Defining Food Quality: Tools, Science and Collaboration

The Bionutrient Food Association and Real Food Campaign have embarked on an open source project to 1) develop a hand-held spectrometer that can be used at point of purchase to test relative nutrient density, 2) populate a database sufficient to define relative nutrient density, and 3) populate a database sufficient to identify causal dynamics in the production of nutrient dense crops. We are partnering with farmers, organizations, companies and universities in this project. Those interested in an update on the progress of this project, or in collaboration will find this workshop valuable.
