Green Life is an elegant network of next generation innovators which is made up of 3 unique individuals.it is a multidisciplinary yet collaborative team that comprise two biochemist and a microbiologist. These three individual share a common goal of providing solutions through science. The team itself is a repository of inter-connected skills needed to supercharge the world with and ‘out-of-the-box’ idea. The will be achieved by creating a synergy of knowledge through independent and interdependent thought system. The aim of the team is to develop a cost efficient, nutrient dense, high quality and sustainable canning/preservative method for leafy vegetables. We hope to improve access to the wide variety of possible nutritional networks in leafy vegetables of Nigerian origin.
The Efo network is a team of three individuals that are committed to employing their knowledge as potent tools of creating a food secure world. After a long period of research and brainstorming, the team came to the realization that one major cause of malnutrition even among learned individuals is the prevalence of hidden hunger. It is a general belief that once an individual does not complain of an empty stomach, such a person is not hungry. Although this may sound true, but it is a very wrong belief, because it has neglected the essence of balanced diet. People have forgotten that there are nutritional requirements for other vital organs other than the stomach such as eye, bone, lymph, thyroid, thymus, glands, brain, skin etc. which all have nutritional requirements that must be met. This kind of malnutrition does not cause obvious hunger per se, yet the body silently ‘hungers’ for the right nutrients. Even the WHO estimates that as many as 2 billion people worldwide, or about 30% of the world’s population, are not getting enough nutrients such as vitamin A, iron, or zinc in their diets. It is agreeable here that the world needs urgent remedial initiatives which will quench hidden hunger and associated disorders. However, Efo network has carried out few preliminary studies and found out that vegetables are a potent key to unlocking access to essential nutrients. This is why Efo network is set to embark on developing a cost efficient, nutrient dense, high quality and sustainable canning/preservative method for leafy vegetables. We hope to improve access to the wide variety of possible nutritional networks in leafy vegetables of West African Origin origin.
