- Question 1 of 1RC Academy 1.5
1. Question1. Brazil Big Food
(1). Unfortunately, transnational food corporations are changing dietary patterns in Brazil. For these corporations, the move into emerging markets is necessary because the market for their ultra-processed meals, snacks, and drinks is already saturated in high-income countries. Research suggests that in any country a saturation point is reached when ultra-processed products supply around 60% of total calories, as has been the case in the UK, Canada, and the US for the last two decades.
(2). In countries like the US, the general tendency is to deal with food, nutrition, and public health in isolation as matters largely of information, education, and “individual lifestyle adjustments” designed to reduce the risk of various disabilities and diseases.Correct / You marked this questionIncorrect / You marked this question
