Paneer is an excellent combination of taste and health. Paneer is not only rich in calcium, but also contains lots of vitamin B. Calcium is important for bone and cartilage growth and vitamin B helps the body to absorb and to distribute calcium properly. Therefore paneer is great for children, the elderly, and women who are pregnant.
100 gm of paneer yields about 18 gm of protein, perfect for vegetarians or those who weight train for muscle building and repair. Even though paneer is made from dairy, it can be digested easily.
Although high on the calorie meter (100 gm = 292 calories), paneer works for people who have an active lifestyle as they will burn those calories easily and gain its nutrients.
