Emotional well-being of women affected by diet
Women are less likely than men to experience mental well-being unless they follow a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. They require a more nutrient-rich diet than men to maintain positive emotional well-being, according to a study. A high-energy nutrient-dense diet supports brain anatomy and functionality.
The study, published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience, says that women may need a larger spectrum of nutrients to support mood, compared to men. This may explain why women are twice more likely to be diagnosed with anxiety and depression as compared to men.

â€˜Lowâ€™ and â€˜no sugarâ€™ claims in the spotlight
Â Bitter truth
The South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) has announced tightened food labelling and advertisement standards with sugar and other â€˜negative contentâ€™ claims receiving significant attention. The aim is to provide clarity to consumers.
â€˜Lowâ€™ or â€˜noâ€™ sugar claims are no longer allowed, except under strict conditions: less than 5g per 100g or less than 2.5g per 100ml of food for â€˜low-sugarâ€™ claims, and less than 0.5g per 100g or 100ml of food for â€˜no-sugarâ€™ claims. Terms such as â€˜natural sugarâ€™ have also been disallowed for being misleading. More specific labelling of sweeteners has been directed in the new regulations.
