Short answer, yes, of course it does, it’s a vegetable. Does it have as many nutrients as say Kale or Watercress? No, but it still has plenty of nutrients to make it worth eating. When it comes to veggies, you can’t go wrong. And it tastes great!
“A powerhouse fruit or vegetable is a fruit or vegetable that’s packed with nutrients that are beneficial in preventing chronic disease,” lead researcher Dr. Jennifer Di Noia said in a video. The William Paterson University scientist’s findings were published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention journal.
Well, guess what, Iceberg makes that powerhouse list!
Below is the nutrient density list that Dr Noia created, and iceberg is #29. Not too bad for something that has received such a bad reputation? It beats out turnips, sweet potatoes, leeks, and even radishes!
Our mission is to get people to eat more veggies. We started growing iceberg because of the mass appeal which means more people will be more willing to eat it. And the more people that eat it, the better we will all be! So next time, don’t be afraid to dive into a box of our baby iceberg and enjoy every tasty and healthy bite!
