The Superfood Everybody Is Craving For? It’s Cabbage (And Here’s Why)

SHARE

The humble cabbage is on the lips (and on the plates) of every chic food lover in the world.

It’s hard to believe it, since cabbage hasn’t the charm of exotic countries and it is part of our daily diet.

But it’s a trend now, as one can see from the menus of the restaurants and the market data, which have registered a sharp increase in sales.

As it often happens, the greatest treasures are hidden in the back garden.

Cabbage has never been one of the most beloved veggies, probably because of its not particularly pleasant (!) aroma. The same can be said about the other vegetables belonging to the cruciferous family, like broccoli and Brussels sprouts.

But for some time now cabbage has become an object of some interest, both medical and gastronomic.

One of the reasons is that this superfood hides a truly amazing flavor, especially if eaten as Plato Chic Superfood suggests.

 

Cabbage: A Food Treasure You Can’t Do Without!

Let’s be true: cabbage doesn’t evoke a blaze of colors and flavors.

It has always been associated with the color white and a not particularly interesting soft texture, because people are used to eat it boiled. Well, overcooked actually!

Used as a side dish of other finest ingredients more suited to become protagonists, cabbage has never been a big star in cooking.

But the reason is not to be found in its flavor: this humble veggie has never truly been understood and valued. Maybe because it’s quite common, for years it’s been taken for granted. Until the last scientific researches.

Recently, in fact, several medical researchers have proven that cabbage is an amazing source of benefits for our health.

As in the best fairy-tales, the frog has finally become a prince, and with the white horse too!

Cabbage has shown itself as one of the most nutritious superfoods, whose characteristics are better maintained if eaten raw. Moreover, in this way its flavor becomes even more interesting and good!

But let’s have a look at the nutritional values of this amazing superfood:

  • Cabbage is rich in flavonoids (more than 30 different types!), powerful antioxidants that contrast free radical and protect the body from cellular ageing.
  • It contains lots of minerals and vitamins like potassium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, folic acid and vitamin C, important nutrients for the general well-being of the body and for the health of the bones
  • Cabbage contains sulforaphane which, besides being the cause of the characteristic aroma, is a real help for our health! Among the many benefits it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, it regulates the sugars in the blood, it purifies the liver and reduces bad cholesterol
  • Cabbage is rich in fibers, which are very useful to regulate digestion
