Background of the Study
In (2004), USDA scientists investigated over 100 foods to measure their antioxidant concentration per serving size. Jam sandwiches are thought to have originated at around the 19th century in the United Kingdom. Two apples - Red Delicious and Granny Smith - ranked 12th and 13th respectively. Antioxidants are disease-fighting compounds. Scientists believe these compounds help prevent and repair oxidation damage that happens during normal cell activity. In Scotland they are known as pieces and jam or jelly pieces. The jam sandwich was an affordable food which was a major part of the diets of the lower/working-class people of cities such as London and Glasgow. One plausible reason for this was that the ingredients that the jam sandwiches were made from cost little to manufacture and due to taxes being lifted on sugar in 1880, it became widely available as a cheap foodstuff. Today, jam sandwiches are mainly consumed by children. Shops do not often sell individual jam sandwiches.
In the Philippines (2007) Andy Albao Enterprise, was engage in manufacturing jam product wherein they segmented and positioned their product in an ideal way. Jam product has been sold in the Philippines for breakfast and snack time of the Filipino citizen.
