Going Vegan for Weight Loss and Heart Health

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

Can a diet totally devoid of animal protein be healthy for humans who are, by design, omnivores? Common sense would suggest not, but research begs to differ. A new study is just out, attesting to the fact that a stint of vegan eating boosts both heart health and weight loss, and without imposing restrictions on caloric intake. Could the annual January diet craze be in for a vegan overhaul? This would indeed be music to the ears of purveyors of carbohydrate foods, may they be potato growers, bakery manufacturers or noodle bars.

Healthier in just one week

Rarely has a diet come under such sustained and fervent criticism as the vegan diet. Not enough iron, zero vitamin B12, too little protein, lack of variety and, perish the thought, no dairy – surely this can’t be a healthy way to live?

However, plenty of evidence, much of it gleaned from population studies that reach back decades, suggests otherwise. For example, there is the oft-quoted Danish example, where, due to post-WW1 rationing, animal protein, fats and alcohol were severely restricted, forcing the population to subsist largely on potatoes, bread, barley and vegetables. As a result, the country recorded the lowest mortality rate from non-infectious chronic disease (this includes cardiovascular disease) in its entire history.

China and India: The Powerhouses of the Asia Pacific Cocoa Market

Helen ReavellAnalyst Insight by Helen Reavell - Contributing Analyst

Asia Pacific is currently the third largest region for cocoa ingredients (liquor, butter and powder) worldwide after Western Europe and North America; however, it is set to become the second largest region, overtaking North America by 2017, with consumption exceeding 688,000 tonnes. Regional sales are dominated by China, which accounted for 40% of volume sales in 2013, while the second largest market is India, with 11% of volume. Both China and India have seen strong growth in the cocoa ingredients in recent years, with China posting an average annual growth rate of 6% and India 16% over 2008-2103. Similarly, forecast rates are also strong at 5% and 11% over 2013-2018. However, this growth is being driven by quite different consumption patterns in these two countries.

Cocoa ingredients in India, more closely matches that of the worldwide market. Cocoa liquor takes the largest share at 43% (37% worldwide), cocoa butter 29% (33%) and cocoa powder 27% (30%). Meanwhile, China is quite different, with cocoa liquor only accounting for 23% of total cocoa volumes, cocoa butter 17%, but cocoa powder reaching 60%.
