Foraged Foods: From Survival To Fine Dining

New Delhi [India], January 10 (ANI): Foraging food started as a vogue some ten years back–a push back to proliferating globalization and homogenization of food.

Noma in Denmark was the trendsetter more than a decade back with the partner chef arguing persuasively that wild food connects people with nature and allows them a wonderful opportunity to slow down, reflect, introspect and discover themselves. It continues to retain its position at the top of the charts operates as Noma 2.0. What appeared as a passing fad has over the years become a powerful addiction for the gourmet.

Study: Parent’s Genes Can Influence A Child’s Educational Success

London [UK], January 10 (ANI): According to new research by the University College London, a child’s educational success depends on the genes of his parents that have been inherited as well as not been inherited. The study has been published in ‘The American Journal of Human Genetics’. Funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the study confirmed that genes a person inherits directly are most likely to contribute to their achievements in education. But parent genes that aren’t directly inherited, yet have still shaped parents’ own education levels and subsequently influenced the lifestyle and family environment they provide for their children, are also important and can affect how well a person does at school and beyond. Children resemble their parents because of nature (the genes they inherit) and nurture (the environment they grow up in). But nature and nurture effects are intertwined. Mothers and fathers each…

Study: Smoking During Pregnancy Linked To Smaller Babies In Future

Researchers have found that smoking at the start of pregnancy may link to having a smaller baby in future pregnancies. The study has been published in ‘PLOS One Journal’. The findings showed that women who smoked at the start of their first pregnancy were more likely to have a baby born smaller than expected in their second pregnancy compared to non-smokers. This was even the case where they reported quitting by the start of their second pregnancy. The biological relationship between smoking during pregnancy and a baby’s birth weight from the same pregnancy is well established. However, until now there has been limited evidence on the impact of maternal smoking on following pregnancies. In this study, the researchers found that for women who did not smoke at the start of either pregnancy, there was no extra risk of a small for gestational age (SGA)…

Study Finds Spicy Pepper From Curry In Breast Milk

A new study has found that the odour and taste from garlic or coffee can be found in breast milk, while flavours from fish oil or nursing tea weren’t traced. The research has been published in the ‘Molecular Nutrition & Food Research Journal’. The extent to which pungent substances from chilli, ginger, or pepper are found in breast milk has been even less researched than aroma and taste substances. For this reason, a scientific team led by TUM has now investigated whether these substances are transferred from food to breast milk and if so, which ones. Through extensive mass spectrometric analyses, the team has shown that already one hour after the consumption of a standardized curry dish, piperine is detectable in breast milk for several hours. “The observed maximum concentrations of 14 to 57 micrograms per litre were about 70- to 350-fold below the…
