Commentary on the concept of nutritional value indices



The essence of this concept is that some quantitative quantities characterizing the chemical constituents of the product are attributed to various food products. Due to which the value of food products or the entire diet can be expressed by the index obtained by adding these values. At the same time, the qualitatively different components of the diet are considered interchangeable, which creates the danger of the formation of defective diets, since the main one is the number of calculated indices, and not the balanced nutrition of the main nutrients.
The most popular diet currently in the framework of the concept of nutritional value indices is the spectacle diet proposed by Erna Karise from Germany.
According to the principles of this diet, each product is evaluated by a certain number of points, and this is done only on one basis - the energy content in them without taking into account their chemical composition. Thus, in a spectacled diet, proteins, fats, carbohydrates are interchangeable foods. The idea of ​​scoring points for different types of food is strange and unintelligible. Despite the fact that the scoring principle is based on an energy principle, the ratio of points differs sharply from the ratio of caloric content of products and is often simply inexplicable. For example, 20 g of lard is estimated at 0 points, fried goose - 0 points, and 20 g of butter - 1 point, while 2 pears - 23 points, 10 g of chocolate - 54 points, and a glass of kefir - 13 points.
The authors of the theory do not recognize the importance of other properties of food products, other than expressed in points of their energy value, calculated by some dubious methods.
It is believed that 1 point is equal to 70 kcal, and a person needs to accumulate energy for 80 points daily, no more, which corresponds to 2400 kcal. But it turns out that a high-calorie product, lard, does not have glasses at all. Then, according to this crazy logic, it turns out that you can eat it with kilograms and not get fat ?! Absurd. Such a transfer of points in calories is perplexing and protesting.
Any theory should be based on common sense and reason, and this is clearly not enough for the concept of nutritional value indices. The baseless conclusion that only calories are important to a person, moreover, are inadequately counted in points, contradicts the laws of a balanced diet. And, of course, a spectacle diet associated with malnutrition, with prolonged adherence, leads to metabolic disorders in the body.
And the lack of balance in the quantity and quality of consumed proteins, fats, carbohydrates and minerals causes many irreparable diseases. Due to the absurdly high point value of vegetables, fruits, black bread, a person who wants to get away from extra pounds in accordance with an absurd diet has to limit their consumption, while it is scientifically proven that these foods play a significant role in a diet designed for weight loss .
Thus, arbitrary and incorrect determination of the value of products should be considered as life-threatening.

Commentary on the concept of nutritional value indices

  1. Commentary on the concept of the main nutritional factor
    Fans of this theory believe that the body should be fully provided with some one or more nutritional factors, and all other food components are either secondary or simply not needed. Naturally, with this approach, not only minor substrates, but also some essential nutrients disappear from the diet. That the concept of the main nutritional factor is contrived and
  2. Test. Physiological and hygienic value of food products. Energy Evaluation of Diet, 2009
    Introduction.Physiological role and hygienic value of proteins. Physiological role and hygienic value of fats. Physiological role and hygienic value of carbohydrates. Physiological and hygienic assessment of the main trace elements. Vitamins. Energy assessment of food ration.
  3. Commentary on the concept of imaginary drugs
    This theory is somewhat close to the idea of ​​the main nutritional factor and consists in the fact that individual products are endowed with exceptional healing properties. Based on its incredible value, this product or substance is unjustifiably extolled, advertised and recommended for all people and for all diseases. Periodically, some imaginary drugs are overthrown, while others replace them. Man in power
  4. Commentary on the Ancestral Nutrition Concept
    Adherents of this theory believe that initially a person is adapted only to such a way of eating, which is inherited from distant ancestors. Particularly adherents of raw food diet and dry food adhere to this concept of nutrition. Although each of these directions is based on close ideas, their representatives are antagonistic to each other. Raw foodists do not recognize those who are keen on dry eating, and
  5. Commentary on the concept of absolutism of optimality
    Proponents of this theory are trying to create a diet through some universal formula for the ideal ratio of food products. This diet should be best suited immediately for all aspects of the human body. Knowing the formula of an ideal diet, you can limit yourself to a set of only these products. What a saving and rationality! Nothing to grow many plants and
  6. The nutritional value of bread
    The nutritional and biological value of bread depends on the type and grade of flour used and the content of fillers. Due to the fact that the daily diet includes from 250 to 500 g of bread, a person receives daily 25–35 g of protein, 150-200 g of carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. The biological value of bread proteins is determined by the value of the flour proteins used to make the dough. By protein content
  7. Nutritional and biological value of fish
    Fish and fish products occupy a significant place in the nutrition of the population. Nutritional and biological value lies in the fact that fish is a source of high-grade protein, easily digestible fat, rich in fat-soluble vitamins; fish, especially marine, contains a significant number of various mineral elements. Due to the low content of connective tissue, fish after heat
  8. FOOD VALUE OF VEGETABLE PRODUCTS
    The nutritional value of plant products depends on their chemical composition. Plant foods (vegetables, root crops, fruits, berries, beans and some cereals, mushrooms) occupy a large place in human nutrition. They are the main source of carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Many plant foods are widely used as seasonings (spices, spices) to
  9. Nutritional and biological value of eggs
    The nutrients that make up eggs have high biological and nutritional value. Protein proteins are represented by ovoalbumin, ovoglobulin, ovomucin, lysozyme, conalbumin, avidin, etc. The amount of protein is 10.8 g per 100 g of protein. Ovoglobulin has the ability to whip to form a foam, the stability of which is ensured by ovomucin. Avidin's
  10. Nutritional and biological value of staple foods
    The nutritional value of a product is determined by its content of nutrients (food and taste), the biological value is determined by its amino acid rate, the presence of PUFA, vitamins, mineral salts and other biologically active substances. The main foods are bread, meat and meat products, fish and fish products, milk and dairy products, vegetables, berries, fruits and some others
  11. Types of sausages and their nutritional value
    Production of sausages is carried out in sausage shops of meat processing plants or in special plants. The layout of these enterprises should ensure the accuracy of technological processes that exclude the contact of raw materials with finished products or semi-finished products, which ensures separate use of premises, equipment, inventory, lifting and other mechanisms.
