Breathing new life into old bread

Life Science

Researchers in Singapore proved some good gut instincts when they thought about how to reduce food waste.

Instead of throwing away white bread that had in vain patiently sat on supermarket shelves to be turned into sandwiches, they mixed it with water and created a smoothie of sorts.

Pasteurized and polished up with a dash of probiotic bacteria and yeast, the foundation for a potential new star on the food horizon was laid in one day.

For up to six weeks in the fridge this is a non-dairy, no-fuss fizzy and slightly sweet health drink catering to the environment-conscious. Cheers.
