Nutrient Density of Foods - with Stacey Curcio

Show notes

In Episode 42 Stacey Curcio returns to pick up the conversation around Nutrient Density. Stacey's previous episode, Episode 24 - A Regenerative Model of Health, is a good accompaniment to this episode so go have a listen to it if you haven't already!

Some things touched on in this conversation include:

  • What is the definition of ‘nutrient density’?

  • Why is nutrient density important?

  • The role of secondary metabolites in nutrient density of foods

  • The relationship between nutrient density and phytochemical content 

  • Has the nutrient density of food declined over time, and if so, what has caused this?

  • How do different farming practices (i.e. conventional vs organic) influence nutrient density for both plants and animal products?
