1s2: Healthy and sustainable diets: providing nutrition, not only nutrients
The primary purpose for the food system is abundantly clear: providing healthy diets to a world population within planetary boundaries. However, the routes towards this goal are less clear and heavily debated. Within this context, replacing animal-based products with plant-based products is often advocated, but such recommendations are often made on the reductionist consideration of animal-based products as only protein source, and failing to consider the broader context of nutrients and nutrition provided by food products. Therefore, product-for-product replacement based on a single nutrient may lead to further impact in the diet, leading to nutrient deficiencies.Â Â
