition and Digestive Issues in Paediatric Age Group
On 10th and 11th March 2018 the FrieslandCampina Institute organised a scientific meeting in collaboration with the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia (OGSM) in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). Various scientific experts shared scientific insights in the field of maternal nutrition and digestive issues in the paediatric age.
Measures and metrics of sustainable diets
Designing food patterns that are more sustainable and healthy is more challenging than it first appears. Especially when aspects such as availability, affordability and food culture are also taken into account. How do you determine a more sustainable and healthy diet? Drewnowski (2018) is using linear programming models in his research.
NEW Infographic & Video From Grass to Glass
Milk is the nutritious basis of many dairy products consumed throughout the world. Complete control over the nutritional, quality and safety aspects within the production chain is essential to ensure that all nutrients become available to consumers. This infographic and video explains the production chain of FrieslandCampina.
