Study Will Test Whether Vitamin E-Rich Soups In Pregnancy Reduce Child Asthma

September 6, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers at Scotland’s University of Aberdeen are recruiting mothers-to-be for a study to determine whether eating soups bolstered with vitamin E-rich foods can prevent childhood asthma. The three super-soups -- developed with Scottish food manufacturer Baxters Food Group -- nearly double the daily intake of vitamin E (to 15 mg). The soups are made from sundried tomatoes, sunflower oil, beans, lentils and wheat germ. The soups will be tested – three servings a week – among expectant mothers from 12 weeks into their pregnancy through delivery. The study is based on earlier findings that pregnant women whose diet is low in vitamin E have babies more prone to asthma.
