Nutritionism

by Gyorgy Scrinis | 10 February 2015
Category: Films Cinema & DVD
Synopsis
The concept of nutritionism refers to the reductive understanding of nutrients as the key indicators of healthy food - an approach that dominates nutrition science, dietary advice and food marketing. Gyorgy Scrinis argues this ideology has narrowed, and in some cases distorted, our appreciation of food quality, such that even highly processed foods may be perceived as healthy depending on the amount of 'good' or 'bad' nutrients they contain. Investigating the butter versus margarine debate, the battle between low-fat, low-carb, and other weight-loss diets, and the food industry's strategic promotion of nutritionally enhanced foods, he reveals the scientific, social, and economic factors driving our modern fascination with nutrition.
