Growing Real Food For Nutrition CIC

Exploring how to grow, measure and promote the benefits of nutrient dense food

Our vision is for a world where all food is grown for its nutritional qualities using regenerative practices. Nutritious food will be made accessible to all,  creating an abundance of health and harmony, reconnecting humans with Mother Earth.

Growing Community

We want to create a community of growers, chefs, nutritionists and food citizens; everyone who is a steward of our food future.

Citizen scientists exploring how to measure food quality can tell us all we need to know about soil quality, how it was grown, its nutrient density and its potential to support symbiosis between people and planet.

Growing Knowledge

With simple equipment you can test the quality of fresh food to indicate its nutrient density and verify results with comparative taste testing and other plant quality metrics.

Join Us


Grffn are developing citizen science projects to empower trust in the human senses that can help identify well grown, nourishing, nutrient dense food that increases people and planet health.
Members get an online food quality recording sheet so results can be used to baseline the quality of food you grow and eat, compare qualities to other members, exchange best practice and learn how to increase quality over time. 


Record your data to establish a baseline and compare results with other growers and learn from each other. Adapt your growing practices for the next season.

The Bionutrient Meter

Grffn supports the development of the Bionutrient Meter which is currently being developed to test the nutrient density of fruits and vegetables, in real time. 

Grffn’s ‘Food Quality First’ pilot project 2022/23 partnered with the Bionutrient Institute to run a pilot project in the UK. Results highlight the problems for calibrating the Meter and call for more research to help understand what nutrient density is. 

Grffn believe humans have the innate ability to know what is healthy for us and the planet but we need to remember how. Brix testing alongside comparative taste testing can awaken this awareness by identifying poor and excellent quality crops. When enough Citizen Scientists learn to do this we build evidence for trusting our senses and will understand more about nutrient density.
