Mix of oat flakes and whey protein crisps with cocoa beans, pumpkin seeds and flax seed.
Colazione is a balanced mixture of ingredients which is ideal for the first meal of the day: the breakfast. The main ingredient is gluten-free oat flakes. Oat is a cereal very rich in many different nutrients, which have many beneficial actions to the health of the organism through a synergistic action. For example, the high content of soluble fiber may benefit the intestine, as it accelerates the transit of food and promotes the proliferation of lactobacilli, "enemies" of pathogenic bacteria, thus improving the general intestinal health.
In particular, the beta-glucans present in soluble fiber have beneficial effects on lipid metabolism (by a cholesterol lowering action), on carbohydrate metabolism (by lowering the glycemic index) and on satiety. Oat flakes have also a remarkable protein content (about 12% weight/weight), higher than many other cereals. In order to increase the protein content as well as to give a crunchy note to Colazione, whey crisps (90% protein) are also added.
Cocoa powder and cocoa beans from Peru make the product tasty without enriching it with too much saturated fats and simple sugars. Colazione is completed with pumpkin seeds and flax seeds, both excellent source of essential fatty acids.
Pumpkin seeds are well known for their content in omega 3 fatty acids, the high protein content and for the presence of many mineral salts such as zinc, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus.
Finally, flax seeds contain different types of fatty acids: omega 3 (α-linolenic acid), omega 6 and omega 9, and they are also rich h in minerals and group B vitamins.
Colazione is therefore a gluten free balanced meal with high protein and "good" fat content, with reduced sugar content. It is also suitable for lactose intolerant (if taking the recommended daily dose).
