Overview


The Nutrition Bulletin provides accessible reviews at the cutting edge of research.  Read by researchers and nutritionists working in universities and research institutes; public health nutritionists, dieticians and other health professionals; nutritionists, technologists and others in the food industry; those engaged in higher education including students; and journalists with an interest in nutrition. Topics addressed in reviews cover the many and diverse areas that together comprise nutrition science, including:

  • The biochemical and physiological basis for the role of various nutrients in the body
  • Discussion of observational (epidemiological) associations between diet/nutrients and aspects of health
  • The application of nutrition to disease prevention or the particular needs of population sub-groups
  • The impact of methods of food production and processing on the composition of food, and general aspects of nutrition policy and its communication. 

Aims and Scope


The Nutrition Bulletin provides a unique blend of scientific reviews on aspects of nutrition and news of important or emerging issues in the field of human nutrition. Its particular focus is the interface between the needs of nutritionists in research, health promotion, policy and teaching, and those working in the food industry.

It is read by researchers and nutritionists working in universities and research institutes; public health nutritionists, dietitians and other health professionals; nutritionists, technologists and others in the food industry; those engaged in higher education including students; and journalists with an interest in nutrition.

Published quarterly, the Bulletin presents original and comprehensive review articles on diverse aspects of the science and application of nutrition. The scientific quality of the Bulletin is maintained through a stringent editorial policy and through submission of all review articles and original research to a peer review process, which is overseen by an international editorial board.

Topics addressed in reviews cover the many and diverse areas that together comprise nutrition science, including

  • the biochemical and physiological basis for the role of various nutrients in the body
  • discussion of observational (epidemiological) associations between diet/nutrients and aspects of health
  • the application of nutrition to disease prevention or the particular needs of population sub-groups
  • the impact of methods of food production and processing on the composition of food, and general aspects of nutrition policy and its communication.

In addition, sections feature:

  • updates on ongoing EU research
  • commentaries on recent government activities
  • brief synopses of recent scientific papers and policy documents
  • insights into the facts behind the food and nutrition media headlines
  • BNF Briefing Papers

In addition, the Bulletin includes conference reports and book reviews.

An underlying theme to many of the subjects considered is their application to decisions made within food production and distribution, and in public health nutrition policy.
