Reviews

His book is so useful. It systematically sorts the wheat from the gluten-free chaff in terms of what is scientifically proven to be nutritionally beneficial amid the confusing fads and misinformation... As well as reassuring us about carbs, gluten and sugar, this book has a wealth of simple, applicable science. Plonk mushrooms on a windowsill for a couple of hours and they'll contain 100 times the vitamin D2 than if they were chopped into a soup straight from the fridge. Microwave kale and its polyphenol levels jump by 40 per cent. -- Anna Maxted * The Times *
