Organizer :

Dr. Priyanka, Asst. Prof. Dept. of Home Science, KMCUAF University, Lucknow

Summary:

Mr. O.P. Srivastava explained Food processing refers to any activity that transforms the raw food stuff or semi finished food into a convenient form for the use of end user. The food processing industry has grown substantially in the last few decades. The increase in the incomes of the working class has led to rise in the disposable income to be spent on processed foods. The increase in the number of working women who get less time to do kitchen chores also is another factor for increased preference for processed foods. The change in the food habits of the working class who prefer readily available convenient foods is another factor. India is one of the top producers of fruits and vegetables and other food stuff. Hence availability of raw material makes it conducive for the growth of this sector. Thus broadly discussing its scope he also explained the importance at micro level.

Importance of Antioxidants and Healing Foods

Date :

21-Nov-2014

Resource Person :

Prof. Sunita Mishra, Dean & Head School for Home Science, BBAU University, Lucknow.

Organizer :

Dr. Priyanka, Asst. Prof. Dept. of Home Science, KMCUAF University, Lucknow

Summary:

Prof. Sunita Mishra explained how free radicals create a destructive process in our cells, causing the molecules within the cells to become unstable. They may even be a big player in the formation of cancerous cells by a “chain-reaction” effect, causing other cells to become damaged. Because of the inherent instability of free-radicals, they try to attack other healthy cells to get stable themselves. This causes the once-healthy cells to react in the same way, attacking others in a never-ending attempt for cellular stability. Once an antioxidant finds its way into the body, mostly through the foods we eat, it slows down, or even prevents, the oxidation of other molecules. Thus she told about various antioxidants and healing foods available that can be consumed for good health.
