On April 7, a blind tasting of seafood products for people over 65 years old was held in Vigo. This was the second tasting, after the one held in Orense last October.
The event, which took place at the headquarters of Afundación in Vigo, included a talk on healthy eating given by the nutrition expert Mr. Manuel Penín, an hedonic test of food products and a group product evaluation.
In order for the tasting participants to be as objective as possible, the details of the products to be tasted were made known at the end of the activity.
Both the training on healthy eating and the product tasting activity were very well received. Thirty-four people participated in the talk and thirty-one in the tasting. Three different recipes were tasted and discussed after the tasting. In addition, the SEAFOOD-AGE project was presented to the participants.
The product was well accepted and aroused a lot of interest, both with regard to the nutritional approach and the use of discards and the revaluation of marine products.
Afundación and Espazo+60 collaborated in the development of the activity, both with the people who attended and with the cession of their facilities.
Collaboration from IIM, OPROMAR, IRMRS, IPMA, BENBOA, NOTPLA, Fundación Dorzán and CETMAR was appreciated during the organization of in this event.
