The Rise of Nutritionism

  • Nutritionism is not the same as nutrition. It is not a scientific subject but an ideology.
  • Ideologies are ways of organizing large areas of life and experience under a set of shared but unexamined assumptions.
  • For nutritionism, the widely shared but unexamined assumption is that the key to understanding food is the nutrient; foods are essentially the sum of their nutrient parts.
  • This means that to live in this ideology of eating unseen nutrients (unlike food, we don't see nutrients) you need lots of expert help.
  • Nutritionism is good for the food business but no so much for us.
