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.

This perspective article summarizes the present scientific evidence focused on 1) the gut barrier as an important component of normal gastrointestinal structure and function in human health, 2) currently available modalities to describe the intestinal barrier and quantify its function in humans, and 3) providing possible associations between diet and normal gut barrier function among healthy or at-risk people.
An evidence map of current research activity in this area was created using a newly developed database of dietary fiber intervention studies in humans to identify studies with broad outcomes.
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.
This workshop will address perceptions of sweetness and how that fits into a nutritious diet.
The 11th Vahouny Fiber Symposium, which covers the latest in fiber science, regulation, and policy.
ILSI North America is supporting various sessions at the 2017 Experimental Biology Conference.
This Workshop facilitated an exchange of scientific and technical information with stakeholders involved in selecting science-based indices to use in communicating physiologic effects of carbohydrates in foods.

Sources of dietary folate/folic acid in women of different races in the United States between 2009 and 2012: What is the role of fortified and enriched products?
Abstract Number: 6707
Poster Board Number C88
Presenter: Ray DeVirgiliis, George Washington University
Monday, 24 April
The purpose of this workshop was to facilitate an exchange of scientific and technical information with stakeholders involved in selecting science-based indices to use in communicating physiologic effects of carbohydrates in foods.
The outcomes of this workshop are scientifically based summary statements for use in programs that communicate about carbohydrate quality, with the intent that future programs harmonize approaches by authoritative organizations throughout North America.Read the Workshop Summary Workshop Presentations Introduction
