RESEARCH NEEDS ON THEME ORGANIC FOOD AND NUTRITION
– Quality aspects of Finnish organic food compared to European food
– Consumer research is needed to increase understanding of consumers’ preferences
– What is organic quality food? How do we understand the quality aspects? How to ensure that organic products contain all essential minerals and vitamins? How do the values of the organic sector could be considered in the setting goals to the food refining ?
– Diet approach is needed instead of focusing on separate food items.
