Melinjo (Gnetum gnemon Linn.) Is a species of plant seed in the open (Gymnospermae) in the form of trees originating from tropical Asia, Melanesia, and the Western Pacific, Melinjo widely planted in the garden as a shade or limiting the yard and mainly used the "fruit" and "leaf"
Research has been done on melinjo showed that the antioxidant compounds produced melinjo.This antioxidant activity obtained from the high protein concentration, 9-10 per cent in each seed melinjo. The main protein size of 30 kilo Dalton was a very effective way to eliminate free radicals that cause various diseases.
In Japan conducted research and reported that melinjo including the evolution of ancient plants close to the plant Ginkgo biloba in Japan. Ginkgo is the oldest living tree species, which has grown over 150-200 million years and is trusted as a brain tonic for strengthening the memory. Ginkgo leaves also have a powerful antioxidant and plays an important role in the oxidation of free radicals cause premature aging and dementia.
Until recently, biochemistry doctorate from Osaka Prefecture University, Japan have isolated two types of proteins that show high antioxidant activity. From all parts of the plant melinjo diekstraknya ever, ranging from leaves, bark, roots, until the grains found in most potent protein is from seed. Research indicates the antioxidant activity of phenolic content was equivalent to the synthetic antioxidant BHT (Butylated Hydroxytolune).
In addition melinjo also a natural antimicrobial. That means melinjo protein can also be used as a natural food preservative as well as new drugs for diseases caused by bacteria. Gg-AMP peptides isolated from the seeds of a potential active melinjo indicated inhibit some types of gram positive and negative bacteria
The process of processing the fruit into crackers melinjau through several phases, the first time in melinjau fruit peel outer skin to stay hard-skinned seeds, after which the seeds with a hard leather melinjau in gongseng with sand until hot, after hot melinjau gongsengan directly lifted from the outer skin peeled so the contents stay inside a cream-colored, in such hot conditions, fill in the mashed melinjau had repeatedly until the shape crackers. After the crackers in the sun on the sun so dry and ready for the consumption of fried and sprinkled with earlier in a little salt.
Melinjau chips are very tasty and suitable for an additional side dish at meals as well as 100% does not contain preservatives.
