Let’s imagine the food of the future.
Did you know that scientists are working to help make the foods you already eat do amazing
things for your health? This looks and taste like the same old broccoli
you have always loved, but scientists are finding ways to make this broccoli love you
back. Broccoli naturally contains glucoraphanin which scientists are studying it make reduce
cholesterol, cancer risk and help to keep your heart healthy. Super broccoli was naturally
bred to pack in more glucoraphanin two to three times more per serving.
Don’t like broccoli? How about tomatoes? Researchers have found a way to take in important
anti-oxidants and anthocyanins genes from berries and put them into these purple tomatoes.
And lastly, normal grains and are being transformed to pack in more of the goodness that we need
to become supercharged grains. We consume a lot of grains and so do our animals. Using
optimised grains produces far less waste and the harvest contains more of the nutritional
stuff. The food of the future could bring us more
health-promoting compounds in every bite – all thanks to science… and plants.
