NUTRITION INFO [per Serving]
Calories
513KCal
25%
It provides 513KCal equal to about 25% of DV

A calorie is a unit of energy. The number of calories foods contain tells us how much potential energy they posses.
The human body needs calories (energy) to survive, without energy our cells would die, our hearts and lungs would stop, and we would perish. We acquire this energy from food and drink.

Protein
19g
25%
It provides 19g equal to about 25% of DV

Most all the parts of our bodies are made from protein: hair, skin, blood, organs, and muscles. It is needed for cells to grow. It also repairs or replaces healthy cells and tissues. Protein in food gives us calories - 4 calories in one gram. If we do not get enough calories from fat and carbohydrates we may use protein for energy.

Water
45g
4%
It provides 45g equal to about 4% of DV

Water serves as a solvent for nutrients and delivers nutrients to cells, while it also helps the body eliminate waste products from the cells. Both the spaces between cells (intercellular spaces) and the spaces inside cells (intracellular spaces) are filled with water. Water lubricates joints and acts as shock absorbers inside the eyes and spinal cord. Amniotic fluid, which is largely water, protects the fetus from bumps and knocks.

Calcium
241mg
24%
It provides 241mg equal to about 24% of DV

Calcium is a mineral that is important for building strong bones and teeth. Almost all of the calcium we use in our bodies is for building strong bones. A very small amount is needed to help our heart, nerves and muscles work.

Carbohydrate
87g
29%
It provides 87g equal to about 29% of DV

Carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. There are three different kinds of carbohydrates. They include starch, sugar, and fiber. Starch is made from chains of small sugars. When these chains are broken down during digestion, we get energy. We get 4 calories from each gram of starch (or sugar).

Fiber
2g
6%
It provides 2g equal to about 6% of DV

Fiber is one kind of carbohydrate. It's the part of plant foods that our bodies do not break down during digestion. Because fiber isn't digested, it doesn't give us calories.
Fiber is important for keeping the digestive tract working smoothly. Since we do not digest it, the fiber in food passes into the intestine and absorbs water. The undigested fiber creates "bulk" so the muscles in the intestine can push waste out of the body.

Iron
2mg
12%
It provides 2mg equal to about 12% of DV

Iron is a mineral that is an important part of our red blood cells. It is needed to carry oxygen from our lungs to our cells, muscles and organs.

Magnesium
51mg
12%
It provides 51mg equal to about 12% of DV

Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body. It's required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione.

Sugars
2g
2%
It provides 2g equal to about 2% of DV

Sugars are carbohydrates that provide the body with energy, our body’s fuel. Sugars occur naturally in fruit, vegetables and dairy foods and are added to foods for flavour, texture and colour.

Salt
414mg
17%
It provides 414mg equal to about 17% of DV

Sodium is important for keeping a balance in pressure between the inside and outside of our cells. Too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure. High blood pressure may increase the risk for having a heart attack or stroke.

Phosphorus
310mg
31%
It provides 310mg equal to about 31% of DV

Phosphorus is a mineral that makes up 1% of a person's total body weight.
The main function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth. It plays an important role in how the body uses carbohydrates and fats. It is also needed for the body to make protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues.

Potassium
197mg
5%
It provides 197mg equal to about 5% of DV

Potassium is a mineral found in varying amounts in almost all foods. Diets high in potassium are associated with improved blood pressure control.

Fat
9g
9%
It provides 9g equal to about 9% of DV

Fat is a nutrient that is an important source of calories. One gram of fat supplies 9 calories - more than twice the amount we get from carbohydrates or protein. Fat also is needed to carry and store essential fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamins A and D.

Saturated Fat
4g
20%
It provides 4g equal to about 20% of DV

This is a type of fat that comes mainly from animal sources of food, such as red meat, poultry and full-fat dairy products. Saturated fat raises total blood cholesterol levels and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels.

Zinc
2mg
15%
It provides 2mg equal to about 15% of DV

Zinc is a mineral that your body needs to be healthy. Zinc strengthens your immune system and helps in normal growth and development at all ages.

Vitamin C
5mg
7%
It provides 5mg equal to about 7% of DV

Vitamin C helps form a cement-like material between our cells. We need vitamin C to heal cuts, wounds, and burns. When we don't get enough vitamin C the "cement" between cells loses its strength and can cause us to bleed easily. It may show up as bleeding gums or bruises.

Thiamin
275µg
18%
It provides 275µg equal to about 18% of DV

Thiamin is one of a group of vitamins called the "B vitamins." Another name for thiamin is vitamin B1. Thiamin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy it gets from food.

Riboflavin
321µg
18%
It provides 321µg equal to about 18% of DV

Riboflavin is one of a group of vitamins called "B vitamins." Another name for riboflavin is vitamin B2. Riboflavin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy you get from food. It also helps the body to use protein in food to build new cells and tissues.

Niacin
3mg
14%
It provides 3mg equal to about 14% of DV

Niacin is one of a group of vitamins called the "B vitamins." Niacin works with other B vitamins to help your body use the energy you get from food. It is also important to help use protein from the diet to build new cells and tissues.

Vitamin B6

10%
It provides 215µg equal to about 10% of DV

Vitamin B6 is also called pyridoxine. It is involved in the process of making serotonin and norepinephrine, which are chemicals that transmit signals in the brain. Vitamin B6 is also involved in the formation of myelin, a protein layer that forms around nerve cells.

Folate
58µg
14%
It provides 58µg equal to about 14% of DV

Folic acid is important for making blood and building cells. It is also called folate or folacin. Folic acid is found in many food groups in the Food Guide Pyramid.

Fatty acids Polyunsaturated
1g
8%
It provides 1g equal to about 8% of DV

This is a type of fat found mostly in plant-based foods and oils. Evidence shows that eating foods rich in polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) improves blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease.

Trans fats
10mg
0%
It provides 10mg equal to about 0% of DV

Instructions

Cook the rice and then drain al dente. Arrange on a plate and mix it with Parmesan and saffron soaked and 1 egg. The compound should be workable, for which check the consistency.

Leave to cool, take the rice and make it a layer on the palm of a hand. Obtained a groove where you fill the smoked cheese and peas which have previously cooked and made fry in a pan, mix well with the sauce.

Cover the filling then using the remaining rice, creating the shape of the orange. Each kumquat is then passed into the flour, then in beaten egg and finally in breadcrumbs.

The kumquat is then ready to be fried. In this step you should pay attention that the envelope does not open, so you have to try to give a proper consistency to the layer of breading.
