Published

By

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Mar 4 (ANI): Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Thursday announced the launch of a Covid-19 testing and vaccine management software solution to streamline every stage of the journey, enabling more individuals to return to normal life experiences.
The product leverages artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as the company’s network of technology partners.
TCS said the suite transforms all five stages of testing and vaccination journeys: research and manufacture, allocate and transport, store and distribute, schedule and administer, and monitor and re-open.
“It enables ecosystem participants at each of these stages to seamlessly share critical information among themselves while complying with privacy and consent regulations, and to scale up their operations so that communities receive the required quantities of tests and vaccines.”
Debashis Ghosh, Business Group Head for life sciences, healthcare and public sector, said the TCS suite of Covid-19 testing and vaccine management solutions is built to enable transparency, ease of access and equity that will collectively accelerate a return to normalcy.
“The pandemic is changing our world in many ways, driving stakeholder collaboration across industries that share a commitment to getting testing and vaccines to everyone,” he said.
In designing its new solution suite, TCS emulated the example of successful retailers and other consumer-centric enterprises to adopt their proven, people-centric approach to optimise testing and vaccination ecosystems.
Besides, given the urgency of the problem, re-purposing proven use cases from other consumer-facing industries helped speed up the design of end-to-end solution, said TCS. (ANI)

California Walnuts launches global marketing initiative with coordinated “Power of 3” events across the globe

Published

on

By

New Delhi [India], March 3 (ANI/NewsVoir): The California Walnut Commission announced today the second annual “Power of 3” global marketing campaign, which builds on the successful 2020 campaign. “Power of 3” will launch on March 3rd with a first-ever global event celebrated in the USA, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the Middle East to showcase how they like to get their daily handful of walnuts.
The Power of 3:
Launches March, the 3rd month of the year.
Emphasizes the rich essential plant-based omega-3 ALA content of walnuts (2.5 grams/28 grams).
Encourages a handful a day (28 grams) as a simple way to improve overall nutrition.
This campaign is a fun and engaging way to build on one of California walnuts’ core benefits as the only nut that is a rich source of plant-based omega-3 ALA (2.5 grams/28 grams). ALA is an essential nutrient needed by the human body that can only be provided through the diet and has been associated with benefits for heart health, brain health and healthy ageing.
28 grams serving of walnuts provides plant-based protein (4 grams), fibre (2 grams) and is a good source of magnesium. Walnuts are also a good source of vitamin B6 (0.2 mg/28 grams) and an excellent source of copper (0.45 mg/28 grams) and manganese (0.1 mg/28 grams) all of which contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.
“There was tremendous excitement around the globe for the Power of 3 campaign last year and we are thrilled to bring it back on an even bigger scale in 2021,” shares Pamela Graviet, Senior Marketing Director, International, for the California Walnut Commission. “This campaign makes it simple for consumers to remember just how easily they can improve their overall diet with a handful of walnuts.”
The campaign will employ a variety of communications tools, including a video that is a core component of the campaign and will be used across all markets. Recipes, developed by influencers in each country, will be shared across the globe providing inspiration to consumers.
Other elements will vary by market including digital and social media, blog posts, sweepstakes, influencer programs, recipe tips and tricks, easy recipes, instore promotions, advertisements and more to generate awareness that a handful of California walnuts is a powerful addition to the diet.
The Science behind Plant-Based Omega-3 ALA
All omega-3s provide health benefits, so it’s important to get these good fats from a variety of sources. As the only nut significantly high in omega-3 ALA (2.5 grams/28 grams), one of the easiest ways to get more ALA into your diet is to start with walnuts.
ALA and Heart Health
A study from Advances in Nutrition found that ALA may help improve heart health just as we have seen in studies focused on EPA and DHA.[1] The literature review provided evidence showing the potentially beneficial role ALA may have in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart attack.
According to a clinical trial published in The Journal of Nutrition, eating a diet rich in omega-3 ALA, from foods like walnuts, may help to lower the risk of heart disease through anti-inflammatory effects.[2] Given the current promising data, there is a need for well-controlled clinical trials to clarify the effects of ALA on risk for cardiovascular disease and to determine the recommended amount of ALA to consume for heart health benefits.
ALA and Brain Health
A review study from Progress in Lipid Research assessed the tissue levels of omega-3 DHA formed from ALA.[3] They reported several important findings. The first was that ALA leads to the synthesis of EPA in some cases, and in particular, may contribute to DHA levels in the brain. Evidence from a variety of studies suggests dietary ALA may be able to fulfil the human requirement for DHA in the body when higher levels of ALA (at least 1.2 grams) are consumed.
Assessing the synthesis of EPA and DHA from ALA in humans is limited to blood level measurements. The takeaway from this study is that through its conversion process, ALA may play a role in maintaining DHA levels in important issues such as the brain. More research is needed to fully understand the effect of this process on the body.
ALA and Healthy Aging
A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (2020) looked at regular consumption of foods rich in marine or plant-based omega-3s and the risk of death among individuals who have suffered a heart attack.[4] In addition, research from one of the largest clinical trials looking at the benefits of a Mediterranean diet suggested older Spanish individuals (ages 55-80) with a high cardiac risk who supplemented a high fish diet with dietary ALA saw a reduced risk of all-cause mortality.[5] Specifically, study participants who consumed at least 0.7 per cent of their daily calorie intake from ALA had a 28 per cent reduced risk of all-cause mortality.
California Walnut Commission
The California Walnut Commission (CWC) was established in 1987 to represent the walnut growers and handlers of California and is funded by mandatory assessments of the growers. The Commission is an agency of the State of California that works in concurrence with the Secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and is mainly involved in health research on the consumption of walnuts and export market development activities.
