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.
FrieslandCampina Institute provides nutrition and health professionals scientific information, accredited education programs, round table debates on scientific topics and practical tools on a wide variety of nutrition and health topics, ranging from general health in all stages of life to the nutritional composition of milk and dairy products. Our communications and educational tools are of a high scientific quality to provide nutrition and health professionals the best information and educational tools as possible, and to be a credible partner for them.
Unleashing science based information
Being credible is very important for the FrieslandCampina Institute. We have therefore developed an internal procedure for selecting, developing and publishing content.
* In limited cases we provide nutrition and health professionals nutritional information on FrieslandCampina products. A current example is a product overview of Vifit Sport that is available via FrieslandCampina Institute in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Belgium.
New scientific insights
How do we deal with new scientific insights? As a starting point for developing new communications and educational tools we check the availability of meta-analyses, reviews and randomized controlled trials on a certain nutrition & health topic. New scientific insights that have recently been published are often not reviewed or included in a meta-analysis yet, but could be interesting and relevant to share with nutrition and health professionals. After a comprehensive check by the FrieslandCampina Institute and FrieslandCampina Research & Development experts we decide if we will incorporate new scientific insights in our communications and educational tools. Quality of the research methodology and type of research (randomized controlled trial/ cohort studies / clinical trials) are, amongst others, taken into consideration during this decision process. By publishing new scientific insights we always mention that it is about a new insight and compare the findings with current scientific consensus.
FrieslandCampina Institute aims to be a credible partner for nutrition and health professionals. If you have any suggestions or comments on our communications and educational tools, we would appreciate your feedback by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
