BHU Students Develop Ice Cream Good For Kids Immunity & Diabetics

The Banaras Hindu University’s (BHU) Dairy Development and Food Technology Department has prepared a new herbal ice cream, which not only tastes good but also increases one’s immunity level.

The ice cream has been developed in four flavours — Tulsi (basil), Saunf (fennel seed), Mulethi (Liquorice) and a mixed flavour.

Under the guidance of research head Prof Dinesh Chandra Rai, two students — Vishal Jain and Shashank — have come up with this new ice cream after months of trial. Prof Rai said that the ice-cream would help in treating cold, cough and blood pressure and would serve as a functional food too.

“It will also help diabetic patients in lowering sugar levels.” He said.

Vishal Jain, one of the researchers, said that the ice-cream developed by them is rich in anti-oxidants, which will help children develop immunity.

Prof Rai said that the BHU was in talks with several ice-cream companies and also keen to share technology with those young persons who wanted to have a start-up. He said that such youths would be given a special training course for six months, reports

The students are now planning to develop ‘Shrikhand’ that will also have medicinal properties.
