    • Abstract: Resumen: Antecedentes: el etiquetado nutricional permite a los consumidores tomar mejores decisiones sobre alimentación, lo que contribuye a combatir las enfermedades crónicas no transmisibles. Objetivo: determinar cómo influye la interpretación del etiquetado nutricional, presente en los alimentos industrializados en Colombia, en la decisión de compra de estudiantes de pregrado del área de la salud de la Universidad CES. Materiales y métodos: se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo en 76 estudiantes de quinto semestre de programas de pregrado del área de la salud. Resultados: la frecuencia en el uso del etiquetado nutricional se asoció con el sexo (p = 0,036), el tipo de programa (p < 0,001) y el conocimiento de la función del etiquetado nutricional (p = 0,000). La buena interpretación del etiquetado nutricional no condicionó la frecuencia en su uso (p = 0,095); además, el nivel de interpretación del etiquetado nutricional no se asoció con el sexo ni con el tipo de programa de pregrado. Finalmente, se encontró que la decisión de compra estaba influenciada por la costumbre (p = 0,018) y la publicidad (p = 0,008) y no por la interpretación del etiquetado nutricional. Conclusiones: aunque el uso del etiquetado nutricional es más frecuente entre las mujeres, los estudiantes de Nutrición y Dietética y entre quienes conocen la función del etiquetado nutricional, la decisión de compra no está influenciada por su interpretación.Abstract: Background: Nutritional labeling enables consumers to make better food choices, helping to fight chronic non-communicable diseases. Objective: To determine the influence of the interpretation of the nutritional labeling, present in industrialized foods in Colombia, on the purchase decision of undergraduate students in the health area of the CES University. Material and Methods: A descriptive observational study was carried out in a population of 76 fifth-semester students enrolled in the undergraduate programs of the health area. Results: The frequency of nutrition labeling use was associated with sex (p=0.036), the type of undergraduate program (p<0.001), and knowledge of the function of the nutrition labeling (p=0.000). A good interpretation of the nutrition labeling does not condition the frequency of its use (p=0,095). Additionally, the level of interpretation of the nutritional labeling was not associated with sex, nor the type of undergraduate program. Finally, it was found that the purchase decision was influenced by custom (p=0.018) and advertising (p=0,008), and not by the interpretation of the nutrition labeling. Conclusions: Although the use of nutrition labeling is more frequent among women, among students of Nutrition and Dietetics, and among those who are aware of the role of nutrition labeling, the purchase decision is not influenced by its interpretation.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: la deficiencia de vitamina D es un problema de salud pública asociado con diversas enfermedades en población adulta que podría estar relacionado con la actividad laboral. Objetivo: relacionar la deficiencia de vitamina D con el estado nutricional, la composición corporal y factores sociodemográficos en trabajadores de Quito, Ecuador. Materiales y métodos: estudio transversal en 245 trabajadores. Se evaluó vitamina D sérica por inmunofluorescencia, estado nutricional por Índice de Masa Corporal, composición corporal por bioimpedancia y otros factores sociodemo gráficos. Se usó regresión logística para identificar asociaciones entre deficiencia de vitamina D y variables de interés. Resultados: el 76 % de la población presentó deficiencia de vitamina D. El riesgo cardiovascular por circunferencia abdominal, edad y sexo estaban asociados con deficiencia de vitamina D. Por cada centímetro de incremento en la circunferencia abdominal, la prevalencia de deficiencia de vitamina D incrementaba 4,4 % (OR = 1,044 IC95 %:1,001-1,008; p = 0,043). Por cada año de edad de incremento, la prevalencia disminuía 4,1 % (OR = 0,96; IC95 %:0,93-0,99; p = 0,030). Las mujeres mostraron 2,33 veces más deficiencia de vitamina D en comparación con los hombres (OR = 2,33 IC95 %:1,28-6,94 p = 0,011). Conclusión: la deficiencia de vitamina D es alta en los traba jadores de la ciudad de Quito. Aparentemente, mujeres jóvenes con una circunferencia abdominal alta tienen mayor probabilidad de presentar esta deficiencia. El exceso de peso podría estar reduciendo la actividad física al aire libre, lo que disminuye a su vez la exposición a la luz solar y esto deriva en deficiencia de vitamina D.Abstract: Background: Vitamin D Deficiency is a public health problem associated with various diseases in the adult population that could be related to work activity. Objective: To relate vitamin D deficiency with nutritional status, body composition, and sociodemographic factors in workers from Quito, Ecuador. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study in 245 workers. Serum vitamin D was evaluated by immunofluorescence, nutritional status by Body Mass Index, body composition by bioimpedance, and other sociodemographic factors were also evaluated. The associations between vitamin D deficiency and variables of interest were examined by logistic regression. Results: Vitamin D deficiency was presented in 76% of the participants. Cardiovascular risk by abdominal circumference, age, and sex were associ ated with vitamin D deficiency. For each centimeter increase in abdominal circumference, the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency increased 4.4% (OR = 1.044 CI95%:1.001-1.008; p = 0.043). For each year of age increase, the prevalence decreased 4.1% (OR = 0.96; 95%CI:0.93-0.99; p = 0.030). Women showed 2.33 times more vitamin D deficiency than men (OR = 2.33 CI95%:1.28-6.94 p = 0.011). Conclusion: Vitamin D deficiency is high in workers in the city of Quito. Apparently, young female with a high abdominal circumference appear to be more likely to be this deficient. Excess weight likely influences outdoor physical activity, which in turn decreases exposure to sunlight and leads to vitamin D deficiency.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Antecedentes: las escuelas de campo para agricultores constituyen una metodología en la que los participantes comparten conocimientos previos para brindar soluciones a problemas agrarios. Objetivo: fortalecer la disponibilidad, acceso y consumo de alimentos saludables, mediante la estrategia Sembrando Salud en dos veredas rurales y el centro poblado del municipio de Soracá, Boyacá, Colombia, en el año 2017. Materiales y métodos: se realizó un estudio mixto que incluyó observación participante para evidenciar el fenómeno del acceso a alimentos y encuestas para medir el cambio en acceso, disponibilidad y consumo de alimentos saludables. Con las escuelas de campo se desarrollaron cinco módulos de formación con una intensidad de siete horas cada uno. Resultados: Sembrando Salud contó con la participación de 100 personas, 40 % menores de 18 años y 60 % adultos; 74 % mujeres y 26 % hombres. El acceso, disponibilidad y consumo de frutas y verduras es limitado, por los elevados costos de los alimentos y por el desconocimiento de su preparación. El cambio en la inclusión y consumo de frutas y verduras se evidenció en el 59,4 %, que realizó cambios en la producción, 51,9 % en la preparación y 43 % en adquirir verduras por otra vía. Conclusión: Sembrando Salud demostró que los procesos de participación y educación rural permiten el mejoramiento en el acceso, la disponibilidad y el consumo de alimentos saludables en poblaciones rurales.Abstract: Background: Farmer field schools are a methodology in which participants share prior knowledge to supply solutions to agrarian problems. Objective: To strengthen the availability, access, and consumption of healthy food through Sembrando Salud strategy in two rural villages and the town center of the municipality of Soracá, Boyacá, Colom bia, in 2017. Materials and Methods: A mixed study was conducted including participant observation to show the phenomenon of food access and surveys to measure the change in access, availability, and consumption of healthy foods. With the farmer schools were developed five training modules with seven hours of intensity each. Results: Sembrando Salud involved 100 participants, 40 % under 18 years of age and 60 % adults; 74 % female and 26 % male. Access, availability, and consumption of fruits and vegetables are limited, due to the high cost of food and lack of knowledge on how to prepare them. The change in the inclusion and consumption of fruit and vegetables was showed by 59.4 % making changes in production, 51.9 % in preparation, and 43% in acquiring vegetables by other means. Conclusion: Sembrando Salud demonstrated that rural participation and education processes allow the improvement of access, availability, and consumption of healthy food in rural populations.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Antecedentes: se ha observado baja calidad de vida relacionada con la salud en pacientes con trastornos de la conducta alimentaria, pero poco se sabe acerca de cómo inciden los tratamientos, tal como la terapia cognitivo conductual, desde las percepciones y experiencias de los pacientes. Objetivo: explorar la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud en jóvenes diagnosticados con trastornos de la conducta alimentaria que reciben terapia cognitivo conductual. Materiales y métodos: estudio cualitativo con metodología de casos múltiples y muestreo intencional de cinco jóvenes que recibían terapia cognitivo conductual para trastornos de la conducta alimentaria en dos programas de tratamiento de la ciudad de Medellín, a los cuales se les realizó una entrevista a profundidad relacionada con la calidad de vida respecto a la salud. Resultados: aunque la terapia cognitivo conductual generó restricciones en la vida de los participantes al inicio del tratamiento, se observaron mejoras en diferentes ámbitos de la calidad de vida relacionada con la salud a medida que este avanzaba: capacidad para hacer cosas, moverse o cuidarse a sí mismo; habilidades cognitivas y académicas; estado emocional; relaciones sociales; percepción de sí mismo y percepción del estado de salud, incluyendo la salud mental. Conclusión: los participantes mejoraron su calidad de vida relacionada con la salud progresivamente, como resultado de la terapia cognitivo conductual, tanto por la reducción de las problemáticas asociadas a trastornos de la conducta alimentaria como por el incremento de habilidades para la vida.Abstract: Background: Low health-related quality of life has been observed in patients with eating disorders, but little is known about how treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, impact the perceptions and experiences of patients. Objective: To explore the health-related quality of life in youth diagnosed with eating disorders receiving cognitive behavioral therapy. Materials and Methods: Qualitative study with multiple case methodology and intentional sampling of five youth receiving cognitive behavioral therapy for eating disorders in two treatment programs in the city of Medellín. These youth were given an in-depth interview related to health-related quality of life. Results: Although cognitive behavioral therapy created restrictions in the lives of the participants at the beginning of the treatment, improvements were observed in different areas of health-related quality of life, as treatment progressed: the ability to do things, move or take care of oneself; cognitive and academic skills; emotional state; social relationships; self-perception and health status perception, including mental health. Conclusion: The participants progressively improved their health-related quality of life as a result of cognitive behavioral therapy, both by reducing the problems associated with eating disorders and by increasing life skills.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: la pandemia y el confinamiento por COVID-19 modificaron las condiciones de vida de los escolares y sus familias. Objetivo: describir la ejecución de una intervención educativa alimentaria en escolares de la Institución Educativa Monseñor Gerardo Valencia Cano, Medellín, Colombia, antes y durante el confinamiento por COVID-19. Materiales y métodos: investigación cualitativa con apoyo de variables cuantitativas. La recolección y análisis de datos se hicieron con base en la teoría fundamentada. La población estuvo conformada por escolares y padres de familia de la Institución Educativa Monseñor Gerardo Valencia Cano. Antes de la COVID-19 se realizaron cuatro grupos focales y una encuesta semiestructurada a 416 estudiantes y sus padres de familia, y con 42 docentes se realizaron cuatro grupos focales más; estos se realizaron hasta alcanzar la saturación. Durante el confinamiento se aplicaron 237 encuestas a familias (escolares y padres). Se evaluó el estado nutricional. Resultados: el 37 % de los escolares entre tercero y séptimo grado tenía exceso de peso. Se logró identificar de manera participativa los factores de riesgo y protectores frente al exceso de peso, para definir una intervención educativa alimentaria desde y con los sujetos. Los nodos conceptuales de la intervención fueron alimentación saludable, métodos de cocción, preparación de alimentos saludables y alimentación para la prevención del exceso de peso y cáncer de colon. Conclusiones: el reconocimiento de las condiciones alimentarias antes y después del confinamiento de los escolares y sus familias, o del cambio de estas a lo largo de la intervención educativa, contribuyó a lograr coherencia entre las necesidades, objetivos educativos y metodologías implementadas. El hecho de tener reunidos en un mismo espacio (hogar) a los escolares y sus padres durante el confinamiento propició un microentorno favorecedor de conductas que motivaron una mejora de los hábitos alimentarios familiares.Abstract: Background: The pandemic and COVID-19 confinement changed the living conditions of schoolchildren and their families. Objective: To describe the implementation of an educational food intervention in schoolchildren at the Monseñor Gerardo Valencia Cano Educational Institution, Medellín, Colombia, before and during the COVID-19confinement. Materials and Methods: Qualitative research supported by quantitative variables. Data collection and analysis were based on grounded theory. The population consisted of schoolchildren and parents of the Monseñor Gerardo Valencia Cano Educational Institution. Before COVID-19, four focus groups and a semi-structured survey were conducted with 416 students and their parents, and four more focus groups were conducted with 42 teachers; these were carried out until saturation was reached. During the confinement, 237 surveys were administered to families (students and parents). Nutritional status was evaluated. Results: 37% of the students between third and seventh grade were overweight. It was possible to identify in a participatory way the risk and protective factors against excess weight, in order to define an educational food intervention from and with the subjects. The conceptual nodes of the intervention were healthy eating, cooking methods, preparation of healthy food, and food for the prevention of excess weight and colon cancer. Conclusions: The recognition of the nutritional conditions before and after the confinement of the schoolchildren and their families, or the change of these throughout the educational intervention, helped to achieve coherence between the needs, educational objectives, and methodologies implemented. The fact of having schoolchildren and their parents gathered in the same space (home) during confinement generated a microenvironment that favored behaviors that triggered an improvement in family eating habits.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Antecedentes: se cuenta con recomendaciones de energía y nutrientes para población sana; sin embargo, a nutrientes como las vitaminas D, E, K se les atribuyen funciones importantes en diferentes situaciones de salud. Objetivo: explorar la efectividad de dosis dietarias y de suplementos de las vitaminas D, E y K en condiciones especiales de salud y enfermedad. Materiales y métodos: se realizó una búsqueda de documentos en las bases de datos PubMed, Scopus, ScienceDirect, Lilacs, SciELO, Ebsco y en textos especializados utilizando palabras clave: “vitamin D”, “vitamin E”, “vitamin K”, “health”, “disease”, “nutritional recommendations”. Resultados: hay un importante número de estudios y revisiones sistemáticas que contribuyen a la evidencia y la discusión en cuanto a efecto, dosis y tiempo, los cuales arrojaron tanto desenlaces positivos como nulos. Conclusión: los efectos de la vitamina D dietaria en la salud ósea están bien documentados, y sus suplementos acompañados de calcio están indicados en grupos poblacionales con riesgo de osteoporosis, pero no en otras condiciones clínicas. No hay suficiente evidencia sobre los beneficios de la vitamina E en el manejo o prevención de enfermedad hepática, cardiovascular o cáncer. La vitamina K podría ser importante en la salud ósea, sobre otras condiciones clínicas.Abstract: Background: There are energy and nutrient recommendations for a healthy population; however, important functions in different health situations are attributed to nutrients such as vitamins D, E, K, E and K. Objective: To explore the effectiveness of dietary doses and supplements of vitamins D, E and K in special conditions of health and disease. Materials and Methods: A document search was carried out in the PubMed, Scopus, Sciencedirect, Lilacs, Scielo and Ebsco databases, and in specialized texts using keywords: “vitamin D”, “vitamin E”, “vitamin K”, “Health”, “disease”, “nutritional recommendations”. Results: There is a significant number of studies and systematic reviews that contribute to the evidence and discussion regarding effect, dose and time, which yielded both positive and null outcomes. Conclusion: The effects of dietary vitamin D in bone health are well documented and its supplementation accompanied by calcium is indicated in population groups at risk for osteoporosis, but not in other clinical conditions. There is insufficient evidence on the benefits of vitamin E in the management or prevention of liver disease, cardiovascular disease, or cancer. Vitamin K could be important in bone health, over other clinical conditions.

    • Abstract: Resumen: Antecedentes: los conservantes de origen sintético, como nitratos y nitritos, empleados en la industria alimentaria para la conservación de matrices cárnicas, han reportado efectos desfavorables a largo plazo en la salud de los consumidores recurrentes. Objetivo: conocer las características fisicoquímicas y antimicrobianas del propóleo como potencial bioconservante en matrices cárnicas de alto consumo. Materiales y métodos: se desarrolló una revisión bibliográfica de literatura acorde a la pregunta problema planteada por el grupo de investigación, y se llevó a cabo una búsqueda en las bases de datos Scopus, NCBI, SciELO, ScienceDirect y Google Scholar de artículos de revisión, artículos científicos, libros y trabajos de grado. Resultados: el propóleo es un compuesto natural con una variedad amplia de elementos útiles para la conservación de matrices cárnicas, por sus propiedades antimicrobianas y antioxidantes. Conclusiones: el propóleo presenta propiedades antimicrobianas y antioxidantes útiles en el campo de la industria alimentaria, por lo que se considera una de las alternativas más viables para la conservación de productos cárnicos y la disminución del uso de conservantes sintéticos en producción cárnica. No obstante, es fundamental el desarrollo de más investigaciones que permitan evaluar el comportamiento de los compuestos activos del propóleo en las diversas matrices cárnicas.Abstract: Background: Preservatives of synthetic origin, such as nitrates and nitrites, used in the food industry for the preservation of meat matrices, have reported long-term unfavorable effects on the health of recurrent consumers. Objective: To know the physicochemical and antimicrobial characteristics of propolis as a potential biopreservative in high consumption meat matrices. Materials and Methods: A bibliographic review of literature was developed according to the problem question posed by the research group, carrying out a search in the Scopus, NCBI, SciELO, ScienceDirect and Google Scholar databases of review articles, scientific articles, books and works degree. Results: Propolis is a natural compound with a wide variety of useful elements for the conservation of meat matrices, due to its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Conclusions: Propolis has useful antimicrobial and antioxidant properties in the field of the food industry, being considered one of the most viable alternatives for the preservation of meat products and the reduction of the use of synthetic preservatives in meat production. However, it is essential to develop more research to evaluate the behavior of the active compounds of propolis in the various meat matrices.
