“Rumex sp. has a high protein content within and can be turned into varieties of food products”
STRIVING FOR GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY
Protein sources may be readily available from animal sources such as chicken, meat, and fish. Yet, for countries that have trouble getting protein from these sources, protein malnutrition especially in children greatly affects their development, both physically and mentally. Aid packages for protein sources from animals are difficult to provide to these countries because it is perishable, difficult to handle and expensive. So, better alternatives need to be sought to provide protein sources to countries that have problems of shortage of these protein sources.
As a result of the study that has been conducted, it was found that Rumex sp. plant has a high protein content within. This protein-rich plant can be processed into flour and can be turned into varieties of food products such as noodles, biscuits, and even into plant-based meat. This will solve a lot of issues because the flour from this plant has a long shelf life, is not easily damaged, easy to handle and the price is relatively low.
Apart from that, people from these countries can also grow this plant for their own consumption as well as be able to generate their economy to improve their standards of living. For now, the program will be conducted in Zimbabwe with guidance and tutoring from Greenfeed. Greenfeed has conducted an in-depth study on the effectiveness of Greenfeed Slow Release Fertilizer on the growth of Rumex sp. and we are committed to ensuring global food security through a sustainable approach.
