Bringing Its Superfood Pedigree to the Table
March-April 2020 • Vol 3, No 109
Along with versatility and flavor, cauliflower also brings its superfood pedigree to the table. As a cruciferous vegetable, cauliflower belongs to the same plant family as broccoli, kale, cabbage and collards. Each of these vegetables offers numerous anti-inflammatory benefits as well as support for our cardiovascular and digestive systems.
Cauliflower earns recognition as a superfood by being an excellent source of vitamins B6, C and K along with folate and pantothenic acid. It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and manganese. And, along with minimal calories, cauliflower proves to be a good source of vitamins B1, B2 and B3, in addition to protein, niacin and magnesium. Whew, that’s a superfood!
