Is Ponmo actually healthy for your body?
Ponmo and rice, ponmo and beans, ponmo and Abacha, the list could go on and on and on because ponmo can literally go with anything but have we ever stopped to ask ourselves “Is this food beneficial to my health?”

Can someone on a weight loss journey eat unlimited ponmo since it has no nutritional value?
Ponmo has no nutritional value but has calories. So for weight loss, Moderation is key
It has also been pointed out that ponmo may contain some protein. Collagen is a protein in skin, muscle, and meat of animals but there is something called Protein Quality. Collagen is not a complete protein because it is lacking in the amino acid tryptophan.
From a nutritional point of view, collagen and gelatin are poor-quality sole source of protein since they do not contain all the essential amino acids in the proportions that the human body requires—they are not ‘complete proteins’.
