RESEARCH Identification of “Sustainable foods” across food groups • Sustainable foods were identified as those meeting three sustainability criteria: • Greenhouse gas emissions < overall median • SAIN:LIM > overall median • Price (per kg or per kcal) < overall median Masset G, et al. J Acad Nutr Diet. 2014;114(6).
RESEARCH Sustainability criteria across food groups Median, overall median across all foods; GHGE, Greenhouse gas emissions; SAIN:LIM, indicator of nutritional quality for foods, based on the SAIN:LIM nutrient profile model Sustainable foods were identified as those meeting the three sustainability criteria (using either price/kg or /kcal) Masset G, et al. J Acad Nutr Diet. 2014;114(6).
