On a research trip to Denmark this week, Dr Sue took the opportunity to bring you to the research supermarket where an innovative new diet called the New Nordic Diet is being studied. In an interview with Sanne Poulsen, PhD student at the Department of Human Nutrition, University of Copenhagen, we learn about the New Nordic Diet Study, which compares the effects of this diet with the traditional Danish diet on body weight, body composition, and cardiovascular risk factors.

The New Nordic Diet focuses on healthy foods that are cultivated in Scandinavia, such as whole grains (rye, barley, oats), berries, root vegetables, and fish. There is also an emphasis on choosing foodstuffs that are produced in an environmentally sustainable fashion.
