Is Cabbage Good For You?

by Toni Olukiran

1min read

Cabbage can have a bad reputation for its strong smell, but it’s a fantastic vegetable to cook with and handy to throw in many recipes. We took a look at whether it's also good for you and the nutritional properties it has.

What is cabbage? 

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that comes from the same family as broccoli, kale and cauliflower. It comes in different varieties, including sweetheart, white and purple cabbage. It is a versatile vegetable that can be used to make fermented food such as kimchi, and can be eaten raw in coleslaws and salads or cooked in meals like stir-fries. 

Does cabbage have nutritional value?

Raw cabbage is actually packed with lots of nutrients:

  • It’s a source of protein and fibre
  • It is very high in essential vitamins, particularly vitamin K, where 90 grams can yield 85% of your recommended daily intake. It is also a great source of vitamins C
  • It is a good source for a range of minerals, including folate, manganese and calcium

Is cabbage good for you?

Cabbage is great for you and it is a worthy vegetable to add into your diet. It is packed with antioxidants and can lessen chronic inflammation. It also improved your gut health and digestive system.
