Cooking up the hamburger for health

Cooking up the hamburger for health – National – smh.com.au: “The trend for functional foods has become so prevalent that Food Standards Australia New Zealand will next year seek to have high-level health claims strictly regulated and legalised.”

The CSIRO is working on ways and means of delivering nutritional food with health benefits…glycoprotein, bioadditives. Things like fat replacers and ingredients which would prevent thrombosis. As with anything it has to pass the taste test and the long term effects. I prefer the other option of making a list of foods which are proven to have health benefits…like folic acid, so that we could have a handy list of good , naturally occurring foods and their long term benefits to us. To me it’s about knowing your foods and nutrition. If food is engineered then people do not understand the fundamentals of feeding themselves. maybe that’s too old fashioned!
