(SJ) Goji berries from China, chia seeds from Central America, moringa powder from India - eating vegan or low carb? With the establishment of a Coordination Center for Nutrition, Jasmin Peschke will create in the Section for Agriculture a basis for understanding the relationships of personal nutritional behavior, which has become more individualised and conscious of its consequences.
Our daily bread is more than just something to eat. Seeds, growing and processing characterise food quality. Eating becomes a culture if socially beneficial aspects such as sustainability, fair trade and the environment where eating takes place, are taken into account. A high-quality meal, prepared in an appealing way, allows individual tasks to be more effectively taken up. In addition, you become “Landscapers the Argentine Pampas, if you eat a juicy steak every day. Because then more GMO-soya will be grown there," explains Jasmin Peschke.
With the Coordination Center for Nutrition, the Section for Agriculture expands from their core competencies in Biodynamic agriculture. Jasmin Peschke, with a doctorate in nutritional science, will bring together insights about healthy and responsible diet and make them available through training courses for professionals and consumers in order to stimulate individualised nutrition. "I shall be a contact person for nutrition initiatives from all over the world," said Jasmin Peschke. To make the global importance of diet clear, she points out how breeding, farming and processing are connected with education and medicine, in for example, the menu plans of hospitals, schools, factories and homes for the elderly.
Jasmin Peschke works closely with the Nutrition Circle in the Section, a platform for deepening work and exchange on food issues. The Nutrition Circle was founded by the Agricultural and the Medical Sections together with the Working Group for Nutrition Research in Germany and has met regularly at the Goetheanum since 2001.
