Bivo is not a properly "dietary" food. By drinking Bivo you know exactly how many calories you are taking, as it contains about 400 calories, corresponding to one fifth of the calories recommended daily for normal adult daily activities. However Bivo does not impose any diet. Simply, among its various advantages, Bivo can also be useful for controlling the calories consumed during a diet and for avoiding the traditional high-calorie and low-quality "fast food".
The calories of Bivo are divided as follows: they come for about 43% from carbohydrates, for about 7% from fiber, for about 25% from proteins, for about 25% from lipids . This proportion is in line with that typical of the Mediterranean Diet.
One Bivo contains about a fifth of the daily requirement of the main vitamins and mineral salts. Particularly important for who follows a vegan diet are vitamin B12 and vitamin D, in addition to mineral salts as calcium.
