Ageing is an inevitable process affecting an increasing proportion of the world’s population due to increasing life expectancy worldwide. Delaying and/or reducing the rate of muscle ageing has been identified as a key strategy to minimise frailty and maintain independence in the elderly, with the goal of maximising quality of life during the golden years.
Changes in our immune system may be responsible for many of the age-related changes we see in our bodies. Nutrition is one way that can support the immune system to guide us on our way to healthy ageing.
An estimated 795 million people worldwide (roughly one in nine) are chronically undernourished, 161 million of which are children. Advances in community-based approaches using ready to use therapeutic foods (RUTFs) are helping address world hunger. RUTFs provide a great opportunity for innovation to improve delivery of vital food and nutrients to struggling populations.
Nutrition plays a critical role in healthy aging, especially for muscle and joint tissues. Keeping these tissues healthy can improve quality of life as we age by helping us maintain mobility and independence.

Food choices and eating habits have changed dramatically around the world over the past fifty years. Our diets have been influenced by a range of factors; technologies in our kitchen, modes of transport supplying our shops, media, government as well as trade and migration.
Both glucose availability and insulin concentrations in the blood determine the rate of glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscles. After endurance or high-intensity exercise, athletes have used up their glycogen reserves.
Obesity is the most common nutritional disorder in the world; 65% of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity are major contributors to mortality.
Breast milk is undoubtedly the best option for infants, but there are times when a mother’s milk is not available. In such cases, infant formula takes the lead and offers a nutrient-packed alternative.
Asia’s ageing population and wide socioeconomic disparities have created a wide range of health concerns for its people. Latest developments and trends suggest that nutritional science and healthy ageing can be promoted through diets.
