Nutritional values

Provitamin A (beta-carotene) and vitamin E are included in each serving at 30 to 40 percent of our daily requirement. Thus, the soup contributes to the protection of our cells, for example eye and skin cells when we are exposed to the sun, as well as for the smooth functioning of nerves, muscles and blood.

You can also use canola oil for the parsley oil. This oil goes particularly well with asparagus and it has a very favorable fatty acid profile.
