The hamburger, always with quality meats
And this is how Carnissers Xarcuters de Catalunya understands it that, taking advantage of the fact that May 28 is International Hamburger Day, has organized a campaign that precisely promotes quality, artisan production, nutritional aspects and also the gourmet vision of hamburgers. “The hamburgers made with quality meats from our member establishments are healthy, nutritious and suitable for all ages.”
But one of the main contributions of meats, and hamburgers, are the vitamins of group B. Especially B12, the most essential vitamin for our body, which ensures the normal functioning of the brain, the nervous system and is essential for the formation of blood. And it is only found in foods of animal origin.
The emeritus professor in Nutrition and Bromatology at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona, Abel Mariné insists: “Meats and their derivatives provide excellent proteins, B vitamins (including B12 , which is not found in vegetables), minerals such as phosphorus, zinc and, above all, iron, whose meats are the best source, not only because of its content but because its iron is absorbed better than that of other foods, especially than vegetables. It is not easy for our body to absorb and have enough iron through our diet if we do without meat and derivatives “.

May 28 is International Hamburger Day, but it is also Burger Solidarity Day. “All people have the right to be able to enjoy the quality hamburgers offered by our member establishments,” they point out from the Federation. “Our commitment goes beyond our activity. Solidarity is also part of our trade. And that is why the annual hamburger campaign also adds this solidarity component.”
