It's increasingly clear that to improve the population’s diet we need to make it easier for everyone to eat healthily and more sustainably regardless of how much money or time people have, where they live or how health-conscious they are. We must ensure healthier and more sustainable food is easily available, accessible and affordable, and reformulation to improve nutritional content may be part of the solution.
As well as reducing intakes of saturated fat, salt and sugars we need to increase positive ingredients like wholegrains or vegetables and positive nutrients like fibre (for gut health and a healthy gut microbiome) and plant-based proteins (to be more sustainable). But what can we realistically achieve through reformulation without compromising on taste, convenience, satiety or cost?
This British Nutrition Foundation webinar will take a look at the need for reformulation from a public health perspective concentrating on 2 key areas: fibre and plant-based proteins that may help to contribute to the adoption of healthier and more sustainable food choices in the future.
Dr Stacey Lockyer, British Nutrition Foundation:
Pushing the positive: why nutrients to encourage should be considered in reformulation
Prof Catherine Stanton, APC Microbiome Institute:
Increasing Fibre – why is this so important for our health
Prof Andrew Salter, University of Nottingham:
How do we ensure a healthy and sustainable supply of protein for future generations
Dr Ieva Laurie, Tate & Lyle:
Fibre Fortification: a modelling study on fibre & health
This webinar will be of interest if you want to explore more about healthy food offerings, as well if you work in:
- public health
- sustainable diets
- the food industry
It is also suitable for those studying or researching in these areas.
The British Nutrition Foundation is grateful to Tate & Lyle for providing an educational grant towards the success of this webinar. However, the programme has been directed by the Foundation alone, which is committed to producing independent, evidence based science.
