Italian focaccia – wheat tortilla (part 2)

The options for fillings of focaccia are so great that you can make your favorite cake, focusing only on your mood and desire. To obtain a fragrant version of the product, spicy herbs are used: rosemary, sage, basil, oregano. They sprinkle the surface of the dough, after lubricating with olive oil. Seasonally, focaccia is decorated with tomatoes before baking. As a rule, Cherry fruits are cut in half for this. In yeast form, chopped onions or garlic are often put in the dough. Although some prefer to see these spicy vegetables on the surface of the bread. At the same time, onions are placed on it before baking, and garlic – after (as well as fresh herbs). Unlike the classic focaccia, the yeast-free option practically requires a filling. In addition to the cheese mentioned for these purposes, take: Slices of sausage, bacon, minced meat; Potatoes and other vegetables or vegetable mixtures (usually ready-made); Sweet versions include raisins, nuts, jams and slices of fresh fruit. Today, focaccia with pesto sauce is very popular. It is prepared in two ways: Smear with a sauce a yeast cake before baking; On thin dough (with or without yeast) lay slices of boiled potatoes, which are then covered with pesto. A second layer of dough is placed on top of the resulting “pyramid”, pressing the edges tightly. Honestly, the decoration and stuffing of Italian bread has no specific restrictions. Use your wild fantasy to the maximum and enjoy the result. Calorie Content Like most white types of bread, Italian focaccia is taken hostile by nutritionists around the world. With a sufficiently high calorie content (249 kcal per 100 g), it practically does not have nutritional value. Energy balance 100 g of the product consists of: Proteins – 8.8 g; Fats – 7.9 g; Carbohydrates – 36 g. A large amount of carbohydrates in the composition of the cake automatically transfers it to the ranks of products that should be used with caution in people with type 2 diabetes and obesity. Mineral salt is slightly present in bread. Nevertheless, patients with arterial hypertension should adjust their diet taking into account the use of focaccia in order to avoid surges in blood pressure. The presence of gluten indicates that the product should be completely excluded from the diet of people with celiac disease. A nice plus of flat cakes is vitamin E in an amount of 2.22 mg per 100 g. This represents approximately 20-30% of the daily needs of an adult. Tocopherol is a powerful antioxidant. He participates in the work of the reproductive system, prevents the formation of blood clots, and is also responsible for the healthy appearance of the skin. To summarize, we recall that everything is good in moderation. By limiting the portion of focaccia to 50-70 g, you will not only not harm your body, but also get easy pleasure. Softly and gently, in a delicious way, we came to the end of the article. Live sweetly, love honestly, bake festively and remember: “Without pancake, it’s not Pancake Week, without focaccia, it’s not Italy!”
