It is also important to highlight the impact of the demographic change on public health and its costs. Seafood and meat are food protein sources well-known by senior population, and are well introduced in their daily diet habits, allowing an adequate intake of essential nutrients as minerals and vitamins. They can contribute to improve health and well-being. This activity aims at defining consumer insights and nutritional requirements in many health aspects (cardiovascular, bones, muscle, joints, brain, eyesight) and then develop innovative fish and meat products ranges, easy to prepare, with enhanced and adapted nutritional and sensory properties according to senior consumer needs (fiber, omega 3, protein, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K, peptides, probiotics). For these developments, through consumer involvement, health, nutritional and sensory requirements will be taken into account and products assessed with consumer before launching to the market. A positive outcome of the project will have a big impact on public health, increasing well-being and reducing health costs, due to its contribution to positive changes in consumer nutrition.
