I visited the Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells last month and took the opportunity to catch up with fellow Nuffield Scholars and talk about my study topic ‘vegetable production for specific nutritional need’.
The food hall was buzzing with activity and it was interesting to see the growth in plant based food products, which leads me to my latest video.
Here I talk about what led me to my current career path and the problem that we have of low nourishment due to our food system. How can it be solved though?
I would like your help to identify vegetable products which have successfully been sold as ‘nutritious foods’ for example beetroot juice as a recovery drink for athletes, and vegetable products with specific high nutrient levels for example; mushrooms with enhanced vitamin D levels or spinach enriched with selenium.
