Fermentation specialists, Lallemand provide applied fermentation technical support and share their knowledge of fermentation application, the market needs, and commercialisation of new R&D innovations in the field of microbiology. With representatives all around the country, there’s a rep in every major wine region from the Hunter to Margaret River. Following a recent new partnership deal, Winequip are now the sole distributor for Lallemand biological products in WA, NSW, ACT, QLD, VIC, and TAS. In this blog series, we introduce you to the faces behind the Winequip and Lallemand, so you know who to look to in your part of the wine world. Next up, we meet Winequip Sales Representative for Western Victoria Rebecca Hellweg, a winemaker turned rep who loves being on the open road and is a keen Gridiron player! What is your role with Lallemand? As the Winequip Sales Representative for Western Victoria, my role with Lallemand is to provide product knowledge, insight and support to the clients located within my region. I am constantly looking out for the key products which will allow my clients to get the best results from their grapes, and to produce wines which are reflective of their regional style, and the winemakers individual vison. What do you love about your job? I love being on the road and getting to meet clients on their sites. Every winery is different, and every winemakers end goal is individual. It’s interesting to see how clients utilise the Lallemand tools they have at hand to tell the story of their vintage and their site. It also makes the job easier as Western Victoria (in my opinion) has some of the most beautiful landscapes in Australia. What makes Lallemand unique in your eyes? During my time winemaking, I had seen Lallemand products used worldwide, as they were trusted and reliable. Now on the other side of things, I am constantly impressed by the range of products, but as well as the way in which Lallemand keeps on innovating. Products such as the QTL yeasts are beyond innovative, and have such a useful application for the industry, as winemakers move towards a desire for lower sulphur wines, and cleaner ferments. Lallemand products are unique as they allow our clients to do their job with confidence. How do you think Lallemand’s role has changed in the wine landscape over the years? When I think Lallemand, I think innovation. The company is constantly reacting to the needs of the winemaker. The amount of technical support within Lallemand for us as representatives is amazing, as well as the information which we are able to pass onto our clients. Lallemand has helped to develop the conversation and sharing of ideas within the industry. When you’re not at work, where might we find you? When not at work, you’ll probably find me on Ranger Field, home of the Croydon Rangers Gridiron Club. Want to meet more of the team at Lallemand?

Biomarkers in the teeth of wild orangutans indicate nursing patterns related to food fluctuations in their habitats, which can help guide understanding of breast-feeding evolution in humans, according to a study published today in Science Advances. This work was led by researchers in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and evolutionary biologists at Griffith University in Australia. Breast-feeding is a critical aspect of human development, and the duration of exclusive breast-feeding and timing of introducing solid food to the diet are also important determinants of health in human and other primate populations. Many aspects of breast-feeding, however, remain poorly understood. Orangutan breast-feeding habits have also been difficult to study due to challenges in observing this behavior in their natural environment. To work around these challenges, researchers reconstructed diet histories of wild orangutans by using their teeth as biomarkers. The growth patterns of teeth, which resemble tree rings, allows investigators to determine concentrations of the maternal elements in the infants' teeth over time, which yields information about their nursing and dietary patterns. "Early-life dietary transitions reflect fundamental aspects of primate life, history, and evolution," said Christine Austin, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health and second study author. "By first studying nursing patterns of our primate cousins, we can apply these findings to future studies in humans. This method can be used to reconstruct the diet histories of contemporary humans in order to reliably and accurately study the relationship between infant diet and health outcomes in childhood or later life, as well as inform models of population growth." In this study, the researchers examined levels of the element barium in teeth samples from deceased Sumatran and Bornean orangutans housed in zoological museums. Teeth analyses showed that the orangutans consumed maternal milk exclusively for their first year, as determined by a gradual increase in barium levels over the first 12 months. After the first year, the teeth indicated cycles that alternated between more and less milk consumption, which may occur until eight to nine years of age, a later weaning age than any other primate. This cycling is believed to result from the changing and unpredictable availability of fruit, which leads young orangutans to rely on breast milk for a longer period of time. "The evidence of cyclical multi-year nursing patterns and late weaning ages in orangutans, reported here for the first time, will lead to further studies of how food availability and other environmental factors affect nursing patterns in primates," said Tanya Smith, PhD, Associate Professor at Griffith University and lead study author. "Additional research is needed to determine whether similar breast-feeding patterns help human babies increase resilience to environmental stressors in infancy."

New research presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity (ECO) in Porto, Portugal (17-20 May) shows that rates of weight gain are established by the time women are 18-23 years old. Measuring rates of weight gain at this age could identify women who are likely to become overweight or obese by the time they are 40. Furthermore, women who are divorced, separated or widowed, and those who smoke >10/day are most at risk of becoming overweight or obese. The study is by Professor Wendy Brown, School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences, University of Queensland, Brisbane, QLD, Australia, and colleagues. Progression from healthy weight to overweight or obesity is associated with numerous health problems in young adult women. The aims of this study were to track body mass index (BMI) over 16 years in women who had a healthy BMI in the year 2000, to calculate rates of weight change associated with maintenance and/or change in BMI, and to examine the determinants of these changes, in women who were 18-23 years old in 2000. The study included 4881 women with healthy BMI at baseline, who subsequently remained a healthy weight, or became overweight or obese at 16-year follow-up. These women reported weight, height, health and health behaviours in six surveys of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health between 1996 and 2012. Associations between sociodemographic and behavioural determinants of BMI maintenance and change were estimated using computer modelling. The data showed 59.4% remained in the healthy BMI category, 29.0% transitioned to overweight and 11.6% became obese. Mean rates of weight gain were 0.19 kg/year (for those who remained healthy weight), 0.84 kg/year (for those who became overweight) and 1.74 kg/year (for those who became obese). In adjusted models, women higher education were 50% more likely to remain a healthy weight than those with lower education; those with moderate to-high physical activity were 23-44% more likely respectively to maintain healthy weight than inactive women; and those women who drank up to two standard alcoholic drinks per day were 25% more likely to maintain a healthy weight than those who never or rarely drank. The data also showed women who were separated (separation, divorce or widowhood) were 23% less likely than those who were single to maintain healthy weight; those who smoked more than 10 cigarettes per day were 36% less likely to maintain a healthy weight than those who never smoked and those who used oral contraceptives were 11% less likely to maintain a healthy weight than those that did not. The authors conclude: "Weight gain trajectories appear to be established early in young adulthood and are characterised by distinct and fairly constant rates of weight gain at this life stage. Women with healthy BMI, but with higher than optimal rates of weight gain in their early 20s (more than 200g/year), could be identified by health professionals for assistance with prevention of weight gain, thus helping to stem the progression to overweight and obesity in the population. Women who are separated, divorced or widowed, and smokers, could be a priority target group for early intervention to prevent weight gain."
