Balanced nutrition is the cornerstone of health


Food plays a key role in advancing human health and well-being, as nutrition affects daily work capacity and the development of diseases that cause premature disability for work. The basis for the nutrition assessment is the recommended dish model and food pyramid. The key is the balance of nutrition, exercise, recovery and sleep:
  • Nutri-Flow provides the basis for a balanced, individual and recommended diet.
  • For physical activity, services developed for individual monitoring can be used.
  • Individual measurement and analysis of the amount and quality of sleep are available.

Nutri-Flow focuses on individual nutrition guidance that supports recovery and the achievement of exercise goals, as well as improving sleep quality.

What is nutritional value i.e. nutrient density

Nutrient density tells you how much nutrients your body needs in relation to the amount of energy it contains. Protective nutrients include e.g. vitamins, fibers and minerals.
Often, fresh, little-processed, or processed foods, such as vegetables, have a high nutrient density. When the nutrient density is low, the food has a lot of so-called empty energy, i.e. a lot of energy but little protective nutrients.
Even if the daily energy requirement decreases, the need for nutrients will not decrease. Thus, there is a risk of reducing the amount of nutrients needed when reducing the amount of energy in food.
Importance of nutrient density in diets (Nutritional expert of Nutri-Flow Oy):
  • Diet 1 is the most common, providing enough protective nutrients but too much energy relative to the protective nutrients.
  • Diet 2 is rich in extra energy, but not enough protective nutrients.
  • Diet 3 describes the most common diet for a dieter, the elderly or children, where the amount of food is small and the protective nutrients are low because no attention has been paid to the content of the food.
  • In a nutrient-dense diet 4, the ratio of protective nutrients to energy is ideal.

Nutrition information in the calculations

  • Since 1956, nutrition has been evaluated on the basis of energy. By focusing only on estimating the appropriate amount of energy, the kilocalorie count does not use other existing data on the composition of the diet.
  • Since 1999, the calculation of nutrient density has been used in nutrition assessment and by researchers.
  • Nutrient density tells how much nutrients body needs in relation to the amount of energy it contains.
  • The calculation of nutrient density has been developed in France, Germany and Finland.
  • Only in Finland is an intelligent nutrient density calculation service used: .
