Nutritional values

One of the turrets covers 40 percent of the daily iodine requirement. The trace element is essential for the formation of thyroid hormones, which regulate the metabolism. They also stimulate heat production and ensure a constant body temperature.

Spinach should only be washed very briefly and directly before preparation. Do not leave the vegetables in standing water for longer than necessary, otherwise the valuable vitamins will be lost.
