Ηigh-protein Main Meals Recipe Booklet

This collection of recipes is the result of the "High-Protein Meal for Older Adults Competition" organised by the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians, among dietitians and dietetic students, as a deliverable for the PROMISS dissemination work package.

The competition was supported by the European Network of Dietetic Students (ENDietS).

The High-Protein Meals Recipe Booklet aims to support dietitians in their everyday practice and inspire older adults to create healthy high-protein meals.

PROMISS was a 5-year research project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

With the European population growing older, the challenge of PROMISS was to keep an increasing number of seniors across all European countries healthy and active. In Europe, between 1/5 and half of all older adults living at home are malnourished or at risk of protein-energy malnutrition.

PROMISS aimed to better understand and ultimately prevent protein-energy malnutrition in seniors and contribute to improve active and healthy ageing.

Scientific findings from PROMISS show that older people living at home need to eat more than 1.0 g of protein per kg adjusted body weight per day as it benefits physical function. They should also consume at least 30 g of protein in one meal per day and, if possible, in two meals per day.
