The active campaign on the use of plants, vegetables and herbs for medicinal and health purposes must be working really nicely as even small enterprises have started incorporating healthy ingredients into their products.
The most explored vegetable these days is Malunggay (Moringa Oleifera) so I am not surprised to learn they have now started using it as nutritional enhancer to Pinoy's most popular bread - the pan de sal.
I saw them being sold at Kambal Pandesal and the ever so curious me bought a few pieces to try how it taste as my kids love pan de sal and if the taste of Malunggay Pan de Sal gets their approval, I will buy this instead of the regular one.
I am happy to prove after a few bites that the vegetable ingredient didn't alter the overall taste of the bread. My three year old son munched away one piece in a jiffy! It even taste better with butter.
Malunggay is very popular among mothers as it aids in lactation and had I known this before I gave birth to Eana, I would have consumed a hundred of this.
