Nutritional profiling

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.

Examples of projects:

  • Sain, Lim – A nutritional profile used as a tool to determine the impact of processes (2012) 
  • Optimed - Adding value and optimization to the nutritional quality of traditional Mediterranean products (Draaf and Paca Region– 2011-2013)
  • Flonudep - Promotion de filières s'inscrivant dans le développement durable à travers un outil d'aide à la décision combinant trois éléments clés du marché des fruits et légumes (2010-2013)
