Nutritional values

Blackberries impress with their high anthocyanin content. These water-soluble secondary plant compounds act as effective protection against cell-damaging oxygen compounds (free radicals). Together with the wholemeal flour, the red-blue fruits also provide digestive fibres.

Organic limes are much rarer on offer than organic lemons. If you don't get any or don't like the bitter taste of the lime, simply use an untreated lemon. Fun Fact: Both citrus fruits stimulate fat burning through their acidity.
