We live in an world which is connected and anyone can say or spread misinformation about foods and their benefits (or its detriments). There are celebrities, influencers, bloggers and others which contribute to this misinformation and whose opinions are taken as fact by many. This leads to some dubious claims about the health benefits of particular foods.
It is about time we took a stand and this month and we invite you to post information, which can be backed up by scientific evidence from a reliable source, on the health benefits of a particular food. This could be anywhere from an ingredient to combination of ingredients which work together to give a benefit.
Post your health claiming foods with the supporting evidence below. Note, if your post falls into the outlandish or misinformation category, expect other community members to set the record straight.
