There are almost no vitamins in Thüringer Schulessen

Accordingly, the proportion of vitamins in food is already declining as soon as the food leaves the kitchen of the service provider, as announced by the Thuringian Consumer Center's office networking school.

"Different causes are possible because of the low vitamin content," said Alexandra Lienig, head of the online office. For example, vitamins can be lost while storing and cooking large quantities of food. Frozen foods or preserves also contain less vitamins than fresh produce. A sample of eleven caterers and food samples in 14 schools served at lunchtime was tested for investigation.

Fresh fruits and salad more importantly

From a networking point of view, the results require compensation for the loss of vitamins in food. For example, imagine salad or fruit counters in canteens and canteens. "In principle, it should be possible for vegetables and noodles to be prepared on site," Lienig said. Thus, vitamins could be better preserved in food. The task of state policy was to create the technical conditions for this in schools.

The Networking Office pointed out, for example: In a sample of potatoes with green beans and Kassler, vitamin C was not detected immediately after preparation. It could be about 65 milligrams of the vitamin stuck in one serving of food to cover the daily needs of elementary school students. The results of the study were presented at a networking office conference, where teachers, school operators and food service providers spoke, among others.
