OFTIFEL PERSONALIZED NUTRITIONAL CALCULATOR

Malte BETHKE, Lavinia MURESAN, Monica TRIF

Abstract


A food calculator for elderly people was elaborated by Centiv GmbH, an active partner in the European FP7 OPTIFEL Project, based on the functional requirement specifications and the existing recommendations for daily allowances across Europe, data which were synthetized and used to give aims in amounts per portion. The OPTIFEL Personalised Nutritional Calculator is the only available online tool which allows to determine on a personalised level the required nutrients for elderly people (65+). It has been developed mainly to support nursing homes providing best possible (personalised) nutrient enriched food to their patients. The European FP7 OPTIFEL project “Optimised Food Products for Elderly Populations†aims to develop innovative products based on vegetables and fruits for elderly populations to increase length of independence. The OPTIFEL Personalised Nutritional Calculator is recommended to be used by nursing homes.
