Let's talk about the pomegranate:


The pomegranate is a plant that contains several antioxidant vitamins (vitamin C and vitamin E). The vitamin C contained in pomegranate vinegar contributes to the normal formation of collagen to ensure the normal function of cartilage, gums and skin. (a) In particular, it contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system (b) and the immune system. (c)

Vitamin C and vitamin E help cells to combat oxidative stress (d), which is one of the causes of cell ageing. According to Sies & Jones (2007), oxidative stress is: "the imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants in favour of oxidants, leading to cellular damage such as disruption of redox signalling". (1) This oxidative stress can result from a number of lifestyle, environmental and chemical factors (smoking, pollution, sun exposure, etc.). (1)

Pomegranates also contain polyphenols, including epicatechins, flavonoids and antocyanins. (2) This fruit and its vinegar also contain vitamin B5, vitamin B9 and vitamin K. Vitamin K contributes to normal blood coagulation and the maintenance of normal bone structure. (e)

They also contain potassium and trace elements including manganese, which contributes to a normal energy metabolism. (f)

FAQ

 

Why use extra virgin olive oil?

Extra-virgin olive oil has numerous health benefits, particularly in terms of cardiovascular health. The phenolic compounds it contains play a crucial role in preventing cardiovascular disease, making it a mainstay of the Mediterranean diet. Obtained by first cold pressing the olives, this oil retains all its beneficial properties for the body. A source of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins E, D, K and provitamin A, as well as polyphenols, it has a wide range of health benefits, whether applied to the skin or taken orally. Cosmetically, it acts as an emollient, antioxidant, skin regenerator and much more. Used nutritionally, it prevents inflammation, aids digestion and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and certain cancers. As the partner of choice for a balanced diet, olive oil can be easily incorporated into many homemade recipes, offering an infinite range of flavours and benefits for our health. (3)

 

What is brown bread?

Brown bread, a clever blend of wholemeal and white flour, is an interesting alternative to white bread. With the presence of sprouts and bran, it offers a compromise between essential nutrients and the lighter texture of traditional bread. However, the healthiest choice remains wholemeal bread. Made from nutrient-rich whole grains, it is the most nutritious option. So, while white bread can provide certain nutrients, brown bread offers a healthier option, while wholemeal bread stands out as the optimal choice for a balanced, nutritious diet.

 

Where does Burrata come from?

Burrata, that Italian culinary delight, is a traditional cheese from Puglia, a region renowned for its gastronomy. Made from mozzarella, burrata is distinguished by its incredibly melting, runny texture, unlike mozzarella, which remains firmer. It is best eaten between May and August, when it is at its freshest and smoothest. To enjoy this cheese treasure to the full, all you have to do is cut it delicately and enjoy it as it is, accompanied by a drizzle of olive oil and a few fresh basil leaves. It also goes wonderfully well with bread, in salads, with fruit such as melon, fresh pasta and tomatoes, or even on a delicious pizza. Burrata offers an infinite range of possibilities for delighting your taste buds with its creamy texture and subtle flavour.


What is wild garlic?

Bear's garlic, also known as wild garlic, is an aromatic plant that grows in wooded areas of the northern hemisphere. Known for centuries for its distinctive aroma and medicinal properties, it has conquered kitchens the world over. A source of vitamins A, C and K, calcium, iron and magnesium, wild garlic is a concentrate of essential nutrients. Bear's garlic is said to have multiple health benefits, including boosting immunity thanks to its sulphur compounds, improving heart health by reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, and supporting digestion by reducing gastrointestinal inflammation.
