The Relevance of Nutraceuticals in 2022 and Beyond: A Socio-Analytical Perspective



Sasha de Beausset Aparicio, B.A., M.Sc. is a Nutritional Anthropologist, researcher, writer, and entrepreneur. She has a passion for learning about and communicating the complexities of experiences of health and eating in human history and in the present. Her areas of interest in research and practice include food and nutrition culture, public health and nutrition, trauma-informed health, applied anthropology, and the science of health behaviors and behavior change.    


Humans have long had an interest in the impact of food properties on health and well-being. At the turn of the century, there was an explosion of interest in nutraceuticals due to the identification of the health benefits of food-based components, and their potential for exploitation in the food, supplement, and pharmaceutical industries. The identification of specific components in foods that provide benefits to human health changed the way the biomedical model of health perceives what we eat.

As of 2022, an entire generation of people is growing up in a world where the concept of nutraceuticals is a given. Using a historical, and socio-analytical perspective this webinar explores how knowledge generation and dissemination about nutraceuticals has impacted health behaviors and ventures to project what is on the horizon for nutraceutical understanding and applications of nutraceuticals.
