Healthy food options for people at risk of poverty

1 Feb 2012

Living on the poverty line is not only associated with poor economy, but with other problems such as nutrition-related illnesses. This is the area in which the new European Commission-funded project CHANCE (“Low cost technologies and traditional ingredients for the production of affordable, nutritionally correct foods improving health in population groups at risk of poverty”) wants to make a difference. Together, researchers and industry partners will develop appealing and affordable food products that can help to prevent nutritional problems in European population groups at risk of poverty.
