Ultra-processed Food Intake and Obesity: What Really Matters for Health—Processing or Nutrient Content?
Summarize and critique the evidence evaluating the association between ultra-processed food intake and obesity.
Recent research provides fairly consistent support for the association of ultra-processed food intake with obesity and related cardiometabolic outcomes. There is a clear need for further studies, particularly those using Longitudinaldesigns and with sufficient control for confounding, to potentially confirm these findings in different populations and to determine whether ultra-processed food consumption is associated with obesity independent of nutrient content.
