"A new study from Lund university shows that a harmful substance, the AGE, increases in the storage of milk powder, which can be used in gruel and drinks, writes SvD. AGE is formed when foods with fat and protein is heated with sugars."
"the Trials show that the levels of AGE increases substantially during storage of the mjölkpulvret. After 28 days in 45 degree heat and a humidity of 52 per cent increased tenfold levels. Even at lower temperatures increased the levels, though more slowly."
"the Substance affects the body's cells, and can contribute to inflammation, which in turn is suspected to give rise to various autoimmune diseases."
"One hypothesis is that AGE may have people with type 1 diabetes, which doubled in children in Sweden in the last 20 years. Gruel is common in Sweden, and now directed the light towards mjölkpulvret as a suspected cause."
" We have seen a steady increase of type 1 diabetes and scientists are groping. In the past, it has examined whether it acted on the virus and the gluten, but without succeeding in breaking the development. We now need to go a step further and investigate suspicions that it is the actual torrmjölken that is the reason, " says Mona Landin-Olsson to SvD."
"Yet this is no more than a suspicion, according to the researchers the need to investigate further."
