Nutritive value

Duck blood is the "scavenger" of human body dirt. It can improve bowel movement, remove the sediment and dirt in intestinal cavity, purify the metal particles and other harmful substances in dust, so as to avoid accumulative poisoning. Therefore, anemia patients, the elderly, women and engaged in dust, textiles, sanitation, mining and other work should eat duck blood. Duck blood contains vitamin K, which can promote blood clotting and stop bleeding. Duck blood fat content is very low, suitable for people with high blood lipids often eat. 

Fans are rich in carbohydrates, dietary fiber, protein, niacin and calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and other minerals. Noodles have a good flavor, it can absorb a variety of delicious soup flavor, plus the noodles themselves soft and smooth, more refreshing and pleasant. 

Matters needing attention

Duck blood is rich in nutritional value, but patients with hypercholesterolemia, liver disease, hypertension and coronary heart disease should eat less; plain spleen Yang is not strong, cold dampness diarrhea people avoid eating.

In the traditional processing of fans, it is necessary to add 0.5% alum (aluminum sulfate) to increase the toughness of vermicelli. Studies have shown that excessive intake of aluminum sulfate can cause chronic damage to the central nervous system, and excessive doses may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. In addition, excessive aluminum sulfate may also increase the risk of heart disease and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Children are less likely to eat because the nervous system is developing. Excessive alum can also affect the development of the nervous system of the fetus. Pregnant women should eat less. Fans are mainly starch, high sugar content, more easily than food absorption, so people with diabetes had better eat less.
