Incredible Foods is a food technology company founded by Harvard Professor David Edwards pioneering the future of food. Products by the company currently sell in USA stores.
Our collaboration with Incredible Foods is to design, clinically evaluate, and produce ChowBerries” as healthy snacks for children — initially in the Sierra Leone school system and eventually throughout Africa —made of garri cores with fruit skins inside tapioca (cassava root) containers. The snacks will contain a unique combination of soluble iron, enhancers, protectors, and microbiome stabilizers to achieve efficacy in anaemic children with acceptable side effects. In-school screening of anaemic children will identify children who will receive ChowBerries with/ without iron fortification. Long term Chowberries aims to reach African children with healthy nutrient-dense snacks that improves their health, nutrition access and general wellbeing.
Chowberry being part of the World Frontiers Forum Convergence Project is collaborating with Incredible Foods through the charitable donation of its edible packaging breakthrough food technology discovery to create nutrition bites known as “ChowBerries” Chowberries are fruit, vegetable and cassava root finger food forms surrounded by a grape-like skin comprised of a bilayer formed by alginate and chitosan polysaccharides.
