#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Specialists of the Moscow State University of Technology and Management (MGUTU) named after. Razumovsky created a powder from basidomycete mushrooms and minerals that can provide adequate nutrition for workers who came to the Arctic and protect their health.
As Gazeta.ru writes with reference to Igor Nikitin, head of the Plant and Animal Raw Materials Food Biotechnology Department at Moscow State University of Technology, scientists grew the mushroom in a nutrient medium and simultaneously saturated it with various microelements, then dried it and turned it into a dietary supplement.
“This is a real domestic know-how, which has no analogues yet. Japanese and American researchers grow mushrooms and enrich them, but do not dry them. And no one had enriched them with minerals in the process of growth, our scientists were the first to do this”, said Igor Nikitin.
Some basidomycetes have antitumor, antidiabetic, hypoglycemic properties and act on the body as an anti-inflammatory. In addition, mushrooms during growth are easily enriched with magnesium, selenium, and zinc.
The most suitable mushroom for the arctic dietary supplement was oyster mushroom. It grows well, adapts quickly and has a neutral taste.
Earlier, we reported that the Taimyr venison turned out to be the richest in micro- and macroelements, and the char from Taimyr takes roots well in aquaculture on the mainland: they want to grow this fish for sale. We also reported that young scientists of the region will receive 100 thousand for development.
