The maker of Nutella, the chocolate-hazelnut spread loved by many Americans, wants a smaller serving size to be listed on its nutrition labels. Ferrero, Nutella's parent company, says that a smaller serving size will reflect how consumers currently use the product, and has been petitioning the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reclassify the spread. Ferrero claims that nowadays Nutella is eaten in smaller amounts as a spread on toast instead of as a topping on ice cream or a filler in cupcakes. According to CNN, the company surveyed over 700 mothers and claims that 60% of consumers now eat Nutella on bread, up fro...

Study: Snacking On Nuts Can Reduce Risk Of Heart Disease, Cancer
LONDON (CBS) – If you’re looking for a healthy snack, nuts might be the answer. A new study from European researchers in the journal BMC Medicine says eating a handful of nuts a day can cut down on several health risks. Data from more than 800,000 people who ate all kinds of nuts, including hazelnuts, walnuts and peanuts, shows they cut their risk of dying from heart disease by nearly 30 percent and cancer by 15 percent. The risk of premature death was also 22 percent lower for people who ate nuts. “It’s quite a substantial effect for such a small amount of food,” study co-author Dagfinn Aune ...

FYI, Almonds Are Not Nuts. And Neither Are A Lot Of Other 'Nuts.'
We all know almonds are a healthy snack and a great dessert ingredient. But get this: almonds are not nuts. They’re seeds of a fruit. More specifically, they’re seeds of the almond fruit, which grows on a tree and is very similar to a peach, botanically speaking. When the almond fruit is ripe, we remove its flesh and shell, then eat the small kernel inside. Check it out: Here’s why almonds are not nuts.  In the botanical world, a nut is a dry, hard-shelled fruit. But as you can see, almonds have a fleshy outer layer. Therefore they’re technically not nuts, but a di...

Mediterranean diet may help counteract age-related declines in memory and thinking skills
This study included only a small fraction (6%) of all the PREDIMED participants. The trial wasn’t designed to look at connections between diet and brain health. And one-quarter of the participants never took the second round of tests. All of this means the results need to be taken with a grain of salt. How might olive oil and nuts help? Extra-virgin olive oil and nuts contain compounds called polyphenols. These substances help quell oxidation and inflammation, which are harmful to blood vessels and the brain. This may explain why diets rich in polyphenols seem to prevent both heart disease and age-related cognitive p...

How black truffles deal with jumpers in their genome
Black truffles, also known as Périgord truffles, have a syrupy sweet flavor and are highly prized in haute cuisine. They are fungi that grow on the roots of oak and hazelnut trees, and are the second most expensive truffle species. The black truffle uses reversible epigenetic processes to regulate its genes, and adapt to changes in its surroundings. The 'methylome' illustrates how the truffle deals with its complex genome's repeating elements and 'jumping genes.' The authors say this may shed light on how traits like aroma and color are controlled. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
