IRON, PHOSPHORUS, ZINC AND GROUP B VITAMINS

Oats are typical grains of northern Europe. It has a high protein content and is composed of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Oats contain a good amount of soluble fibre, which are mainly made up of betaglucans: these compounds are known for their beneficial effect on the body, especially the cardiovascular system. In fact, betaglucans can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels and reduce blood sugar peaks after a meal. Oats have a high content of iron, phosphorus, zinc and group B vitamins.

HIGH IN FIBRE, IRON AND MAGNESIUM

White Tondini beans have an exceptional fibre content: 18.6 g per 100 g of product. In fact, a portion of just 70 grams of white beans represents half of the recommended daily intake of dietary fibre. As with all pulses, white beans are also rich in mineral salts. Specifically, they have a very high iron content, namely, 7.9 mg per 100 g. They are also valued for their high magnesium content.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE AND JAPANESE SEEDS

Adzuki beans are the seeds contained in the pods of a plant of the leguminous family. These seeds, which are similar to beans but smaller, are either red or green in colour and are known as “red adzuki” or “green adzuki”. With a high carbohydrate and protein content amounting to 50% and 20% respectively, adzuki beans are somewhere between a starter and a main course. They are suitable for making single dishes, consisting of pulses and cereals, such as adzuki beans and spelt, for a complete and balanced meal.

RICH IN POTASSIUM, PHOSPHORUS AND MAGNESIUM

Peas are a low-glycaemic index food due to their high fibre content, which means that they can reduce glycaemic peaks after a meal. Oligosaccharides, small components of soluble fibre, nourish the intestinal microflora. In addition to valuable micronutrients such as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, they also offer the typical benefits of pulses, rich in proteins and complex carbohydrates.

FIBRE, VITAMINS AND MINERALS

Dried chickpeas are an excellent source of carbohydrates, fibre and protein, together making up about 80% of their weight. They are cholesterol-free and are a good source of vitamins and minerals. The excellent fibre content of chickpeas, and of pulses in general, gives a feeling of satiety more quickly during a meal, so that we then feel full for longer due to longer digestion and bowel transit times.
