Eat to Nourish: Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

Updated: Mar 29

Why it matters to include Vitamin B5 (also known as Pantothenic Acid) in your diet.


Conventional fresh food supply chains take days even weeks to get fresh produce to you the customer. As a result, a lot of nutritional value is lost due to natural decaying processes and vitamins are especially volatile and you lose a lot of nutritional value very quickly. Spinach can lose up to 90% of its Vitamin C content in 24 hours.


Because Nourishing Hub is local to the community we sell our greens still growing and you harvest when you are ready to eat, you have no loss of nutrients.
