Alce Nero, the leading organic brand in Italy, offers an exciting range of pastas, pasta sauces, honey, olive oil and fruit jams for the eco-conscious and health conscious connoisseur of food this fasting month, and the festive season to follow.
Ramadan is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims. For families and friends, it is a time of fellowship.
Make this Ramadan and the Adil Fitri to follow a healthier one for your loved ones with quick and healthy organic recipes from Alce Nero.
All Alce Nero products are 100% organic, certified by European Union law including the crop, the land on which it was grown, the factory in which it was processed, as well as the procedures and ingredients used for all produce are organic certified. So you can rest assured that you are giving your loved ones the healthier option.
The brand has developed a selection of four savoury and sweet recipes that use its certified organic products in delightful ways that are simple to prepare yet amazingly tasty.
Pad Thai, one of the national dishes of Thailand is popular in Malaysia and is the inspiration for the Alce Nero Pad Thai. Instead of the traditional dried rice noodle, this healthier spin on classic Thai street food uses Alce Nero spaghetti that has a lower glycemic index and higher protein content.
Foods with lower glycemic index (GI) are a useful addition to the fasting month diet as slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance.
For an even healthier spin, use Alce Nero extra virgin olive oil instead of regular vegetable oil for this stir-fried dish. Extra virgin olive oil has a higher content of vitamins and anti-oxidants, which are known for their heart health benefits .
For a healthy, organic breakfast that is also an on-the-go snack make your own Honey Granola. This crunchy treat that is rich in fiber and protein is simple to make – combine the ingredients and bake, cool, and store in an airtight container. The honey-coated granola is a great source of energy that provides sustained energy release throughout the day.
Adding a lovely floral bouquet and herby flavor is the Alce Nero Acacia honey that has natural anti-bacterial qualities. This pure and natural honey is not heat-treated, thus retaining its health-giving nutrients.
A cool, refreshing and healthful way to slake your thirst and replenish energy lost during fasting is the Alce Nero Acacia Honey Drink. Honey and lemons are a perfect combination, and no other sweeteners are required.
Ramadan and Hari Raya feast will not be complete without dessert. For a healthier twist to sweet treats try the Peach Mousse Dessert which gets its subtle sweetness from Alce Nero Organic Peach Jam. Alce Nero fruits jams are made from a high content of superior quality organic fruits – 270g of fruits to make 270g of finished fruit jams. They contain no added sugar and no added pectin, ensuring a truly natural flavor.
