The nutritional value of artichokes
From a nutritional point of view, artichokes are mostly water (this makes it an ideal food for the hot seasons, because it hydrates you without you realizing it) and carbohydrates (especially fiber and inulin).
As for minerals, it contains mainly phosphorus and potassium. In fact, a portion of artichokes (300 grams) contains 20% of the recommended daily intake of phosphorus, an essential mineral for maintaining healthy teeth and bones.
In addition, it is a vegetable highly recommended for diets because it does not contain many calories: 44 kcal per 100 g.
The nutritional value of rice
The other main ingredient in this recipe is rice, a starchy cereal. Depending on the amylose and amylopectin (the components of starch), the rice may be more or less viscous. In terms of its nutritional intake, it is a source of vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B6.
We recommend that you opt for whole rice, because it retains the fibers, minerals and vitamins that the process of refining and bleaching rice eliminates. Below, discover our easy artichoke recipe stuffed with rice! Have fun!
