World Food Day is celebrated every year on 16 October to commemorate the founding of FAO in 1945. Events are organized in over 150 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. These events promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.

World Food Day is a chance to show commitment to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 – to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. It’s also a day for us to celebrate the progress made towards reaching #ZeroHunger – WHO

New Issue | Recent Patents on Food, Nutrition & Agriculture ; Volume 10 Issue 2


Recent Patents on Food, Nutrition & Agriculture publishes full-length/mini reviews and research articles, and guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in all fields of food science & technology, nutrition and agricultural science & technology. A selection of important and recent patents in the areas covered is also included in the journal. The journal is essential reading for all researchers involved in food, nutrition and agricultural sciences and technology. The journal also covers recent research (where patents have been registered) in fast emerging technologies related to food additives, micro & macro-molecular food supplements, edible alternatives, food technology, nutraceuticals, healthy diet, nutritional value, calorie intake, malnutrition & related diseases, plant derivatives, agricultural technology and products, crop improvement and safety issues related to food, nutrition & agriculture.

EDITOR’S CHOICE ARTICLE – Patents for the Morphophysiological Quality of Seedlings and Grafted Peach Trees: Effects of Nutrient Solution and Substrates

Journal Name: Recent Patents on Food, Nutrition & Agriculture

Author(s): Aline G. Souza*, Oscar J. Smiderle, Ricardo E. Muraro, Valmor J. Bianchi.




Graphical Abstract:




Background: This study aimed to verify the influence of different substrates with and without addition of nutrient solution on the roostocks production of Capdeboscq cultivar and grafted peach plants of ‘Chimarrita’ scion.

Methods: In the first experiment, the height and stem diameter of the rootstocks were evaluated every two weeks, up to 90 days after transplanting (DAT). At 90 DAT, dry weight of shoots and roots, total dry mass and Dickson Quality Index were evaluated. In the second experiment, seedlings of ‘Capdeboscq’ were grafted with ‘Chimarrita’ scion. The growth of the scions and the percentage of living grafts were evaluated. At 146 DAT, the stem diameter of the scions, the SPAD index, the chlorophyll and nitrogen balance index were evaluated.

Discussion: The greatest mean values for the stem diameter of seedlings of the cv. Capdeboscq were obtained with the substrates T4 (5.53 mm); T2 (5.47 mm) and T1 (5.23 mm) with addition of nutrient solution, with seedlings reaching the plant standards according to the ordinance number 173 of May 27th of 1984, which recommends that rootstocks have to have a minimum stem diameter of 5.0 mm. Thus, the substrates which received the addition of nutrient solution, except the soil substrate, were adequate considering the rules that governing the peach tree production in Brazilian Nurserioes.

Conclusion: The nutrient solution already avaliblabe for Recent patents is highly indicated to obtain seedlings of ‘Capbdboscq’ rootstocks with high mophophysiological quality in less time during nursery cycle of plant production. The largest stem diameter for ‘Capdeboscq’ was obtained with substrate 35% sand + 15% soil + 50% bovine manure (5.53 mm); 75% sand + 25% soil (5.47 mm) and 100% sand (5.23 mm) with addition of nutrient solution. The best morphophysiological characteristics of ‘Chimarrita’ plants grafted on ‘Capdeboscq’ seedlings was obtained with the use of substrates 75% sand + 25% soil and 35% sand + 15% soil + 50% bovine manure, whose plants reached a morphological standard for sale, in just four and a half months DAT, that is 56 days after grafting.

“Consumer Perception of Sustainability Attributes in Organic and Local Food”


Journal Name: Recent Patents on Food, Nutrition & Agriculture

Author(s): Annunziata Azzurra*, Mariani Angela.





Background: Although sustainable food consumption is gaining growing importance on the international agenda, research on this subject is still quite fragmented and most studies analyse single aspects of sustainable food consumption with particular reference to environmental sustainability. In addition, the literature highlights the need to take account of the strong heterogeneity of consumers in studying sustainable behaviour. Identifying consumer segments with common profiles, needs and values is essential for developing effective communication strategies to promote sustainability in food consumption.

National Nutrition Week 2018!




“We all know that National Nutrition Week is being observed from 1st to 7th September. The main objective of this event highlights the importance to learn and spread awareness about the importance of child nutrition. Moreover, this week is surrounded by the notion that is to intensify awareness generation on the importance of nutrition for health,which directly and indirectly puts significant impact on the productivity, development and economic growth, eventually affecting the Nation’s Development”
