Nutritional values

Exotic fruits provide many vitamins, the carambola is also rich in trace elements and minerals. The vitamins C, B12 and provitamin A, which are present in each slice at over 20 percent of the optimal daily intake, should be emphasized here. Vitamin B12 is involved in the formation of red blood cells and helps to build the nervous system.

Papaya contains an enzyme that breaks down protein and is therefore good for digestion. As it also "attacks" gelatine, this sponge roll is intended for immediate consumption and should not be left standing for any longer. So do not prepare it the day before when you are expecting guests!
