Betaine has been shown to improve body composition in several animal studies, but this is the first clinical study 58 FOODBUSINESS NEWS ® to demonstrate this benefit in humans. Conducted at the Springfield College Human Performance Laboratory in Massachusetts, the double-blind study compared the effect of betaine supplementation with a placebo. The participants were 18- to 35-year-old men who regularly undertook resistance training. Measurements at the end of the study showed an improvement in body composition in the group that received a daily betaine supplement. Here, lean muscle mass was increased and body fat percentage reduced. In addition, arm size and bench press work capacity increased, and a trend toward improved power was observed. "These results confirm that the addition of betaine to sports performance foods, beverages and dietary supplements can provide differentiating benefits when training," said Stuart Craig, of DuPont Nutrition & Health who coauthored the study. DuPont supplies betaine, namely BetaPower Natural Betaine, which was used for the clinical study. Betaine is currently approved for use in foods, beverages and supplements in North America and supplements in Europe.
