Kabuhayan Expo 2016

Various SMEs and LGUs attended the Kabuhayan Expo November 11-13, 2016 at SM Megamall Tradehall.

Ms. Sandy Sanchez Montano, the first ASEAN woman leader, gave a talk at the closing ceremony. She emphasized that during calamities the relief goods given are canned goods and noodles which are of low nutritional value. She gone to a place hit by a typhoon but surprised that the people there do not need relief goods because they produce their own food.

According to DOST, camote, cassava, malunggay and monggo are variants that are resilient or can withstand harsh weather. ORAC test results also showed that Malunggay (157,000) is more potent than Spirulina with only 61,900.

She tackled the ABC's in ASEAN Collaborate -> Audit (Money and sience and technology) -> Build ->  Tech transfer -> Collaborate

My Luyang Dilaw Tea Review

I added 4 tablespoon of the granules to half cup water (mug). The granules has sugar already. It is like tea. There is no after taste and sting. It is not spicy or hot but I can still taste the ginger.
