Title What does the digital press talk about when it talks about nutrition? An analysis of elpais.com and lavanguardia.com during 20171 Summary News on nutrition has become a regular feature on the media agenda. This paper analyses characteristics of texts on this topic published during 2017 in the digital editions of El País and La Vanguardia, the two newspapers with the widest circulation in Spain. The study looked in greater depth at aspects such as the main topics being addressed, authorship, genres and headlines of the texts, framing, sources and the number of comments from readers. The two chosen newspapers reveal considerable differences in matters such as quantity of sources used or the number of comments that are generated by this type of news. The conclusions from this study include the appearance of specific sections dedicated to nutrition and a shortfall in journalistic specialisation in this field. Keywords Nutrition, online newspapers, framing, sources, journalistic genres.
