Immense advances in the life sciences have deepened our understanding of the connection between nutrition and health, revealing that we can effectively improve our health and quality of life by redesigning our diet on a scientific basis. In Nutrition for a Better Life, one of the food industry’s leading experts takes a factual look into the past and future of food and nutrition. As former Nestlé CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe shows, while in the past forty years convenience was the selling point for many industrially produced foods, consumers have now come to demand specifically healthy products. Going forward, it is health that will drive innovation in the industry. Using cutting-edge technology and scientifically based nutrition standards, the food industry will play a decisive role in improving the well-being of entire population groups, offering effective and cost-saving personalized diets that will both prevent and administer to the acute and chronic diseases of the twenty-first century.
