You can find the following profiles in the app:

Dietary strategies to prevent high blood pressure
The main factor in the development or prevention of high blood pressure is the salt content of our food. Reducing the salt intake can have a tremendous impact on cardiovascular health. However, several other factors need to be considered, too, such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin C, fibers, antioxidants, fructose and alcohol. The profile "Healthy fats" is an ideal addition to this profile.

Healthy fats
The focus of this profile is the optimal supply of omega-3 fatty acids. Foods with an ideal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio are highlighted and you can easily spot foods which contain a high proportion of healthy fats.
