Nutrition, Food Science, Cooking….

So what’s with the BLUE STRAWBERRY…?

we have moved permanently to http:www.StrawberryBlu.com

Blue Strawberry is a genetically modified food…

To start with, genetically modified foods are foods that are engineered through an artificial transfer (insertion or deletion) of genes; the genes usually come from different species.

Scientists have found that the “Arctic Flounder Fish” produces an antifreeze to protect itself in freezing waters.

Thus, the gene that regulates the production of the antifreeze trait was taken from the Arctic Flounder fish and was genetically introduced into the strawberry plant. As a result, a blue strawberry plant is formed.

The blue strawberry plant can withstand icy freezing temperatures; thus wouldn’t degrade or turn into mush after being placed in the freezer.
