NU-AGE
 

The 'New dietary strategies addressing the specific needs of elderly population for a healthy ageing in Europe' (NU-AGE) project intends to investigate nutrition as a modulator of inflammageing and other age-related outcomes. It seeks to demonstrate the how to, by dietary means, counteract and/or slow down the process of ageing, including decline of cognitive function, cardiovascular and digestive disease development, reduced bone density, immunity and muscle mass.

Based on the knowledge gained about influences of diet on ageing and its potential to prevent age-related disease, foods designed especially for elderly consumers will be developed and the best ways to communicate dietary recommendations to those over 65 will be explored.
