  • Frontiers in Agricultural Sustainability: Studying the Protein Supply Chain to Improve Dietary Quality

    Thursday, December 12, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science

    Population growth and changes in dietary practices globally have led to a tremendous rise in the demand for animal-source foods. While consuming the required amount of protein is fundamental to human health, protein needs can be met in many ways with animal or plant-source foods. Increased consumption of meat and other animal source foods worldwide is also connected to non-communicable diseases (NCDs), excessive individual intake, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and overutilization of water. Health and environment concerns exist because of the practices in livestock rearing, processing pre-packaged meat, and distribution. This conference will explore sustainable protein innovations in food science and programming that are aimed at producing the required quality and quantity of protein to consumers worldwide.
