The key to a balanced breakfast, according to Chef Molina, lies in the inclusion of dairy products, whole grains and fruits and Ibiza Gran Hotel goes out of its way to make sure that its Breakfast guests have a wide choice of healthy products to complement the traditional menu ingredients, including gluten free protein bars, sugar free candy and organic jams, to name only a few. Yoghurt plays an important part in the start to the day, with a station offering a choice from Greek to non-fat and a range of additions to personalise the experience, including syrups to enhance the taste (raspberry, mango and agave), fruits such as blueberries, raspberries and blackberries or maybe you prefer to add organic muesli. Yoghurt has been said to offer impressive health benefits, from the stabilization of the intestinal flora to the development of good bacteria helping to lower cholesterol and maintaining healthy bone structure.
