    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: los alimentos desperdiciados en ventas al detalle en Latinoamérica (15 %) podrían suplir las necesidades alimenticias del 64 % de quienes sufren hambre en la región. Objetivo: determinar los desperdicios de alimentos en tres servicios de alimentación de la sede Rodrigo Facio de la Universidad de Costa Rica a partir de la guía de medición de la Red Costarricense para Disminuir la Pérdida y el Desperdicio de Alimentos. Materiales y métodos: los desperdicios en los servicios de alimentación N1 y N2 fueron medidos en 2018 y 2019 y en el N3 en 2019; se realizaron 15 mediciones siguiendo la metodología de la guía y se reportaron como porcentaje del total de producción de sólidos. Resultados: los desperdicios en la producción total fueron 15,0-16,6 % en 2018 y 6,4-11,5 % en 2019. No se encontraron diferencias entre los servicios de alimentación en la producción promedio (p=0,1467), en el desperdicio del área de almacenamiento (p=0,1293) ni en la producción de alimentos (p=0,7718). Se encontraron diferencias en el desperdicio entre los servicios de alimentación en el área de servicio: desperdicios en barra (p=0,0197), en plato/ desayuno (p=0,0075) y en plato/almuerzo (p=0,0362). Conclusiones: la cantidad de desperdicios encontrados son menores a los reportados en otros estudios.Abstract Background: Food wasted in retail in Latinamerica (15%) could supply the nutritional needs of 64% of the hungry in the region. Objective: To determine food waste in three food services of the Rodrigo Facio campus of the Universidad de Costa Rica, using the measurement guide of the Costa Rican Network to reduce food loss and waste. Materials and Methods: Waste in food services N1 and N2 were measured in 2018 and 2019, and in the N3 in 2019. In total 15 measurements were made following the methodology of the guide and they were reported as a percentage of total solids production. Results: Waste in total production was 15.0-16.6% in 2018 and 6.4-11.5% in 2019. No differences were found between food services in average production (p=0.1467), in the waste storage area (p=0.1293), nor food production (p = 0.7718). Differences in waste were found between food services in the service area: Waste in the service bar (p=0.0197), in plate/breakfast (p=0.0075), and in plate/lunch (p=0.0362). Conclusions: The amount of waste found is lower than that reported in other studies.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: la relación entre el estado nutricional y la condición física en los preescolares colombianos no está bien documentada. Objetivo: identificar las diferencias en la condición física de preescolares colombianos de 5 años de edad según su estado nutricional. Materiales y métodos: estudio descriptivo en 43 niños y 34 niñas de 5 años de Cúcuta, Colombia. El estado nutricional fue valorado con el Índice de Masa Corporal para la edad, y para evaluar la condición física se aplicó la batería PreFit. Resultados: la proporción de delgadez fue del 27,9 % en los niños y del 20,6 % en las niñas; no se encontró obesidad en el grupo total. Con excepción del VO2máx, calificado como bueno, las demás pruebas se clasificaron como malas o muy malas en los dos sexos y en los grupos con bajo peso y sin bajo peso. No se encontraron diferencias significativas en la condición física según el estado nutricional de los niños, y entre las niñas, con bajo peso y sin bajo peso, solo se obtuvo diferencia significativa (p=0,036) en la fuerza prensil de la mano derecha. Conclusión: en los preescolares estudiados, la proporción de delgadez está muy por encima de la prevalencia nacional y no hay diferencias en la condición física según el estado nutricional.Abstract Background: The relationship between nutritional status and physical condition in Colombian preschoolers is not well documented. Objective: To identify the differences in the physical condition of Colombian preschoolers of 5 years old according to the nutritional status. Materials and Methods: Descriptive study in 43 boys and 34 girls of 5 years old from Cúcuta, Colombia. The nutritional status was assessed with the Body Mass Index for age, and to evaluate the physical condition the PreFit battery was applied. Results: The proportion of thinness was 27.9% in boys and 20.6% in girls; obesity was not found in the total group. With the exception of VO2max rated as good, the other tests were classified as bad or very bad in both sexes, and in groups with low weight and without low weight. No significant differences were found in the physical condition according to the nutritional status of the boys, and between the girls, with low weight and without low weight, only a significant difference (p=0.036) was obtained in the prehensile strength of the right hand. Conclusion: In the preschools studied, the proportion of thinness is well above the national prevalence and there are no differences in physical condition according to the nutritional status.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: la calidad de vida en relación con la salud de las personas con enfermedad celiaca puede estar influenciada por la adherencia a la dieta sin gluten. Objetivos: describir las características demográficas y clínicas de los celiacos, evaluar la adherencia dietética con el cuestionario CDAT de Leffler y medir la calidad de vida autopercibida utilizando el cuestionario CD-QOL. Métodos y materiales: diseño observacional, transversal y prospectivo. Se aplicó una encuesta telemática a adolescentes y adultos de Paraguay diagnosticados con enfermedad celiaca, entre febrero y abril del año 2021, que accedieron a participar del estudio. La adherencia dietética se determinó con el cuestionario Celiac Dietary Adherence Test de Leffler y la calidad de vida con el CD-QOL de Dorn. Se midieron además variables demográficas y clínicas. La investigación fue aprobada por el Comité de Ética de la Universidad Privada del Este, en Paraguay. Resultados: la muestra estuvo constituida por 344 sujetos de estudio, de los cuales el 87 % pertenecía al sexo femenino. La edad media de los adolescentes fue de 15,1 años, y la de los adultos de 38±13 años. La adherencia a la dieta sin gluten se encontró en el 78 % (n=268) de los encuestados; fue buena en el 59 %, moderada en el 19 % y mala en el 22 % de los encuestados. La calidad de vida fue buena en el 30 % (n=103) de los sujetos y mala en el 70 % (n=241). Se encontró asociación entre los sujetos sin o mala adherencia a la dieta con la mala calidad de vida (p<0,006). Conclusión: en los celiacos estudiados, la mala adherencia a la dieta sin gluten se asocia con menor calidad de vida en relación con la salud.Abstract Background: The health-related quality of life of people with celiac disease may be influenced by adherence to a gluten-free diet. Objectives: To describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of celiac patients, to evaluate dietary adherence with the Leffler CDAT questionnaire, and to measure self-perceived quality of life using the CD-QOL questionnaire. Material and Methods: Observational, cross-sectional, and prospective design. A telematic survey was applied to adolescents and adults in Paraguay, diagnosed with celiac disease, between February and April 2021, who agreed to participate in the study. Dietary adherence was determined with the Celiac Dietary Adherence Test of Leffler and quality of life with the test CD-QOL of Dorn. Demographic and clinical variables were also measured. The research was approved by the Ethics Committee of the Universidad Privada del Este, in Paraguay. Results: The sample consisted of 344 study subjects of which 87% belonged to the female sex. The mean age of the adolescents was 15 ±1 years, and that of the adults was 38 ±13 years. Adherence to a gluten-free diet was found in 78% (n=268) of those surveyed, it was good in 59%, moderate in 19%, and bad in 22%. The quality of life was good in 30% (n=103) of the subjects and bad in 70% (n 241). It was found an association between subjects with no or bad adherence to the diet with bad quality of life (p<0.006). Conclusion: In the celiac patients studied, poor adherence to the gluten-free diet is associated with worse health-related quality of life.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: los hábitos alimentarios inciden directamente en el rendimiento académico. Entre la población de jóvenes universitarios, se ha observado que existe asociación entre los buenos hábitos de alimentación y de estudio, lo que repercute positivamente en su rendimiento académico. Objetivo: determinar la relación existente entre los hábitos alimentarios y el rendimiento académico de estudiantes de universidades públicas y privadas de Chapinero, Bogotá. Materiales y métodos: se aplicó un cuestionario desarrollado por el grupo de investigación GRIINSAN de la Facultad de Nutrición y Dietética de la Universidad del Atlántico entre una muestra de 68 estudiantes de universidades privadas y 53 de universidad pública; los resultados se contrastaron con los registros de desempeño académico de cada uno. Resultados: el consumo diario de azúcares y grasas (<35 %), la preferencia por alimentos fritos y la no ingesta de media tarde están asociados con un desempeño académico bajo de los estudiantes de universidad pública. El consumo diario de azúcares (26,4 %) y la baja ingesta de verduras y de media tarde están asociados con un desempeño bajo entre los estudiantes de universidad privada. Conclusiones: los estudiantes con desempeño superior muestran hábitos alimentarios más saludables, con mayor consumo de frutas, verduras y media tarde.Abstract Background: Eating habits directly affect academic performance. Among young university students, it has been observed that there is an association between good eating and study habits, which has a positive impact on their academic performance. Objective: To determine the relationship between eating habits and academic performance of students from public and private universities in Chapinero, Bogota. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire developed by the GRIINSAN research group of the Faculty of Nutrition and Dietetics of the Universidad del Atlántico was applied among a sample of 68 students from private universities and 53 from public universities; the results were contrasted with the academic performance records of each student. Results: Daily consumption of sugars and fats (<35%), preference for fried foods, and the absence of mid-afternoon intake are associated with low academic performance of public university students. The daily consumption of sugars (26.4%) and the low intake of vegetables and the mid-afternoon are associated with low performance among private university students. Conclusions: Students with a higher performance show healthier eating habits, with higher consumption of fruits, vegetables, and mid-afternoons.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: los tratamientos con base en medicamentos contra la COVID-19 no han sido aprobados hasta la actualidad. La forma más efectiva de enfrentar este problema de salud pública es la prevención con una adecuada alimentación, medidas de higiene y protección. Los alimentos han sido históricamente utilizados por la población para mejorar su nutrición y complementar el tratamiento o prevención de enfermedades. Se conocen los diversos compuestos bioactivos de algunos alimentos, que en estudios experimentales demostraron su acción antiviral e inmunomoduladora. Objetivo: identificar los compuestos bioactivos o preparados de alimentos con potencial efecto inmunomodulador, inmunoestimulante y antiviral contra el coronavirus. Materiales y métodos: se realizó una búsqueda en Google Scholar, Scopus y en la Biblioteca Virtual de Salud en Bases de datos de Medicina Tradicional, Complementaria e Integrativa utilizando los términos food, immunomodulatory, immunostimulatory y antiviral en cuatro búsquedas sucesivas. Resultados: se obtuvieron 93 artículos y se identificó mayor evidencia sobre el efecto antiviral e inmunológico contra el coronavirus en nueve alimentos: Allium sativum, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Citrus sinensis, Zingiber officinale, Vitis vinífera, Allium cepa, Curcuma longa, Punica granatum y Sambucus nigra. Los cuatro primeros mostraron actividad contra el SARS-CoV-2. Conclusiones: se evidenció el efecto inmunológico y antiviral contra el coronavirus de nueve alimentos; sin embargo, son estudios in silico e in vitro, por ello se requiere mayor investigación preclínica y clínica que lo confirmen.Abstract Background: Up to date drug-based treatments for COVID-19 have not been approved. The most effective way to face this public health problem is prevention with adequate nutrition, hygiene, and protection measures. Food has historically been used by people to improve their nutrition and complement the treatment or prevention of diseases. The various bioactive compounds of some foods are known, which in experimental studies demonstrated their antiviral and immunomodulatory action. Objective: To identify bioactive compounds of foods or food preparations with potential immunomodulatory, immunostimulatory, and antiviral effects against coronavirus. Material and Methods: A search was carried out in Google Scholar, Scopus, and Virtual Health Library on Traditional Complementary and Integrative Medicine using the terms food, immunomodulatory, immunostimulatory, and antiviral in four successive searches. Results: 93 articles were obtained, and further evidence of antiviral and immunological effect against coronavirus was identified on nine foods: Allium sativum, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Citrus sinensis, Zingiber officinale, Vitis vinifera, Allium cepa, Curcuma longa, Punica granatum, and Sambucus nigra. The first four of them showed activity against SARS-CoV-2. Conclusions: The immunological and antiviral effect against coronavirus of nine foods was evidenced; however, they are in silico and in vitro studies, therefore it is required further preclinical and clinical research to confirm this.

    • Abstract: Resumen Antecedentes: aunque las problemáticas alimentarias afectan indistintamente a la población, ameritan reflexiones académicas que presten especial atención a los colectivos poblacionales vulnerables. El objetivo del presente artículo fue identificar los desafíos que supone la garantía del derecho a una alimentación adecuada en mujeres afrodescendientes víctimas de desplazamiento, mujeres cisgénero y población LGBTI. Reflexión: la discriminación basada en género, pertenencia étnica u otra condición tiene incidencia directa en la seguridad alimentaria y desfavorece el goce efectivo de la alimentación adecuada como un derecho fundamental. Esto pone de manifiesto la necesidad de que el Estado implemente acciones afirmativas que promuevan la igualdad real de los grupos poblacionales minoritarios. Conclusión: los principales desafíos identificados se relacionan con la necesidad de robustecer la jurisprudencia sobre el derecho a una alimentación adecuada, de modo que se logre entender como un derecho propiamente dicho; promover la movilización social como mecanismo para demandar reconocimiento, respeto y protección por parte del Estado y, por último, modificar progresivamente las circunstancias socioeconómicas de los individuos, ante un escenario en el que la capacidad de acumulación de capital los lleva a materializar su bienestar en forma diferencial, según la clase social, el género o la etnia.Abstract Background: Although food issues affect all populations, they deserve to be the subject of academic reflections that give special attention to vulnerable social groups. This article aimed to identify the challenges involved in guaranteeing the right to adequate nutrition in Afro-descendant women victims of internal displacement, cisgender women, and LGBTI people. Reflection: Discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, or some other condition has a direct impact on food security, and it puts the effective fulfillment of adequate nutrition as a fundamental right at a disadvantage. This exposes the need of demanding from the State affirmative actions that promote effective equality among minority population groups. Conclusion: The main challenges identified are related to the need to strengthen the legal framework to the right to adequate nutrition, and to understand it as a right in itself. Besides, to promote social mobilization as a mechanism to demand recognition, respect, and protection from the State, and to progressively modify the socio-economic conditions of people, in a scenario where the capacity of capital accumulation leads them to materialize their well-being in a differentiated way, according to social class, gender or ethnicity.
