  • Leadership: working to help consumers meet the advice from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 and MyPyramid


Canning cooking l.jpg
Canning = Cooking

Canned food

  • Cooked food, packed for convenience:

    • Canned pear is a cooked pear

    • Fish (canned tuna or salmon) has been filleted and steamed

    • Canned beans have been soaked and simmered to be ready to eat

  • Preservation and safety

  • Payoff in saved time and effort

2005 Healthy Eating Trends

Positive nutrition, focusing on:

  • Variety of nutrient-rich foods to get the most nutrition for the calories

  • Health benefits of phytonutrients

  • Balance how much you eat/how much you move

    Convenience, recognizing:

  • 24/7 lifestyles

    Flavor, understanding that:

  • Taste still reigns


Foods for today s dietary guidance l.jpg
Foods for Today’s Dietary Guidance

  • Food variety

    • From and within every food group

  • Nutrient-dense foods

    • Calories that count

    • “Good” fat sources (tuna, salmon)

    • Potassium sources (fruits, vegetables)

    • Iron sources (chicken, fish, meat, beans)

    • Whole grains: corn counts

  • Foods with phytonutrients

    • Colors of health  Antioxidant power

    • Fiber (beans and more)

    • Heating/canning on bioavailability

      • Lycopene in tomatoes, lutein in corn


Research notes canned foods deliver nutrition l.jpg
Research notes…Canned Foods Deliver Nutrition

Canned, cooked fresh and frozen foods:

  • Comparable in nutrients & fiber, prepared for the table

  • Many fruits & vegetables: high in carotenoids, potassium, folate

  • Canned salmon: higher calcium (canning softens small bones)

  • Canning: no effect on fiber content; may make fiber more soluble

    Implications:

  • Canned foods are excellent alternatives to fresh and frozen, providing nutrients expected from any food group

  • If a food is labeled as high in a nutrient, then the form (canned, frozen, or fresh) will not alter that

Research notes canned foods deliver phytos l.jpg
Research notes…Canned Foods Deliver “Phytos”

Flavonoids: canned, fresh and frozen blueberries

  • Blueberries: antioxidant power, regardless of form

  • Canning: no diminished levels of flavonoids measured

  • Some flavonoid levels: canned blueberries slightly higher

  • Juices in canned blueberries: deliver antioxidants

    Implications:

  • Canned blueberries:year-round source of antioxidants

  • Unique research design: can apply to comparing phytonutrient levels in processed and fresh forms of other fruits/vegetables

    • Great year round flavor: e.g. canned tomatoes

  • Smart food prep skills retain canned foods’

    flavor and nutrition

    • Consumers only need to warm up

    • Long cooking = overcooking


Research notes canned foods deliver flavor nutrition l.jpg
Research notes…Canned Foods Deliver Flavor + Nutrition

Dishes made with canned, fresh

and/or frozen ingredients:

  • Similar nutrient profiles

  • Similar flavor perception

    Implications:

  • Ingredients, not their form, determine

    a recipe’s nutrient content

  • Good preparation, not ingredient form,

    determines flavor qualities

    Source: University of Massachusetts Nutrition Study 2000, 40 dishes made with fruits, vegetables, soups, chili, meats, fish and chicken
