Study: Most American households have someone monitoring or restricting part of their diet

Most Americans (87%) say they're making an effort to eat healthy – and with good reason, as a majority say they or someone in their household monitor or restrict their intake of a nutritional component like gluten or sugar, according to a new Harris Poll. Six in ten American adults (60%, a slight uptick from 57% in 2011) say they restrict at least one nutritional component from their diet.
These are some of the results of The Harris Poll of 2,234 adults surveyed online between March 12 and 17, 2014. (Full results, including data tables, can be found here).
Sugar and salt lead limitations; gluten restrictions grow
Sugar (36%, up from 32% in 2011) and sodium/salt (36%) top the list of ingredients American households have at least one person restricting or monitoring, followed by carbohydrates (22%). Over one in ten say they or a member of their household monitors/restricts intake of dairy (13%, up from 10% in 2011), meat or meat products (also 13%, up from 10%) and lactose (11%). The percentage saying they or someone in their household monitors or restricts gluten intake has nearly doubled over the past three years, to 10% today from 6% in 2011.
"With six in ten American households having at least one member restricting certain foods from their diet, this raises important implications for the food industry as a whole," says Todd Hale, Senior Vice President Consumer Insights, Nielsen. "We've seen that a restriction for one, especially in the case of allergens and other health risks, can turn into a household ban. This can present both a challenge and an opportunity for retailers and food manufacturers."
Perhaps not surprisingly, Matures (73%) are more likely than any other generation (54% Millennials, 62% Gen Xers, 60% Baby Boomers) to say they or someone in their household restrict or monitor intake of at least one of the tested nutritional factors.
"As Americans age, they develop stronger opinions and restrictions around nutritional choices. Those 68 and older are the most likely of all generations to pay close attention to nutritional labels and restrict corresponding dietary choices such as sodium or sugar," said Hale. "Given the number of people, young and old, describing themselves as knowledgeable about food labels and making an effort to eat healthy, these generational divides suggest that actual implementation of change may stem more from necessity than knowledge."
Consumers consider freshness to be top driver for food and beverage purchase decisions 
When consumers consider making a food and beverage purchase, freshness is the most important factor, with nine in ten U.S. adults (89%) considering it important.
  • Eight in ten say fiber is important (80%), while roughly three-fourths say the same for whole grain (77%), calories (75%), portion size (73%) and fat content (73%).
  • Roughly seven in ten place importance on sodium or salt (71%), saturated fat (71%) and dairy (69%), while roughly two-thirds indicate the same for sugar (68%), natural (68%) and carbohydrates (67%).
  • Looking at more specialized nutritional factors, 49% place importance on whether food and beverage products are genetically modified, while 45% say the same for organic. Nearly four in ten place importance on glycemic index (38%), roughly three in ten say the same for lactose (31%) and gluten (28%), and knowing whether items are vegan is important to just under two in ten (18%)
Most of these factors' perceived importance increases among older Americans, though with some exceptions. The percentage placing importance on knowing whether food or beverages are genetically modified hovers at roughly the halfway mark across generations (48% Millennials, 51% Gen Xers, 49% Baby Boomers, 48% Matures), while younger Americans are more likely to place importance on whether items are organic (55%, 50%, 38% and 35%, respectively), contain lactose (37%, 28%, 28% and 27%, respectively) and are vegan (27%, 19%, 13% and 12%, respectively).
Looking to diet and/or weight management, roughly eight in ten Americans consider protein (82%) and calories (78%) to be important considerations, while roughly three-fourths indicate the same for fat (77%), whole grain (76%), saturated fat (75%) and sugar (74%). Roughly seven in ten believe carbohydrates (72%), cholesterol (70%) and sodium (68%) are important in this regard, while just over six in ten say the same for hydrogenated oil (62%).
  • Perceived importance levels again are generally higher among older generations and women.
This Harris Poll was conducted online within the United States between March 12 and 17, 2014 among 2,234 adults (aged 18 and over). Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.
All sample surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, The Harris Poll avoids the words "margin of error" as they are misleading. All that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities for pure, unweighted, random samples with 100% response rates. These are only theoretical because no published polls come close to this ideal.
Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have agreed to participate in Harris Poll surveys. The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of the adult population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in our panel, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

Indraloka Animal Sanctuary and Marywood University partner to offer Farmitecture

On any given day, a lot more than animal care and rescue goes on at Indraloka Animal Sanctuary in Mehoopany, PA, and some of it may surprise you.

Take Saturday.  A group of architecture students and their professor had a rare opportunity—a chance not only to design an eco-friendly building, but to actually build their design at Indraloka.  They are part of a class called “Farmitecture.”  A unique partnership, Indraloka and the Marywood University School of Architecture work together to offer the class.  Every year, students design and build environmentally friendly housing for the animals.

O’Connor is enthusiastic about the class.  “The students participating in the course this year are a committed and creative group constantly challenging themselves and seeking the best design solutions.  They are in a unique situation as they design for a client that cannot speak and therefore have done research to make the best design decisions.  It is wonderful seeing them become empowered through the process- watching the design come to fruition ultimately culminating in constructing the aviary.”

This year, the student project is an aviary featuring a built-in water collection system and planters.   The planters will contain peas and herbs, not only to feed the birds, but to also repel insects that bother birds, to name just a few of the visually stunning aviary’s creative features.  Last year, students built a house for mini-pigs that features moveable walls, so that the design can be altered as needed.

As if that were not enough, while the Farmitecture students were building on Saturday, the sanctuary was also hosting a semi-private coaching session on Animal Intelligence and Communication.  During the session, participants learned about the most recent scientific research on how animals communicate, and then practiced animal communication using those techniques with several of the sanctuary’s 177 rescued animal residents.

It is innovative programs like these that are getting Indraloka noticed around the world.  In fact, O’Connor, who is also Vice President of Indraloka’s board of directors, will be giving a TEDx Scranton Talk in August about the groundbreaking partnership between Indraloka and Marywood.  And Indra Lahiri, the sanctuary’s founder, will be presenting on “Building and Sustaining the Sanctuary of Your Dreams” at this year’s International Animal Rights Conference.  This is the second year in a row that the sanctuary will be featured at this conference.

Indeed, Indraloka has received so much attention recently that they have been challenged in keeping up with the onslaught of requests for animal rescue and educational opportunities.  How will they overcome this challenge?  Another creative idea has been born.

Team Indraloka : It’s a simple idea, really:  Indraloka is recruiting 1,008 people to raise $108 each in 45 days.  Doing so will allow the sanctuary to create infrastructure to meet the increased demand for its innovative educational opportunities and animal rescue services.  This will change countless lives for animals of all species as well as for the children and adults of our community.  Children and adults alike will have many new opportunities to learn and grow at Indraloka Animal Sanctuary, one of Pennsylvania’s only all-species and farm animal rescues.  On Thursday, Team Indraloka kicked off its fundraiser using to track donations, recruit team members and promote the fundraiser. 

Of the launch, Indraloka Animal Sanctuary founder Indra Lahiri said, We understood that we could not grow to meet the community’s needs without help, so we devised a simple way for supporters to make it possible for us to do more good than ever before.”  The campaign is off to a brilliant start, with 36 team members and over $10,000 raised in just the first three days.  This figure includes a seven-day matching gift challenge—the donor will match every dollar raised by sanctuary supporters in the next week, up to $8,100.

About Indraloka Animal Sanctuary:  Indraloka Animal Sanctuary provides “heaven on earth” for animals that have nowhere else to turn, and educates the community, especially children, on ways in which to better care for ourselves and the environment while helping animals in need.  Founded in 2005, Indraloka Animal Sanctuary is a private, non-profit, charitable (501c3) organization and has provided educational programs to over 1,000 children and 500 adults while rescuing and caring for more than 600 animals through their natural lifespans.

How to book an environmentally friendly vacation

The travel industry has recently started to take their environmental responsibilities seriously with measures such as carbon offsetting and eco-tourism options. It’s not too hard to stay green and enjoy a great holiday by following these simple measures.

Booking with a responsible provider
There are travel companies specifically designed around eco-holidays and responsible travel. In fact, many online travel companies offer a wealth of eco-friendly holidays to destinations around the world.

These companies actually vet the hotels, all-inclusive package providers and tour operators to ensure they meet specific standards. These standards can include recycling policies, energy use and sustainability requirements, which are calculated to create an eco-scorecard before being offered to customers.

Types of Eco-holiday
Eco-holidays have expanded recently and there are options to suit all tastes and budgets. All-inclusive packages on luxury trips, adventure holidays and eco-expeditions to far flung corners of the globe are all now available.

You can choose to avoid the mass tourist routes with specialist travel companies that focus on remote locations in Africa or you can get back to nature with discovery holidays to Scandinavia. The choice is now pretty much unlimited when it comes to travelling the world in an eco-friendly manner.

Use the offset options
Many airlines offer the option of paying a little extra to offset your carbon footprint and all you have to do is check the box during booking. There are companies that go one better and can calculate exactly how much carbon emission will be used during your flight and then provides you with the cost required to offset this amount.

Buy from the locals
Once you’re at your intended holiday destination you can do your bit to support the local population by buying local goods. Buying your souvenirs from the smaller independent traders will help to support the community you are vacationing in. Purchasing goods at the local markets, eating at traditional restaurants and taking tours from local guides will all help to sustain the community. Taking public transport at your destination rather than renting a car is another good way to help the environment or go one better and simply hire a bicycle.

Being eco-friendly abroad isn’t just about paying for carbon offsetting but can start from the moment you book your holiday via responsible travel companies. Be mindful of the destination you are visiting and treat the environment with the respect it deserves.

Tina Garcia is a well-established traveler with a real interest in the environment and green issues. In her spare time she likes to read books and test out new recipes in the kitchen.

Zevia and Oakland A's team up to offer zero calorie soda at ballpark

Starting with their 2014 Opening Homestand later this month, the Oakland Athletics will introduce Zevia as the first-ever naturally sweetened, zero calorie soda in Major League Baseball.
The groundbreaking partnership will include Zevia zero-calorie, naturally sweetened sodas available at concessions throughout Coliseum in branded coolers, sampling for fans, in-game advertising and promotions, along with special events on the 2014 calendar.
Zevia will offer six of its familiar flavors in stadium throughout the season, including Ginger Ale, Cola, Ginger Root Beer, Cream Soda, Black Cherry and Grape. Zevia is sweetened with a blend of stevia, a plant-based, smarter alternative to artificial sweeteners, so it is both all natural and contains zero calories. Recently, monk fruit was also added as a key ingredient to sweeten its product offering.
"From their success during the 1970s and 80s to the era of 'Moneyball,' the A's have always been an innovative franchise that succeeds using a different path than their competitors—this is every bit the Zevia story, as we've built the leading zero calorie, naturally sweetened soda brand, while our larger competitors stay in the bullpen," said Zevia CEO Paddy Spence. "American families have made clear they want alternatives to artificial sweeteners—the Oakland A's just gave them one."
"We are pleased to be working with Zevia to provide our fans with a natural zero-calorie option," said A's President Mike Crowley. "The A's have always been open to a new way of doing things and we are thrilled that Zevia has come on board as a business partner."
Zevia branding will be highly visible at the Coliseum, appearing on rotating billboards behind home plate and as sponsor of the team's popular Dot races, which appear on the stadium video boards during inning breaks. Zevia will also receive title sponsorship of Breast Cancer Awareness Day, including recognition on an A's co-branded pink rally towel, distributed to 10,000 fans at that game.
In addition to the A's sponsorship, Zevia works with a number of high-profile partners who were brand fans before becoming partners. Shepard Fairey's commercial agency Studio Number One creates Zevia's colorful brand visuals, while family-friendly rapper Biz Markie serves as a spokesperson.
About ZeviaZevia is the first soda brand focused exclusively on zero calorie soda naturally sweetened with a unique blend of stevia and monk fruit. Zevia provides an alternative for soda and diet soda drinkers who are looking for beverage options without sugar, calories and artificial sweeteners.

Lund University engineering students create ultimate veggie burger

A group of engineering students at Lund University in Sweden noticed there was a rather lacklustre range of veggie burgers available in supermarkets, despite a growing demand for green products. And sure enough - too many additives, no flavour, and no texture, were common complaints they came across when they asked consumers.

The food technology students didn’t stop at vegetarian, however; they set about creating a vegan burger, and one that could handle mass production and frozen distribution at that.

Their initial survey identified three key areas where consumers saw a need for improvement: more flavour, more texture and less additives.

“People have an increasing awareness of things like additives and the health effects of eating too much meat or dairy. At the same time, the effect of the foodie movement is people won’t compromise on taste or flavour to the same extent,” says Jannika Timander, the student who led the group project.

Their first problem was getting an entirely vegan product to hold together. Without being able to use eggs, and with their strict commitment to avoiding additives, they instead worked hard in the lab to make the starch from the potatoes act as a natural binding agent.

To add crunchiness and texture, they chose pieces of cauliflower and several seeds. However, the cauliflower had to be pre-blanched in order to eliminate bacteria, a criterion for keeping it safe when mass-produced. They tried three different blanching methods before finding one that retained some texture in the cauliflower. In addition, the three seeds they chose luckily survived commercial blast freezing without losing virtually any crunchiness or flavour.

The group also had to optimize the temperature in the oven, making sure the starch would behave predictably every time, even when mass produced.

“We quickly realized how different this project was from cooking at home. We had to apply everything we had learned about the science and standards of food production,” says Jannika.

When they had settled on three prototypes with different combinations of seasoning, they recruited a test panel of 30 vegetarians and vegans that chose a winner – the ‘yellow beet chili burger’. The ingredients? Yellow beets, potatoes, carrots, cauliflowers, fresh chili, lemon pepper, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and salt.

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is ranked as one of the top 100 universities in the world. With high-quality education and research at eight faculties, we are one of the most comprehensive universities in Scandinavia. The University has 47000 students and 7000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. Lund is often considered to be Sweden’s most attractive study destination and huge investments are currently being made in the new research facilities MAX IV and ESS in the city.
