Info Food refers to any material food ingested to give the body nutritional support. It contains all necessary nutrients, including proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, or any combination thereof, and is generally of plant, animal, or fungi source. Info Food must contain essential micro-nutrients in their appropriate dosages for human consumption. In particular, we are interested in two key nutrients that are missing from our regular diets: folic acid and iron. Folic acid helps prevent birth defects by reducing defects in neural tube and fetus development; iron, by increasing the production of red blood cells (RBCs) and hemoglobin, which increases the oxygen carrying capacity (CAC) of blood.
While it is important to get enough of these vital nutrients in our diet, which are lacking in many people, there are many types of Info Foods that meet this criterion. For example, spinach is a good source of both folate and iron, due to the presence of a special chemical called folate. This chemical is found naturally in spinach, but is added in a powder form to increase its bioavailability and to make it more attractive to the mass market. Other Info Foods are also now made with the combination of bioactive starches from sources in New Zealand, which are even more nutritious than the refined variety.
In some ways we live in an age of nutrient scarcity. We have to be selective about what we choose to eat. The benefits of most foods go beyond simple nutrition, and include strong mental health. It has been proven that eating certain foods can make you happier, healthier and more alert, and could help prevent depression and other diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, etc. Eating healthily can improve your quality of life.
