Conference to debate saturated fat in dairy

Related tags Butter Milk Nutrition

A one-day conference will debate the latest science on milk fat and policy options for reducing – or taxing – the levels of saturated fats on dairy.

A raft of scientific studies have linked saturated fat to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Dairy products are a major source of this fat in the diet – but of other important nutrients too.

The conference, organised by European Dairy Association (EDA) and the Danish Dairy Board (in co-operation with the Danish Agriculture and Food Council) will take place in Brussels on 25th September.

Key topics of discussion will be:

  • The latest science on milk fat
  • The relevance and policy options for saturated fat.
  • The proposed introduction of a saturated fat levy in Denmark.
