Article: Nutritionists Comment on ASN Processed Food Statement

Many nutrition experts contacted byMedPage Today lamented the statement’s lack of distinction between minimally and highly processed foods.

“At the extreme, these are foods that all but glow in the dark,” said David Katz, MD, MPH, of Yale’s Prevention Research Center. “On the other hand, cooking, freezing, drying, and fermenting are also forms of ‘processing,’ making grilled salmon, frozen peas, dried figs, and organic plain yogurt ‘processed foods’ too. So much depends on just what we mean.”

Andy Bellatti, MS, RD, a nutritionist in Las Vegas, said it was “disappointing to see that vital information like the extent to which a food is processed is considered irrelevant by the authors. A homemade batch of hummus is literally processed, but it is light years away from a bowl of Lucky Charms. No health advocate is worried about Americans eating frozen fruit or baby carrots.”

“Given the standard American diet,” Bellatti added, “which is so high in foods that have been processed to such an extent that they offer minimal nutrition along with unhealthy oils and high amounts of added sugar, it is disappointing to see a national nutrition organization miss the opportunity to truly educate the public on why and how highly processed foods should be limited.”

Connie Weaver, PhD, head of nutrition science at Purdue University and corresponding author of the guideline, told MedPage Today that a lack of standard definitions for various levels of processed foods has “been a big part of the conflicts and issues surrounding processed foods to date.”

“We make a call in the paper that stakeholders need to work out these definitions,” she said. “Until people can talk using a common language, they end up not talking. If we can sort through the issues that turn off the dialog, then we can get to our goal of improving the health of the food supply for Americans and beyond.”
