34.29g

Carbohydrates are composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and are divided in 4 groups: oligosaccharides (glycose), monosaccharides and disaccharides which are sugars and serve as a quick source of energy, while polysaccharides, like starches serve for storing energy.

Minerals

1. more ash per 100g

5.47g

The ash content refers to the total amount of minerals contained (potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium).
2. more calcium per 100g

78mg

Calcium is a mineral which is very important for bone health. The recommended daily dose for adults is approximately 1000mg.
3. more iron per 100g

4.9mg

Iron is found in hemoglobin, which represents approximately 2 thirds of the body’s iron reserve.
4. more magnesium per 100g

353mg

Magnesium is an important mineral for bone development and helps the proper functioning of various metabolic processes, like activating the enzymes that help in energy production.
5. more phosphorus per 100g

644mg

Phosphorus is the second most abundant mineral found in the human body, after calcium. It helps cellular reproduction and contributes to the growth and repair of tissues.
6. more potassium per 100g

687mg

Potassium is a mineral that helps muscles contract, regulates the fluid balance in the body, helps maintain a normal blood pressure and kidney health.

Vitamins

1. more vitamin A (RAE) per 100g

3µg

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is primarily important for maintaining healthy vision. It also acts as an antioxidant and is important for the health of teeth, bones, soft tissues and skin. RAE (Retinol Activity Equivalent) is the unit of measurement the scientific community prefers.
2. more thiamin per 100g

1.16mg

Thiamin (vitamin B1) assists the body's cells change carbohydrates into energy. It is commonly found in grain-based foods like bread and cereals.
3. more riboflavin per 100g

0.41mg

Ribolflavin (vitamin B2) is one of the most important vitamins from the B complex series. It is necessary for breaking down carbohydrates and for processing amino acids and fats.
4. more niacin per 100g

2.28mg

Niacin or vitamin B3 aids the body by lowering cholesterol and triglycerides (fat). Like other vitamins from the B complex series, it also helps convert carbohydrates into glucose.
5. more pantothenic acid per 100g

4.03mg

Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) contributes to lowering cholesterol and triglycerides (fat) in the body. Like all B vitamins, it is involved in the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose. It also contributes to maintaining the health of the nervous system.
6. more vitamin B6 per 100g

1.17mg

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is needed for the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine. It's essential for absorbing vitamin B12 and takes part in the production of red blood cells, various cells of the immune system and in the formation of myelin, which protects nerve cells from damage.

Fats

1. more lipids per 100g

38.45g

Lipids are essential for a healthy, balanced diet. They provide energy and also play a key role in the production of hormones and cell membranes, as well as in the absorption of nutrients and fat-soluble vitamins.
2.saturated fatty acids per 100g

3.68g

Saturated fats are the unhealthy fatty acids that produce bad cholesterol and increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks. They come in high amounts from meat and dairy products.
3. more monounsaturated fatty acids per 100g

4.85g

A form of unsaturated fat with one double bond in its structure. Unsaturated fats are usually healthy fatty acids, increasing good cholesterol and decreasing bad cholesterol.
4. more polyunsaturated fatty acids per 100g

28.22g

A form of unsaturated fat with more than one double bond in its structure. Unsaturated fats are usually healthy fatty acids, increasing good cholesterol and decreasing bad cholesterol.

Amino acids

1. more leucine per 100g

1.15g

Leucine is an essential amino acid for adipose, muscle and liver tissues. It stimulates protein synthesis, protecting muscles from stress and is important for regulating blood sugar and stimulating insulin release, which is important for building muscles.
2. more tryptophan per 100g

0.18g

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that the body needs for growth, for creating the sleep hormone melatonin, the neurotransmitter serotonin and for the synthesis of vitamin B3.
