A scientist has done what every pizza-loving person has always secretly hoped for: he’s created the first “nutritionally balanced” pizza, which he claims is ok to eat three times a day, every day.
Mike Lean from Glasgow University claims his creation contains 30 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamins and minerals, as well as a third of the recommended amount of calories, protein and carbohydrates. Here’s what Lean told the BBC:
“I researched the market and found that seaweed was an interesting new ingredient being used in artisan bread. So we used that as a way of reducing the salt level. The sodium content of seaweed is about 3.5 percent compared to 40 percent in salt. There’s iodine in there, vitamin B12, all sorts of things. And the flavour is excellent as well.”
The pizza is said to include seaweed (which is now being used in a lot of artisanal breads), red peppers and iodine. How does it taste? Good enough that a national grocery chain in England is considering stocking it.
