Summary
Unnaturally Delicious is the story of today's innovators who are shaping the future of food. You'll meet an ex-farmer entrepreneur whose software is being used on farms all over the world; egg producers who've created housing systems that affordably improve hen welfare; scientists who are growing meat without the cos; and college students who are coaxing bacteria to help improve food quality and fight obesity. Nutrient-enhanced sweet potatoes are being used to solve malnutrition in the developing world, and we may soon have tasty 3-D printed food delivered by a robotic chef. In Unnaturally Delicious, Jayson Lusk offers optimism for the future, showing how science and technology can help solve the world's largest food and farming problems.--INSIDE FLAP
