        INEA is a five-year project using edible aroids as a model to improve clonally propagated root and tuber crops of tropical countries. INEA has been set up with three main aims: to help countries access plants of varied genetic backgrounds; to assist with breeding strategies; and to demonstrate the effective use of modern technologies. The effect of blanching on the antinutritional content was studied in cabbage, turnip, collard, sweetpotato and peanut leaves. All the vegetables contained various amounts of phytic acid, tannic acid and/or oxalic acid. Tannic acid was found in largest amounts ranging from mg/ g in cabbage to mg/ g in sweetpotato. Phytic acid content ranged from mg/ g in.

      Home-based vegetable production has been recognized as a nutrition- and gender-sensitive intervention that has the potential to improve nutrition in developing countries, yet evidence is lacking. While continuing to contribute a large proportion of the caloric availability in the Samoan diet compared to other foods, coconuts and coconut products, fruit and starchy root crops, which are all locally produced, have shown relatively little, if any, increase in dietary availability over time (Figure 3). From to , calories available.

      A new tool helps communities identify local fruits and vegetables that can improve their diets. But a disquieting review reveals that research is still ignoring most vegetables, a situation affecting many nutrient-dense foods. Although some major crops have been extensively collected, indigenous vegetables from tropical Asia, and especially from Myanmar, are poorly represented. Such vegetables have great potential to add vital nutrients to human diets (Yang and Hanson, ), diversify cropping systems (Subbarao et al., ), and increase smallholders' incomes and.

Eleven indigenous tropical vegetables studied included amaranth, pigeon pea, winged bean, Ceylon spinach, taro, edible hibiscus, breadfruit, swamp cabbage, sweetpotato, cassava, and Moringa. The findings suggested that these could supply more of the five essential nutrients than were available from the commonly eaten temperate-zone vegetables by: 3.

Efforts to improve diets in Kiribati and the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu and Tokelau, are a case in point. It is hard to grow crops on coral atolls, but volcanic islands often have rich soil, where fruit and vegetables grow more easily.

This book is concerned with the terrestrial vegetation of the Pacific islands in the tropical realm. Aquatic vegetation will only be treated marginally where appropriate. It is organized into 18 chapters that focus on the progress in the chemistry and nutrition of tropical foods.

After briefly discussing a variety of foods harvested in the Pacific region, this book examines food's sensory characteristics for food quality determination, such. Tropical Mariculture takes an in-depth look at developmental activities in a growing industry striving towards sustainability and environmental integrity.

All of the contributors to this book have considerable experience and expertise in the field of tropical mariculture, and this is the first book to bring expert contributions together.

Cassava was likely domesticated between 7, and 9, years ago in the Amazon and is now grown throughout the tropical regions of the world. Root crops are an essential part of historic Pacific island diets, but taro, sweet potato, and yam are the traditional root crops of the region.

WHO defines overweight as having a body mass index (BMI) equal to or more t and obesity as a BMI equal to or more than Diabetes prevalence among adults in the Pacific region is among the highest in the world; 47% in American Samoa compared with 13% in mainland USA, and it ranges from 14% to 44% elsewhere in the region.

Use of tropical vegetables to improve diets in the Pacific Region [RS] [] Utilization and composition of Oriental vegetables in Hawaii [B] []. Background: The role of processed foods in nutrition transition in the Pacific is receiving some attention in the context of a significant obesity and diet-related noncommunicable disease health burden.

However, trends, patterns and underlying drivers of processed food markets in the Pacific are not well understood. The aim of this study was to investigate recent trends and patterns of. found: Evensen, S.K. Use of tropical vegetables to improve diets in the Pacific Region, CIP t.p.

Similarly, “Protein Foods” recognizes that traditional Pacific diets were not heavily dependent on red meat, and that people can get their protein in a variety of ways.For more information on nutrition, diet analysis, or use of the food guide pyramid, contact your local EFNEP agent.

Taro is a staple food on some of the Pacific islands, such as Hawai'i, Fiji, and New Caledonia, and also in West Africa. The Hawaiian national dish, poi, is a thick paste made from taro that has been boiled, mashed, and fermented.
