Information about the food we eat surrounds us, yet much of it is low on evidence and high on hype. To help counter this misinformation, our team of self-proclaimed “food nerds” is focused on the facts. We cut through the clutter, sharing the science behind the food that lands in our carts, homes and bellies.
It’s no secret that some processed foods are calorie-dense and contain greater amounts of sugar, salt and fats than are recommended. Overconsumption of these foods in our diets can increase our risk of chronic disease including diabetes and obesity.
But science also shows us that modern food production and processing techniques contribute to the availability of safe, affordable, nutrient-dense and healthful foods. So the next time you encounter something about a food that makes you pause, process the science behind it!
