In medieval Europe, beer is activeIt was used by doctors for the treatment of kidney diseases and asthma, but today the drink is considered one of the main causes of hangovers and the development of the so-called “beer heart”, when the muscular organ works in a strengthened mode and sags. Chemists from the Ural Federal University, and their colleagues at ITMO University in St. Petersburg, decided to create a truly useful beer that does not cause a hangover and saturates the body with useful substances.
According to Professor Elena Kovaleva, their work inmainly consists in changing the properties of the yeast by controlling the temperature of the surrounding conditions, as well as in the use of flavorings. To remove the hangover effect, the researchers decided to upgrade the composition of the beer, and to provide drink drinkers with even more vitamins, use waste beer pellets to produce nutritional bars.
Healthy Beer with Vitamins
As part of the new beers, researchers wantadd kudzu root extracts containing isoflavone, which reduces the toxic effects of alcohol. Also among the components may also be algae chlorella, which also contribute to the weakening of the hungover effect. Thus, drink lovers will be able to get the vitamins B1 and B2 contained in it, as well as nicotinic acid that is good for the heart - and all this without a hangover.
To provide people with an extra setvitamins, scientists want to develop a recipe for cookies and bars from the waste product - beer pellets. It is the boiled malt left after boiling and pumping the wort, which is usually used for feeding animals. This is despite the fact that it contains starch, fiber, vitamins and prebiotics - substances that are particularly beneficial to humans.
Raw beer pellets are too hard foruse, but after fermentation, they are suitable as an additive to oatmeal for food, for example, oatmeal cookies, - explained Elena Kovaleva.
Deputy director of the center for work withenterprises Alexander Cherepanov shared that the Ural Federal University is ready to cooperate with interested manufacturers. However, the date of the release of bespohmelnogo beer and bars with vitamins is still unknown.
Beer will be a scarce drink.
Meanwhile, the science journal Nature Plants Mondayrecently published results of a study predicting a beer shortage in 2099. Such a turn of events may occur due to climate change - the world barley harvest will be reduced from 3 to 17%, and the drink will become very expensive. With the onset of this time, some countries will be able to make good money on the deficit - you can read about it in our material.
