SuperFruits? Or Just Superb Fruits? June 18, 2009 10:00 PT • 1:00 ET
Separating the folklore from the facts
"Miracle foods"... "Nutrient and taste powerhouse"... "The Bernie Madoff of nutrition"... All of these accolades, criticisms and hyperboles have been used recently to describe superfruits. Indeed, the superfruits phenomenon has gained sweet success on three fronts—health, great taste, and its experiential element that resides deep in the tropics. But has the hype grown thicker than the jungles where superfruits grow so prolifically?
The Nutracon SuperFruits Webinar will take a close look superfruits' challenges and the drivers of success. Ian Crown, superfruits pioneer and farmer will share his stories about what is so super about superfruits. Also, James Joseph, PhD, Lead Scientist, Lab Chief, Laboratory of Neuroscience USDA-ARS Human Nutrition Research Center will discuss how health and wealth collide when overhyped antioxidant claims eclipse credible science—a term described in the May issue of Functional Ingredients as the ORAC Wars.
