Nutritional values

The fruity Easter confectionery scores points above all with its high dried fruit content: the dried fruits not only make a slow digestion go smoothly, but also contribute one fifth of the daily potassium requirement - important for the work of the heart and muscles.

The high magnesium content from cashew nuts ensures good functioning of the nervous system and muscles. Walnut kernels are a healthy alternative: the nuts contain a particularly large amount of heart-friendly omega-3 fatty acids.
