The inclusion of these ingredients in our packaged gazpacho allows us to offer a double benefit to consumers.

Firstly, we guarantee a recipe with all the traditional flavour of this fresh soup.

In addition, we also give those who consume it the option of enjoying a healthy diet, taking advantage, among other things, of all the nutritional contribution offered by these ingredients.

Nutritional value of gazpacho

If we look specifically at the nutritional value of Caña Nature’s fresh gazpacho, we find all these nutrients:

  • Vitamin A.
  • Vitamin C.
  • Vitamin E.
  • Antioxidants.
  • Fibre.
  • Minerals (phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, calcium).

These nutrients can be used because they are present in the ingredients that make up the recipe. We explain below how they specifically help you to take better care of your health.

The benefits of extra virgin olive oil

One of the secrets to the flavour of our gazpacho lies in the extra virgin olive oil that is present in the recipe.

The fatty acids in this oil, together with the vasodilator effect of the garlic, help to control blood pressure.

In addition, these fatty acids also offer an additional benefit as antioxidants, which serve to prevent cardiovascular disease.

Gazpacho slimming diet

Gazpacho is included in weight loss diets for several reasons, one of which is its satiating effect.

It makes it easier to reduce the amount of food in the diet. This makes it easier to cope with any slimming diet.

In addition, gazpacho is recommended to be served cold. This helps the consumer to choose it as a refreshing food, especially during the hottest periods of the year, as opposed to other less healthy options.

On the other hand, gazpacho is low in calories, thanks to ingredients such as tomato, cucumber, pepper and garlic.

Antioxidant properties of gazpacho

Fresh gazpacho has very beneficial properties for the skin and it is its concentration of antioxidants that makes this possible.

Antioxidants serve to reduce the action of free radicals and thus prevent blemishes and wrinkles as signs of ageing.

In particular, tomatoes provide lycopene, a very important antioxidant that also gives them their characteristic red colour.

Lycopene, together with vitamin C and carotene, activates melanin in the skin and gives it extra protection against the effects of sun exposure.

The benefits of the vegetables in gazpacho

92% of our gazpacho is made from fresh vegetables. This is one of the main reasons why it is such a healthy food.

In all diets it is recommended to eat two portions of vegetables, especially for the nutrients they contain.

Gazpacho has an advantage in this respect. As it is not subjected to any thermal process in its preparation, i.e. it is not cooked with heat, all the nutrients are preserved.

Moreover, when making gazpacho, no part of the food used is discarded. Therefore, if you consume it, you will take advantage of 100% of the nutrients of the vegetables that are part of the recipe.
