Report on food classification: the concept “Ultraprocessed”

The term “Ultra-processed” has become fashionable in certain circles related to nutrition. This term is generating much confusion in consumer groups and in the food production sector that its interpretation generates controversy. This document analyzes the reason for this confusion.

Fundación Triptolemos has prepared the “Report on the frontal labeling of food: nutritional traffic lights, Nutri-Score and others” in order to help articulate the food system with scientific criteria around issues of interest to society. The labeling of packaged foods is a universal concern present in the national legislation of most countries and is a highly topical issue. In Spain, a debate will open shortly.

Triptolemos Foundation Statement

We denounce the fake news and all those commercial strategies that in different ways question the rigor of the rules and legislation. The objective of the initiative is to raise society’s awareness of its consequences.


The current challenge of agriculture is to ensure sustainability, being aware that in the next half century we have to produce as much as in the previous ten thousand years, having to worry, at the same time, about the improvement of crop resilience, in a unquestionable scenario of climate change. The World Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) urges us to achieve Food Security, understood as the situation in which all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient food, safe and nutritious, to satisfy their nutritional needs and preferences, in order to lead an active and healthy life.

The Triptolemos Foundation has developed a model that allows the Global Food System TRIPTOLEMOS Index (ITRIn) to be quantified, through previously defined parameters. The model allows the forecast and comparison between food systems in different countries and territories. The model has been recognized by UNESCO with the grant of the Chair “Science and Innovation for Sustainable Development: Global Food Production and Safety”
