Nice and encouraging post for the ETE students. Thank you Mr. Shaikat.

Thanks for the informative post.

thank you for this information. sometimes we act carelessly and do not think about the health hazards of throwing this types of wastages here and there. now we must be very careful regarding this.

Nutrition and Food Engineering / Popcorn the perfect snack?
« on: April 07, 2012, 11:19:15 AM »
A team of researchers from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania has found that popcorn contains more antioxidants than other fruits and vegetables.

Antioxidants are substances that many scientists believe help protect against cancer and heart disease. According to Joe Vinson, PhD, who presented the findings at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society, "popcorn may be the perfect snack food." Vinson is known for his pioneering research on micronutrients in chocolate, nuts and other foods.
Although earlier research had already discovered antioxidants called polyphenols in popcorn, Vinson's study measured the exact amount and found that it contains about twice as many as fresh sweet corn or fruit per serving. Polyphenols are diluted up to 90 per cent in most fruits and vegetables because of their high water content. They are more concentrated in popcorn because it only contains about 4 per cent water.
The study also extols popcorn as a whole grain. "It's the only snack that is 100 per cent unprocessed whole grain," says Vinson. "One serving of popcorn will provide more than 70 per cent of the daily intake of whole grain. The average person only gets about half a serving of whole grains a day, and popcorn could fill that gap in a very pleasant way."
Vinson cautions against replacing fruits and vegetables, which contain many other important nutrients, with popcorn. He also warns that drowning it in butter or sugary flavourings is going to offset the nutritional benefits. To get your daily dose of antioxidants and whole grains, it’s healthiest to stick with plain, air popped corn. The second best option is microwave popcorn.

Nutrition and Food Engineering / Five things to protect your bones
« on: March 29, 2012, 11:34:52 AM »
1. Enjoy The Sunshine

Vitamin D is an essential bone-strengthener, but there’s a catch: it doesn’t do anything on its own—you need to add calcium to see results.

2. Read Food Labels

Too much salt makes it hard for your body to hold onto bone-boosting calcium (and most of us are guilty of eating too much) so make sure you check the salt-content on food labels.

Sodium can sneak into your diet in the most innocuous-looking foods—packaged soups and cereals are two surprising culprits. And the bread in that sandwich you’re eating -  Could contain up to a whopping 500 mg of sodium (the recommended daily dose is 100 mg). Most people probably have twice as much sodium as they need.

3. Make A Salad

Fruit and vegetables can do wonders for your bones. Studies suggest potassium-rich produce blocks salt’s adverse effect on bone health. What are the best bone-protecting fruit and veg? Don’t stress about that—just aim for five serves a day.

4. Serve A Steak

It’s a simple equation: higher protein means stronger bones. You should aim for 1 g for every 1 kg you weigh (so a 70 kg woman should consume 70 g of protein.) How do you work it out? Another easy calculation: divide the weight of the protein-source by one-third (so a 100 g steak has about 30 g protein).

5. Take A Walk

A simple exercise like walking can boost your bone density, plus losing excess kilos takes some stress off your frame, which in turn takes a load off your bones.
