The project was carried out by students of the Interdisciplinary Center of Health Sciences (CICS) of the IPN, and another of its advantages is that it helps to eliminate bad breath by 100 percent.

The creators say that a 125 milliliter serving of this ice cream provides 136.4 kilocalories, 4.2 grams of protein, 1.2 grams of lipids, 20.9 grams of carbohydrates, vitamins A, C, B1, B9, B12, D and E, in addition to minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, zinc and calcium.

According to the IPN, the consumption of this dessert is recommended specially for people between 30 and 40 years of age, and also for those who have kidney problems, since hibiscus flower is a natural diuretic.

Although the ice cream has not yet been marketed, students will continue testing it, hoping that in the near future it will be a product that can be consumed by all.
