  • Processed Food Documentary - Processed Food vs. Nutritional Needs

    Processed Food Documentary: Processed Food vs. Nutritional Needs. The human body runs on food. Once, food shortage was the major concern. After the second world war, technological advances in food production led to a new era, that was characterized by an overabundance of inexpensive food, and relatively little physical activity. In the decades that followed, other sociocultural shifts continued to contribute to the changing way we ate. Women who had previously controlled most of the average family's food preparation now entered the workforce in significant numbers. And the processed food industry began to capitalize on our need for fast, convenient food. This meant that fewer meals were being cooked at home. And since convenience foods were generally higher in calories than home-...

  • 3D-printing with living organisms "could transform the food industry"

    Food designer Chloé Rutzerveld has developed a concept for "healthy and sustainable" 3D-printed snacks that sprout plants and mushrooms for flavour. Rutzerveld's Edible Growth project consists of 3D-printed shapes containing a mixture of seeds, spores and yeast, which will start to grow after only a few days. "Edible growth is exploring how 3D printing could transform the food industry," she says in the movie. "It is about 3D printing with living organisms, which will develop into a fully grown edible." Each of the basket-like 3D-printed structures, which Rutzerveld presented at Dutch Design Week 2014, contains an edible centre of agar – a gelatinous substance that enables the seeds and spores to sprout. As the plants and mushrooms grow, the flavour also develops, transforming into wha...

    Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods. But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food system was co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy, sustainably-produced food. Fortunately for America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led by Alice Waters–voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local-sustainable-organic food movement which has brought back taste and var...

    The relentless meatification of diets is a momentous but wildly under-appreciated aspect of modernity. The average person on earth annually consumes nearly twice as much meat as occurred just a half century ago, during a period when the human population leaped from roughly 3 billion to over 7 billion people. On the current course, there will be more than 9 billion people by 2050 consuming an average of more than 50 kg (over 110 pounds) of meat per year, with huge disparities between rich and poor and the fastest growth occurring in the middle. Roughly 70 percent of global meat production by volume comes from pigs and chickens alone, and the industrial production of these two species, led by chickens, is expected to account for almost all further growth.

Even if you are one of the ones who does pay attention, food companies aren't always transparent when they design their labels.Ingredients are listed according to volume with the one at the top being the most prevalent in the product, and so on. Look out for sugar at the top of the list. The higher up it is, the more sugar there is in the food. Beware the many names for sugar though. High fructose corn syrup and evaporated can juice might not sound like sugar, but that's exactly what they are. By separating up the variations of sugar in a product, it is listed much lower than if they were added together as 'sugar' in itself. It means that the company can make their product seem healthy by manipulating which ingredients are higher up the list. Number Four: Gluten-free is all the rage with people striving for good digestive health. In America, nearly a third of the population avoids gluten in their diet. As well as being allergic to gluten, known as celiac disease, it is quite common to have an intolerance to it. You have to watch out for foods advertised as gluten-free though as they are not always very good for you. Often a bunch of sugar is added, and the gluten is substituted with unhealthy high glycemic starches, such as from corn, tapioca and potato. Number Three: It's become common knowledge that foods which use the whole of the grain are healthier than alternatives.In fact, there is nothing to say that eating food rich is whole grains is any more healthy than not eating the grains. They are healthier than non-whole grain foods however. A lot of cereal is advertised as being a whole grain food. There's a difference between whole grains and mushed up whole grains though. These cereals do have all of the grain in them, but the fact that it's as flour means that any health benefits of eating the whole grain is lost. In fact, they act in the same way as refined grains, raising blood sugar quickly and causing a sugar slump afterwards. Just having whole grains doesn't make something healthy. It's highly likely that there are all sorts of unhealthy additions too, such as sugar. Number Two: Labels are there to give information about what's in the product. It's quite common for companies to advertise that their food is trans fat free, but what this means might not be what you would expect it to. Trans fat free only means that the food has less that half a gram per serving. That's not none, despite what the label says. You can find out if your favourite products have trans fats in them by looking for hydrogenated fat on the ingredients menu. This is another name for trans fat. Just because something has no - or low - trans fat doesn't mean it's healthy. Vegetable oils aren't so good for you either. Number One: When fat became demonised by the healthy eating advocates the result was processed foods with some or all of the fat taken out. The irony is that these manufactured foods are not at all good for you. Often the taste is affected when the fat is removed. To counteract the lack of taste, chemicals and sugar are added. In fact, it's not the fat we should be avoiding but the sugar, making supposedly healthier low-fat foods less healthy than the full-fat versions. Thanks for watching!

Australians are getting fatter. What influences our food choices? How does our food system support or undermine our health? And what can we do about it? In this informative and engaging talk, Dr Phillip Baker examines some of the less obvious influences on what we eat and why, and asks what role regulation can legitimately play in addressing some of the problems in our food system. Phil­lip is a Research Fel­low at the School of Reg­u­la­tion and Global Gov­ernance, at the Aus­tralian National Uni­vers­ity in Can­berra. His research focuses on under­stand­ing the polit­ics of food, nutri­tion and pub­lic health. This work brings key ques­tions into play, such as: who has the power to shape our food choices as indi­vidu­als, fam­il­ies, com­munit­ies and soci­et­ies? Is food choice a mat­ter for the indi­vidual only and healthy eat­ing simply a mat­ter of per­sonal respons­ib­il­ity? Or is the way we eat shaped more by factors out­side of indi­vidual con­trol, such as the way we organ­ise our food sys­tems and eco­nomy? How can we as a soci­ety struc­ture our food sys­tems so as to pro­mote food choices that are good for people, anim­als and the planet? Phil­lip has a PhD from the National Centre for Epi­demi­ology and Pop­u­la­tion Health, ANU. He has worked in a num­ber of pub­lic health roles includ­ing at the World Health Organ­iz­a­tion.

Food designer Chloé Rutzerveld has developed a concept for "healthy and sustainable" 3D-printed snacks that sprout plants and mushrooms for flavour. Rutzerveld's Edible Growth project consists of 3D-printed shapes containing a mixture of seeds, spores and yeast, which will start to grow after only a few days. "Edible growth is exploring how 3D printing could transform the food industry," she says in the movie. "It is about 3D printing with living organisms, which will develop into a fully grown edible." Each of the basket-like 3D-printed structures, which Rutzerveld presented at Dutch Design Week 2014, contains an edible centre of agar – a gelatinous substance that enables the seeds and spores to sprout. As the plants and mushrooms grow, the flavour also develops, transforming into what Rutzerveld claims is a fresh, nutritious and tasty snack after only a few days. "As it comes out of the 3D printer you can really see the straight lines of the technology," she says. "But as it develops, you can see organic shapes. You can see the stages of growth and the development of taste and flavour." The aim of the project, which Rutzerveld developed in collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology and research organisation TNO, was to investigate ways that 3D printing could be used in the food industry. "By 3D printing food you can make the production chain very short, the transport will be less, there is less land needed," says Rutzerveld."But also you can experiment with new structures. You can surprise the consumer with new food and things that haven't been done before."

But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food system was co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy, sustainably-produced food. Fortunately for America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led by Alice Waters–voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local-sustainable-organic food movement which has brought back taste and variety to our tables. FOOD FIGHT is a fascinating look at how American agricultural policy and food culture developed in the 20th century, and how the California food movement has created a counter-revolution against big agribusiness.

Food politics are the political aspects of the production, control, regulation, inspection, distribution and consumption of food. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0520275969/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0520275969&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=81cd85511a15829f73d3399ded597a41 The politics can be affected by the ethical, cultural, medical and environmental disputes concerning proper farming, agricultural and retailing methods and regulations. A cultural backlash against an increasingly mechanized food industry has taken a number of different forms. Local food is a loosely defined term that describes a movement to shift food expenditures by individuals, families, community organizations, schools, restaurants, and other institutions from foods produced and shipped long distances by larger corporate entities to regional farmers and other local producers of food. Small farming interests, relatively heterogeneous products and short supply chains characterize local food markets, though there is no agreed-upon measure of the distances that constitute “local.” Community-supported agriculture is a mechanism for connecting consumers with local farmers.[25] Farm-to-table efforts are also part of the local food movement. Meatless Monday is a public health awareness campaign encouraging individuals and families to eat a meat-free diet at least once each week. Launched in 2003 through the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, its focus is on preventable diseases associated with excessive meat consumption [26] but the campaign has also been incorporated by many concerned about sustainable agriculture and the environment.[27] Slow Food is an international movement founded in Italy in 1986, with Slow Food USA established in 2000. The organization stands in opposition to “the standardization of taste and culture, and the unrestrained power of food industry multinationals and industrial agriculture.”[28] Among those influential in the food movement in the United States are writers, including Michael Pollan and Marion Nestle, and celebrity chefs such as Alice Waters, Mario Batali and Jamie Oliver. Popular books and movies on contemporary topics in food include Fast Food Nation, The Omnivore's Dilemma and the documentary Food, Inc.. In 2011, the president of the American Farm Bureau Federation referred to this influential group as “self-appointed food elitists” and the Washington Post published an op-ed from Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, defending the work he and colleagues have done to improve food systems in the United States. Offering government food assistance to the lowest income Americans dates back to the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and has continued into the 21st century.[34] In FY 2011, the budget for the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, which is responsible for the major feeding programs, was $107 billion. The largest single food assistance program in the country is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the provisions for which are contained in a Farm Bill that is re-authorized by Congress and signed by the president every five years. Benefits to SNAP recipients cost approximately $75 billion in 2012. Largely uncontroversial for most of its history, the SNAP program was targeted for major cuts by members of the House of Representatives in the 2012 Farm Bill re-authorization attempt.[35] House leaders also endeavored to separate the SNAP program from the Farm Bill, splitting the long-standing coalition of urban and rural legislators who traditionally backed the renewals of funding for the Farm Bill every five years.[36] Increases in the size of the SNAP caseload during the early 2000s were associated with increases in the unemployment rate and with a number of policy changes made to the program in many states.[37] A series of six measures to better understand employment trends developed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, three of which are more conservative estimates of unemployment and three of which define it more broadly, all showed correlations with SNAP participation. In particular, it was suggested that longer-term unemployment results in the heaviest utilization of SNAP benefits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_politics

New Delhi, Feb 04 (ANI): Being natural and chemical free, are the two aspects which people in India look for their eating habits today…Same is the case for Amit and Mridhu Mahajan, who believe that organic market has come a long way, developing its space in the national market.

They believe that the trend of health consciousness among consumers has led to bring upsurge in the organic food sector. With variant income groups and region of the country, consumers for organic food products are increasing day by day with their acute awareness from health hazards of chemicals and pesticides.

And everywhere we are urged to eat organic: it's more nutritious, pesticide-free, and protects animals and the environment. At least, that's what we are being told – or rather, sold. And thanks to a lot of very effective marketing, many people believe it. That's why, when researchers at Cornell University gave study participants a choice between two identical items, one labeled "organic" and one "regular," the participants confidently declared the "organic" choice to be lower in calories and more nutritious. They also said they'd pay 16 to 23 percent more for the organic choice. But these beliefs about organic food have nothing to do with reality. In 2012, Stanford University's Center for Health Policy did the most comprehensive comparison and found organic foods are not nutritionally superior to conventional alternatives. And a more recent review of 20 years of research into animal products by Italian researchers confirmed these findings. The authors concluded: "Scientific studies do not show that organic products are more nutritious and safer than conventional foods." That's fine, you might say. You don't eat organic foods just because of the health benefits, but because you care about the treatment of farm animals and of the environment. Unfortunately, the facts don't support these beliefs either. Animals on organic farms are not generally healthier than regular farms. A five-year US study of dairy farms showed that "health outcomes [for animals on organic farms] are similar to conventional dairies." And the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety reached a similar conclusion. It found "no difference in objective disease occurrence" on organic dairy farms as compared to conventional dairies. And while pigs and poultry on organic farms may enjoy better access to open areas, this freedom, studies show, also increases their exposure to parasites, pathogens and predators. As for the environment, yes, organic farming will mean that in any one field, a farmer will use less energy and create fewer greenhouse gases. But there's a problem here. By forgoing fertilizers and pesticides, organic farming is much, much less efficient than standard farming, which means that organic farmers need much more land to grow the same amount of food. A major study in Europe found that to produce the same gallon of milk organically, you need 59% more land. To produce meat, you need 82% more land. And for crops, it’s more than 200%. And more land for agriculture means less land for nature. If U.S. agricultural production was entirely organic, it would mean we would need to convert an area bigger than the size of California entirely to farmland. Economically, the lower productivity of organics means we have to commit more resources - land, labor and capital. The total cost to the US economy of going organic would run to about $200 billion annually. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/organic-food-worth-cost

The relentless meatification of diets is a momentous but wildly under-appreciated aspect of modernity. The average person on earth annually consumes nearly twice as much meat as occurred just a half century ago, during a period when the human population leaped from roughly 3 billion to over 7 billion people. On the current course, there will be more than 9 billion people by 2050 consuming an average of more than 50 kg (over 110 pounds) of meat per year, with huge disparities between rich and poor and the fastest growth occurring in the middle. Roughly 70 percent of global meat production by volume comes from pigs and chickens alone, and the industrial production of these two species, led by chickens, is expected to account for almost all further growth. The industrial grain-oilseed-livestock complex occupies a large share of the world’s arable land, with soaring animal populations concentrated in dense enclosures and tied to significant flows of feedstuffs.
