A review of the aging population as food consumers, this book explores the role of nutrition in healthy ageing and the design of food products and services for the elderly. It discusses aspects of the elderly's relationship with food such as appetite and ageing, ageing and sensory perception, food and satisfaction with life, and the social significance of meals. It then examines the role of nutrition in extending functionality into later years, covering topics such as undernutrition, Alzheimer's disease, bone and joint health, and eye-related disorders. Concluding chapters address the issues of food safety, designing new foods and beverages for the ageing, and nutrition education programs.
