A simple and healthy pleasure
Chestnuts were for a long time the basis of human nutrition in entire regions because they are very nutritious. In fact, the chestnut tree was called “the breadfruit tree“. The chestnut and the marron correspond to the same dry fruit, both from the chestnut tree. The chestnut has many nutritional benefits quite important, because indeed the chestnut is generally twice as caloric as a banana. It is rich in fiber good for lowering cholesterol, rich in slow carbohydrates, but also rich in vitamin A,C and E which offer antioxidant properties. To choose a chestnut, no rules too exhaustive: choose a heavy chestnut with an unbroken bark.
