Food-based analyses of the healthiness, environmental sustainability and affordability of processed and ultra-processed foods are lacking. This paper aimed to determine how ultra-processed and processed foods compare to fresh and minimally processed foods in relation to nutritional quality, greenhouse gas emissions and cost on the food and food gro...

According to UK Government targets, greenhouse gas emissions(GHGE) should now have been reduced by 37%⁽¹⁾. Food consumption is responsible for <30% of the environmental impact of households(Reference Notarnicola, Tassielli and Renaulli2–Reference Garnett3). Moving to diets with lower GHGE will require shifts in eating patterns by consumers, yet man...

Beef and sheep products represent the largest emitters of greenhouse gases within the meat group. One way of encouraging Scottish households to substitute purchasing lower carbon footprint meat products such as chicken is through a carbon consumption tax. In this article, the effects of such a tax were studied using a dynamic per capita error corre...

However, this convention may not be compatible with the purpose of consequential LCA, which is to model the actual consequences of the decision at hand. T...
