Scientific Review Paper 2019

Scientific Review Paper on “Consumption Patterns of Sweetened Condensed Milk (SCM) in Indonesian Young Child Diet and Its Potential Nutritional Health Consequences”

The Foundation has finalized the scientific review paper titled “Consumption patterns of sweetened condensed milk in Indonesian young child diet and its potential nutritional health consequences” and now in the final process to be published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition (APJCN).

This paper focused on limited nutritional value and high sugar content, sweetened condensed milk (SCM) that should not be administered to young children (1-3 years old) with the goal of promoting their growth and development. However, such false practice has been reported in mostly urban studies among the underprivileged population. Conclusive scientific evidence is also still lacking regarding the health risks of long-term SCM consumption by young Indonesian children at early ages, as no study has focused on this specific topic.

Scientific Review Paper on “The Consumption of Sugar Sweetened Beverages (SSB) and its Implications on Health Outcomes in Indonesia”

At the same time, the Foundation set up a special committee, to perform a scientific review on “The Consumption of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages (SSB) and its Implications on Health Outcomes in Indonesia”. This activity is in line with the growing concern on the increasing consumption of SSB among the mainstream Indonesians, which, to some extent, contributes to the escalating incidence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

Scientific Review Paper on “Paradigm Shift in Nutritional Anemia: Reviewing Its Complexities for the Future Policy and Strategic Action in Indonesia”

Another scientific alignment, the Foundation has also been made by commencing a review process on specific issue, nutritional anemia. The Foundation considered that comprehensive review on nutritional anemia is timely and pertinent in Indonesia. Nutritional anemia and stunting may overlap significantly, and nutritional anemia is strongly related with infectious diseases, which are important determinant of stunting in developing countries like Indonesia. Together with Scientific Members, we started the review process of nutritional anemia, titled ‘Paradigm shift in nutritional anemia: revisiting its complexities for the future policy and strategic actions in Indonesia’.
