Buffalo’s Food Nerd Makes Superfoods More Accessible


Buffalo is the land of chicken wings, pizza and Wegmans. But, between the endless shelves of our Buffalo favorites, Sharon Cryan, the Founder and CEO of Food Nerd, saw something missing.

“I was actually an internal advisor for a real estate development company on Long Island,” Cryan said. “Right after passing the bar and entering practice, everyone felt like trash after lunch,” Cryan said.

Everyone except her felt that way. Cryan was eating well. It became his mission to help others do the same.

Fast forward a few years, and Food Nerd has Overnights, and the most recent product, SeeReal.

“Our mission is to make the cleanest, rawest food, and to put it in a form that is not only accessible, but affordable for everyone,” Cryan smiled under his mask.

It all starts with a seed, then once it is three days old the second stage begins.

“All the compounds, minerals, vitamins, enzymes start to be active and this makes them more bioavailable to us, and it can also increase nutrients by up to 250%,” she said.

What you see is what you get in terms of the ingredients. It really is that simple.

If you are wondering what sulforaphane is, Cryan explains.

“Sulforaphane was discovered by Johns Hopkins about four decades ago, and it is the most potent anti-cancer compound found,” Cryan explained.

Cryan says right now, Food Nerd is the first company to have it in a food product. Currently, they are in the early stages which will lead to clinical trials on the benefits of sulforaphane.

“I really believe this is the future of food,” Cryan said. “You know, I want to eat this specific food for this biological purpose.”

Now she hopes to feel this Buffalove.

If you want to get your hands on these products, it’s a new year and a new you. They are available on the Food Nerd website and in February they will be on Amazon.
