🍲 Using various technologies, the project focuses on producing value-added ingredients, such as flour and fat replacers, that are rich in vitamins and minerals. For example, the creation of flour from orange-fleshed sweet potatoes, amaranth leaves, and green bananas, as well as fat replacers from Teff and maize starches.
🌟 The results of the study show the potential of these ingredients to improve health outcomes for communities affected by malnutrition, with faster drying times, improved functional and nutritional properties, and more.
