Students from a technological institute in the province of Huarmey, in the Peruvian region of Ancash created chocolate with fish powder to combat anemia in children.
Sublipez chocolate is made with dehydrated fish, especially cabinza and lorna, which is native to Huarmey, which is added sweet and turns into powder, according to information from El Nuevo Día.
“This input is mixed with chocolate and comes in two sizes that have a price of 50 cents of soles or 1 sol per unit”, the aforementioned media said.
Huarmey is a town on the coast of the Ancash region, north of Lima, famous for its beaches and its fishing activity that also makes this province an appetizing gastronomic destination.
In Peru, anemia affects 41.1% of children under three years of age, according to the latest report from the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics (INEI).
After passing the test with two species of fish, students will develop other versions of the Sublipez with anchovy and pejerrey, other species that abound in the sea of Peru.
