Food Facts: Spinach
Blogged by: Parkmore Shopping Centre 19 May 2016 View comments
Today’s food facts from Norton Plaza is about Spinach. It’s no news that leafy greens are good for us but why?  And how?  Well a few reasons actually!

Spinach is full of anti-aging antioxidants and pigments as iron which is fundamental in restoring our energy levels (there was some truth in Popeye’s love for the green!)  Spinach is also a great source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, magnesium and vitamin B2 – the list never stops!  The vitamin K (maintains bone health) is especially important as it is difficult to find this vitamin in such a rich form! The Chlorphyll (what gives spinach it’s deep green colour) has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties promoting healthy eye-sight preventing cataracts.

All that and it’s delicious!

Pick up some spinach for your next meal from Keysborough's favourite fresh food shop, Parkmore Grocer.
