Boston lettuce growing hydroponically

Boston lettuce is a variety of butterhead lettuce, known for its smooth, loosely bunched, tender leaves. Because of its delicacy, this heading lettuce is often kept in plastic clamshell containers in grocery stores to protect it from accidental bruising.

Useful in a number of dishes, Boston lettuce is rich in nutrients and can easily be added to salads, sandwiches, and wraps. The delicate leaves can also be used to wrap other foods, creating a low-carbohydrate wrapper rich in nutrients.

Macronutrient Makeup

As Fresh Cut Boston lettuces are frequently quite small, you may decide to use the entire head for a meal-sized salad. Alternatively, you can mix the lettuce in with other types of vegetables or leafy greens. A 1-cup serving of cut-up butter lettuce contains only 21 calories per serving. With less than half a gram of fat, 3.63 grams of carbohydrate, 0.74 grams of protein, 1.53 grams of sugars and only 8 milligrams of sodium, butter lettuce is a low-fat, low-calorie, low-sodium food choice that is nonetheless rich in other nutrients.

Vitamin A Source

A 1-cup serving of cut Boston lettuce contains 91 micrograms of vitamin A per serving. As an antioxidant, vitamin A helps your body protect itself from damage from environmental toxins as well as free radicals.

According to MedlinePlus, the recommended dietary allowance for vitamin A for adult men 14 and older is 900 micrograms, while for women the amount is 700 micrograms.

The Clotting Vitamin

Vitamin A, also known as the clotting vitamin, is essential for clots to form in your blood and may help to maintain healthy, strong bones — especially in the elderly.

    Why This Is Our Favorite Lettuce ? What is it? Bibb, Boston, Butter... It goes by many names. And it's slightly more expensive than your average romaine.
