Baghlava Yazdi Calories & Nutrition Values

Baklava or Baghlava cake or as it's also known as Baghlava Yazdi in Iran is a popular Iranian delicacy. Although the name "Yazdi" clearly refers to Yazd Province, the extra use of rose water suggests that province of Shiraz may has had some influence in baklava's early or final shape. Baklava Yazdi is very sweet and delicious and it's exactly that much high in sugar so people with sugar related diseases should not approach. It contains about 38 percent sugar but just to compare it with a popular soda that we all enjoy (but shouldn't) during our lunch or dinner, baklava still contains slightly less sugar than a can of soda. 3.5 oz (100g) of Baghlava Yazdi has 320 calories (104 calories from fat) and 11.5g of fat and 70mg of cholesterol and 6.0g of protein.
