What’s Brewing in Food Processing Sector?
Research on the role of nutrition in complex non-communicable chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancers, and communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, COVID-19, flu, among others, is gradually increasing in India. However, there is not enough implementation of such research taking place due to lack of facilities, limited data interpretation, less trained workforce etc. Since nutrition is very specific for individual physiology, we must utilise the power of R&D to understand the nutritional requirements of the human body to fight off diseases. As 2022 sets in, we hope for sufficient research and investment in various fields related to food and nutrition for strengthening the healthcare system in India.
