Nutrient Profiling: A tool for answering the nutritious food dilemma?

  • READ ARTICLE

Throughout this Special Report, you will hear more about how current nutrient profiling models are being applied, while originally directed at high-income countries, nutrient profiling models also have the potential to address the needs of LMICs, which suffer from stunting and micronutrient deficiencies – a major and continuing public health burden. The purpose of nutrient profiling models, as illustrated by WHO, is to address such public health concerns. Thus, nutrient profiling models intended for use in LMICs must address all forms of malnutrition. Inadequate intakes of vitamin A, the B vitamins, calcium, iron, iodine, and zinc, and the frequent lack of high-quality protein intakes, together with overweight and obesity, must be considered. Without taking these parameters into account, LMICs will continue to face challenges in adapting and utilizing NP modeling to their contexts. The creation of regional or national criteria for acceptable amounts of critical nutrients in the form of an NP model is a key step towards policy formulation, behavior change strategies, and compliance for LMICs working to address the double burden of malnutrition.
