This is the so-called hidden hunger. According to the food and agriculture organization of the UN, the famine suffering almost 2 billion people around the world. But soon this will be done thanks to the invention of the Novosibirsk scientists have created a substance that effectively coping with a hidden hunger.

First you need to understand what is meant by hidden hunger. First and foremost is the shortage of minerals and trace elements. In this case refers mainly flavonoids and antioxidants. Until recently, the only way out was to increase the consumption of foods containing these substances. However, Novosibirsk scientists from the Institute of chemistry of solids (ihtm) SB RAS have developed a method of encapsulation of these substances from the ash, green tea, Hypericum and viburnum in a special polysaccharide matrix. The result is a powder that can be added to almost any food.

This new additive does not affect the taste of food. Polysaccharide matrix dissolves only in the intestinal environment.
