# How to reduce sesame seed usage amount in baked simit without affecting simit visual appearance?

This is a three phase challenge, theoretical, proof-of-concept, and implementation. I want someone living in Turkey, or preferable living in New York, who would be needed for further projects.

Simit (Turkish bagel) is consumed throughout Mideastern and Balkan countries, and it is especially popular in Turkey. It is estimated that tens of thousand of simits are consumed every day just in Ankara, the Turkish capital. One important ingredient of simit is sesame seeds, which are sprinkled onto the surface of shaped-dough that is read to bake.

The aim of the project is to reduce the amount of sesame seed usage in simit baking without visible doing so. We don't want to introduce much visible change, which can drive away customers. You can use any skills you have, i.e. math skills to model the geometry (preferred), 3D design, graphic design, or even better if you are a baker, you can try your way to bake a tasty simit using minimum amount of sesame seed.

For modelers and math geniuses out there, here are the typical simit & sesame seed geometric parameters:

A) A simit shape is approximately a flattened toroid, with outer diameter 12 -16 cm, thickness

2.5 - 3.5 cm, height 1.5 - 2.7 cm.

B)the sesame seed coverage is 20 - 26 / square centimeters on simit surface, after baked.

C) A typical sesame seed's shape is approximately flattened ovoid, with length 2.0 -3.7 mm,

width 1.1 – 1.5 mm, and thickness 0.4 – 0.6 mm. One such seed weights about 20-80 mg.

D) The nominal price of fresh sesame seed is 5.25 USD/ Kg.

The object is twofold. 1) minimize the amount of sesame seed usage (in US dollars) on simit surface, and 2) minimize the amount of visible change after doing step 1.

Here, you need to consider only two common simit shapes that is shown in the attached picture.

1) how many simits do you eat a day?
2) which vitamin is most abundant in dried sesame seeds.
