Today, food is no longer considered just a source of carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. An increasingly greater focus is being put on fruits and vegetables since they contain important nutritional substances such as polyphenols, flavonoids, anthocyanins, sulfur compounds, etc... Simply put, oftentimes these include the substances that contribute to the colour, taste and smell of our food. We are now aware that the protective function and general health benefits associated with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables depend heavily on these particular natural compounds.
This is why Aboca and Aidap collaborated to create an innovative recipe book characterized by low-calorie recipes that also provide incredible health benefits, thanks to the presence of vegetables, legumes and fruit.
AIDAP (Italian Association of Food Related Disorders) is a scientific medical association recognized by the FISM (Italian Federation of Medical-Scientific Societies). The scope of the organisation is to promote a special awareness and culture in the prevention, education, treatment and research of food-related disorders and obesity. AIDAP is an accredited partner of the Ministry of Public Education for the promotion of the national programme for the prevention of physical, mental and social difficulties in schools.
