Smart foods
  • What are smart foods?Smart foods are those that
    have been developed through the invention of new
    or improved processes, for example, as a result
    of man-made materials/ingredients or human
    intervention in other words, not naturally
    occurring changes.
  • Smart foods may
  • have a function, other than that of providing
    energy and
  • nutrients
  • perform a particular function never achieved by
  • conventional foods
  • have been developed for specialised
    applications, but some
  • eventually become available for general use.

Smart foods include 1. Modified starches. 2.
Functional foods, e.g. cholesterol lowering
spreads, probiotic yogurts, fortified
eggs. 3. Meat analogues, e.g. textured vegetable
protein (TVP), myco- protein and tofu. 4.
Encapsulation technology, e.g. encapsulated
flavours in confectionery 5. Modern
biotechnology, e.g. soy bean, tomato plant,
modified enzymes, e.g. chymosin.

Meat Analogues
TVP is used in vegetarian shepherds pie to
provide the main source of protein.

Myco-protein is used in fillets to provide a
chicken like texture.
Tofu absorbs flavours, so is used as a meat
alternative in stir-fries.
Meat Analogues

Why become a Vegetarian?
  • Most people become vegetarian because they
    believe it is wrong to slaughter animals for food
    and because they are opposed to the cruelty and
    suffering inflicted upon the billions of animals
    reared for food.

Why become a Vegetarian?
  • The effect of meat production on the environment,
    such as the destruction of vast areas of
    rainforest for cattle ranching, is another reason
    commonly cited for becoming vegetarian.

Why become a Vegetarian?
  • People may become vegetarian because of the links
    between meat production and poverty and famine in
    developing countries.

Why become a Vegetarian?
  • The health advantages of a vegetarian diet are
    another commonly cited reason to become
    vegetarian, particularly among adults. A dislike
    of the taste of meat and religious reasons may
    also be a factor.
