Project Description

In order to preserve the metabolic, cognitive and physical abilities of seniors, and thus their autonomy, a balanced nutrition, with adequate intakes of proteins, omega-3 and micro-nutrients is essential.

The Columbus egg is the perfect companion. It is ideally concentrated in micronutrients, complete proteins and omega-3, including DHA, protects the brain and inflammation of the joints.

The 3 key points

  • Preserve your cognitive and relational abilities.

  • Maintain good physical mobility.

  • Decrease the inflammation of your joints.

The Columbus tip


A daily protein intake of one gram per kilogram of body weight is recommended. This can be achieved through

  • white meat,
  • fish,
  • eggs,
  • dairy products,
  • cereals,
  • legumes, including tofu and quinoa.

For example, a slice of Columbus ham contains 8 g of protein, a Columbus egg 6.3 g, a portion of Gruyère, 12 g.

Note also the chromium which participates in the maintenance of the muscular mass (liver, egg yolk or complete cereals).
