Edamame (Green Soybeans)
Edamame which is rich in protein among vegetables is good to increase muscles and prevent summer heat fatigue.
Edamame is rich in vitamin B1 which is good to recover from fatigue.
100 grams of edamame contains vitamin B1 of 2.5 pieces of garlic (Fig. 5).
Since edamame is young beans, they store a lot of nutrition necessary to grow.
Q6. Which cooking method can enrich the nutrition of edamame most? (Fig. 6)
(A) Rice cooked with edamame (B) Fried edamame with other vegetables
A6. (A) Rice cooked with edamame
In the case of rice cooked with edamame, rice absorbs the nutrition of edamame dissolved in water without the nutrition flowing out. Also because it is heated slowly, both rice and edamame will be much sweeter by the action of an enzyme.
Q7. Which ingredient can enrich the nutrition of edamame most?
(A) Salmon (B) Cheese
A7. (A) Salmon
Salmon is rich in astaxanthin. Salmon is originally fish with white flesh, but salmon eats a kind of shrimp to overcome the stress of swimming upstream and produces astaxanthin, becoming fish with red flesh.
Antioxidant effect of astaxanthin is 6000 times stronger than vitamin C.
Salmon can supply vitamin D which edamame doesn’t have. Rice cooked with salmon and edamame is recommended.
Vitamin D deficiency rickets is caused by lack of vitamin D, having symptoms like weak and soft bones, in the severe cases, skeletal deformities. The causes of deficient vitamin D is too much UV protection, lack of playing outside and not taking ingredients containing vitamin D such as eggs, fish or mushrooms.
