Do you remember the scene in Back to the Future II (when they go way into the future year, 2015) where they were getting ready to eat pizza by “hydrating” a tiny food packet into a full-sized one? Well, they might have missed the mark with the Black & Decker Hydrator, but they got one thing right – the way we consume food is changing.
With more and more emphasis on healthy lifestyles, especially healthy eating, the demand for organic produce is on the rise. Using pesticides and genetic engineering in farming techniques are raising red flags, leading the way for an increase in organic methods. And with the advancement of biofarming technology, new methods of growth technology are quickly developing.
Using biofarming technology, a breakthrough known as hydroponics, was created. Hydroponics is growing plants and vegetables in an aquatic-based environment consisting of nutrient solutions in water – without any soil. Using hydroponics, farmers are no longer limited by climate or season and can grow any plant at any time of the year.
Taking this revolutionary farming method to the next level, BioHarvest, a Start-Up Nation tech company, developed a technology to produce “biofoods”, containing the plants’ phytochemicals in their natural state. This technology mirrors nature to create a fruit powder from the parent plant by growing fruit in nutritive liquid solution and ultimately harvesting the final product – a fruit powder.
The New Bio-Superfood is Created
VINIA became a new bio-superfood when a leading biologist and a grape specialist uncovered a way to offer an alternative to wine – without its excessive sugar and alcohol content.
The real breakthrough came from a discovery within nature itself – the grapes from the vine contained a powerful source of polyphenols. This discovery featured a dramatic shift in how to leverage nature through technology by growing red grape cells via hydroponics and cultivating them into a fine powder without any genetic engineering (non-GMO) envolved. Growing VINIA was the beginning of this revolutionary development of the bio-superfood journey.
So, what is VINIA and how is it a bio-superfood?
VINIA is 100% grape powder, which is completely natural and absorbable. It is packed with all the benefits of wine, but without the sugar or calories. VINIA is made from the entire grape, with one packet containing the same amount of resveratrol found in 1,000 grapes or 1 bottle of wine.
And while VINIA is made only from grapes, BioHarvest’s vision is to continue to expand the platform technology, cultivating a variety of fruits and vegetables into bio-superfoods – the possibilities are endless! New products will become a close proxy to the consumption of large quantities of fresh fruits and vegetables without the undesirable components such as calories, sugar and residues from pesticides that are used in agricultural production.
This is the future of food. Science and technology working together to unleash the power of nature in a new and healthy way. With bio-superfoods, you will not only feel healthy, but you will BE healthy.
