  • Dr. Eric Hentges, Director, Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, USDA, provided an update on the reassessment of the Food Guide Pyramid. (health.gov)
  • A reassessment of the Food Guide Pyramid is currently underway to ensure that it reflects the latest standards in nutrition and to increase consumer use of the Pyramid. (health.gov)
  • Human nutrition , process by which substances in food are transformed into body tissues and provide energy for the full range of physical and mental activities that make up human life. (britannica.com)
  • The study of human nutrition is interdisciplinary in character, involving not only physiology , biochemistry, and molecular biology but also fields such as psychology and anthropology , which explore the influence of attitudes, beliefs, preferences, and cultural traditions on food choices. (britannica.com)
  • The utilization of food materials by all living things is described in nutrition , and specific biochemical processes are described in metabolism . (britannica.com)
  • The relatively higher levels of energy in human nutrition are more likely to be measured in kilojoules (1 kilojoule = 10 3 joules) or megajoules (1 megajoule = 10 6 joules). (britannica.com)
  • medical citation needed] Poor nutrition is a chronic problem often linked to poverty, a poor understanding of nutrition and dietary practices, and deficient sanitation and food security. (wikipedia.org)
  • 1992
  • The Food Guide Pyramid, which was introduced in 1992, is the current food guidance at the USDA and is widely recognized. (health.gov)
  • carbohydrates
  • They make up a large part of foods such as rice, noodles, bread, and other grain-based products, but they are not an essential nutrient, meaning a human does not need to eat carbohydrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • This approach is based on the assumption that there are no interactions between foods in a mixture in the intestine, and from a practical view point, such studies with humans are difficult to control with the required accuracy. (wikipedia.org)
  • gram
  • One kilocalorie is equal to 1,000 gram- calories (or small calories), a measure of heat energy. (britannica.com)
  • Beverage alcohol ( ethyl alcoho l) also yields energy-7 kilocalories (29 kilojoules) per gram-although it is not essential in the diet. (britannica.com)
  • tissues
  • In children and pregnant or lactating women the energy requirement includes the energy needs associated with the deposition of tissues or the secretion of milk at rates consistent with good health. (fao.org)
  • grain
  • Grain products have the highest fiber contents, such as crude corn bran (79 g per 100 g) and crude wheat bran (43 g per 100 g), which are ingredients for manufactured foods. (wikipedia.org)
  • higher
  • α-Tocopherol is the main source found in supplements and in the European diet, where the main dietary sources are olive and sunflower oils, while γ-tocopherol is the most common form in the American diet due to a higher intake of soybean and corn oil. (wikipedia.org)
  • ratio
  • The likelihood ratio statistic was used to determine whether the type of breakfast eaten had a significant effect on lunch intake after allowing for sex and weight status. (aappublications.org)
  • bread
  • Living about the turn of the millennium, Aulus Celsus, an ancient Roman doctor, believed in "strong" and "weak" foods (bread for example was strong, as were older animals and vegetables). (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • Around 400 BC, Hippocrates, who recognized and was concerned with obesity, which may have been common in southern Europe at the time, said, "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food. (wikipedia.org)
  • bomb
  • The energy present in food can be determined directly by measuring the output of heat when the food is burned (oxidized) in a bomb calorimeter . (britannica.com)
  • human
  • The human body can be thought of as an engine that releases the energy present in the foods that it digests. (britannica.com)
  • However, the human body is not as efficient as a calorimeter, and some potential energy is lost during digestion and metabolism. (britannica.com)
  • association
  • Diet misreporting can be corrected: confirmation of the association between energy intake and fat-free mass in adolescents. (springer.com)
  • After further adjustment for energy intake and BMI, the association of sugar-sweetened soft drinks with type 2 diabetes persisted (HR 1.18, 95% CI 1.06, 1.32), but the association of artificially sweetened soft drinks became statistically not significant (HR 1.11, 95% CI 0.95, 1.31).
