In the Europe of 2060, one in three inhabitants will be over 65. The form of consumption will therefore change, and older people will become the engine of the so-called silver economy. According to reports by the World Health Organization (WHO), most of the diseases that older people suffer are because of lack of a proper diet. Therefore, the role of nutrition to promote a healthy aging is very important to prevent NCDs and additional nutritious food sources are required to feed the growing population sustainably.
