Nutritional values

One serving already provides one third of the recommended daily intake of folic acid. It is one of the most important B vitamins, especially for pregnant women. This is because it protects the unborn child from defects of the nervous system and heart malformations.

If possible, use wholemeal ribbon noodles. These contain more fibre and are a real intestinal flatterer.
