Novel Nutritional Solutions to Combat Malnutrition in the Elderly
We look forward to contributing to the project NUTRIMAL (Novel Nutritional Solutions to Combat Malnutrition in the Elderly). This project, set to start in 2015, brings together major experts to help solve the huge problem of elderly malnutrition, which consequently leads to muscle loss (Sarcopenia). Sarcopenia affects people at all ages and is a major cause for reduced mobility in the over 65 years. This is a major problem as this subpopulation is set to double from 129m (2010) to 224m (2050). The project’s aim is to find new nutritional ingredients that will reduce the loss of skeletal muscle over time.
