Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The XII Congress of the Spanish Society for Community Nutrition (SENC), “NUTRIMAD 2018”, will be held jointly with the IV World Congress of Public Health and Nutrition from the 24–27 October 2018 in Madrid (Spain). The national and international Congresses fall under the scope of “A Global View of Food and Community Nutrition-NUTRIMAD 2018”.

NUTRIMAD 2018 will be a high-level scientific Congress, and it will ensure that Madrid will become the world capital of community nutrition and public health during that time. To fulfil our objectives, plenary sessions, panel sessions, and symposia will be held, as well as workshops and courses, both before and during the Congress. This will favour active participation of Congress attendees at all times, offering significant space for the presentation of new work and research and, what is even more important, contacts between participants who will have the opportunity over these few days to share their projects, exchange opinions, and be together “scientifically and humanly”, as is customary at our Congresses.

From the very beginning, our intention has been to offer a variety of themes that, apart from being a true reflection of the multidisciplinary nature of food and nutrition, include the following: “Education for better nutrition: what is the situation today?”, “Social aspects of food”, “The Mediterranean Diet: a multidisciplinary view”, “Physical exercise, emotional balance, and food”, “Community Nutrition for an ageing society”, “Food Sustainability”, “Healthy Gastronomy”, “Hydration at a community level”, and “Community living and eating: from collective dining places to commercial catering and leisure”, among others.

In addition, Madrid is currently one of the main attraction metropolitan areas for technology and innovation, and it is undeniably known for its open, welcoming, and friendly character, as well as being cosmopolitan, and thus it is a permanent tourist, cultural, and gastronomic attraction.

The contributions for this Special Issue derived from NUTRIMAD 2018 will be in terms of by invitation only and will reflect the different topics and discussions to be covered in the Congress.

Food Composition at Present: New Challenges

Food composition data is important for stakeholders and users active in the areas of food, nutrition and health. New challenges related to the quality of food composition data reflect the dynamic changes in these areas while the emerging technologies create new opportunities. These challenges and the impact on food composition data for the Mediterranean region were reviewed during the NUTRIMAD 2018 congress of the Spanish Society for Community Nutrition. Data harmonization and standardization, data compilation and use, thesauri, food classification and description, and data exchange are some of the areas that require new approaches. Consistency in documentation, linking of information between datasets, food matching and capturing portion size information suggest the need for new automated tools. Research Infrastructures bring together key data and services. The delivery of sustainable networks and Research Infrastructures in food, nutrition and health will help to increase access to and effective use of food composition data. EuroFIR AISBL coordinates experts and national compilers and contributes to worldwide efforts aiming to produce and maintain high quality data and tools. A Mediterranean Network that shares high quality food composition data is vital for the development of ambitious common research and policy initiatives in support of the Mediterranean Diet.
