Today’s produce department is a gauntlet – a confusing, sometimes dangerous maze that consumers need to figure out. At the finish line is a healthy, nutrient dense diet, or for some just a tasty snack, but to get there you need to navigate through issues like conventional vs. organic, local vs. global, in-season, GMO, and a variety of storage requirements. In this lecture, Dr. Fisk will cover the issues you never knew you never knew about the produce department and explain how to maximize your produce purchasing power.
