Food science can certainly be harnessed to accomplish more than merely expand the plethora of choices affluent consumers sort through on every shopping trip to the grocery store. The application of sophisticated ingredient technology can address hunger, malnutrition and the crippling cost of westernized diets across much of the developing world. But that requires scientific skill coupled with social sensitivity, a rare combination inside most of the food labs and R&D plants I’ve ever visited.
If food scientists and technologists could increase the availability of nutritious, affordable foods that provide essential protein and calories to the billions of people who daily struggle to obtain adequate sustenance, it would be a monumental achievement, an improvement in human well-being that would resonate worldwide.
The road map toward that end is right here in the pages of Lifestyle Foods. The formulations contained herein combine technical precision and commercial scalability.
