Health benefits of jackfruit
100 g of edible jackfruit bulbs provide 95 calories. The fruit is made of soft, easily digestible flesh (bulbs) made up of simple sugars like fructose and sucrose that when eaten replenishes energy and revitalizes the body instantly.

Jackfruit is rich in dietary fiber, which makes it a good bulk laxative. The fiber content helps protect the colon mucous membrane by binding to and eliminating cancer-causing chemicals from the colon.

Fresh fruit has small but significant amounts of vitamin-A, and flavonoid pigments such as carotene-ß, xanthin, lutein and cryptoxanthin-ß. Together, these compounds play vital roles in antioxidant and vision functions. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining integrity of mucusa and skin. Consumption of natural fruits rich in vitamin-A, and carotenes has been found to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

Jackfruit is a good source of antioxidant vitamin-C, provides about 13.7 mg or 23% of RDA. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful free radicals.

It is one of the rare fruits that is rich in B-complex group of vitamins. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid.

Further, fresh fruit is a good source of potassium, magnesium, manganese, and iron. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

Coffee is drink in virtually all countries in the world. Coffee is actually a drink that brings all kinds of health benefits. This article lists all of the health benefits you can get from enjoying a cup of coffee daily. Coffee is known for its health benefits as it contains antioxidants. These antioxidants are known to provide anti-aging properties and protection against degenerative diseases such as cancers. In fact, research has found that some people get their main antioxidant fix from coffee. For Americans, coffee is the number one source of antioxidants. Although there are other sources of antioxidants, such as fresh fruits and veggies, the human body is able to absorb more of these beneficial substances from coffee. Coffee contains caffeine which is a natural stimulant. It helps sports men and women recover from extreme exercise. "If you give an athlete more petrol in the tank, they will go further. What we've done is to give them 50-60 per cent more petrol," said Professor John Hawley, head of the exercise metabolism group at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Victoria, Australia. In the study, athletes cycled to exhaustion before eating a carbohydrate sports drink, bar or gel with a high caffeine dose immediately after the exercise, and then two hours later.

Coffee

...Coffee is consumed by many individuals to aid with energy and alertness. Coffee is hot, aromatic, and considered enjoyable by many. The first documented use of coffee was in the 15th century in the Sufi monasteries in the part of the world that is now Yemen. The Sufis used the beverage to aid in concentration and to keep themselves alert while performing night time devotions. While most will have no problem drinking one or two cups of coffee a day, drinking too much coffee can cause health problems and lead to coffee dependence. Caffeine in coffee is the drug that causes many of the effects of coffee. Caffeine is a stimulant which many people use to wake up in the morning and stay mentally alert throughout the day. Studies show that 30 milligrams or less of caffeine can alter mood and affect behavior and 100 mg per day can lead to physical dependence and withdrawal symptoms upon abstinence. The most common withdrawal symptoms: headache, fatigue, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, decreased motivation, irritability, depression, anxiety, flu-like symptoms, and impaired cognitive performance. Students in college, for example, can easily become dependent on coffee. Classroom hours are demanding and students must be alert. College also requires many hours of concentration and focus to complete assignments, and prepare for test. Students must also find time for activities of daily living, and......

...Healthy Coffee Alternatives In the Hungry For Change Book we discuss the addictive nature of caffeine and when consumed in large quantities, can lead to adrenal fatigue.

Coffee from Ampalaya Seeds

...Coffee from Ampalaya Seeds Coffee is a brewed beverage with a dark, slightly acidic flavor prepared from the roasted seeds of the coffee plant, called coffee beans. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world. Coffee can have a stimulating effect on humans due to its caffeine content. It is one of the most-consumed beverages in the world. Ampalaya (Momordica charantia Linn.), also known as Bitter Melon, is a crawling vine that grows well in tropical countries, particularly in the Philippines. Known for its bitter taste, the Ampalaya is at once a staple ingredient in Filipino and Asian cuisines and a reliable home remedy for various illnesses, particularly diabetes. But aside from its role as a healthy food, Ampalaya is especially valued by diabetics for its known anti-diabetes. The researcher decided to use ampalaya seeds instead of throwing it and decided to use the seeds as coffee to know if it could be a good alternative to the commercial one. Objectives: 1. To produce coffee using ampalaya seeds as the main ingredient. 2. To determine if the ampalaya seeds have considerable characteristics of the products in terms of color, aroma, taste, and acidity. 3. To determine and compare the levels of acceptability of the coffee samples. Hypotheses: 1. There is no significant difference among the different ampalaya coffee samples developed in terms of their color, aroma, taste, and acidity. 2. There is......

Coffee

...Compare and contrast essay Coffee Everyone has heard or seen, at least a couple, quips about mornings and coffee. “Coffee-the jet fuel for the morning impaired.” “Sure I’m addicted. But, the life my morning coffee saves today, might just be yours.” There are several options when it comes to getting a morning caffeine jolt, espresso, latte, cappuccino, and plain brewed coffee. Two popular choices are the latte and brewed coffee. A latte is an espresso drink with steamed milk, while a brewed coffee is hot water that has been ran through coffee grounds and a filter. The cups look the same; the substance looks similar; and they both give you a caffeine jolt. Even though they may look similar, and they have some of the same ingredients, there are a few important facts to consider when choosing a morning pick me up. Four major differences are the taste, caffeine content, cost, and nutritional value. First, taste is a major deciding factor. A latte is made with equal parts espresso and milk, so it has a sweet flavor, and because it is made with milk it has a creamy texture that makes people feel all fuzzy inside, like a favorite pair of slippers. Also, flavors like mocha, vanilla, caramel, and mint, can be added to Lattes to give it a unique taste. Meanwhile, brewed coffee has more the consistency of water and is bitter, but, at the same time, it still has the unique flavor that many have come to associate with their morning rituals. To counter the bitterness, flavors,......

Seed in Bangladesh

... Seed is an important vehicle for technological innovations. And good seed is one of the first and foremost prerequisites for a healthy and vigorous crop. However, seed is more than an agricultural input and a source of new technologies. A range of developmental, socio-economic, environmental and political issues are also covered by seed: food security, natural resource management, agro biodiversity, intellectual property rights, social dynamics, gender, cultural and religious dimensions, policies and regulations. And seed technology is the total of all the systematic activities necessary for production and supply of quality seeds in the crop culture of a country. These systematic activities are: multiplication, processing and preservation, quality assurance, marketing and finally ensuring the use of seed by farmers. The sequential approach in ensuring the use of quality seed has been undertaken in mid seventies and the quantity of seeds supplied by following the seed technological activities is only 6% of the total requirement. Rest of the seed used in the country is almost of unknown quality. Researches undertaken in these areas are inadequate and fragmentary. History of Seed System Development Traditionally, farmers keep a part of their produce as seed and use it for subsequent crop production. They also collect seed from their neighbors’ when necessary. Seeds were also sold in village markets. Seed traders were......
