Kale craze

The New York Daily News quoted Timothy ­Coolong, an associate professor of horticulture at UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in Tifton, in an article detailing the growth of superfoods. The article said kale production, especially in the South, has almost tripled in the past decade, due mainly to the demand for healthy foods that pack vitamins and fiber.

“Food culture changes,” Coolong said. “Our palate is getting more sophisticated.”
