In this episode I interview Dan Kittredge, organic farmer and founder of the Bio Nutrient Food, an association working hard to demonstrate the connections between plant health soil, carbon sequestration, crop nutritional value, flavour and human health. 

Main take aways:

  • Plants have evolved to grow and the more we can manage our soils in a fashion so that the plants are able to do what they do well, the better it is for everybody involved.
  • There is a massive nutritional variation in food which correlates to the health of the plant, correlates to the health of the human that eats it.
  • Research on 600 carrots samples from around the US where the nutritional variation in polyphenols was 20.000%.
  • Assessing the actual health of the food we produce and let that be the real marker not the label or the marketing scheme.
  • Bio Nutrient Meter as tool that a consumer can use to test quality in real time, as in flash a light like a smartphone camera, flash at a carrot and then get a reading out which says relatively how good this is.
  • Understanding of variation in food quality, food is not uniform.
