Feeding the World with Soileos

Rising CO2 levels, pollution and soil depletion have resulted in sharp declines in nutrient density of crops around the world. At least half of all children worldwide aged 6 months to 5 years suffer from one or more micronutrient deficiency and an estimated 2 billion people globally are at risk of micronutrient malnutrition, which is considered a threat to human health on a global scale according to the World Health Organization

deficiencies in the world, affecting an estimated two billion people

Soileos is a cellulose-based smart fertilizer that increases crop yields without polluting run-off. In areas with alkaline soil where synthetic fertilizers are ineffective, Soileos enables farmers to increase yields and grow more nutrient dense food. Crops grown with Soileos are biofortified with significant increased levels of Iron, Zinc, Manganese and Phosphorus in plant tissue and seeds, positively impacting the health of local consumers. Soileos also fortifies the soil for future harvests, helping to reverse the cycle of soil depletion.

Decline in Nutrient Density

The average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent from 1975 to 1997 – Kushi Institute
