Is Cabbage Good for Me?

Fun Food Facts!

We often have cabbage in our vegetable section of your bag – but did you realise how good it is for you?

  • Cabbage has virtually no fat. One cup of shredded raw cabbage contains 50 calories and 5 grams of dietary fibre
  • Cabbage can be steamed, boiled, braised, microwaved, stuffed, stir-fried or eaten raw
  • One cup of shredded raw cabbage contains 190% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps protect cells and keeps them healthy. It also keeps blood vessels, bones and cartilage healthy too
  • Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K. 150 grams of shredded, boiled cabbage contains 91% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin K, which is needed for blood clotting. Vitamin K also helps keep bones healthy
  • Cabbage and it’s relatives (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts) are rich sources of phytochemicals, naturally-occurring plant chemicals that may protect people against some forms of cancer
