Prairie climate linked to healthier food
June 16, 2012 | By mahrn |
The Manitoba Agri-Health Research Network Inc. (MAHRN) wants the world to know there are plenty of benefits to eating the foods we grow right here on the prairies. Canadian growing conditions may even give our crops special healthful qualities that we can develop into food with benefits beyond basic nutrition. Our long prairie days, clean air and clean water are just what nature needs to boost production of phytochemicals, the natural substances in plants and animals that provide additional health benefits – hence the concept of the Canadian Climate Advantaged Diet.
