Have you ever wondered how you can reach financial freedom in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you are out of a job or desiring to leave one and feeling cooped up at home, there is a flavorful, easy way of earning from “ube”.

Let the Industrial Technology Development Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-ITDI) teach you 55 simple and cheap ways to prepare meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables. Those with excess physical energy can also try their skill in learning 14 machine-based technologies.

“Kitang-Kita Na sa Series of ITDI” is the turn of the year learning tool for you. Below is #5 on Ube (Purple Yam) Processing.

Ube Processing, earn the healthful way

The DOST-ITDI, as a mover to develop technologies and solutions that support the growth of industries, also provides for every “Juan” and “Juana” a source of livelihood that’s reasonably affordable.

These technologies are simple, adaptable, and useful in any situation, be it normal times or trying times like during disasters and the current pandemic.

One of the ways, by which one may venture into to earn something extra is Ube (Purple Yam) Processing. DOST-ITDI prepared a variety of ways to process ube into jam, powder, candy, and flakes.

These are commonly used as primary ingredients in cakes and other pastries, flans, and ice cream, among others.

But while we can indulge our sweet tooth with ube, it is also good to know that ube has a similar nutritional profile to sweet potato, which is high in healthy carbs, vitamins, and fiber.

The purple variety was found to have extra-high levels of antioxidants that can promote overall health.

Ube Processing is Series No. 5 in the “Kitang-kita Na sa Series of DOST-ITDI” and is an online reading material for those interested to earn while at home during the quarantine period. It can be accessed here.

Interested would-be entrepreneurs can request for online techno demonstration of other technologies included in the series.

For more information, write to Nelia Elisa C. Florendo, Chief Science Research Specialist, Technological Services Division, Industrial Technology Development Institute, DOST Complex, Bicutan, Taguig City 1631, Metro Manila or call telephone number (02) 8837-2071 Local 2265.
