Polish beef is one of the most nutritious meat types in terms of its nutritive composition and content of exogenous substances - those that can not be produced by our organism.
It is characterized by high content of well absorbable protein and medium fat content. It is also a source of vitamin B12, which supports muscle oxygenation and, by taking part in the process of creating red blood cells, prevents us from anemia.
In addition, it contains vitamins B1 and B6, which are involved in the synthesis of the protein necessary for building up muscles. Good quality beef is tender, juicy and tasty.Read more
Pork meat plays a big role in Polish culinary tradition and its native breeds are highly valued in Europe. In recent years, thanks to improved quality of farming, energy value of pork decreased and, on the other hand, its nutritional value increased significantly.
Pork meat is a very good source of vitamin B1. It is also rich in complete protein, essential for body regeneration, as well as iron and other minerals.
Pork meat is tender and crispy. Its taste, smell and tenderness is influenced by the level of intramuscular fat.
It is worth buying pork from native breeds, such as "pulawska" or "zlotnicka pstra".Read more
Fruit and vegetables are a basic, valuable source of vitamins and minerals that should be the foundation of our daily diet. Rich in vitamins C, B, beta-carotene, folates and fiber, they provide substances necessary for the body. Diversity of fruits and vegetables allows consumers to eat in a balanced and varied way.
Some of the products in this group - berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries), leafy vegetables (kale, spinach), cabbage, sea buckthorn and chokeberry - are considered Polish superfoods. They contain a lot of valuable ingredients necessary for our health.
By choosing Polish seasonal fruit and vegetables you provide yourself and your family with plenty of tasty organic products that Poland is famous for.Read more
