Researchers develop eggs effective in diet and mood control
Researchers in Korea have found NATURAL ways to create customized eggs that are better quality and even have enhanced properties that can help tackle various health concerns, including shedding those excess kilograms.
Kim Mok-yeon reports.
Amid increasing public interest on health and fitness, scientists have developed ways to reinforce the components of many health products.
Lately, researchers at Seoul National University developed eggs that can be helpful in tackling some health concerns, by feeding chickens with fermented buckwheat which has large amounts of L-Carnitine and Gaba which are each effective in breaking down fats and tackling depression.
"We produced L-Carnitine through the fermentation of natural substances and to our surprise, the produced egg contained more than 13 percent of L-Carnitine and 8 percent of Gaba."
Aside from these effects, feeding chickens with fermented buckwheat was also effective in improving both the quality and quantity of the eggs.
The research team found that hens fed with fermented buckwheat laid around 8 percent more eggs compared to those fed with conventional feed.
They also found that the egg shells became thicker and that the general quality of the eggs improved.
The latest findings are expected to boost research in developing health products with added values through the use of natural substances.
