Chicken broth, properties and benefits – Italian Cuisine

Chicken broth, properties and benefits

A preparation rich in nutrients that can prove useful not only in case of flu or cold, but also in pregnancy and breastfeeding

A simple preparation to find some heat during winter season, an important component of several traditional recipes of Italian regional cuisine, a valid help to find relief from a seasonal ailment. The chicken broth, rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, is our faithful ally at the table not only in terms of taste. Let's find out together how it can be useful for our well-being.

Influence? There is the chicken broth!

As already mentioned, one of the benefits of chicken broth is that it is particularly effective in contrast of the flu. While obviously not a drug, its essential amino acids make an important contribution to our immune system. The hot chicken broth can relieve cold symptoms thanks to the steam decongesting the respiratory tract. Generally, thanks to its important nutrient dowry, this broth is highly indicated for the recovery of "debilitated" people in convalescence.

Benefits for mothers and children

The proteins contained in the broth provide a contribution essential during pregnancy and breastfeeding for the construction of the tissues of the fetus and, subsequently, to strengthen the mother and baby with essential nutrients. Properly degreased with a skimmer or by solidification thanks to the cold, the chicken broth is a cholesterol-free preparation, as well as highly moisturizing given the high presence of water. If, on the other hand, there is no "degreasing", the chicken broth could prove useful in dealing with constipation: the fat contained in it is a valid remedy against the stagnation of feces in the intestines.


For this very reason, the chicken broth is highly rated not recommended for people suffering from gastroenteritis. Even in the case of gastritis, broth should be avoided: by slowing down the action of gastric juices, it can hinder the digestive process. Furthermore, the liver could have something to say in case of excessive or frequent intake of chicken broth, given its decisive role in the treatment and assimilation of proteins. We must also pay particular attention to the raw material, to quality of the chicken itself, to the ways in which it was raised and fed: the fertilizers used in the animal's diet can not only affect the organoleptic level, but, if added with drugs and antibiotics, can also have long-term consequences on human health.
