The intrinsic value
The Kornspitz® contains a balanced mix of high quality ingredients, such as rye and wheat flour, shredded rye, wheat and soy, wheat malt and linseeds. In addition to valuable minerals and trace elements, these ingredients also provide a high proportion of dietary fibre (7,3 % per 100 g). As indigestible components of the grain, roughage and fibre help to regulate the digestive process in the human body, and to keep the intestines free of unwanted deposits.
In addition to the health-related aspects, many nutrition-conscious consumers are also aware of the positive effects on their figures. Roughage and dietary fibre have virtually no calories, and produce a feeling of satiety. Thus one can enjoy a hearty meal without always having to watch out for calories.
In May 2005, this was scientifically confirmed by the Institute of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Vienna. Researchers found that the Kornspitz® boasts a glycaemic index of only 43, officially proving that it can be “enjoyed without remorse”. Numerous diets and nutrition programmes, such as the Kornspitz® diet, are based on this.
