Odorful memory related to our childhood, the gingerbread is not quite a delicacy like the others ... we take stock of this sweetness rich in protein and energy.

Gingerbread: dietetic side

  • Made from rye flour, gingerbread is richer in protein (11 g per 100 g), calcium (54 mg per 100 g) and B vitamins than wheat flour pastries white.
  • Despite its low lipid content, it still remains very energetic (330 calories per 100 g, largely due to the honey that composes it).
  • Although it is not ideal as part of a dieting, this wealth proves on the other hand a good asset to recharge the batteries of a tired child. So you have the best reasons to give it to breakfast or afternoon tea to cut the afternoon ... without making a reward, only a nice source of energy!

Gingerbread: use

  • Gingerbread is full of good ideas to renew the pleasure of tasting it. It is spread with butter (salty, pre-made), apricot jam or melted chocolate. It can also accompany a scoop of vanilla ice cream, be used crumbled to replace the classic cereals in a muesli or even serve as a thickener in a compote.
  • If the sweet-salty mixes make you salivate with pleasure, you can incorporate it to small Swiss and "melt" this preparation around a poultry to give it softness or round the cooking juice of a simple roast of pork.
