Nutritional values

The pithy spread impresses with a particularly high content of satiating and intestinal-healthy dietary fibres. And it exudes a pizza-spicy aroma due to the aromatic combination of tomatoes, garlic, olives and basil. Especially in the Mediterranean countries, basil is considered a herb against flatulence, bloating and loss of appetite.

Basil in the plant pot is practical, but in terms of aroma it is only an emergency solution compared to the open field bunches. If you do not use the whole bunch, you can freeze the leftovers finely chopped without any problems.
