ISSN

A high level of agro biodiversity resulting in a high level of nutritional diversity is a valuable re- source in supplying all necessary nutrients for a health-oriented human diet. For high agro biodiversity,traditional crops and foods are especially crucial. Yet, these are often neglected in research and development.1 This is even more surprising as it is known that, for example, most traditional vegetablesare more nutritious compared- to exotic, specially-bred and high- yield varieties.2 At the same time, it is increasingly being acknowledged that single nutrients alone are not the key to solving nutritional problems and preventing chronic diseases, but that whole foods or food groups in the right combinations are desirable.
