Manual on Nutrient Profiling Published in Advances in Nutrition

Prof Adam Drewnowski together with Sight and Life’s Breda Gavin-Smith and Daniel Amanquah, created and wrote Perspective: How to Develop Nutrient Profiling Models Intended for Global Use: A Manual.


The initial goal of most NP models was to prevent obesity in high-income countries by penalizing energy-dense foods. New NP models intended for LMIC use need to address the still prevalent vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Assuming access to nutrient composition data, the development of such models can follow already established principles and guidelines.


The manual is a guide for developing a nutrient profile model and shares a case study on Obaasima, a quality seal used in Ghana. Read the full manual here.
