Black Gemma

Black Gemma was also present at Funny Veg’s events and cooking shows. The product is the brainchild of Pietro Rondolino of the Acquerello rice family. The idea is to extract from black rice, which is even richer in nutritional value than white rice, the bud, the embryo of the grain from which the sprouts develop and in which you find the most useful and important components for the new plant: vitamins, fats, mineral salts and fibers. Black is a natural source of fiber rich in zinc and anthocyanins, ideal for flavoring the days. It can be enjoyed alone, on yogurt or in salads.

In fact, jams are made with 60% fruit and only 9 calories per serving.

For Zuegg the participation in the Rimini Wellness exhibition was an opportunity to make culture about the importance of having a conscious and balanced lifestyle and share products that are in line with the assumptions of a life with conscious and balanced nutrition, involving those who wish to embrace a healthy and balanced diet, without sacrificing taste.
