Halloumi has several benefits and nutrients such as high calcium and protein. As there is no meat in this dish it is important that you still get your daily dose of protein so halloumi is a good substitute. Protein is important for promoting proper growth and development, as well as supporting muscle growth, immune function, and weight control.
Halloumi has a high sodium content so be cautious when adding salt to the dish. Though, studies do show that the average human currently consumes less sodium than average.
