Eggplants beneficial to health. study
To end the day, a recent study on eggplants and their health benefits. Specifically, a team of researchers from the Valencian Agrodiversity Conservation and Improvement Institute (COMAV), from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), have developed aubergines with properties that are beneficial for health.
Reading the information about it, it turns out that a normal aubergine, one of those grown in the garden, contains about 300 to 400 milligrams per kilo of polyphenols. In the laboratory of this university they have achieved that the aubergines, of the almagro species, have up to 800 milligrams per kilo of polyphenols.
What are polyphenols? It is always said that wine is a source of polyphenols, and many people stay there, naming them as something positive. And they really are. This set of molecules constitutes a defense in plants against external aggressions, such as insects or microorganisms. When we digest vegetables, greens, wine, or in this case the university aubergines, polyphenols are structured in our body as a very important source of antioxidants.
The antioxidants in these almagro aubergines can be a new and natural source of quick health benefits.
Although we must wait, according to the University of Valencia, about two or three years until they can be commercialized. Nobody said that everything good was quick to obtain. In fact, from what we normally have on the market, it seems that it is easier to access food from unnatural sources than food that really benefits us. A pity, that from DaP we hope it will be corrected with the passage of time.
