Breaking down the science & safety of food production with Food Science Babe Food Confidence Podcast

    • Kids & Family

In this episode we talk to Erin of Food Science Babe, a food scientist with over 10 years of experience in both the conventional and organic food sectors. Erin shares myth-busting information on Facebook and Instagram to help her audience learn about food production, marketing, and agriculture. We talk to Food Science Babe about some hot-topic issues: conventional vs organic food, genetic modification, and the misinformation and fear-based marketing around these topics. As a food scientist, Erin is able to speak to the different types of genetic modification, the safety of foods on the market, and some of the environmental concerns that we often hear around farming practices. The objective of this episode is for our listeners gain an understanding of another side of the food conversation that we don’t often hear in mainstream media or marketing. In exploring some of the science behind conventional and organic food production, our hope is that you can feel more freedom and ease when you’re making food choices for yourself and your family.
