Innovative Foods: Red Turkish Bagel

As Albert Einstein said;” I don’t know with what weapons World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with Sticks and Stones”.  We understand the truth of this sentence more and more every day.

Based on this sentence, we can say that in the near future we will be talking about water wars, food wars and land wars.

The carbon food print and water food prints have also become very important in the food production.

Therefore, we have to act proactively. According to many authoroties, food trends of 2030 will be as follows;

Food Industry Trends in 2030

  • Nutritional Foods

This information tell us that “In the future, we will have to live as in the past” so natural, healthy and local live, like our grand mothers and grand fathers.       

Because We are Getting Older!

We are getting older, our skin is deteriorating and our bones starting to ache, right?

Physically we call it aging.

Can we slow this? Or can we make it better?

All of these show us once again the importance of the balance between oxidants and anti-oxidants.

Free Radicals

What will we eat? >> Healthy and Innovative Foods

As you know, our dietery habits and food trends change every day. Well, can we produce and consume traditional and innovative products?

The answer is, YES!

There it is, Red Turkish Bagel.          

Red bagel is a both nutritious and traditional food with fibers in sesame, the calcium in carob molasses and the antioxidant in red beet.

Nutritional Content of Red Beets

If we are generalize, we can say that dark colored foods are healthier than light colored ones (ofcourse we are talking about natural foods). Red and purple colored foods are the biggest examples of this.

Red foods contain phytochemicals called lycopene and betalain. Lycopene gives color to tomato, also betalain gives color to red beets. The antioxidants in these foods fight free radicals in our bodies.

Red beets also help the digestive system with the large amount of fiber it contains. Supports hemoglobin production with the iron it contains.

Also helps bone health and brain nerve conduction system with its calcium and potassium content. It also has benefits in balancing blood pressure.

Our future is in; healthy, nutritious and innovative foods.

Stay Healthy.
