Ralph Moorman (16/7/1976) is a health coach and has a masters degree in food technology.

From a very early age, he has been interested in biology. And he is a real nature lover, which is why he spends a lot of his leisure time outdoors, sportively or otherwise. Ralph Moorman was a member of student athletics association Tartlétos in Wageningen. He would run distances from 200 metres up to a half-marathon and even a full one. He even completed a whole triathlon once! In addition, he was involved in natural bodybuilding.

Back to the subject of food – Ralph Moorman has tried out many different methods himself in order to find out the effects personally. From his background as a scientist, he has observed that what has been scientifically proven, is not always practically viable. By logically observing nature – and sticking close to it – Ralph Moorman not only achieved the best results for himself, but also for the many clients he advised during the customised programme: The hormonefactor.

What modern man consumes is lightyears removed from what nature is offering. It became his ambition to make people aware of this. And Ralph Moorman continues beyond just warning consumers and pointing out producers’ responsibilities to them. He is helping food companies develop healthy and fair alternatives that fit into our current society and present-day life. His background as a Food Technologist comes in handy here.

Ralph received this training at a time when ready-made meals were booming. His studies focussed on the heavy processing of food and the use of additives in order to maximise profit and obtain patents. Such food is far removed from nature – in fact, Ralph Moorman considers it an experiment with public health, for which almost nobody will have made a conscious choice. He believes that a delicious and nutritious product can be made without any of these heavily processed ingredients or additives. Ralph Moorman pursues transparency of the current supermarket range, especially containing pure and fair alternatives.
