The nutrition of sweet-scented osmanthus cake

Although there are many types of sweet-scented osmanthus cake, its core ingredients are sweet-scented osmanthus, glutinous rice flour, sugar, etc. Although it is very delicious and sweet, its nutritional components are relatively simple. Glutinous rice flour contains more starch, and it tastes softer and sweeter. I added a small amount of brown sugar for decoration when making it, and brown sugar also provides more nutrition.

The sweet-scented osmanthus cake contains more sweet-scented osmanthus, and the aromatic substances it releases have the effect of moistening the lungs and relieving cough, and it can promote blood circulation and intestinal peristalsis, which is beneficial to the body’s detoxification, so its nutrition is still very rich.

Can pregnant women eat osmanthus cake?

The main ingredients of sweet-scented osmanthus cake are sweet-scented osmanthus and glutinous rice flour. Pregnant women can eat sweet-scented osmanthus cake, but don’t eat too much. Because sweet-scented osmanthus cake is high in calories, but not high in protein, pregnant women need more nutrients, and it is better to eat more beef, milk, eggs and other foods. Both osmanthus cakes and osmanthus tea contain a lot of osmanthus. I don’t recommend pregnant women to eat a lot of osmanthus cakes. You can eat 1-2 osmanthus cakes a week, and don’t eat too much.
