The video series of PROMISS Masterclasses was released on the PROMISS Youtube Channel.
The short explainer videos to help the food industry and SMEs in developing products for older adults:
- What is protein energy malnutrition?
- What are dietary proteins?
- How much proteins do older adults need?
- What is the protein intake of older adults?
- How sustainable is dietary protein?
- What protein sources do older consumers prefer?
- The Stage-Gate© model
As video 1 – 6 can also be very interesting for stakeholder groups other than industry (like older persons, health professionals, policy makers, dietitians, researchers…) the English subtitles were translated in Dutch, French, German, Spanish and Finish.

The updated version of the protein screener is now live!
In addition to updated content and layout, it’s now possible to select if you are an older person or a health care professional/researcher using the screener.
The protein screener is currently available in English, Dutch and Finnish.
A cohort study key for the research in PROMISS was LASA – The Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam, a cohort consisting of over 3,000 older people aged 55 years and over from the Netherlands. LASA started in 1991 with the aim to determine physical, emotional, cognitive and social predictors and consequences of ageing, and its data collection is still ongoing.
Based on it, PROMISS was developing and validating a short food questionnaire to screen for low protein intake in community-dwelling older people, the Protein Screener 55+ (Pro55+).
LASA Data on 1348 older men and women (in the age range 56-101 years) were used to develop the Pro55+ and data of 563 older men and women (55-71 years) of the Dutch HEalthy LIfe in an Urban Setting (HELIUS) study were used for external validation.
