The Italian country is rich in farms which produce highly nutritional food. It can be considered as a superfood, and for this reason, it has to be part of the daily diet of chic food lovers! It would be great to eat these ingredients every day and vary one's own nutritional habits.
Superfoods: A non-medical term popularized in the media to refer to foods that can have health-promoting properties such as reducing one's risk of disease or improving any aspect of physical or emotional health. So-called superfoods may have an unusually high content of antioxidants, vitamins, or other nutrients.
The good news are that at La Forketta you can eat them at their best, in balanced dishes created to make you feel good and to meet your desire for flavor.
Let’s see which are the best Italian superfoods!
Which Are The Italian Superfoods?
There are more or less 40.000 active farms in Italy.
We have to thank them for the rich Italian rural biodiversity, as well as for the high quality of our products.
The reason is simple: Italian products are extremely rich in nutrients, their quality is high and the climate conditions permit to have a great food variety in every season.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Everybody envies us for it, and for a reason! Extra virgin olive oil is one of the best products of the whole Italian agricultural production.
A precious food, super good and amazingly healthy, its nutritional properties are maintained only if consumed raw (as in most of La Forketta dishes!).
Extra virgin olive oil contains antioxidants and polyunsaturated fats, among which the amazing omega 3 and omega 6.
What’s so special about herbs?
First of all, their flavor allows us to reduce the salt in the dishes. Moreover, they have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, they contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
At La Forketta we love to use them not only to add some flavor to our dishes, but also to give a special touch to our naturally flavored waters.
You can find them in: flavored waters and herbal teas.
