Healthy French Fry!

Postby Canuck Singh » Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:00 am

A New Yorker has developed what she believes to be a healthier French fry, which contains less than half the carbohydrate content of regular fries. The woman currently has a patent pending for the invention.

Made predominantly with cauliflower, the fries contain only six to eight grams of carbohydrates, compared to over 20 grams in regular fries. They contain only a small amount of potato, and have as much fiber per serving as broccoli.

Because of their constitution, marketers of this product believe the fries will be a hit with health conscious people like bodybuilders that follow a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. However, independent analyses are yet to confirm the calorie and macronutrient breakdown of the new French fry. Only time will tell if this food is good for health conscious people that want to keep lean.

Will try to follow this one up!

Healthy PIZZA

People are more health conscious than ever so food sciences are attempting to give many popular foods a make-over to improve their nutritional quality. Now, a team of food chemists at the University of Maryland have discovered how to boost the antioxidant content of pizza dough by optimizing baking and fermentation methods. Ultimately, this will lead to creating a healthier pizza!

Healthy pizza…..could life get any better?

Pizza bakers have known for some time that longer-baking times and higher temperatures can enhance the flavor of pizza. This new study has shown that intense baking conditions also boost antioxidant levels in dough, especially the whole wheat varieties. That's good news for fans of deep-dish pizza; the longer baking time and thicker crust may have the potential to deliver higher levels of antioxidants. These findings were presented in Chicago at the 23rd national meeting of the American Chemical Society.
