5 Health Benefits of Parsnip

What is a parsnip and what is a wild parsnip?

  1. Root vegetables are hearty and delicious, and they are packed with nutrients. One of my all-time favorite root vegetables is the parsnip. But what are parsnips really? They are vegetables that have been cultivated since ancient times and are eaten for their edible, fleshy white carrot and parsnips (also called the pastinaca sativa) are actually members of the same family as the carrot and parsley (the Apiaceae family or also the umbel family mentioned). Other members of the Apaiaceae family are the orange carrots, fennel, dill, caraway, chervil, cumin and parsley. Parsnips are definitely very similar to carrots, but they have a cream-colored skin and are, in fact, really different from carrots.

  1. So what is a wild parsnip and how does it differ from other parsnips? Wild parsnips (pastinaca sativa) are an invasive Eurasian weed with an edible root. However, the leaves, stems and flowers contain poisonous sap, which can cause severe burns. It is therefore much safer to buy your parsnip (root only) at the local farmers market or supermarket to take advantage of all the good things parsnips have to offer.

Five benefits of parsnip

  1. With its impressively high content of vitamin C, parsnips are a root vegetable that can promote eye health and in particular a common problem many people experience later in life - called macular degeneration. - can occur. People over the age of 60 are most likely to develop this degenerative eye problem, but that doesn't mean you should wait until you get older to put together a diet that helps maintain optimal eye health.

  1. A study published in 2016 found that people who develop age-related macular degeneration generally have a lower intake of vitamin C as well as other important nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, beta. have ta-carotene, vitamin E, zinc and vitamin D. Vitamin C is reported in almost all scientific studies covering the causes and prevention of macular degeneration. Due to the high vitamin C content of parsnips, consumption of parsnips is a great natural way to increase vitamin C levels in the body.

  1. As a vegetable, and more specifically as a root vegetable, parsnips also contain a significant amount of fiber. You probably already know that one of the most important ways to keep your digestive system in good working order is to have regular bowel movements. Getting enough fiber is one of the most important ways to prevent or relieve constipation and keep the bowels moving.

  1. In Europe it is very common that people do not get enough fiber through their diet. To avoid getting too little fiber, you can increase your intake of fiber-rich foods like parsnips and it will probably improve your digestion too.

  1. It is not very common for someone to have a folate deficiency, also known as a deficiency in folic acid or vitamin B9. Folate is what you naturally get in your food, but folic acid is a man-made supplemental version of this important nutrient. Good news - just 100 grams of parsnips provides about 11% of the daily recommended amount for folate.

  1. Folic acid is extremely important for human health. It is especially very important for pregnant women and their growing babies. Research has shown that to reduce the likelihood that children born with neural tube defects, such as cleft palate, spina bifida or brain damage, pregnant women will need a higher intake of folic acid. Women should take this before conception and during pregnancy in order to meet their needs. Consuming parsnips is a natural way to boost dietary folate intake.

  1. Folic acid is not only healthy and important for women or pregnant women. Being deficient in folate or folic acid can also cause:

  1. Not only is parsnip rich in heart healthy fiber, but it also contains other nutrients such as vitamin C and folate that are known to positively affect your rikketik and increase the can prevent development of cardiovascular disease.

  1. The best way to get all the vitamins and minerals you need from your diet is to turn your plate into a rainbow of sorts at your next meal. It is definitely good advice and to be more specific means that you should regularly fill your plate with fruits and vegetables from the five different color groups: red and pink, blue and purple, yellow and orange, green and of course white. and brown.

  1. It should come as no surprise to you that parsnips belong in the list of white and brown foods. So for the sake of your heart and overall health, you should add more parsnips to a healthy diet to get all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need.

  1. Manganese is an important part of many enzymes in the body. What kind of enzymes? Just to name a few: the enzymes that affect digestion, antioxidant function and wound healing.

  1. Bone health should not be forgotten in this list either because manganese is a co-factor ("a helping molecule") of glycosyltransferases which are the enzymes you need for health and production of cartilage and bone. If you do not get enough manganese through your diet, weak bones and other skeletal disorders become a problem. Most women with osteoporosis have been shown to have very low levels of manganese in their bodies.

  1. Fortunately, parsnips contain a good dose of manganese, which can promote both enzyme production and bone health.

The nutritional value of parsnips

  1. The powerful parsnip root is number 1 on my healthy food list for a good reason - it really is packed with healthy nutrients.

  1. 100 grams of cooked parsnip slices contain approximately:

 How can you use parsnips?

  1. Parsnips have a light yellow, cream or ivory skin and a shape that can be described as a more spherical or a very full root. When choosing parsnips, choose the ones that are firm, dry and have no blemishes or unsightly skin. A parsnip that is small to medium in size has the best flavor. Parsnips are a root vegetable that is available in supermarkets all year round, but are in season between fall and spring.

  1. Store fresh parsnips in a paper towel and then place in a sealed bag or container. Don't wash the parsnip until you actually start using it. You can also just put them whole in the fridge. Either way, you can keep them in the vegetable drawer of your fridge for about two weeks.

  1. Before using a parsnip, you need to peel it and cut the top and bottom (just like a carrot). Then you can cut the parsnips any way you want. When it comes to cooking parsnips, you have many different options. They can be cooked and used in dishes in much the same way as carrots. Parsnips can also be eaten raw, but they are sweeter and crunchier when cooked. They can of course also be baked, roasted or steamed. And once cooked, you can also mash the parsnips to make a puree similar to mashed potatoes.

  1. When used in a dish, parsnips add a distinct earthy flavor and really give the dish something extra. Parsnips are great for cooking in soups, stews and roasts. For example, parsnips are the perfect addition to my stew dish, which I prepare in a slow cooker. It's also great to add parsnips to soups and stews, but don't let them cook for longer than 30 minutes so they can retain their flavor and texture. Parsnips can also be grated and eaten raw in salads.

The history and interesting facts about parsnips

  1. In 1753 Carolus Linnaeus was the first to describe parsnips in his Species Plantarum. At the time, it was mainly grown for its edible root. Since then, however, the wild parsnip has disappeared from most gardens and made its way to roadsides and other places where it now grows wild.

  1. Parsnips are closely related to carrots and parsley. Sometimes parsnips are sometimes confused with the root of the parsley. How can you tell the difference? You will see that the parsley root, which is sold in the supermarket, also have the green on top while the parsnip is only sold as a root.

  1. Many people used to use parsnips to treat a toothache and tired, aching feet.

The possible side effects of parsnips

  1. Wild parsnips have an edible root, but their leaves and stems are highly poisonous. That is why wild parsnips are also called poisonous parsnips. Wild parsnip produces a juice that contains chemicals that can cause human skin to react to sunlight, resulting in intense burns, rashes or blisters (phytophotodermatitis).

  1. Wild parsnips are most often found in open areas such as roadsides, meadows and fields. They have yellowish-green flowers that appear on the plant in umbrella-shaped clusters in June and July. I strongly recommend avoiding consumption of wild parsnip root as you run the risk of coming into contact with wild parsnip juice. When livestock eat wild parsnips, it is known to negatively affect their fertility and weight gain.

  1. It is also possible to be allergic to parsnips. If you have any symptoms of food allergy after eating parsnip, stop consuming it and seek medical attention if necessary.

  1. If you are not used to eating high-fiber foods, adding parsnips to your diet at first because of its fiber content can cause flatulence, bloating and cramps.

Finallyâ €!

  1. Parsnips are really delicious. They have an earthy, nutty and almost perfectly sweet taste.

  1. When added to soups, stews and other dishes, they make the meal that much more satisfying and healthy. Including parsnips in your dishes benefits eye, bone, heart and digestive health, plus parsnips can also improve the health of an unborn baby due to their high folic acid content. If you haven't tried parsnips so far, I highly recommend giving this vegetable a shot.

  1. However, if you see wild parsnips growing near your house, I recommend that you leave these tasty because you don't want to risk serious skin reactions. Fortunately, it's easy to find parsnips (only the safe, edible version) at the market or the supermarket.
