Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001]  The present invention relates generally to foodstuffs, and more particularly to a scientifically formulated foodstuff with comprehensive nutrition and convenience for consumption.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION



[0002]  People view food as a primary need. People cannot live without food, in order to meet the needs of mankind, people grow, culture and process a lot of food for people to choose from. Scientific development has greatly enriched human's diet; however, because human do not consume correct and healthy diet and conduct reasonable amount of exercise, human's health is threatened. According to an incomplete statistics, the overweight population in developed society has a nearly 8% annual growth rate, while the overweight population in some developing countries has an annual growth rate of 11%. Excessive obesity has caused a series of "modern diseases," such as hypertension, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes and malignancies. In some poor areas and countries, food and nutrition are insufficient, the average life expectancy is low, and infant mortality is much higher than in developed countries.

[0003]  There are many reasons causing the increase in obesity population or low average life expectancy, but the direct reason is that people do not get a scientifically formulated health food with comprehensive nutrition. Therefore, the industry needs to address the above-mentioned issues as soon as possible.

[0016]  According to the above formula, preparation method of the comprehensively nutritious instant food of the present invention may be carried out by the following steps:

Step 1: Firstly, rice powder and water are mixed in a ratio of 1 : 5, cooked for 5 minutes, meshed with 400 mesh sieve, dried, and refined into powder for use;

Step 2: Soybeans are peeled and mixed with water at a ratio of 1: 5, boiled for 9 minutes, then passed through a 400-mesh sieve, dried and refined into soybean powder for use;

Step 3: Finally, all of the raw ingredients are weighed according to the selected proportions, uniformly mixed and packaged.



[0017]  The present invention is inherited from the family, passed down several generations, and is perfected after continuous research and clinical trials. Especially in the past 6 years, hundreds of consumers of different age groups were followed up for several times. The test results are as follows:

[0018]  210 food consumers were divided into three groups A1, A2 and A3 according to their ages, and were asked to consume the general type, the low sugar type, and the low calorie type for 8 consecutive months (300-600 grams per day, divided into breakfast and dinner). Above 83% of the food consumers maintained weights within a healthy range (BMI = kg / m 2; BMI between 18 and 25 is considered normal body weight; BMI more than 25 is considered overweight; BMI greater than 30 is considered obese); more than 78% of the food consumers have blood pressure, blood lipids and blood sugar indicators remained within medical standards (see the table below). For those who have heavier body weights or higher blood pressure, blood lipids and blood sugar, their conditions had greatly improved after consumption of the food for an extended amount of time.
Sample Age A1 A2 A3
35-45 45-60 61-70
Number of Consumers 85 65 60
 Within healthy weight range 89% 83% 85%
three indicators for blood pressure, blood lipids and blood sugar remain within medical standards 92% 78% 84%
