Nutritional information

It may not look like it, but poppy seeds can be considered as nutrients with a high density of valuable and healthy ingredients. They have a very good fatty acid profile and contain the essential amino acids leucine and lysine. Poppy seeds are also a good source for minerals like iron, magnesium, phoshporous or calcium.

Berries are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and help to improve your immune system. They also contain a lot of dietary fibre, which is good for your digestive system.
