Trends that are
Metabolomics and personalized nutrition vs.
sophisticated detection methods on residues?
A recent Nestlé study on consumer nutrition trends in
Germany showed that most people would love to
enjoy meals within the family. However, when 1600
people in Germany were asked how often they would do
that, only every second confirmed. Only 39% have breakfast
together, 45% enjoy one warm meal per day. 65% said
that healthy food was important.
However, for those with higher income this desire is
definitely increasing, from 75% to 81% compared to the last
study whereas in people with lower income that figure decreased
from 53 to 49%. Everybody wants fun and is suffering
from lack of time. The solution should be industrialized
snacks for the quick meal and more personalized nutrition
free from Sugar, Lactore, Gluten etc. Trade Fairs like the Vitafoods
in Geneva and the FFFHI (Free From Functional Food
& Health Ingredients) in Barcelona demonstrate that trend.
Other international conferences like the "Metabolomics",
23-26 June, Amsterdam and the 9th International Symposium
on Recent Advances in Food Analysis (RAFA 2019), 5-8 Nov.
Prague, CZ will provide an overview of contemporary trends
in analytical & bioanalytical strategies in food quality and food
safety control and discuss challenges/novel approaches in food
and novel food products. In this issue of eFOOD-Lab International
we look at some of these latest sophisticated methods.
It is somewhat crazy that people very often are concerned with
food safety while the facts demonstrate that food can be generally
considered as safe in this hemisphere. It should be an
interesting development looking at the trend towards personalized
nutrition and the necessities to detect thousands of substances
faster and faster in an automated, digitalized manner.
This time we have interviewed Ralf Löscher, LECO on
new methods. Issue #3-2019 will show an interview with
Ola Elmqvist, Teta Pak on the future of packaging.
I wish you a nice read.
