Sustainability research

How do we reduce the ecological footprint of our plate?

In collaboration with the Dutch Dairy Organization (NZO), we have published an article in Nutrition Magazine 1-2017 based on our initial research results.

Introduction:
Eating healthy and sustainable is not as easy as it seems. "Eat less animal and more vegetable" does not necessarily turns one's diet into a more sustainable diet. This article is based on calculations with the Optimeal® program. We looked at which sustainability rules serve their purpose the best

Health central to a sustainable diet

This article was written in collaboration with the Dutch Dairy Organization (NZO) and Wageningen University Research. Published in Nutrition Magazine 2/3-2020.

Introduction:
The scientific preconditions of a more sustainable diet is becoming increasingly visible. One of these is health. But also the price of groceries for consumers should not rise too much. Calculations with Optimeal® provide in-depth knowledge of a healthy, feasible and affordable sustainable diet.

Live tool

During our sustainability research, we developed a tool that makes our results visual. By using the tool, which is shown on the right, the user can experiment with our data 'live'.

The tool displays a diet that meets all dietary recommendations. Shifting a food group shows you how much of the remaining food groups you should be eating to meet all recommendations. The price and CO2 emissions of the new diet are also displayed on the right. This way you can see the impact of changing a diet.
