Global poultry experts will congregate in the city for the 8th Annual Poultry Exhibition, which will be held from November 26 to 28. Experts will discuss the benefits of lean chicken protein intake, ease of accessibility to this vital element in a daily Indian diet and sustained growth of the poultry industry in India.

Protein deficiency in India is a cause for concern. A recent paper published in The National Medical Journal of India highlighted the fact that India has the highest number of new tuberculosis (TB) and TB-related deaths in the world, with 2.3 million new cases and an estimated 3.2 lakh deaths annually. A recent study commissioned by DuPont and done by Economist Intelligence Unit concluded that quality of the food consumed in India is highly deficient in protein, iron and Vitamin A.

The study says that while meat consumption remains important to the human diet, milk and eggs will increasingly provide a more efficient source of calories and protein.

For Indians, protein in diet is only 37 per cent as against a world average of 65 per cent and the World Health Organisation recommendations of minimum 84 grams per day. An average Indian consumes 35-40 grams of protein per day while the protein requirement for an average person is one gm per kilogram of bodyweight per day.

Eggs are an inexpensive source of high-quality nutrients. They provide a tremendous amount of choline, which can improve your memory and cognitive response. Studies have linked dietary intake of choline with higher IQ results. Additionally, the omega-3 fatty acids and nutrients like folate, pantothenic acid and zinc are also important for your brain function.

Eating the yolk can reduce your stress level and prevent neurological disorders like depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
