Spain Launches Collaborative Effort To Create Healthier Diets For Elderly Population

March 15, 2011: 07:47 PM EST
As part of the SENIFOOD project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, research organizations and companies are collaborating to develop nutritionally balanced diets and foods targeting a growing aging population. The plan is to create ingredients and diets that will help reduce the incidence of metabolic syndrome, a precursor to diabetes; improve bone, muscle, gastrointestinal, visual and cognitive health; and to reduce neurodegenerative disorders. The issue of elder health is a pressing one in Spain, where older people comprise 17 percent of the population. Involved in the collaboration are functional ingredients companies, food manufacturers, a manager of nursing homes, and 25 technological centers and universities.
