Nutrition Info


Chicken is one of the best sources of vitamin B3, otherwise known as niacin. Niacin is vitally important for energy production, changing protein, fat and carbohydrate into usable energy. In particular niacin helps convert starches, stored in the liver and muscles, into energy. It also plays an antioxidant role, helping to stop damaging free radicals from doing their nasty cell-destroying deeds.

This curry also contains turmeric, which is a potent anti-inflammatory.
