FASIE to give $17,750 to Iceland Moss bread project

19 May '11
The project of the Science Institute of the Irkutsk State Technical University “Development and Commercialization of Food Products Based on Unique Nutrition Supplement – Iceland Moss” has been announced the winner of START-2011 contest, Nano News Net reports.

The institute is reportedly to receive $17,750 on the product development by the end of this year.

START Program is realized by the federally-funded Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovation Enterprises (FASIE).

Under plans, the granted funds are to be spent on production of bread baked with addition of a unique local material – Iceland Moss.

The University scientists have proved that adding Iceland Moss into bread production speeds up dough maturation process by 11% and extends the bread expiration date by 20%. The additive also gives dietary and functional features to the product, as well as influences human diet and solves problems of prevention of a number of diseases related to polysaccharide deficit.

The bread with Iceland Moss is recommended to all people, especially residents of cities with high pollution level and people engaged in harmful and extreme conditions.

There were 318 small firms from all over Russia participating in the START-11 contest. One hundred of them are to receive financial grants.
