Why Knorrox Cubes are a Good Source of Iron

They say that dynamite comes in small packages. The same can be said about our Knorrox stock cubes. While they may be small in size, it definitely packs a powerful punch and adds amazing flavour to any dish. For the past 50 years, Knorrox has been bringing a rich, meaty taste of nyama to family households all over South Africa. It’s no urban legend that when you smell and taste a meal flavoured with Knorrox, it brings you back home to your Gogo’s cooking.

Apart from providing meals with a rich, meaty flavour; Knorrox stock cubes can also benefit your well-being. Our cubes of goodness have been re-developed to have less salt while still giving you a meatier taste! Our cubes are a great source of iron. Iron is responsible for carrying oxygen from your lungs to your body. Not getting enough iron in your body can cause anaemia, which can lead to fatigue, weakness, and other health problems. Iron deficiency is very common in women and those who have a low-iron diet.

Why are Knorrox Cubes a Great Source of Iron?

Knorrox cubes are a great source of iron because they are packed with herbs and spices that make iron easier to digest. We all know that meat, eggs, and dark green, leafy vegetables are good sources of iron. When you cook with Knorrox, not only are you adding a great taste, but you’re also increasing iron absorption without even knowing it. The stock cubes are made with natural ingredients and have been proven to increase iron bioavailability. It’s never been easier to get more iron in your diet!

Why is Iron an Important Nutrient?

Iron is such an important mineral that many people take for granted. If you’ve ever found yourself to be extremely tired or lack any sort of energy to complete basic tasks, you could have anaemia. Now, iron is important because it transport oxygen around our body. We need energy to move and live, if we’re iron deficient, simple tasks could leave you out of breath and feeling faint.

It’s usually nothing serious, but your doctor should be able to guide you on how to increase your iron intake. Here are some reasons why iron is such an important mineral for your body:

  • It provides your body with more energy, reducing the feeling of tiredness and fatigue.
  • It promotes healthy red blood cell formation that pumps blood throughout your body.
  • Your performance, both mentally and physically, dramatically increases.

Do Stock Cubes Lose Their Taste with a Better Nutritional Value?

One thing about Knorrox stock cubes is that they don’t lose their taste or flavour. One tiny cube packs a serious punch of flavour and unforgettable taste to any meal. We know that a diet low in salt has numerous benefits for the body; such as lower blood pressure and a decreased risk of a heart attack. That’s why we have dramatically reduced the salt content in our beloved stock cubes. We want our loyal Knorrox cooks to be able to enjoy a hearty, meaty meal without compromising on your health and wellbeing.

Just because our stock cubes have less salt, doesn’t mean the infamous nyama taste is lost; it’s quite the opposite! Less salt content equals better nutritional value for your and your family.
