DSM Study Points To Importance Of Adequate Intake Of Vitamin E
DSM has published a new paper to further examine vitamin E function and requirements in relation to polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).

The aim of the manuscript, which is published in the British Journal of Nutrition, is to review the published evidence on the function and requirements of α-tocopherol in relation to the amount of PUFAs in the human diet. It argues that vitamin E requirement will increase with a rise in PUFA consumption and with the degree of unsaturation of the PUFA in the diet. High intake of PUFAs accompanied by a very low intake of vitamin E may lead to symptoms of vitamin E deficiency.

Vitamin E (α-tocopherol) is recognized as a key essential lipophilic antioxidant in humans, and plays a key role in protecting lipoproteins and cellular and intracellular membranes from damage. The paper highlights that the presence of vitamin E is of key importance in cellular membranes rich in highly unsaturated fatty acids such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA). It has been shown that when vitamin E accumulates in DHA-rich, rather unstructured domains, it stabilizes the membrane and protects DHA from oxidative damage.

Current daily vitamin E intakes are below recommended levels in more than 90% of North Americans as well as in some European countries[3]. To quantify the vitamin E need, a basal vitamin E level plus an additional vitamin E requirement for dietary PUFAs is often considered. PUFAs are involved in a wide range of processes that are related to physical and mental health in humans, including brain and visual functioning throughout the life course.

“The ratio of vitamin E to PUFA in the human diet is critical and requires deeper examination,” says Dr Daniel Raederstorff, principal scientist, DSM Nutritional Products, Human Nutrition & Health. “However, so far, there has been no consensus on the exact vitamin E to PUFA ratio to determine the vitamin requirement, as it might not be applicable to all types of diet and health status.”

The published human data for a diet with an average content of PUFAs indicates that the additional vitamin E requirement ranges from 0.4 to 0.6 mg RRR-α-tocopherol/g of PUFA in the diet. Using the proposed average of 0.5 mg, the estimated requirement for vitamin E varied from 12 to 20 mg/day for a typical range of dietary PUFA intake.

“Even if more research is needed to precisely define the vitamin E requirement in humans, it is important in view of the critical interactions between vitamin E and PUFAs to ensure adequate intake,” adds Professor Manfred Eggersdorfer, Senior Vice President, Nutrition, Science & Advocacy at DSM and Professor for Healthy Ageing at Groningen University.

DSM has partnered with a number of leading scientific experts to launch a series of webinars on the latest science on vitamin E and benefits to human health, such as combating non-alcoholic fatty liver. To access the presentations, please visit www.brighttalk.com/channel/12499.

New Study To Assess Role Of Vitamin E In Treating Common Liver Conditions
DSM welcomes a new paper published in Nutrition that further examines the beneficial effect of vitamin E on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), including non-alcoholic steatohepatisis (NASH).

The aim of the meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy of vitamin E on improving liver function. It was concluded that vitamin E had significant results and there were obvious reductions in steatosis, inflammation and fibrosis in NASH adult patients, compared to the control treatment.

NAFLD, which encompasses a wide spectrum of disorders, has become a major health issue, as well as the most common liver disease throughout the world. Its prevalence is estimated at 20-30% of the general population, and as high as 70-80% in obese persons. The histologic pattern of NAFLD can progress to NASH, liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and also hepatocellular carcinoma. Antioxidant therapy in the form of vitamin E has been considered to have beneficial effects in the management of NASH, but further work was required to fully understand the data. This analysis has a potentially major impact on public health because non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is also rated as risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes type 2 and chronic kidney disease.

Vitamin E is often used in the treatment of NAFLD/NASH; however, the magnitude of response associated with vitamin E in improving liver function and histology in NAFLD/NASH has not been quantified systematically. In order to circumvent potential inaccuracies, very strict inclusion and exclusion criteria were set for the present study, and the list of relevant publications included in the meta-analysis was narrowed down to only five. The meta-analysis concluded that vitamin E therapy can result in decreased levels of liver damage related to hepatitis and cirrhosis in children and adults with NAFLD and NASH. Vitamin E therapy reduced significantly aspartate transaminase, alanine aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase – key liver enzymes which are elevated in people with NAFLD and NASH – and was also shown to reduce steatosis, lobular inflammation, and even hepatocellular ballooning in the liver. The authors conclude that vitamin E significantly improved liver function.

“This meta-analysis will assist the medical community in better assessing the benefits of vitamin E in treating NAFLD/NASH, which could be used to help establish more accurate clinical guidelines for practitioners,” comments Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer, Senior Vice President, Nutrition Science & Advocacy, DSM, and Professor for Healthy Ageing at University Medical Center Groningen.

Devro Report 5% Sales Increase In H1
Devro, the manufacturer of collagen products for the food industry has seen a 5% sales increase in H1 it reported today.

Devro's operating profit before exceptional items was ahead of last year by £1.5 million (+11%), and ahead by £2.6 million, for the first six months.

Strategic highlights include:
· Sales growth underpinned by strong market demand for high quality products
· Three year programme to transform Devro's manufacturing footprint is progressing to plan
o Investment projects for new plants in USA and China on track to commence production in 2016
o Final phase of restructuring of operations in Scotland and Australia completed during the first quarter
o Restructuring actions now delivering cost reductions and are on track to contribute £5 million to operating profit for the year as expected
· Agreement was reached in July 2015 to acquire PV Industries, a manufacturer of collagen gel products, providing Devro access to a strong technical skills base together with an innovative and developing product portfolio

Peter Page, Chief Executive of Devro, commented: "Sales volumes have continued to grow in several important markets and prices remain firm. We have made good progress in transforming our manufacturing facilities to support future growth and manage costs, with restructuring completed and the major investment projects on track for completion in 2016. Market demand is strong, input costs are stable and productivity improving, giving confidence for the future."

Devro reported that sales volumes increased by 5% in the first half, building on a strong first quarter. Volumes were particularly strong in China, Japan and South East Asia and continued to grow steadily in North America, partially offset by lower volumes in Russia and Latin America. Total revenue increased by 5% on a constant currency basis compared with the prior year, and by 3% on a reported basis.

The three year transformation programme, which will add capacity, align products with market opportunities and reduce unit costs will be completed in 2016 as expected.

The restructuring of operations in Scotland and Australia has now been completed. In Scotland the decommissioning of older, less efficient technology was completed at the end of the first quarter and in Australia the outsourcing of the hide preparation operations was completed during the first quarter. Together these restructuring actions are on track to deliver the expected annual cost reductions of £5 million in 2015.

The major investment projects to establish new plants in the USA and China are advancing well and remain on track to commence production in 2016. Together, these projects involve a capital investment of £100 million, which has increased slightly as the specifications for the new plants have been refined. As previously announced, lower production costs in the USA will yield savings from mid 2016 and the additional capacity for supplying the growing market in China will enhance profits from 2017.

Exceptional costs associated with these major projects were £4 million in the first half of 2015 and are expected to increase to between £16 million and £18 million for the full year. The increase in costs in the second half reflects the start of commissioning in the USA and the build-up of the China team for the new factory. Further, but lower, exceptional items are expected in 2016 as the new plants are completed and commercial production commences.

As announced on 10 July 2015 Devro entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the share capital of PV Industries, a leading manufacturer of collagen gel products for the meat processing industry, providing Devro access to a strong technical skills base together with an innovative and developing product portfolio.

The consideration payable is equivalent to €12.5 million on a debt-free basis, with an additional payment of up to €1 million under an earn-out arrangement. Completion of the acquisition is conditional upon clearance by the authorities in certain EU jurisdictions.
