How healthy is kale?

  1. Curly kale, an everyday winter vegetable for the Dutch. However, once you get into it, kale could well be one of the greatest superfoods. Even America has discovered kale as a superfood. But just how healthy is kale and where can kale play a positive role when it comes to our health?

The base

  1. Kale is a leafy vegetable that is easy to grow. Kale does not need special soil and can actually grow anywhere. It is a typical vegetable that we eat in the fall and winter. Officially, kale is called Brassica oleracea var. Sabellica.

Shrub kale

  1. The bush kale is sown in June and planted within a month and finally harvested between September and February. This means that the kale can be eaten almost fresh from the field. In March the fairly long stems shoot differently and bloom.

Dwarf or cut kale

  1. This kale should not grow long stems (they have thin stems and eyes as if they form a rosette), precisely because it is being cut. Sowing is normally done in July and harvested between mid-September and early November.

Nutrients

  1. Kale is healthy and nowadays counted under superfoods (and is also affordable). But what exactly is the nutrient content of kale?

Antioxidants / against diseases

  1. Kale contains many antioxidants, which are important for protecting the cells in your body against free radicals. Free radicals are atoms that are in fact out of balance. If free radicals are not produced “on purpose” by the body, they can cause disease. Antioxidants are therefore important for the body.

Sustainable

  1. Kale is also sustainable, because compare it to beef. Kale is "ready" for consumption in about 60 days. With a piece of beef from the cow you need 1.5 to 2 years. The substances required to produce the product are eleven times as much for the cow as for kale.

How to apply?

  1. In addition to the well-known stew with potatoes, sausage and a dimple of gravy (not too much), you can also mix kale in a salad or make a vegetable juice in a smoothie. That also makes kale a vegetable that you can eat more often ... and try a variant yourself. For example, replace the sausage with bacon, put kale in a smoothie with banana or use it in a salad with a piece of salmon. Kale is extremely healthy, tasty and versatile.
