ORGANIC DAIKON RADISH
Known as a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, kale and cabbage, the daikon radish is said to have origins in the Mediterranean. After it spread to Asia, it became a highly valued ingredient. Appearing as a big root (in fact, daikon actually means “big root”), the flavor of the daikon is not quite as strong or peppery as the red radish. It is crisp, and its texture is similar to an Asian pear. It can be eaten raw, or cooked using several different methods.
The daikon radish is one of those little known superfoods that appears most often as a garnish in sushi restaurants. But with very low calories/cholesterol and a high amount of fiber, it’s a shame to relegate it to just a garnish. Instead consider these health benefits and the many ways the radish can be enjoyed.
It is very high in Vitamin C, potassium, and phosphorus. Additionally, it contains several beneficial enzymes that aid in digestion as well as phytonutrients that help to fight against cancer.
Daikon helps strengthening the immune system and cleansing the blood.
