Calories in the context of suggested serving sizes; an obstacle to fighting obesity?
10:50 - 11:05
Science and Evidence: Portion Size
After salt there was sugar, and today the attention has steered on to calories. Should this new area of focus relate to the calorie density of food, or rather calories per serving? Passport Nutrition data shows there is a huge discrepancy among suggested serving sizes, pack sizes and nutrient content in key packaged food and drink categories; this may tamper with consumers’ ‘adequate’ calorie consumption. This presentation investigates this topic further and explores what can be done next to aid the fight against obesity.
