Superfoods: Myths and Truths

Superfoods: Myths and Truths

EIT Food

Overview

Blueberries, green tea, avocados; we've all heard of supposed 'superfoods' that we're meant to fit into our diets at every opportunity. But how can you tell which foods are actually worthy of the label? As you shop for and cook your food, it's important to be aware of the myths created by food marketing. Being cautious especially rings true when a diet depends on 'superfoods' to provide important nutrients, or if you have food allergies or deficiencies that require careful meal planning.

This FutureLearn course, presented by EIT Food, Europe's leading food initiative, and the University of Turin, begins with a basic question: 'what are superfoods?' Educators Alessandro Cicerale, Dr. David Field, Michal Janiak, and Igor Piumetti break superfoods down to their most important nutrients, explain how they function biologically, and tell us how we can take advantage of their special health benefits.
