The strawberry – a true vitamin bomb and the first sign of spring in the winter season
Upon the sight of strawberries, who doesn’t think of their seductive fragrance and the taste of spring? Everyone has surely already caught themselves picking up a small tray of bright red strawberries while doing their weekly shopping.
The strawberry is the ideal choice after the Christmas season because of its low calorie content with only 32 kcal, and because of its high vitamin C content. Thus, the strawberry, apart from its amazing flavour, can be described as a true vitamin bomb.
With 162 mg of vitamin C per 250 g of fruit, the strawberry contains more vitamin C than oranges or lemons, it is also an important supplier of iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium. The potassium stimulates kidney activity, which promotes dehydration and purification of the body. Another compelling advantage of the strawberry is its high proportion of dietary fibre, which promotes intestinal activity and thus stimulates digestion.
