7 Facts You Should Know Before Buying Organic Superfoods
Our E-book is available for free download and covers 7 facts everyone should know before buying organic superfoods.
1) The dramatic and steady decline in the quality of our food
The book highlights the rapidly deteriorating quality of our food and provides shocking UK government data on the nutrient depletion of our fresh produce over the last fifty years. It also looks at the aggressive marketing tactics used to push processed ‘convenience foods’, brimming with saturated fats, refined sugars and artificial additives, and touches on the resulting impact on our health.
2) Many so-called ‘healthy’ food products are not good for us at all
The Consumer Awareness Guide looks at how food products are often promoted as ‘healthy’ or ‘organic’, when quite the reverse is true. Many are packed with artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives, which have been added to improve the product’s shelf life, appearance or flavour or contain very little of the beneficial ingredient cited on the packaging. Our E-book alerts you to the dangers in the supermarket.
3) The growing "rawfood" trend
A candid look at the rawfood diet and its pro’s and cons. Even though there are significant benefits to a rawfood diet, such as the feeling of vitality that it infuses and the myriad health benefits it offers, it’s important to be aware that eating rawfoods in isolation can lead to serious deficiencies in certain nutrients.
4) The 9 key superfood categories
An in-depth look at superfoods, their unique versatility and what they can do for us in terms or our overall physical health and mental wellbeing. The e-book covers the 9 main superfood categories and the most essential superfoods within each.
5) 4 common nutrient deficiencies
Whilst we might normally associate nutrient deficiencies with the developing world, the National Diet and Nutrition Surveys (NDNS) conducted by the UK Government suggest that the problem is far closer to home. Did you now that over 90% of UK women have an iron intake below RNI (recommended nutritional intake), for example? Our Consumer Awareness Guide covers the 4 most common modern nutrient deficiencies and explains how you can address them. It is particularly beneficial for those who need to take special care to ensure that they receive sufficient energy and all of the essential fatty acids, essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals that their body needs, such as those following a strict vegetarian, vegan or rawfood diet.
6) An "Organic" label doesn’t guarantee that a product is 100% organic
We are increasingly insisting on food that is healthy, ethical and environmentally friendly and thus the demand for organic food is growing at an unprecedented rate. Thankfully organic foods are no longer the preserve of the wealthy – indeed our supermarket shelves appear to be overflowing with them. Unfortunately, this has resulted in significant confusion over the labelling of organic produce and what the term ‘organic’ really means. We uncover the facts about organic labelling and reveal what to look out for when buying organic produce, empowering you to make healthy choices.
