In this 1st of three calls I interview Dan Kittredge. Since we are both passionate about nutrient dense foods this should be a lively and enlightening call.

Executive Director of the Bionutrient Food Association and Real Food Campaign, Dan is the son of prominent leaders in the organic movement, and has been an organic farmer since childhood. His experience managing organic farms and developing sustainable agriculture techniques has connected him to farmers in Central America, Russia, India and the United States. Dan is passionate about raising the quality of nutrition in our food supply through collaboration with committed individuals, businesses, and organizations that support the value of people growing and eating really good food.

Dan will be speaking at the Call to Arms Seminar on the first day at 7:00pm on the subject of: Prepare Now for the Coming Market Standard: Nutrient Density. Dan will also be offered some time to give his perspective on the 4:30 talk about Organics, Compost, and the Great Debate that I will be sharing. Perhaps Dan and I will end that talk in a Great Debate of our own. :) So what's the great debate? Here it is: If achieving nutrient density is our number one priority should farmers be certified organic?

If you have some specific questions you would like Dan and I to address on this call please post them in the comments below. I will try to cover as many as possible.

Thanks,

Jon

    Dan,

    How dense are Indian fruits and vegetables? How do you compare them to the produce in America?

    Many Thanks.

    Hi Dan and Jon,

    As I see more and more farmers become interested in remineralization, I observe them just adding rock dusts to the soil without regard for weather what they are adding is what is actually needed. My experience in working with Jon has shown that too much, or the wrong ratios of minerals may not be what we need to produce nutrient dense foods.

    I would like to hear Dan’s perspective on this issue. Also, the remineralize.org website has great exposure to the world. Do you see a value in educating people not to simply dump rock dusts into the soil and think that this will solve the problem of nutrient deficient crops?

    Thanks,
    Nataraj

    I wanted to thank you for tonight’s call. My husband and I lived out of the country for nearly 30 years and upon returning, one of the things that stood out to us the most was the bland and tasteless food. (We really miss those mouth-watering mangos, papayas and other tropical fruits!) It took us awhile to understand that the nutrient content of fruits and vegetables had dropped significantly during those years we were gone and that we needed to work hard to have a healthy diet here in the US.

    I’m encouraged to see this growing movement toward making nutrient dense foods available in the marketplace and creating a new standard of food quality. We’re definitely behind it. We’re willing to pay premium prices for quality food that tastes good and provides the nutrition we need to stay healthy.
