Canada Food Guide nixes portion sizes, promotes plant based proteins

Foods that contain mostly unsaturated fat should replace foods that contain mostly saturated fat.

Part of the new guide was released today at an event in Montreal with Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor.

"[The new guide] does a great job at outlining WHAT foods Canadians should eat and HOW to eat them".

Hutchinson said the intent was not to cut dairy from the guide and pointed to examples where low-fat, low-sodium and unsweetened dairy products are listed within other recommended food categories, including suggested healthy proteins and beverages.

Reacting to the report, the Canadian Pork Council said Canadians could feel good about eating meat, such as pork, due to the health benefits.

Field, who is also National Coordinator of the Coalition for Healthy School Food, applauded the food guide.

Unlike tobacco, vaping and cannabis, Canada has no alcohol act, making it "very challenging" to launch a comprehensive strategy on things including health, pricing, advertising, and labelling, says Paradis, whose agency was set up by Parliament to counsel decision-makers. "CPMA has always been advocating for increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables by Canadians and our Half Your Plate campaign has been resonating with consumers from coast to coast to coast". A diet higher in vegetables and fruits is linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, eating more nuts or soy protein can help improve blood fat levels and processed meat has been linked to higher risks of colorectal cancer, Health Canada says.

It wasn't until 1992 that the Food Guide took proportion into account, using its graphic to emphasize that people should consume more grain products and produce than dairy items and meats.

"Dairy Farmers of Canada remains concerned that the updated Food Guide does not reflect the most recent and mounting scientific evidence available", the Dairy Farmers of Canada said in a statement shortly after the guide was unveiled this morning.

The shift to plant-based proteins doesn't match a solid North American demand for meat, livestock and meat, market analyst Kevin Grier said Tuesday.

Hutchinson said Health Canada still recommends lower-fat diary as part of a nutritious diet.

"A red meat like beef is a champion of protein, iron, zinc and B-vitamins", Parslow said.

The oversight, he said, may have been avoided if Health Canada hadn't excluded industry research from its consultation process - a move meant to avoid conflict of interest.

Instead of portion sizes, the new guide offers a plate: Half is covered with fruits and vegetables, one quarter with protein and one quarter with whole grains like rice, pasta or quinoa.

In contrast, according to Health Canada, scientists have argued that humans have no nutritional requirement for animal milk.

Heavy lobbying from well-funded food industry groups with these same concerns created controversy during the last overhaul of the Canada food guide 12 years ago. She said the industry must do a better job getting its message out.

The food guide hasn't been modified since 2007 and since then lifestyle habits have changed tremendously with many Canadians opting for less meat and more plans in their diet.

Milk, milk products and meat are instead folded in with other sources of protein, along with the suggestion to "choose plant-based protein more often".
