The meal, which is designed for long haul flights, consists of salmon terrine, chicken casserole with lentils and vegetables, a mixed salad with olive oil dressing and a multi-grain roll. Passengers have their choice of water or juice as a beverage and the meal comes with a dessert that's a yogurt-based blancmange with walnuts and a sugar-free caramel sauce.
The idea came about when Leatherback Food Research's CEO Paul Berryman challenged his employees to make a meal that included all 222 health claims recently finalized by the European Food Safety Authority.
"I thought of the airline meal concept when flying back from Vitafoods in Geneva. I had spent three days talking about health claims and at a round table event I suggested that Leatherhead could make a product with all 222 claims, no problem! It wasn’t that simple, but we did it within one week!" Berryman said in a statement.
