IS IT HEALTHY FOOD?

APRICOT JAM

  • Apricots are rich in many plant antioxidants. Some of these are the vitamin antioxidants so familiar to regular users of this site. Others are more difficult to obtain from other foods, and may be responsible for specific health benefits. Overall, consider the apricot to be a great food that provides you with the protective effects of antioxidants while adding very few calories to your daily total.
  • Apricots are a good source of dietary fiber. This overall fiber content should be helpful for most people in supporting digestive health. Within the total dietary fiber provided by apricots, about half consists of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is one type of fiber that can help to control blood cholesterol levels.


  • Fructose: Consuming fructosa reduces the increase in of glucose in blood.

OUR RECOMMENDATION

WE RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCTS BECAUSE...

Both are healthy and full foods to eat for breakfast or snack:


  • In the case of the jam: It bring us a great energy source when we eat it with toasts, it hasn't got any simple sugars, but it has a lot of carbohydrates and fructose and it also has a great amount of fiber. It's highly recommended for diabetic people(because it doesn't have simple sugars)...
  • In another case, this type of cereals: It also bring us a great energy source to start the day, it has a lot of carbohydrates, vitamins and iron, not much fats and great amount of proteins and fiber. This food is recommended for all people but with moderation at the time of eating it...
