Paella provides a Mediterranean taste experience. Garlic, saffron and olive oil give the dish its typical Mediterranean flavour. The latter is not only known to be good for the heart and blood vessels - the oleocanthal from the olive oil can also reduce inflammation. You can even taste the polyphenol; it causes the typical scratching in your throat when you taste a high-quality olive oil.

What is paella ice cream? Paella rice is characterized by its evenly shaped grains, which have an ideal smoothness and are therefore able to absorb the brew perfectly during preparation, while remaining pleasantly firm to the bite. The starch released during cooking makes the texture particularly creamy and intensifies the flavour of this traditional Spanish dish.
