Just about all types of cuisines include their own versions of meatballs. However, many of you probably think of them Italian style, lathered up with rich tomato sauce on top of spaghetti. Meatballs are known for their nutritional benefits although they also have some deficits.
Despite being often high in sodium and fat, Cindy Ell states that meatballs can also provide protein, vitamins, and minerals, making it essential to enjoy them in moderation.
Meatballs often contain high beef portion, and beef is well-known for being a good source of high quality form of protein rich in all essential amino acids.
Researchers claim that protein helps regulate body composition, boost bone health, assist with cell signaling, and contribute to healthy function of the gastrointestinal system.
Beef used in meatballs is also a great source of several micro nutrients, namely B12, iron, and zinc. Zinc deficiencies are common among majority of today’s population. Zinc is one potent type of antioxidant that plays a role in DNA replication and repair. On the other hand, vitamin B12 can help in protecting your body against cardiovascular diseases.
Deficiencies in vitamin B12 are also very common. Iron is important for oxygen storage and transport. Vegetarians, pregnant women, adolescents, children, and infants are some of the groups prone to iron deficiencies.
