The New Nordic Diet - from Gastronomy to Health

The New Nordic Diet is a new food culture developed in 2009-13 with key emphasis on gastronomy, health, and environment. Major research in its effect on acceptability, behaviour and learning skills, and disease prevention have been conducted by the OPUS centre at the University of Copenhagen and the people behind the award-winning restaurant Noma in Copenhagen. This course will give the participants the opportunity to experience a healthy and palatable new food and eating concept diet “The New Nordic Diet” and an understanding of how food and diets can affect mental and physical health and ensure the foundation for a healthier life style for future generations with a regional based diet and food culture. In Denmark “the Nordic cuisine”, has expanded from food eaten at the award-winning Copenhagen restaurant Noma to home-made dishes of local ingredients of whole-grain rye bread, root vegetables, berries, fresh fish and seaweed. This course is also part of the EIT Health Programme

new nordic diet in 9 reviews

I would like the course has more information of the New Nordic Diet with recipes, but it is a very interestig This course gives better understanding in questions of human health and diet as a part of live.

It was a pleasure to learn about the New Nordic Diet and I have absorbed a lot of new information.

I enjoyed learning about dietary practices of another culture and its region :) Very informative about the New Nordic Diet itself, but lacks more detailed information about diet in general-- nutrients, vitamins, minerals etc.

This was a wonderful introduction to the New Nordic Diet and I loved the well documented research studies.

So, I loved it, yes, and I want to know more, but too much about how they planned the research and not much about the New Nordic Diet itself.

I love this course and the New Nordic Diet.

This said, I really think that the concept of the New Nordic Diet is great and should be adapted and adopted in other parts of the world!

However, it would be great to translate and upload a New Nordic diet cooking book in English, to make it available for all the students of the course.
