These days, we’re far more concerned whith what’s in our food than ever before. Where carbohydrates, antioxidants, protein and gluten were terms only used by scientists at one stage, they’re now part of everyday lingo

People are interested in the proportions, ratios, and amounts of particular nutrients; calcium, Iron, fiber, potassium etc; and the more of an essential nutrient within a food, the more we feel we should eat that food.

But what if, despite all the attention we pay to the milligrams of vitamins and minerals in our food, we couldn’t access those nutrients anyway.
