We also like to collect health points. Functional Food (pronounced: fanktschenäl fuud) promises us a lot of it. From a scientific point of view, however, enrichment of nutrients in food is by no means undisputed. Nevertheless we can collect health points

- with products that are naturally rich in valuable nutrients such as cereals and potatoes. For example, with bread baked from high-quality organic cereals and "enriched" with organic potatoes, the potato is experiencing a renaissance.

It was once a poor people's meal that protected the population from famine. Potato consumption then fell drastically, because "times were getting better". In the meantime, they are being recalled. Hardly any other food brings such a balanced combination of nutrients to the plate as the potato. Easily digestible starch, high-quality protein, many minerals and vitamins determine its value.

Potato bread combines the power of the earth's tubers with the energy of the seeds that have grown in the wind. In addition, there is living fresh spring water, the salt of the seas and the driving force of sourdough or yeast. The art of bakers is to find a balance between everything - and to continue experimenting with additives such as onions or nuts. Thus they create "new breads" with natural functionals, taken directly "from the garden of nature".

Cake dough can also be stretched with boiled and crushed potatoes. Recipes can be found mainly in traditional cookbooks.

Potato pancakes and potato dumplings are often prepared with raw, grated potatoes. To obtain particularly dry potato dough, we recommend "rubbing" in an electric juice press.
