An Apple in Orange's Clothing?

Food fraud is a growing concern in the global food industry. Food fraud occurs when food is deliberately adulterated, mislabeled, or misrepresented for financial gain. This can occur at any point in the supply chain, from the farm to the grocery store. The impact of food fraud can be devastating, causing harm to public health, economic damage, and damage to the reputation of food producers and suppliers.

Three Reasons You're Always Hungry - That Aren’t Related to Food. By Rhian Stephenson

It’s no surprise to see your appetite spike when your nutrition isn’t consistent, but what if you feel you’re doing (and eating) all the right things, and you’re still ravenous? Our appetite is controlled by a variety of factors, and whilst cultivating consistent and healthful food habits is one of the most important ways to stabilise cravings, there are other non-food factors that come into play.

Happy Soil, Happy Earth.

Soil plays a very important role in the long-term sustainability of any farm. It is, in essence, the foundation that holds everything together. You've heard it before — organic food is good for you. But what does organic mean, exactly? The movement has been instrumental in making society think more about the food we eat, the products we buy and the impact these have on our world. In ode to World Soil Day which was on Monday, let’s find out the implications of organic farming vs conventional farming, why it’s important and what you can do to help.

Are Artificial Sweeteners Really Such a Sweet Deal?

Low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) are becoming more and more widely used by the food industry to create sweet food and drink products that clock in at much lower sugar and calories than their traditional counterparts. LCS can be artificial (e.g aspartame) or natural (e.g stevia) but their common feature is that they are hundreds of times sweeter than normal sugar and have a negligible caloric content. This makes them a good option for those who are looking to lose weight or manage diseases like diabetes as it means they can still enjoy sweet treats and consume less sugar.

Foodsteps - All About Our Partnership With The Groundbreaking Food Environmental Impact Platform

Everyday more and more consumers want to know how their food choices impact the planet, and rightly so since food contributes 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions and is the biggest cause of biodiversity loss. Yet, it is still proving very difficult for them to access such information without falling into the trap of greenwashing or having to scan through very confusing and over-complicated information.

How Does Poor Sleep Effect Food Choices?

As I’m sure you already know, sleep is a vital component of the interconnected biochemical system we call the human body. You may have felt that deep struggle to get out of bed after a bad night sleep or the need for a mid-afternoon coffee to see you through to the end of the day. But what you might not realize is the effect that a bad nights’ sleep (or 3 or 4) has on what and how much you eat.

Is Organic Food More Nutritious?

Organic foods are tightly regulated in the UK by the Soil Association who set restrictions around what can and cannot be classed as an organic product. When it comes to fruit and vegetables, their organic nature is mostly certified by their use of only natural fertilisers and pesticides in their cultivation and also their regenerative farming methods. Whereas, with non-organic grown produce, farmers are permitted to use a much broader selection of fertilisers and pesticides. However, these are all only at levels that are deemed safe by various regulatory bodies.
