A company has made an edible chip that could soon be on sale in the UK.
The chip, called Vegetable Chips, contains the vitamin D compound, veggie, according to The Telegraph.
Vegetables can be a source of vitamin D, which is needed to support normal brain development, as well as preventing osteoporosis.
The company behind the chip, VegTech, has said it has already received orders of more than 100,000 chips, but that more than 3,000 people have expressed interest in the product.
Veggie Chips are being developed as a supplement to existing diets, with the chip being touted as a nutritional supplement for adults who are at risk of developing osteoporsis, or osteoplastosis, and for children who are vulnerable to being overweight or obese.
Vegan chip maker VegTech has been selling its chips in supermarkets and on the internet.
The chip, which uses a specially made polymer, can be cut into the shape of any vegetable.
VegTech also sells a “vegan version”, which uses animal-derived ingredients, such as soy protein.
The VegTech product has already attracted interest from the public.
One customer posted on a Vegan Chip Facebook page that he “loved the idea”, while another said “I want to buy one.”
