Chinese Cuisine: The Healthy Way

Chinese ingredients have some amazing health benefits. In light of this grab the ginger and stock up on sesame seeds to create some delicious and nutritious Chinese dishes of your own.

The team at Royal China Group have revealed five of their favourite ingredients and how they can benefit your health and well-being.

Packed full of vitamins, it may surprise you to know that chillies contain more Vitamin C than oranges, which helps to boost the immune system. They are also a superb source of vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium and folic acid.

Great for digestion, ginger can help relieve stomach aches, morning sickness and nausea. It is also a natural preventative measure for heart attacks and strokes as it reduces blood clotting.

A fantastic source of protein, tofu is especially good for vegans as it doesn’t contain any animal products. It is packed full of nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc, making it a great ingredient as part of a balanced diet.

Sesame Seeds
Much like tofu, sesame seeds are an excellent source of high quality protein. They are also proven to balance blood pressure levels and lower cholesterol.

Green Tea
For those suffering from diabetes, green tea can be a fantastic accompaniment to frequent insulin shots to help regulate glucose levels in the blood. Green tea is also beneficial for your skin as its rich in antioxidants, which reduce signs of aging.

The Royal China Group consists of six of London’s most authentic and prestigious Chinese restaurants, including the luxurious and critically-acclaimed Royal China Club. Based in prime areas of London, the restaurants are centrally located on Baker Street, as well as in Bayswater, Fulham, Harrow-on-the-Hill and Canary Wharf.

The Royal China restaurants offer traditional Hong Kong Chinese dishes, while the Royal China Club provides an exclusive experience combining European ingredients within the authentic Chinese cuisine.
