Why use SPE Consulting?
Unsurpassed culinary and nutrition experience: SPE's Executive Chef and culinary nutritionists boast over 30 years of combined nutrition, culinary and sustainability expertise in the nutrition consulting arena. Our culinary nutritionists have trained as chefs, and therefore have an unparalleled understanding of the dynamic nature and challenges of a professional kitchen.
Rock-solid scientific foundation: The SPE philosophy has been developed over 10 years through the collaboration of leading chefs, registered dietitians and SPE's Scientific Committee comprised of nutrition experts from Harvard, Tufts and Baylor. With our Scientific Committee, we have combined cutting-edge research with international health standards to create a charter of guidelines and practices that form the basis of our culinary and nutritional consulting services.
Skilled application of technology: Software-based nutrition analysis is most effective with a genuine understanding of food, cooking as well as nutrition itself. We use the latest technology which leverages thousands of food items for accurate and comprehensive analysis - including information on vitamins, minerals and fatty acids (including omega-3s). We don't just provide the numbers - we also interpret the information into a blueprint for real-world application.
Proprietary approach: SPE focuses not just on health, but also on the Sourcing, Preparing and Enhancing of food. Our approach considers ingredients, preparation and kitchen practices to accurately analyze dishes and maximize the nutritional benefit of each dish. Combined with our culinary and scientific expertise, this is what makes SPE's services truly unique.
