Last week, I
posted an entry introducing leaf concentrate (LC).
Appropriate Technology published a followup article to the one I blogged about entitled "The greatest untapped food resource on earth, part 2" 39(4)11-13. This second article
discusses the variety of ways in which LC can be used to supplement the diets of
undernourished populations. LC has also
provided astonishing results in helping HIV/AIDS patients suffering from
malnutrition. Some of the nutrients contained in LC
vitamin A and B9 (folic acid)
vitamins B6 and
omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids
high quality protein
This article includes a recipe for cookies using LC. You can find
a list of recipes that include LC as a main ingredient here.
