Environmental and Economic Effects of Changing to Shelf-Stable Dairy or Soy Milk for the Breakfast in the Classroom Program
TLDR
Replacing conventional milk with shelf-stable dairy or soy milk could substantially reduce waste and concomitant GHGE in BIC; switching to shelf- stable dairy has low net costs. Expand
Diets containing the highest levels of dairy products are associated with greater eutrophication potential but higher nutrient intakes and lower financial cost in the United Kingdom
TLDR
Diets with the highest dairy content had higher nutrient composition, better diet quality, were associated with lower BP and financial cost, but with higher eutrophication potential. Expand
Balancing virtual land imports by a shift in the diet. Using a land balance approach to assess the sustainability of food consumption. Germany as an example
TLDR
It is shown that a reduction of avoidable food losses/wastage would not be sufficient to level out the virtual land balance of the average nutrition in Germany and argued that a dietary shift resulting in a zero land balance is within reach. Expand
Environmental impacts of dietary recommendations and dietary styles: Germany as an example.
TLDR
Analysis of the environmental impacts of nutrition in Germany in the year 2006 finds that impact changes resulting from food wastage were lower and mainly contrarian, which could be explained by higher food wastages in 2006 compared to 1985-1989. Expand
Truthful, Misguiding Labels: The Implications of Labeling Production Processes rather than their Outcomes
Using a best-worst ranking exercise we compare the inferences made by consumers regarding the nutritional value and healthiness of fluid milk and soymilk beverages under several combinations of threeExpand
Nutrient density of beverages in relation to climate impact
TLDR
This study is the first to estimate the composite nutrient density, expressed as percentage of Nordic Nutrition Recommendations (NNR) for 21 essential nutrients, in relation to cost in GHG emissions of the production from a life cycle perspective, expressed in grams of CO2-equivalents using an index called the Nutrient Density to Climate Impact (NDCI) index.
