Nutritional values

Dates and pine nuts contain digestion-stimulating fiber. Because they contain little sugar and cholesterol, even diabetics and people with fat metabolism problems can usually tolerate dates.

The addition "tradizionale" on the label guarantees particularly high-quality balsamic vinegar. Only these vinegars are made exclusively from thickened grape must. The cheaper versions often contain caramel, sugar, and aromatic substances.
