Nutritional advice

Institutul National de Sanatate Publica – Romanian National Institute of Public Health

Tiger prawns are high in protein and nutrients, low in calories, and rich in iodine. The courgette noodles will absorb all the flavours for a tasty dish without the carbohydrates found in traditional pasta. The vegetable oil that is used contains unsaturated fats that do not contain cholesterol; the garlic and pimento add vitamins, valuable antioxidants and phytonutrients – all positive things!
