What is GOOD food- Nutrient Density or Integrity?
So what food is good for you? A few years ago I wanted to explore the idea of testing our meat for nutrient density compared to supermarket beef, although there are now gadgets you can use to scan meat and other products with infrared to check the density of nutrients… interestingly this does not mean the food will be good for YOU… in a conversation I had with Walter Jehne he suggested that the only claim farmers who grow chemical free food- clean soil, clean plants, clean animals/produce.. is that their produce has nutrient integrity as no chemicals have broken down the molecular structure and nutrients within the food. However nutrient density relies on the gut health of the person eating the food.. the better gut health we have, the more nutrients we absorb from the food we eat- so good gut health is the determining factor of whether the food you eat is nutrient dense or not.
