We are not accustomed to the use of jellyfish in food, and in Asia they are already considered a recognized delicacy. Probably for us, they are not so well suited as a food, but Danish scientists have taken to fix it. They found a way to quickly convert the soft tentacles of jellyfish in crispy snacks. In other words, they have made chips from jellyfish.
The chips were created using ethanol. Mathias P. Slanderous, doctoral candidate from the University of southern Denmark in Odense, believes that this product may cause gastronomic interest. First, Medusa is 5% protein and 95% water. They are low in calories and contain almost no fat. In addition, jellyfish are rich in vitamin B12, magnesium, phosphorus, iron and selenium.
In addition, the researchers drew attention to the jellyfish for the reason that a lot of them and they grow quickly. Jellyfish can survive in very harsh conditions. Other marine species are dying due to overfishing and climate change.
The Danish scientists are using ethanol in order to make a jellyfish-like chips, but they are still exploring the possibility of the issue of transformation of this product in commercially viable. It is known that in Asia, non-venomous species are marinated in salt for several weeks and used as the brine.
