Estimating procedure for the macronutrients latent prices in food security models
AbstractA model that allows the estimation of the latent prices of animal proteins, vegetal proteins, fats and carbohydrates that come from staple food is developed. This research opens a path for developing food security models that take into account not only the calories intake but the nutritional availability and requirements of macro and micro nutrients at a country level. The nutritionist interested in determining the economic feasibility of the diets or the social investigator who may want to address more complex questions has now a powerful tool of analysis.
