Roasted chestnuts

Posted on 1 min read

Yummy roasted chestnuts! Almost everyone loves this healthy and comforting snack on cold autumn days. But you have to have the patience to peel them – although this could be considered part of their charm!

Chestnuts are an interesting fruit in more ways than one. Rich in fibre and starch, they provide a good supply of carbohydrates. The energy is released gradually into the body, which makes it possible to sustain a prolonged effort, with positive effects on satiety and digestion.

But that’s not all! Chestnuts contain numerous minerals and trace elements that are important for health – particularly for sportsmen and women – with potassium, magnesium, calcium and manganese.

Finally, chestnuts are very low in fat compared to other “nuts”.
