Health benefits of Escarole lettuce

  • Escarole is one of the very low-calorie leafy vegetables. 100 g fresh leaves carry just 17 calories; however, it contributes about 8% of daily-required intake (DRI) of fiber.
  • Current research studies suggest that high inulin and fiber content in escarole help reduce glucose and LDL-cholesterol levels in diabetes and obese patients.
  • The Escarole lettuce is enriched with good amount Vitamin A and ß-carotene. Both these compounds are known to have antioxidant properties. Carotenes convert into vitamin-A inside the human body. Furthermore, vitamin-A is required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. In addition, it is also an essential vitamin for good eye-sight. Consumption of natural vegetables/greens rich in vitamin-A helps to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.
  • Further, it contains good amounts of many essential B-complex groups of vitamins such as folic acid, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (B3). These vitamins are essential in the sense that human body requires them through external sources to replenish and employ in fat, protein, and carbohydrate metabolism.
  • Additionally, escarole is a good source of minerals like manganese, copper, iron, and potassium. Manganese is used as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Potassium is an important intracellular electrolyte helps counter the hypertension effects of sodium.

    Escarole is versatile. You can enjoy it raw or cook with it; braise, grill, or sauté escarole. Tear it into pieces and add to soups, such as minestrone or a white bean stew. Dress raw leaves with a garlicky vinaigrette or pair leaves with a creamy dip.
