Nutritional values

With one serving you already cover more than the daily requirement of vitamin B12, niacin and zinc. Vitamin B12 is needed for the formation of red blood cells. Niacin supports heart and nervous system. Zinc helps in the defence against infections. In addition, red meat provides a lot of iron for oxygen transport.

Ostrich or deer meat is also suitable for this preparation. It is lean and low in cholesterol and also has a favourable fatty acid profile.
