Speaking of Superfoods Valley’s penetration into food science with technological advancements, D. Shovan Ganguli comments, “With the government’s many fortification initiatives in the past and increased access to food, our calorie intake, and macronutrients are nearly taken care of. Yet there is a rising concern about micronutrient deficiencies of Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, etc. which affect childhood growth and can often lead to stunting issues. Using tech to solve for this and connect a wider and deeper audience with the message of eating nutritious food is a great advancement.”
