Fashionable ingredients: The Facts
Public interest in food and nutrition remains high, but the specific diets, foods and ingredients that attract the most interest are constantly changing. Media coverage of the latest fashions in food and nutrition can sometimes lack detail and critical appraisal of the underpinning science.
Nutrition Bulletin published a Spotlight (April 2019) that provides detailed reviews of the scientific literature on four 'hot' food-based ingredients and their relationships with health: coconut oil (Lockyer 2016), edible insects (Dobermann et al. 2017), nutraceuticals (Spiro & Lockyer 2018) and probiotics (Sanders et al. 2018).
