The Equilibrium philosophy
The evolution of the food industry and the increase in diseases
Over the past 60 years, food technology developed very rapidly to cope with the growing demand from the global industry. The man on the contrary, took thousands of years evolve and unfortunately, he was not always able to adapt to such sudden changes, thus, our body takes a long time before being able to adapt to the evolution of [food] technology. In this perspective, for decades now, the scientific community has agreed to attribute to the food industry a significant role in this scenario. Very often, in order to meet the economic needs, genetically modified products and contaminants have been introduced in cultivation and production processes, causing side effects rather evident for our health. The proof is the increase of Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, diabetes, depression and obesity which today register an unprecedented surge.
A consumer more attentive to food culture
The consequence of all this, is reflected today in the growing number of people who, sensitive to the problem of nutrition, have discovered an effective form of prevention in functional foods; approaching daily a valid alternative to conventional foods.
In fact, Equilibrium Food wants to put Mother Nature in a position to fully express its potential benefit, knowingly combining the various ingredients according to careful formulas in order to amplify the effect of these foods on our body. Our ambition is to spread an healthy food culture, providing products and knowledge that will allow you to recognize and defend yourself from the pitfalls of modern food.
Why Equilibrium Food is born
Equilibrium Food therefore arises from an in-depth research of our nutritionist and scientific communicator Derry Procaccini who, starting from simple ingredients and processes that enhance their nutritional properties and combining the knowledge of nutritionists, researchers and agronomists; has identified Equilibrium Food’s mission: to guarantee you products with the highest nutritional value, maximum transparency and traceability of the food supply chain.
