Q9. Which food’s absorption of nutrition is better when it is eaten for breakfast?
(A) Meat (vitamin B1) (B) Fish (EPA, DHA)
A9. (B) Fish.
According to a research using a mouse, a mouse eating feed with fish oil in the morning had more EPA and DHA in the blood than a mouse eating feed with fish oil in the evening. EPA and DHA are burned during sleep so when EPA and DHA are taken in the morning, they are not burned but stored in the body.
Q10. Which way of eating can you take more nutrition of fish (EPA, DHA)?
(A) Grilled fish (B) Raw fish
A10. (B) Raw fish. When fish is grilled, EPA and DHA decrease by about 20 %. EPA and DHA (Omega-3) are weak against heat. To avoid losing 20 % of EPA and DHA when they are grilled, it is good to grill in a foil wrapper and eat everything in the foil including the flown oil.
Q11. Which fish is rich in nutrition (EPA and DHA)?
(A) Cultured fish (B) Natural fish
A11. (A) Cultured fish. Because cultured fish is given good feed steadily compared to natural fish.
Total of EPA and DHA required to take for a day is about 1 gram which is 4 pieces of cultured tuna sushi, but if it is natural, 40 pieces are required.
By the way, by what time should breakfast be eaten at the latest?
Breakfast should be eaten by 9 am because blood sugar reaches its peak at 2 hours after eating and gradually lowers so if you eat breakfast before 9 am, at the time of lunch, blood sugar becomes low.
According to the latest research that was performed to 5000 students about the contents and the amount of their breakfast for 6 months, the rate that the students who ate breakfast got better grade than the average is more than 2 times as high as the rate of the students who didn’t eat breakfast.
It is important to absorb glucose taken from breakfast slowly and to keep sending the glucose to the brain for a long.
Q12. Which bread can provide the brain with energy for a long time?
(A) White bread (B) Whole wheat bread
A12. (B) Whole wheat bread. It is important that glucose as energy for the brain is in the blood stream stably. Dietary fiber of whole wheat suppresses the absorption of glucose so the supply of glucose to the brain becomes slower. While white bread contains about 2.7 grams of dietary fiber per 100 grams, whole wheat bread contains about 11.2 grams of dietary fiber per 100 grams.
Q13. Which bread can easily provide the brain with energy for a long time?
(A) Toasted bread (B) Not toasted bread
A13. (A) Toasted bread. Starch of bread becomes difficult to absorb by toasting, making the absorption of sugar slower and suppressing the rapid elevation of blood sugar.
Q14. According to the latest research, if you eat breakfast, you don’t gain weight. What is the reason?
(A) Because the amount of sweat increases. (B) Because the amount of meals per day decreases.
A14. (B) Because the amount of meals per day decreases. If you skip breakfast, you feel hungry and your brain orders you to eat a lot.
According to the latest research of University of Missouri, when you eat high protein food such as eggs, cheese, yogurt, natto or young anchovies for breakfast, the activities related to appetite in the brain declines.
