"The Farmer & The City Girl Podcast Episode 009 - The Breakfast Episode – Enriched vs Fortified"

Cream of Wheat has sparked an entire episode!

In this episode, Carrie and Rob are chatting about enriched and fortified foods, how it happens and why. How acids help your food last longer including the secret to keeping avocados from turning brown once it’s exposed to the air.

Which is better – Captain Crunch or Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, plus listen in to hear a super weird fact about Carrie's ice cream habit.

FEEDBACK REQUESTED: 

  • Farmers: What is it that is added back into food? When you remove something, process it and then what is being added back in? What form is it in?
  • Consumers: Do the words “Enriched” or “Fortified” on the packaging prompt you to purchase your food? Do you seek out products that are enriched or fortified with specific vitamins or minerals?
