Romaine Lettuce

Romaine lettuce leaves are green in colour, and fade to a white stalk with a green tint in the centre of each leaf. The leaves also offer a neutral flavour, with a slight bitterness at the bottom, giving a distinctive flavour profile. Aside from the green romaine that we commonly see in grocery stores, romaine lettuce also comes in the red variety, with a blend of green at the stalk and a reddish-purple leafy top.

Health Benefits: 

  • This crispy and crunchy vegetable is an excellent source of vitamin K, an essential nutrient for blood clotting, wound healing and supporting bone health..
  • Surprisingly, romaine lettuce boasts a comparable vitamin A content to spinach for the same serving size. This is partly because romaine lettuce heads grow in a way that keeps their leaves more open and exposed to sun, allowing them to synthesise more vitamin A precursors (called carotenoids) than other lettuce varieties 
  • Romaine lettuce is also a good source of folate, a vital nutrient for a healthy heart, to prevent anaemia and to lower the risk of some types of birth defects in early pregnancy.
  • The pigment lutein is an antioxidant found in romaine lettuce. Like vitamin A, lutein is important for promoting eye health and reducing the risk of age-related vision loss.
