WHAT DOES NUTRIENT DENSE MEAN?
Wikipedia says: According to the World Health Organization, nutrient profiling classifies and/or ranks foods by their nutritional composition in order to promote human (and/or animal) health and to prevent disease.
Ranking by nutrient density is one such nutrient profiling strategy. Ordering foods by nutrient density is a statistical method of comparing foods by the proportion of nutrients in foods. Some such comparisons can be the glycemic index and the Overall Nutritional Quality Index.
We define nutrient dense produce as being "high brix" which simply means the plant has a thicker sap containing more minerals and less water, which means you need to eat less. We grow food with calcium, phosphorous and the trace minerals your body needs for optimal health.
