RDBA Launches New EduTrac® A Fresh Take on Food Processing: The Role of Processing in Supporting Safe, Healthy and Equitable Eating Patterns
Throughout history, food processing has played a critical role in building a safe, accessible, equitable, healthy and sustainable food system. In fact, our earliest ancestors invented food processing with the simple step of adding heat (i.e. fire) to meats, seeds and vegetables – providing humans with distinct advantages for survival. Food processing technologies today are often extensions of these original methods and are used to create flavorful, safe and healthy foods and beverages.
