HEALTH BENEFITS

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Martorana fruit: made with almonds, rich in mineral salts.  They are the queens of dried fruit, bringing numerous benefits to the body as well as delighting the palate. Almonds prevent cardiovascular diseases, and are good for the heart thanks to the presence of polyunsaturated fats, substances capable of lowering the levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides in blood.
    They improve skin health, thanks to the presence of vitamin E, a fundamental antioxidant, and help to counteract the activity of free radicals, slowing down the cellular aging processes, also strengthening the immune defenses. They have an energizing and laxative action and, combined with the different vitamins and mineral salts present in them, they make the product particularly suitable for all those cases where it is necessary to provide more energy to the body: study stress, convalescence, sport, lack of concentration, pregnancy, menopause. The presence of fibers, on the other hand, facilitates intestinal motility and helps prevent constipation.
    Almonds strengthen teeth, bones and fight anemia. The calcium contained in them makes them an ideal food for those suffering from osteoporosis.
  • Caltanissetta nougat: in addition to the benefits of the almonds, it contains honey, rich in nutritional components with antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, decongestant effects and a concentrate of polyphenols and essential oils that, combined with the well-known emollient effect of the food, make honey a good  treatment for pharyngitis.

About this region

This region is located in the center of the Mediterranean sea and is also its largest island. Sicily is surrounded by the west of the Ionian Sea, the north of the Strait of Sicily and the south of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Palermo is its capital and one of the oldest Italian cities. History and tradition, art and culture, sea and mountains, those are the gems of Sicily.

So Sicily is as rich as its own history. Looking at the past allows us to understand the vibrant culinary tradition that is a result of the union of different cultures all over the time. Due to this, discovering Sicilian flavours is definitely an incredible trip around the whole world.

Culinary traditions move from the spicy taste of arabic dishes to countless recipes using tomatoes of the Spanish period to the best ingredientes of the Mediterranean diet. Sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, hard wheat bread and pasta are combined with blue fish and seasonal vegetables in a typical dish accompanied with local wine. Ricotta and cheese are inevitable products in Sicilian cooking and they can be found even in desserts enriched with dried and glazed fruit as a kind of art baking. Buon appetito in Sicily!
