This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “ Health Benefits of the Nordic Diet” welcomes the submission of manuscripts based on original data from cohort or intervention studies in relation to the potential health benefits of Nordic diets. Nordic diets were recently recognized by WHO as an evidence-based healthy choice of diet that is effective in reducing noncommunicable diseases, including CVDs and T2D. Findings in relation to other NCDs are especially welcome. Studies involving gene expression or metabolic profiling to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in the beneficial effects of Nordic diets are of interest, as are studies on targeted and untargeted metabolomics as tools to reflect the intake of Nordic diets or specific components. Recent studies using metabolomics and gut microbiota profiles to define responders and non-responders to Nordic diets in relation to metabolic risk factors are also welcome.
While scientific collaboration within and between the Nordic countries has resulted in the present science-based knowledge on the health effects related to Nordic diets, the benefits have also lead to several Nordic public health actions. Scientific effectiveness studies on the health-related impact of these actions with perspectives on the health benefits of Nordic diets from very early in life to the older population are also very welcome. The Nordic diet depends heavily on locally produced foods. Focus on sustainability in the context of the health benefits of Nordic diets is therefore warranted.
