Very recently, someone created organic gastronaut ice cream modeled after the ice cream that astronauts are said to be eating in space. It’s less messy, it tastes the same and it comes in slabs instead of scoops. But what’s more interesting is that Indian scientists have now developed a healthy ice cream!
The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) constituent laboratory, CSIR-Central Food Technological Research Institute (CSIR-CFTRI) Mysuru, in association with Oleome Biosolutions, Bengaluru and Dairy Classic Ice Creams Pvt. Ltd has developed Nutrice.
Made from a vegetarian source, Nutrice Cream is an Omega-3 and Vitamin-E enriched frozen nutritional dessert. Dietary supplementation of Omega-3 have been reported to have beneficial health functions including brain development in children and good health in elderly population.
CSIR-CFTRI have also developed a diverse array of food products like Nutri-chikki which is incorporated with spirulina, rice mix, high protin rusk, energy food, and others to fit nutritional requirements of different people.
