QA Webinar with Dan Kittredge, Bionutrient Food Association – January 27th 2021
Thank you so much for joining this QA webinar with Dan Kittredge of the Bionutrient Food Association . Thank you Dan for joining and thank you all for your great questions and I hope we could cover most of them!
Some topics we discussed:
- why Dan is building this data set in the public
- the next steps of the Bionutrient meter
- does it make sense to focus on measuring the negative stuff on food?
- Dan’s vision for the food and agriculture system in 2030
- does the quality of the seed matters when looking at nutrients?
- the potential of water
- why Biophotones have so many possibilities
- how much does it take to set up a lab
- does nutrient density vary in meat as much as produce?
- does polycropping/crop diversity show up yet as an important variable?
- how does biodynamic produce compare to organic? (not enough data yet)
- what is the impact of the (long or short) supply chain on nutrients?
- how tight is the linkage between nutrient density and food as medicine?
- what is the impact of heirloom seeds?
- how do we make sure everyone (but especially people in the lowest socioeconomic brackets) have access to nutrient dense food?
Questions we didn’t get to:
- do we need less food when it is more nutrient dense?
- are there any big ag or pharmaceutical companies trying to stop this research or this movement?
- how does this instrument may impact the pricing basis of food? Is it possible that food will be sold on some sort of $/nutrient basis rather than $/kg?
