Find the right ideas for developing nutritious and healthy food with good raw materials


Interview with Liu Jianshu, Researcher of Shaanxi Functional Food Technology Research and Development Center
 
In China's market, the market supply and market demand of nutritious food and health food are extremely asymmetric, and there is a big difference between the supply products and the health demand products. Due to the unreasonable diet structure, overnutrition leads to metabolic disorders in the body and a series of chronic diseases, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and so on. However, the nutritional and health foods developed for this situation cannot meet consumer demand.
 
In view of this situation, the health management, prevention and control and rehabilitation system of chronic diseases should be established. Liu Jianshu said that a scientific and standardized chronic disease prevention and control and rehabilitation system should be established with a healthy lifestyle as a comprehensive prevention and control program and nutrition and healthy food intervention as guiding measures.
 
nutritious and healthy food raw material
 
Food raw materials commonly used in the development of nutritional and healthy products: red koji, konjac, phytosterols, garlic, fish oil, phospholipids, oats, green tea, etc.
 
Garlic
 
Garlic is one of the top ten healthy foods recommended by the American Times. Garlic has antibacterial power, the main ingredient is allicin and so on.
 
Houttuynia cordata Thunb
 
Houttuynia cordata Thunb is a medicinal and edible herb included in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and its main ingredients are flavonoids (quercetin), houttuyfonate, and methyl-nonanone.
 
Houttuyfonate can significantly reduce the levels of cholesterol and low density lipoprotein in model rats.
 
Honeysuckle
 
Honeysuckle is a medicinal and edible herb included in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and its main ingredients are honeysuckle luteolin, chlorogenic acid and so on.
 
Honeysuckle luteolin has certain anti-inflammatory activity.
 
Honeysuckle can significantly reduce serum cholesterol and atherosclerosis index in a variety of model mice.
 
Gynostemma pentaphyllum
 
Gynostemma pentaphyllum is "food, medicine, drink" one of the healing and health herbs, known as "southern ginseng". Qinba mountain area is rich in high-quality Gynostemma pentaphyllum, saponin content as high as 12.2%, known as "twisted valley".
 
Gypenosides can reduce cholesterol, triglyceride, low density lipoprotein in serum of high fat animals, significantly increase blood high density lipoprotein, and can significantly reduce endothelin.
 
Hawthorn
 
Hawthorn is a unique Chinese medicine and fruit tree species. Its main components are hawthorn three posts, hawthorn flavonoids and so on.
 
Ursolic acid is the main component of triterpenoids in hawthorn, which has the effect of reducing blood lipid and is conducive to the decomposition and metabolism of lipid peroxide.
 
Hawthorn flavonoids can effectively reduce the content of cholesterol, triglyceride and low density lipoprotein cholesterol in rat serum, and increase the content of high density lipoprotein cholesterol in rat serum. Hawthorn flavonoids can effectively reduce the content of cholesterol, triglyceride and low density lipoprotein cholesterol in rat serum, and increase the content of high density lipoprotein cholesterol in rat serum.
 
Development Ideas of Nutrition and Health Industry
 
In the future, the nutrition and health industry should develop targeted products for different groups. Precision dietotherapy is the development of nutrition and healthy food combined with human health. For sub-health people of different ages, different occupations and different geographical nutritional needs, new health products with precise nutritional supplements are developed.
 
For different age groups, such as protein powder developed for the elderly, special products developed for pregnant women, infants and other people of different ages. Different occupational groups: such as products developed for athletes special food, mental workers, students and other groups.
 
Strengthen product industrialization. The development and marketing of nutrition and health food are combined. From the simple basic research, science and technology project declaration, science and technology award evaluation into the research and development around the product market. Research and development of different groups of people, different physiological and nutritional needs of products, such as hypoglycemic lipid-lowering products, enhance immunity, improve sleep and other products.
