Learning objectives

The main objective of the course is to provide adequate knowledge on the founding principles of the concept of "proper nutrition" and on their use in food and lifestyles planning strategies in healthy subjects in physiological conditions (health promotion). At the end of the course, the student must have knowledge on:
- estimates of individual needs by sex and age in healthy subjects in basic and in activity conditions in physiological conditions (adult and elderly) (use of LARN or Energy and nutrient levels for the Italian population and other specific tools / methods );
- the main nutritional characteristics of the various food groups; their use in food planning based on the estimated needs for healthy and proper nutrition.

Examination methods

Multiple choice and open written test to verify the overall degree of knowledge of the subject of this course.




Prerequisites and basic notions

Since this is a first-year, first-semester exam, there are no specific prerequisites different from those required for admission to the degree program

Program

LARN: METABOLISM AND ENERGY BALANCE
Energy balance: balance between energy expenditure and energy requirements. Definition energy requirements. Energy value foods.
Assessment of energy requirements. Harris-Benedict, WHO, Owen, Mifflin, Fleisch, Toronto predictive equations.
LARN
ENERGY: Definition. General considerations. Physiology and metabolism (MB-TID-LAF).
Energy requirements in the adult, energy requirements in the elderly.
NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS. RECOMMENDED ASSUMPTION LEVELS of energy and NUTRIENTS.
Breakdown of nutritional requirements: macro- and micronutrients.

PROTEINS and Amino Acids. Protein allocation of requirements: rational. Protein requirement allocation in proportion to energy requirements. Requirement for growth and first six months of life. requirement for gestation and lactation. Needs in the elderly population. Requirement in AA and protein quality. Correction for protein quality. LARN TABLES.

LIPIDS: Adult and elderly lipid requirements and pregnant and lactating women. Dietary fats in the body. Essentiality of dietary fats in the body (essential fatty acids). Effects of heat treatments on nutritive value. LARN TABLES.

CARBOHYDRATES and fiber: Energy requirements and value. Role of CHOs in the diet. Main carbohydrates: simple and complex. Starch: nutritional aspects Simple sugars: nutritional distinction between intrinsic and added.

QUANTITATIVE PORTION STANDARDS.
Definition of portion size. Recommended portions of various foods according to energy requirements. Food composition: characteristics of the CREA (formerly INRAN) or BDA-IEO database and how to use it. Example of using the database

INTAKE EVALUATION: Methodologies for surveying food consumption. Criteria for selection of appropriate methodologies, assessment of food intake by prospective and retrospective methods, disaggregation of food into nutrients. Nutrition/food education: what tools we have at our disposal and how to use them: Dietary Recall, Food Diaries, Photographic Food Atlas, Dietometer, Food Questionnaires. methodological basis of validation, application and interpretation of results.

Recupero degli Obblighi Formativi Aggiuntivi

La verifica del possesso delle conoscenze di base (saperi minimi) necessarie per poter frequentare il corso con profitto avviene, contestualmente alla prova di ammissione, sostenendo un TOLC-B su quesiti di Biologia, Chimica, Fisica, Matematica di base, Inglese. Nel caso in cui nel TOLC-B non vengano raggiunti punteggi superiori al 60% del punteggio massimo previsto per una qualsiasi delle materie previste, gli obblighi formativi aggiuntivi (OFA) così individuati saranno comunicati allo studente al momento dell’immatricolazione. Corsi integrativi delle cinque materie saranno organizzati nel primo semestre con frequenza obbligatoria. L’assolvimento dell’obbligo è requisito obbligatorio per l’ammissione agli esami del primo semestre.

Modalità di frequenza

La frequenza dell'attività formativa è obbligatoria ed è verificata dai Docenti, i quali non ammettono lo studente all’esame qualora le frequenze alle attività formative dell’insegnamento integrato siano inferiori al 75%. Lo studente che, nel corso dell’anno accademico, non abbia ottenuto l’attestazione di frequenza ad almeno il 75% delle ore previste per ciascun insegnamento, sia rispetto alla frequenza, sia al conseguimento degli obiettivi formativi è iscritto nel successivo anno accademico, anche in soprannumero, come ripetente, con l’obbligo di frequenza dei corsi per i quali non abbia ottenuto l’attestazione.
