Food and health
The relationship between diet and health is now widely recognised. Food quality, composition, availability and cost have a direct effect upon the health profile of many communities.
The Openfields library includes materials on how diets, foods and food components affect human health. The scope includes diet composition, functional foods, food supplements and medicinal plants used by consumers, and the provision of evidence to support health claims. Other materials indicate how production methods affect the quality of foods, food supplements and herbal medicines. This includes primary production (agriculture), processing, storage, quality control/standardisation, safety assurance, national policy issues, etc.
