The neglected environmental impacts of ultra-processed foods./The Lancent Planetary Health

Goal

Argue that the role of food processing, and ultra-processing in particular, should be an integral part of the way we think about food sustainability.

Results

Current evaluations of environmental impacts of diets fail to adequately address the environmental impacts of UPFs. We have highlighted a number of recommendations on how to address important knowledge gaps in our conceptual and empirical understanding of food processing impacts on the environment. This would enable more effective policies towards the dual aim of healthy and sustainable diets.
