Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System

Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System


At Nestlé we are constantly
working to improve our products. They are supossed to be tasty and fit in a balanced diet. We have developed strict criteria:
The Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System. With that we analyse and evaluate all of our products This happens in five steps, at the example of a soup In the first step, we ask ourselves: What is the relevance
of the product in the diet? Is it, for example, a main course or
a starter? What are the main ingredients and how is
the product manufactured? For our soup the answer to
this question is: It is a starter, contains vegetables and grains as main ingredients, and is made of pre-dried ingredients. In step 2, we determine, which
nutrients and ingredients we want to closely focus on. We don’t want to exceed a maximum value for certain nutritional values Other ingredients and nutritional values, however, are supposed to contain in larger quantities. In terms of our soup this means that we want more grain, vitamins and minerals, but at the same time
less fat, sugar and sodium. In the third step, we ask ourselves: Who consumes our soup and how much is the recommended daily amount of
nutrients for these target groups? Our soup is mainly eaten by adults, so the recommendations for adults apply. In step 4, we deal with the question of an average portion of product. This information is important because we evaluate the product as it is consumed. The average portion our soup is about 250 milliliters, this is a plate. Then we evaluate in Step 5: If our soup fulfills the determinated target per serving, it will reach the so-called Nestlé Nutritional Foundation. If not, for example, if it is too much salt in the soup, the recipe is revised and the sodium content is reduced. And so we will continue working to improve our products constantly.
