Nutritional values

Milk and many dairy products provide plenty of calcium: the mineral is essential for the growth and strength of bones and teeth. Calcium also controls the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain and muscle contraction.

The strudel with homemade plum jam tastes especially delicious, and you can determine the amount of sugar yourself. The riper the plums are, the less sugar is needed.
