I thought it was a good program, but I'm always annoyed with Horizon when it conduct 'studies' that aren't really scientifically accurate (e.g. double blind, placebo, controlled studies).


The professor's comments on 'organic' made me laugh. How she didn't understand that organic foods are farmed without the use of pesticides is beyond me.

Yes it was an interesting show but I thought the prof was a bit scary. I don't need science to tell me that fruit is good for me- its common sense! Whether 'superfoods' have any superior qualities is beside the point - at least we (and most importantly kids) are being encouraged to try to be extra healthy.

Besides the man on the telly was cute.

Agree with Andrew Carr's point. The programme was more entertainment than scientific or investigative and very weak on organic issue, which is much more involved than whether or not Aerial washes whiter at 30 degrees.

Blogged about it here:

I thought innocent came through well, the vans looked nice and Richard Reed did well to get out of tight spot on antioxidants by talking about heavy nights out!

Seems like 'superfoods' is shown up as a classic overclaim, though. We all know fruit and veg (and innocent products) are good for us.

Time for innocent to show they know that superfoods is a marketing term, not a nutritional one?
