Coming soon: vegetarian chicken that tastes just like chicken!

Tue, Jun 8 02:15 PM
Washington, June 8 (ANI): Scientists at the University of Missouri may have finally cracked the code to realistic tasting fake chicken with the first soy product.
Lots of meat substitutes are on the market right now, such as the ever-popular Tofurky. But there isn't one that tastes like chicken or, more importantly to these researchers, has the texture of real meat.
Fu-Hung Hsieh, a professor of biological engineering and food science at MU, and colleagues have now created the first soy product that can be flavoured to taste like chicken, but also breaks apart in your mouth the way chicken does.
The fake meat is made by mixing up a batter of soy protein, wheat flour and water, and then pushing the batter through a high-heat extruder.
Hsieh said that the mixture firms up and develops a stringy, chicken-like texture.
Although the team hasn't perfected the taste yet, the texture seems to be right on.
"But the way the meat broke across my teeth felt exactly how boneless chicken breast does," Discovery News quoted Time Magazine's John Cloud, who visited the laboratory where the soy-chicken is being made, as saying.
"It was slightly fibrous but not fatty. The soy wasn't mashed together as in a veggie burger; rather, it was more idiosyncratic, uneven, al dente-in other words, meatlike," he added.
The research has been published in the Journal of Food and Agricultural Chemistry, Journal of Food Science, and Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society.

Do we Vegetarians really need this for the sake of so called Chiken taste?

Haryana ex-IGP walks free despite FIR in molestation case

CHANDIGARH/YAMUNANAGAR: Yet another "tainted" top cop walks free in Haryana, with former IGP MS Ahlawat, under fire for allegedly molesting a woman in 2002, evading arrest even after an FIR was filed in Yamunagar on Tuesday, eight years after the incident.

Even as the country boils over in anger against former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore -- convicted of molesting Ruchika Girhotra in 1990 when she was just 14 -- for having roamed free for almost 20 years before he was sent to jail, the Haryana police seems to be wary of arresting Ahlawat, who was then superintendent of police at Yamunagar.

The victim, Arvinder Kaur, had met Ahlawat in 2002 after she was threatened by some of the accused in a dowry case lodged against her husband.

On Wednesday, both Haryana home minister Gopal Kanda and DGP RS Dalal refused to answer calls from TOI. Ahlawat, too, could not be contacted.

It took more than eight years to lodge an FIR against Ahlawat despite a long struggle by the victim, now 36. While a number of inquiry committees were set up by the Haryana government in this period, yet another probe was ordered on Tuesday by a police team.

Ahlawat has been charged with outraging modesty of a woman, assault and criminal intimidation.

"We will arrest the accused as soon as we get any substantial evidence against him," superintendent of police, Yamunanagar, Sibash Kabiraj told TOI. "A high-level probe team, headed by a DIG was probing the matter and decision on filing an FIR was pending at a higher level," said Kabiraj, when asked why an FIR was not lodged in eight years.

"A special team has been set up to look into the case on Wednesday. It has collected all documents from the state headquarter. We will find out why the case was not registered in last eight years," said the Kabiraj, who is monitoring the progress of the case.

The delay, however, has left the people enraged. "They should have registered the FIR immediately as in cognizable offences, police are duty-bound to register an FIR as per section 154 of CrPC," said Kulbir Singh Dhaliwal, advocate, Punjab and Haryana High Court.

The complainant, Arvinder, a lawyer herself, is not satisfied with the police action on her complaint and said that Ahlawat should have been booked for attempt to rape.

"He (Ahlawat) took me to his bed room at his official residence of Yamunanagar where he attempted to rape me. However, I managed to escape from his clutches. So, he must be booked for attempt to rape in place of outraging the modesty of a woman," she added

"The FIR has been registered on the basis of complaint of 2008, though, the case should have been lodged on the basis of my latest complaint submitted to CM BS Hooda on Saturday at his Chandigarh residence," she added.

The SP said that they can add more sections in the FIR, if the charges proved during the police probe.

Five foods every woman must eat

We bring to you five nutritional eats that every woman should include in her diet. Happy eating!

Leafy vegetables

It is not possible to meet your nutritional needs without having leafy vegetables in your diet. Spinach, legumes, asparagus, lettuce, fenugreek leaves, broccoli are available in abundance and are huge sources of fibre, Vitamin C and K, folic acid. It is also a vision protector and provides four essential minerals, i.e. calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. Try to have it daily in your diet and darker the better.

Whole grains

Whole grains have up to 96 per cent more fibre and essential nutrients and vitamins than refined grains. Advises diet expert Honey Shah, "I advise my clients to have whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, and brown rice as they are high in essential nutrients and do not contribute to weight gain. You can start your day with whole wheat cereal or a whole wheat bread toast."


Make nuts an essential ingredient in your diet. Sprinkle it on salads or breakfast cereals or stir them into yoghurt because they are an excellent source of protein, magnesium and B & E vitamins. They are useful in fighting heart disease and cancer. Nuts are high in fat calories, but their fat is the heart-healthy kind. You can also eat them as an evening snack. But make sure you don't overdo them. About a quarter cup or about 15-20 almonds, cashews, walnuts are good enough a week.


Low fat or plain yoghurt is a great source of vitamins, protein and calcium. It also has healthy bacteria which can fight diseases. "Three to four cups a week is good enough for your diet. But make sure you don't add sugar to it. Instead choose plain yoghurt and add fruits or berries to it," suggests dietician Pinky.


Ever wondered why most of the diet fibre products have berries in them? Reason being berries are high in fill-you-up fibre and also helps curb weight. Berries have more protective plant antioxidants than almost any other food. These antioxidants not only lower your disease risks, but also help prevent memory loss. You can have a bowl full of them thrice a week. It could be fresh or frozen, benefits stay!

Mangoes are high on health

The King of Fruits has several benefits, so indulge your senses this season in some mangoes.

Not only do they taste great, but mangoes are also loaded with several qualities that are excellent for your health. They are rich in powerful antioxidants that are known to neutralise free radicals that cause damage to cells and lead to health problems like heart disease, premature aging and cancer among other things. Here’s why you should consume them...

- With its high iron content, mangoes are excellent for pregnant women and those who suffer from anaemia. But do consult with your doctor beforehand on how much is suitable.

- Constantly complaining about clogged pores? Place mango slices on your skin and then wash off after 10 minutes.

- If you suffer from indigestion problems, nothing will help you as much as a mango. They’re known to give relief from acidity and aid proper digestion since they contain digestive enzymes that help break down proteins.

- Rich in potassium, mangoes reduce high blood pressure. They also contain pectin, a soluble dietary fibre that is known to lower blood cholesterol levels.

- Trying to put on weight? Include mangoes in your diet. Since it is rich in calories as well as carbohydrates, it could be the perfect fruit to have.

- Some studies say that eating mangoes reduces the risk of kidney stone formation.

- In Chinese medicine, mangoes are considered sweet and sour with a cooling energy. They are useful for those suffering from anaemia, bleeding gums, cough, fever, nausea and even sea sickness.

- Studying for exams? This fruit is rich in glutamine acid— an important protein for concentration and memory. Instead of snacking on unhealthy chips and cookies, why not feast on slices of mangoes instead.

- Though they are traditionally not considered as aphrodisiacs, mangoes contain Vitamin E which helps boost one’s sex life. The vitamin works to regulate the body’s sex hormones.

If nothing else, eat a mango just because it won’t be in season forever.

Give me some sunshine!

We tell you why sunlight is so essential for you

While roaming around in the sun for hours without wearing a cap or adequate sunscreen is foolish, experts say that a few minutes in direct sunlight is good for you. Spending 10 to 15 minutes everyday in the sun is essential for your body to make enough Vitamin D, which is known to decrease the chances for bone diseases. Lack of vitamin D can also cause poor metabolism as well as slow down the healing of abrasions and cuts. Studies also say that lack of sunlight can worsen the feelings of depression in some people. Here’s why you should include a bit of sunshine in your life...

- Spending a few minutes in sunshine gives you a healthy glow. Over time, your body will also build up a natural resistance to the detrimental effects of ultraviolet light.

- Just a little bit of tanning is fine. Your skin will be more resistant to sunburns and infections after a while.

- A little time spent in the sun is known to be effective in getting rid of acne, boils, and psoriasis, among other skin problems.

- Sunlight is known to stimulate appetite and improve digestion and metabolism as well strengthen your immune system by increasing the number of white blood cells in your blood.

- If you don’t have good blood circulation, it means you aren’t getting enough sunlight. Sun-light will help produce more red blood cells that increase the amount of oxygen in you blood.

- Not getting adequate sunshine during the day will affect your sleep at night. Sunlight increases the output of melatonin in your body, which is known to make you sleep better.

- Feeling out of sorts? Take a 10 minute walk outdoors or open all the windows of your house and let natural light pour in. You’ll notice the difference.

- Sunlight improves liver functioning by breaking down toxins that lead to various diseases.

3679  The Lounge / The Astro Section / Mars and Mangalik Dosha on: June 07, 2010, 12:18:58 PM
Mars and Mangalik Dosha

Astrologically Mars is seen as a cruel planet. Mars happens to be natural significator of stamina, courage, anger, desire, opponents, immovable properties, friends, enmity, energy, violence, cruelty to name a few. In terms of marriage it acquires supreme importance as here it signifies passion, the husband, the marital knot, sex, etc. Further, the role of Mars in begetting progeny cannot be underestimated.

Formation of Mangalik Dosha in the Horoscope.

Mars placement in certain houses in the horoscope results in the mangalik dosha . mangalik dosha is considered from the Ascendant as it signifies self, health, longevity, appearance, character, success and failure in life among other things. It is also seen from the Moon as it signifies mind, emotions, infancy, personality, bovines, inclinations and emotions. mangalik dosha is considered from Venus as it signifies marriage, sexual matters, love, beloved and bed pleasures. There are also rules for cancellation of mangalik dosha even if this dosha is present in the horoscope.

Cancellation of Mangalik Dosha

Following are the cases where Mars even if it is in 2nd, 12th, 4th, 7th or 8th house the manglik dosha gets cancelled: -

• When Mars in Aries, Scorpio, Capricorn, Leo, Cancer, Sagittarius and Pisces.
• If Mars is in the 2nd house but in Gemini, Virgo.
• If Mars is in 12th house but in Taurus and Libra.
• For Aquarius ascendant Mars in the 4th/8th house.
• If benefic Jupiter or Venus is in ascendant.
• If Mars is in conjunction or aspected by Jupiter or Moon.
• If Mars is in conjunction/aspected by Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Rahu.

Thus we see that percentage of manglik cases decreases if we consider these factors. In consideration of marriage, various factors other than manglik dosha should be carefully be examined for a long and successful marriage.
