The design and manufacture of functional foods is a growth industry the world over, not least in Australia and NZ. Quite simply, functional foods are foods which have been altered to improve or provide specific health benefits for the consumer. This program tells the story of one such product, the NewStart egg, developed by Professor Farrell of the University of New England. As the story unfolds, the following issues are carefully examined: * The so-called 'Cholesterol Conspiracy' * Benefits of Omega-3 fats * Broad concerns about functional foods * Marketing complications It's a fascinating story, not least because it explains `how do they alter what's inside those naturally-sealed egg packages?' This package contains the standard video plus a CD-Rom that is a complete teaching support tool. This innovation will make your lesson planning much easier!
