1:03 The broccoli and potato industry is in the midst of a major marketing push.
The food giant has introduced broccoli and it potatoes, and the campaign aims to show how nutritious the food is.
The campaigns aim to give consumers the confidence that the vegetables are of high quality, and are high in vitamin C.
The campaigns have been criticised by campaigners who say the messages are misleading, particularly because of the fact that broccoli is already highly nutritious.
The Campaign for Real Nutrition says there are no reliable numbers about the vitamin C content of the vegetables, and it is unclear how the vitamin is obtained.
“People don’t know how much vitamin C is in broccoli,” said Katherine Anderson, a research analyst at the Campaign for Fair Nutrition.
“It’s not a well-known food source.
It’s hard to know what it’s worth.”
And it’s not as widely available as it is in other foods like spinach or aspartame.
“Potato nutritionThe campaign has also been criticised for its use of the potato as an example of a nutritious food.
Potato is considered one of the most nutritious food crops in the world.
The UK produces almost 100m tonnes of potatoes, according to the European Potato Commission.
The European Commission estimates that about 80 per cent of these potatoes are consumed in Europe.
In the UK, the potato is grown on 1,400 hectares, and is cultivated to produce about a third of the UK’s annual output.
The potato’s fibre, protein and vitamin C are high.
But the potato’s nutritional value is not entirely dependant on the diet it is eaten with, as some vegetables are higher in vitamin K and other nutrients.
In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that the vitamin content of potatoes varied between European and US diets.
In the US, the vitamin A content was higher in the diet of a median of 25.3 per cent.
According to the USDA, the recommended intake of vitamin A is 3,000 mcg (16,000 IU).”
It is not surprising that the potato has been shown to have an impact on health,” said Richard Burt, a nutritionist at the University of Melbourne.”
However, it is important to note that the effects of vitamin K, vitamin C, iron and zinc on health have been much less clear.””
For many people, the health benefits of potatoes are minimal, but those who are at high risk of osteoporosis and other chronic diseases can benefit from a high intake of these vitamins.
“Potatoes are also an excellent source of calcium, which can reduce the risk of bone fractures.
However, research suggests that potatoes may also be a poor source of folate, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
The campaign also highlights the nutritional value of the beetroot, which is grown commercially in Britain and Europe.
However the Beetroot Association of Great Britain says beetroot contains no vitamin C and does not meet the European Commission’s recommended intake for vitamin C:3,000 to 4,000 mg/100g.”
Potatoes do have a low nutrient content, but the benefits of eating a healthy diet and reducing the risk factors for cancer and heart disease are more than outweighed by their poor nutrient content,” said Andrew Smith, the Beetroots chief executive.
The Beetroots campaign also includes a disclaimer about its claims about broccoli.
It says that the nutritional information of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables is accurate, but it does not say the nutrient content of broccoli is “very high”.”
The data is not completely consistent between studies,” it says.”
While some studies have found a higher concentration of vitamin C in broccoli than in spinach, this is not a reliable measure of the vitamin in the plant.
“However, the US Department of Agriculture has recommended that people eating cruciferously foods (including broccoli, cauliflower, radishes and turnips) consume at least one serving of cruciferic vegetables a day.”
The nutrition information for these vegetables is based on the USDA’s National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (NNBR) for the United States.
“In addition, the NBR contains a list of commonly used nutrient content estimates.
These are estimates based on scientific studies and the data for each nutrient is derived from USDA’s own research,” it said.
Nutritionist Katherine Anderson says that a higher level of vitamin D in the food chain has been linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
Anderson said the campaign was misleading because the vitamin was not as readily available in the UK as in the US.
“They’re not all equally nutritious,” she said.
“There are some that are more nutritious than others.”
Potential pitfallsThe campaign is the latest in a string of similar campaigns to appear in the past year, and critics say it is also misleading because it is not based on research.
