Vegetable grown in northern Italy, with a globular, knotty shape.
Only its root is eaten. It consists largely of water and therefore is low in calories, carbohydrates, proteins, and a good amount of vitamins and minerals like iron, potassium, and manganese.
It has important digestive and demineralizing powers, and thanks to its essential oil it also has a diuretic and purifying action.
Asparagus is a late-spring, low-calorie product with fundamental diuretic and antioxidant properties.
Rich in water and low in fat, it is cholesterol-free.
The presence of plant fibres makes it particularly suitable for intestinal regularity.
It also contains potassium, folic acid, phosphorus, calcium, and several important vitamins, especially A, C, and some from the B group.
