Why is this research important?
Carbohydrates are an important source of energy and nutrients in the food supply. The committee focuses its work on understanding sugar, fiber, and carbohydrate quality as they relate to human health.

The purpose of this study was to systematically review guidelines on sugar intake and assess consistency of recommendations, methodological quality of guidelines, and the quality of evidence supporting each recommendation.
This paper summarizes the rationale, methodology, and resulting database listing studies testing fiber and physiological health outcomes iden- tified by experts at the Ninth Vahouny Conference.
Relationships among dietary sugars and a variety of chronic diseases have spawned interest in investigating the metabolic effects of dietary sugars. An approach developed by the AHRQ for assessing Future Research Needs was implemented.
This paper examined the effect of different amounts and forms of dietary fructose on the incidence or prevalence of NAFLD and indexes of liver health in humans.

Dietary Sugar Intake: Systematic Review of Public Health Guidelines and their Recommendations
Work sponsored by the ILSI North America Technical Committee on Carbohydrates was presented during this session.
ILSI North America sponsored multiple presentations: “Sodium to Potassium Ratio and Food Choices of U.S. Adults”, “Sugars and Health: Applying Evidence Mapping Methods to Assess the Evidence”, and “Low-Calorie Sweeteners and Body Weight and Composition.”
The session titled “A Framework for Determining the Physiological Benefits of Fiber” was sponsored by the ILSI North America Technical Committee on Carbohydrates.
