Humanitas Health recipe: Water Pancakes, many vitamins and few sugars

February 23, 2018

Together with Dr. Manuela Pastore, a clinical dietician from the Health Department at the Humanitas Clinical Institute, we prepare the recipe for water-based pancakes with maple and blueberry syrup, low calorie content and simple sugars rich in antioxidants.


Blueberries have a very low sugar content, a decent content of vitamin C and carotenoids,” the doctor points out. The blackberry also contains neomirtillin, which has antibacterial properties and is useful in the case of cystitis because it fights the colibacilli involved in the infection, and lastly anthocyanins, which give the purple color and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. Maple syrup is also very rich in vitamins and minerals, even though it is sucrose like sugar.
