Benefits of the ashure
– Ashure does not contain cholesterol because it only consists of vegetable oils. Apart from the B2, B1 and C1 vitamins, it contains large quantities of iron, zinc, phosphorous, and calcium and that is why it’s recommendable for fighting colds in the winter period,. The Ashure is a very healthy meal and a big energy source, especially for children.
