Nutritional values

The hazelnuts, pistachios and almonds from the marzipan provide a high vitamin E content and they bring many unsaturated fatty acids. A truly successful combination: the more of these valuable fats you take in, the more vitamin E is needed - the fat-soluble vitamin protects the sensitive fatty acids from undesirable chemical processes.

Hazelnut allergy sufferers can replace the nuts with almonds or pine nuts if they are tolerated.
