    It is intended to provide a liquid oral composition and a liquid food composition in which calcium phosphate such as hydroxyapatite or tricalcium phosphate can be stably dispersed and prevented from being precipitated or separated out even in long-term storage. Calcium phosphate mixed with xanthan gum and polyglycerin fatty acid ester can be stably dispersed even in long-term storage and prevented from being precipitated or separated out even when used in liquid oral compositions such as mouthwashes, liquid dentifrices, and oral detergents or in liquid food compositions such as milk, soy milk, yoghurt, and refreshing beverages. In addition, calcium phosphate mixed with xanthan gum and polyglycerin fatty acid ester further supplemented with an amphoteric surfactant can be more effectively prevented from being precipitated or separated out in liquid oral compositions such as mouthwashes, liquid dentifrices, and oral detergents.

    Using NMR/MS based metabonomics and targeted lipidomics approaches the inventors have explored the metabolic phenotypes of aging and longevity in a cohort compromising centenarians, elderly and young adults. The inventors have identified biomarkers for a reduced risk of developing ageing related chronic inflammatory disorders and propose an in vitro method of diagnosing a lifestyle that allows to delay and/or avoid ageing related chronic inflammatory disorders using p-cresol sulphate as biomarker.

    A continuous low temperature food pasteurization system (10) includes a conveyor system (20) for conveying food products (FP) through a pasteurization chamber (40). A pre heater (140) may be located upstream from the pasteurization chamber, and an optional post heater (160) may be located downstream from the pasteurization chamber. A chiller and/or freezer (100) rapidly chills and/or freezes the food product after pasteurization as the conveyor system conveys the food product through the freezer. A control system (250) controls the operation of the pasteurization system to ensure that a desired percentage of pathogenic microorganisms present on the surface and/or within the interior of the food product are killed.
