FAO Dairy Price Index goes up

The FAO Dairy Price Index averaged 216.6 points in July, up 7.6 points (3.6 percent) from June and 74.3 points (52.2 percent) above its value in July 2016. Despite this latest increase, the Index is still 21 percent below its peak reached in February 2014.

International prices of butter, cheese and Whole Milk Powder (WMP) increased, but those of Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP) declined.  Tighter export availabilities pushed butter prices to a new high in July, widening the spread between butter quotations and other dairy products further. While strong buying activity from Asian importers also underpinned cheese and WMP quotations, SMP prices were weighed down by slack demand and prospects of larger releases from the intervention stocks in the EU.

Dairy Should be High Priority in Brexit Negotiations, Says Dairy UK

“It is vitally important that the UK dairy industry is recognised and prioritised during Brexit negotiations”, Dr David Dobbin, Chairman of Dairy UK, said speaking at Dairy UK’s Brexit and Beyond industry seminar in London and at the organisation’s annual dinner.

Dr Dobbin said it is in the national interest for dairy to be given due prominence during the Brexit process. He said: “The importance and relevance of dairy must not be forgotten or traded to the benefit of other sectors.”

Dr Dobbin told delegates that the dairy industry in the UK sees opportunities as well as threats in Brexit but everyone wants stability. He said the UK government and all political decision-makers must ensure that: trading arrangements with the EU without tariff and non-tariff barriers are continued; the relationship with the EU is clarified before negotiating free trade agreements with third countries; there is continued access to skilled and unskilled labour; any review of existing regulations or the introduction of new regulations will not create non-tariff barriers; UK farmers are not disadvantaged compared to their European neighbours.

Study: High dairy product intake good for BMI

The objective of the study by Feeney et al was to examine associations between dairy food intake and metabolic health, identify patterns of dairy food consumption and determine whether dairy dietary patterns are associated with outcomes of metabolic health, in a cross-sectional survey.

A 4-day food diary was used to assess food and beverage consumption, including dairy (defined as milk, cheese, yogurt, cream and butter) in free-living, healthy Irish adults aged 18–90 years.

Higher (total) dairy was associated with lower body mass index, percent body fat, waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio, and lower systolic  and diastolic  blood pressure. Similar trends were observed when milk and yogurt intakes were considered separately. Higher cheese consumption was associated with higher C-peptide.

Research: Designing dairy desserts for weight management

At Universitat Politècnica de València, four researchers have ended a project “Designing dairy desserts for weight management: Structure, physical properties and in vitro gastric digestion”. The report will be published by Food Chemistry, no 4, 2017, but is already availiable on the internet.

There findings suggest that the combination of reducing fat content (to obtain a reduced energy density product) and adding whey protein (to increase satiety capacity) allows obtaining dairy desserts for weight management.
