A Few Words about Healthy Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is a tasty and useful vegetable, somewhat unusual, with a stalk and “apple” from which leafy stems grow. It belongs to the cabbage family, and it originates in northern Europe. Young vegetables are very juicy, soft and delicious, mostly used raw as a salad. Mature veggies are most often used cooked, braised and baked.

The vegetable is extremely rich in vitamins and dietary fibers and contains only 27 kcal per 100 g. Fresh is a good source of vitamin C, providing 62 mg per 100 g. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is soluble in water and is a powerful antioxidant. It helps the body to maintain healthy connective tissue, teeth, and gums.
