About the product
Lotus root is a low-calorie, high-fiber starchy vegetable that is traditionally found in some Japanese and Chinese dishes. Besides being an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, iron, and other minerals, its most unique culinary characteristic is its ability to retain its crunchy texture even after being braised or simmered. The diced lotus root in this hamburger patty gives it an added dimension of texture and flavor.
While this patty weighs in at a meaty 120g, the addition of lotus root to the blend of ground pork and chicken makes it 25% lower in calories than the kind served at restaurants. A 100g serving of this patty contains 160 calories, 67 fewer calories than a comparable serving of a restaurant-style mini hamburger patty.
Lean chicken, besides being an excellent source of protein, is also plentiful in imidazole dipeptides, whose strong antioxidant effect is said to remove the active oxygen produced during exercise. A Japanese study showed that these compounds also fight fatigue by relieving the oxidative stress that manifests as chronic exhaustion. The effects of imidazole dipeptides are amplified in the presence of vitamin C, so it is recommended to eat foods like chicken with raw vegetables or lemon.
The mixture is seasoned very simply, so feel free to enjoy it with seasonings and sauces of your choice. In addition, visually speaking, this dish is not the most colorful, so be sure to accompany it with vibrant side dishes. Colorful ingredients contain antioxidants, so if you want to increase your free-radical-fighting power, add some color to your diet!
