Dan Kittredge: Defining Food Quality: Tools, Science and Collaboration USB/CD
How do you define “healthy” food, and how do you maintain the quality of that food through eco-farming systems? Dan Kittredge will discuss some of the key principles and tools for successful bionutrient-rich food production, diving into Brix and other indicators and metrics, as well as soil and plant health considerations to support nutrient-dense crop production.
Dan Kittredge has been an organic farmer for more than 30 years, and is the founder and executive director of the Bionutrient Food Association, an 8-year old non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “increase quality in the food supply.” His Real Food Campaign has engineered the prototype of a hand-held consumer spectrometer that is designed to test nutrient density at point of purchase, thereby empowering the consumer to choose for nutrient quality.
