Nutritional values

A surprising amount of vitamin C is hidden in the low-fat canapés. This water-soluble vitamin not only protects against free radicals; it is also needed to build up collagen, a protein that strengthens bones and blood vessels, teeth and gums.

Bought grapefruit juice does\'s fine, but freshly squeezed tastes more intense and fruity. Vegetarians use agar-agar instead of gelatine.
