Our goal is to create food that gives you the most bang for your buck. We do this by fitting in as many superfoods we can into our product, have it taste delicious, AND make it affordable (and therefore accessible) to as many people as possible.
𝗪𝐇𝐎 𝐢𝐬 Food Nerd 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫? Any body! But especially children and athletes- two major groups of people that exceptional nutrition is PIVOTAL for performance and growth.
Our company stands on four pillars: 𝐍𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, 𝐒𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲, 𝐀𝐟𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐍𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬.

“We don't inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children” - paraphrased from Wendell Berry
We should be raising our children on sustainable lifestyles that they can take with them as they grow older. After all, if we don’t take care of the earth, the earth won’t take care of us (she is a self preserver after all!) How does what you eat effect the earth?
According to a recent UN report “ ¼ of global emissions come from food and more than ½ of all food emissions come from animal products” Poore and Nemecell* (2018) Science
You have POWER as a consumer, both in what you eat and where you buy your food/other products from. Supporting companies with sustainability in mind is one step we can take to grow a greener world.
How does Food Nerd play its role?
We do our best to provide you with sustainable and earth friendly ingredients whilst still keeping the products affordable and therefore accessible.
Sustainability is always on our mind here at Food Nerd, and we’re constantly thinking of new ways to help reduce our footprint (and we’re receptive to your ideas, too!) We hope to have recyclable packaging in our next coming orders, and biodegradable (i.e. compostable) packaging is our big goal!
Healthy alternatives have often been deemed too expensive for the average consumer. Everyone wants what's best for themselves, their family, and the earth- but not everyone feels that they can afford it.
At Food Nerd our goal is to make superfood nutrition affordable to as many households as possible.
4. Integrity of Nutrients
How and if plants are cooked, when they are picked/germinated, the soil quality, and more are all determinants of the nutrient quality of the food. For instance, cooking certain vegetables can reduce their vitamin C content up to 50%* (!
We did our research, and our methodology ensures that the high quality nutrition we put into the products will remain intact after product creation. This way, you are reaping all the benefits!
We believe a balanced lifestyle includes both cooked and non cooked plant foods. Most packaged snack foods are cooked in some way shape or form and have to fortify their products in order to bring the nutrition back to the food. With Food Nerd, you can be sure you’re getting the nutrients straight from the source, in its organic form.
