Dutch researchers are taking a multifaceted approach to improve the food we eat. First, they are developing textures and flavors that people will find satisfying and will want to eat. Meanwhile, they are looking for ways to lower the salt, sugar and fat content of food, a goal that will help fight the rising epidemic of obesity and diabetes. Finally, they are creating smart packaging and methods to detect toxins and bacteria that keep food safe from our fields to your table.
