FILIPINO FAVORITE RECIPES NOW READY TO SERVE

Mildred O. Guinrindola., NAMD

I can imagine how Filipinos abroad miss our native sumptuous gastronomic delights. These include the delectable kare-kare, pinakbet, putsero and sinigang that are uniquely Filipino.

Inspired by the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) around the world and the product niché for the global market in mind, the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST) and the Technology Innovation for Commercialization Program (TECHNICOM) reformulated and standardized the recipe for the vegetable mixes of kare-kare, pinakbet, putsero and sinigang. Now, these canned vegetable mixes are ready-to-serve or can be added with meat.

Acceptability and safety of these canned products were determined through sensory evaluation and commercial sterility test. Scale-up production for cost analysis and shelf-life studies were also done. These products are now open for technology transfer to interested entrepreneurs.

With these ready-to-serve recipes to proliferate the global market, it is a home away from home for Filipinos around the world.
