NGÄBE-BUGLÉ NATION NUTRITION
had a hand when Dr. Dan Daves helped Proeducann founders Armando and Cirila Dixon and a Ngäbe nutritionist student Ana Paola Puzo with her thesis -like study for Universidad Autónoma de Chiriquí(UNACHI). She wrote on the theme of superfoods- mixing spinach, broccoli, kale, for example in dehydration form. Dr. Dan disperses dehydrated superfoods out to the Comarca or for needy people who need more nutrition in their diets. We gave a seminar last year on the Comarca with Dr. Dan regarding this same project of dehydrated foods. The group also made a video explaining the importance of vegetables in the diet.
Nutritional analysis dehydrated food.
Per NGÄBE-BUGLÉ NATION Ana Puzo “the purpose of this thesis is to determine the nutritional value of a mixture of powedered dehydrated vegetables produced by a vegetable producer Company called: Global Food
