Current Facts

Collard greens are members of the economically important Brassicaceae family, known for its cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, and kale. Collard greens contain a chemical compound called phenylthiocarbamide, known more simply as PTC. This compound is responsible for the bitterness that people taste when they eat Collard greens. Specific human genes determine whether a person can taste this bitterness. Not all humans can taste the compound’s bitter tendencies, though it is a dominant trait in about 70% of the human population. Those who do taste the bitterness either enjoy bitter foods or absolutely dislike it.

Nutritional Value

Collard greens are loaded with health benefiting vitamins and compounds. They contain anti-inflammatory properties in the form of Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin K. They also contain the antioxidants beta-carotene, Vitamins C and E and detoxifying glucosinolates, compounds that are being studied for their abilities to prevent cancer as well as cardiovascular disease.

Applications

Collard greens are synonymous with slow cooking and simmering in a pot with ham hocks. The broth created after about 90 minutes of simmering is known as pot liquor and it is equal parts vitamin-rich, smoky and delicious. This age-old application is a benchmark for cooking Collard greens but there are many other ways to enjoy the greens.

A quick braise or blanch allows for full nutritional retention and maximum flavor. They can also be added to baked dishes as well. Though many may say the bitterness is off-putting when eaten raw, Collard greens can add flavor and texture to salad mixes. Complimentary ingredients include garlic, pork, chicken, grilled steak,, mushrooms, potatoes, apple cider vinegar, lemon, bay leaves, bacon fat, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, tomatoes, and chiles.


Health Benefits of Cooked Collard Greens

Not only do collard greens supply good doses of protein, fiber, calcium, and iron, but the leafy green vegetables also provide more impressive amounts of other key vitamins and minerals. Cooked collard greens don’t need to be limp and dull; prepared correctly, collard greens can be tasty in addition to being nutritious.

Vitamin A

A 1-cup serving of cooked collard greens contains 771 micrograms of vitamin A, which is slightly more than the 700 micrograms women need on a daily basis and close to the 900 micrograms men require. Vitamin A plays a role in the function of your skeletal system and the health of your eyes, skin, teeth and mucous membranes. The vitamin helps protect your cells from damage and can decrease your risk of cancer, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Vitamin K

A 1-cup serving of cooked collard greens contains 836 micrograms of vitamin K, which is significantly more than the 90 micrograms women need each day and the 120 micrograms men require. The primary job of vitamin K is to clot your blood when you injure yourself. You also need plenty of vitamin K for the health of your bones. The vitamin enables your body to use calcium properly, which helps maintain bone mass and might reduce your risk of osteoporosis.

Folate

Folate is a B vitamin and its primary function is to make new cells. The daily requirement of folate is 400 micrograms for adults and 600 to 800 micrograms for pregnant women. A 1-cup serving of cooked collard’s greens contains 177 micrograms.

Folate supports a healthy nervous system and helps close the neural tubes of unborn babies, which reduces the risk of certain birth defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly. The vitamin might also reduce the risk of heart defects and cleft lip, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
