Project Title CumaMix
Project Category Innovation
Abstract We live in a fast-paced life which in a way has resulted in reduced time for food preparation. Hence, health supplements are essential. This idea of having a more reliant and easy to prepare health supplement that allows one to be consistent with nutrition has initiated in CumaMix product. The idea is derived from oriental medicine used and practiced for centuries as health supplement. The vital ingredients are turmeric (Curcuma longa), palm sugar (Nypa fruitcans), black pepper (Piper nigrum) and tamarind (Tamarindus indica) which are easily found in the local market. Historically, these ingredients have been proven to have clinical benefits through experience. The curcumin in turmeric contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help to block cancer cells, stimulate gallbladder and brain cells, keep blood sugar level in check, strengthen immune system against depression, heal wounds and bruises and help in maintaining a youthful look. To increase bioavailability in the body, black pepper is added to speed up metabolism rate whereas the palm sugar and tamarind are added to enhance taste. CumaMix has great commercial value as it is easy to carry, has long shelf life and the production cost is low. With its great taste, CumaMix is readily accepted by everyone including mothers undergoing the confinement period who prefer fast, clean and hassle-free concoction preparation.
