FEFU scientists have developed a diet cookie recipe in which part of the flour is replaced with algae. In addition to the abundance of healthy dietary fiber, the product contains iodine, a deficiency of which is felt everywhere.

According to the press service of the university, the novelty is planned to be released in the form of a cracker with the taste of crab and dessert sugar cookies. At the same time, most of the flour in them will be replaced by algae powder, which was extracted from the waters of the Far East.

According to the Department of Food Science and Technology of the FEFU School of Biomedicine, the calorie content of cookies remains at the level of similar traditional foods, but it turns out to be more useful due to the increased content of dietary fiber and iodine. At the same time, there are no harmful calories that spoil the figure in the product, it fits the definition of diet.

As the scientists specified, the cookies will contain organically bound iodine, which retains its properties during baking. Algae are also rich in polysaccharides, but experts have yet to find out if they retain useful qualities during heat treatment.
