The SAIN, LIM is a system of nutritional profiling developed within the Anses. This profiling was based on the idea that every food can bring both positive and negative nutrients.
This is why this profiling is divided into two independent scores: the SAIN first, which represents the product’s “positive” nutrients and then the LIM, which represents the products “negative” nutrients and both scores giving a global expression of the product’s quality. The objective is to determine a global score of the food’s nutritional quality.
The SAIN, LIM can be represented graphically, displaying nutritional positioning of the product. This tool, proposed by the CTCPA, allows products, notably processed products, to be positioned in relationship to each other and to identify the leverages for improvement.
