Did you know?

  • Manganese is a metallic element which plays a role in the body’s use of carbohydrates and lipids (fats), and prevents damage caused by free radicals.

Chef's tip

  • Parsnips can be used in place of carrots, and their sweetish flavour makes a tasty addition to potage soups and stews. Parsnips should be cooked immediately after peeling, as they darken rapidly when exposed to air.
