The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Foods
Hosted by Australian Organic Limited with guest speakers from the University of Melbourne
Australian Organic Limited is pleased to share with you the recent meta-study on the nutritional benefits of organic produce from the University of Melbourne.
Long have we assumed that organic agriculture has more quantifiable benefits for your health, not just from an environmental or livestock welfare perspective. After all, nobody wants to eat pesticides and synthetic fertilisers!
We welcome Dr Senaka Ranadheera and his associate Anna Wittwer from the University of Melbourne as we explore the peer-reviewed science of the significant changes within the food you eat based on how it is produced.
The webinar will cover fatty acid profiles, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids and a number of other profiles as well as the potential for future research. Join us to explore this area and understand how the food choices you make may affect your health!
Australian Organic Limited (AOL) commissioned the School of Agriculture and Food at the University of Melbourne to conduct research surrounding organic foods, probiotics and the gut microbiome.
This webinar will primarily discuss the outcomes of the research, but will also touch upon how industry and academia can work towards mutually beneficial outcomes through the lens of post-graduate research.
It also provides an opportunity for the organic industry to observe how a peak industry body, such as AOL, can leverage its network to generate research into an area that will potentially have significant opportunities for the Australian, and international, organics industry.
