Numerous research studies show a strong correlation between the chronic diseases and overweight as well as the intake of foods high in saturated fat or low in dietary fiber; that is, inadequate dietary practice is the prime culprit behind the chronic diseases. Generally, aquatic products are of health potential. For example, fish have a low content of total lipids or high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (i.e. EPA and DHA). Many studies have revealed the protective effects of EPA and DHA against cardiovascular disease. Gracilaria and other seaweeds, the alkaline-forming foods, are rich in fiber and may improve high blood pressure and lipid profile.

Chinese medicated diet does have a long history. Most people are convinced of the philosophy of “food as medicine” and live up to it. Based on the potential health effects of aquatic products, it will be desirable to take them as major materials to make Chinese medicated diet products high in calcium and fiber and low in calorie. In this study. We have successfully developed a variety of Chinese medicated diets, which are low calorie, blood lipid regulation, and high calcium content products .
