What makes Vietnamese Cuisine Popular & Healthiest?

Like many countries, Vietnam is no different when you talk about some specialty dishes and healthy food. Vietnamese cuisine gives huge importance to a perfect balance when they prepare their dishes, particularly. Traditional Vietnamese food aims for striking a balance in various aspects of its cuisine like nutrients, taste, and presentations as well, and that is achieved by paying attention to basically 5 elements per aspect.

When you talk about spices, for example, a balance is pursued between bitter, sour, spice sweet, and salty. When Vietnamese food is presented, cooks strongly aim to have the colors red, green, black, white, and yellow in their spread. That can be the main reason, why Vietnamese is considered to be one of the healthiest cuisines around the world. They specifically try to bring in the perfect balance of nutrients such as fat, carbohydrates, minerals, water, and protein.

Vietnamese cuisine is rich in minerals and vitamins, including vitamins like B1, B3, B6, C zinc, copper, folate, biotin, potassium, and magnesium – all having been rightly proven to boost your energy levels as well.

  • Helps in improving digestion

Most Vietnamese dishes are often served with pretty generous portions of various fresh herbs that aid in relief from nausea, indigestion, and headaches.

  • Helps to keep you looking younger

Vietnamese salad and soups are packed with great antioxidants, along with vitamin A and E which could slow your aging process. Vitamin A heals scars and thus fends off unwanted wrinkles while vitamin E helps to fight free radicals.

  • Helps in regulating your blood sugar level

As most dishes are gluten-free, there is no need to worry about drops or steep spikes in your blood sugar level. For example, Vietnamese soups and spring rolls are pretty low in sugar, maybe lesser than 5g per serving.

  • Helps to lose weight

As Vietnamese food preparations are low in fat and calories, they are mainly flavored with several spices and herbs and not dairy and oil and are full of vegetables and fruits, they not only make you feel full but also help lose weight.

A good quantity of vitamin C, iron, protein, and other several minerals, all help to keep your skin and hair healthy.
