Who would’ve thought that “The Health People” might advocate the consumption of cookies, huh?Ok there’s a slight catch, these aren’t ordinary cookies, they are enriched with CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).
As a result of eating these enriched cookies, researchers found these healthy fatty acids to be present in breast milk at a higher level (46% ~ higher) than those who only consumed normal biscuits.
This doesn’t mean necessarily that all women have been given the green light to consume large amounts of biscuits and hence overdose on saturated fat and sugars.
The study aims to show how CLA supplementation can make its way into the breast milk and therefore benefit the child – I think it’s fair to surmise that
CLA is a group of fatty acids that has potential anti-cancer and antioxidant effects.
The study doesn’t show where you can buy these biscuits though!
Maybe you could get a CLA pill and put it in between two cookies, somewhat like a sandwich?!
Or on the other hand, just get rid of the biscuits and take the supplement by itself – yeah…that makes more sense!
