At one time, there was a lion of one hundred percent of the sugar in the state, but in the study of medical science it was convinced that the oil cholesterol is high, then the state has started crushing of groundnut and cottonseed oil ketchup.
Some Gujarati families have left cottonseed and have turned back to Singeel, so the farmers of Saurashtra have increased the sowing of groundnut in place of cotton. Now to stay in the market, the new quality of groundnut is coming in the market and it is cholesterol free.
Agricultural scientists have claimed that they have developed cholesterol-free peanuts which are blessed with high blood pressure and those suffering from heart disease.
Using state-of-the-art Genom technology, researchers from Junagadh Agricultural University have developed peanuts that are harmful cholesterol-free. The new quality is developed for better quality by changing the product’s DNA with Genom technology.
Peanuts are harvested in Gujarat’s Saurashtra region. In the year 2017, record-breaking 3.2 million tonnes of peanuts alone took place in Saurashtra. Junagadh is the third agricultural university after the Mohali and Jawaharlal Nehru University in the country, which has tried to increase its quality by removing or replacing cropped DNA with the use of genom technology.
According to researchers, two types of fatty acids are found in groundnut. Oilyic Acid and Linoleic Acid, both of which are 80% of groundnut oil. Linoleic acid cholesterol increases, while Olik reduces cholesterol by acting against it.
According to the researchers, if this process is traditionally done by cross-binding, then 8 years go by preparing itself and the next 3-4 years should be done for regular process, while genome technology can be reduced from this period to two to three years and Nevertheless, the results get better.
Dr. Asif Professor of Biotechnology Department of the university who led the team of researchers. Ruksingh Rathod said, “We are trying to reduce the part of its linoleic acid by improving the DNA of groundnut. Peanut oil, like success, will become cholesterol-free like sesame oil.
