We all want to make an impact with the work we do, there can be no doubt that Michelle Berriedale-Johnson has achieved just that. She is an expert on food allergies and intolerances, and it would be no underestimation to say she has been crucial in spreading that knowledge to healthcare professionals and the wider public. Over the past decade, we have all become much more aware of food allergies and intolerances. For those who have them, the experience of shopping, cooking and eating can be challenging.   But things have improved. Laws have been introduced to improve labelling and the ..read more

Table Talk
by Food Matters Live
5d ago
It is three years since the United Kingdom officially withdrew from the European Union. One year later, in January 2021, a new post-Brexit trade deal came into force between the UK and the EU.   There is no doubt, it has been a bumpy ride for anybody importing or exporting.    Gone are many of the old certainties. Instead, we have had what a recent study from the London School of Economics called a "major shock" to UK-EU trade, with uncertainty, insecurity and hold-ups. But, trade deals are being done around the world. Businesses are trading and those who understand any oppo ..read more

379: Shift work and nutrition - a marriage of inconvenience
Table Talk
by Food Matters Live
1w ago
Anyone who has worked irregular hours knows that the world is built around daytime eating, not just in the home, but at shops, cafes, restaurants and canteens. But there are millions of us working rotating shifts, nightshifts and irregular hours. And when the shops are shut, and decent food is in short supply, we tend to reach all too often for those quick fixes – the crisps and the chocolate bars. Vending machines at dark, deserted bus stations can tide us over until the next meal.   Shift work has long been associated with negative health outcomes, but does when we eat matter as much ..read more

Plant-based meat alternatives are supposed to be better for the planet and they are supposed to be good for you. But as they have grown in popularity, there are claims from some quarters that there is something of a halo effect at play, and that some of these health and environmental claims do not quite stack up. Evidence is offered which mentions the nutritional shortcomings of plant-based processed foods, as well as the carbon footprint being far higher than vegetables or legumes.    In the midst of a climate crisis, where greenwashing is commonplace, this stuff really matters a ..read more

377: How can we get more fibre into our diets?
Table Talk
by Food Matters Live
2w ago
When it comes to fibre, the fact is we are not getting enough of it. Across most of the Western world, there is a lack of adequate fibre in our diets and that is contributing to health problems. In the UK, the Government says we are consuming an average of 20 grams per day, but we should be consuming 30 grams. And it is similar around the world. But why is fibre lacking in so many countries, across different cultures and diets? And why does it matter? In this episode of the Food Matters Live podcast, made in partnership with Puratos, we take a look at the innovations that are out there in ..read more

375: Can recycling habits be transformed using nudge theory?
Table Talk
by Food Matters Live
3w ago
Today we are looking at plastic bottle Deposit Return Schemes and, in particular, a scheme due to be introduced in the UK in the next couple of years. The idea is to reduce the millions of plastic bottles a day that go un-recycled, by getting consumers to pay a little extra for a drink. They can then claim that extra payment back if they return the bottle for recycling. Deposit return schemes are nothing new, they have been around in various forms for decades. So, you might ask why it is taking the UK so long to get this off the ground. But what does the drinks industry make of the scheme ..read more
