About Organic Fennel Italy
Fennel features prominently in Mediterranean cuisine, where bulbs and fronds are used, both raw and cooked, in side dishes, salads, pastas, vegetable dishes such as artichoke dishes in Greece, and risottos. Fennel seed is a common ingredient in Italian sausages and meatballs and northern European rye breads. It is a highly aromatic and flavourful herb with culinary and medicinal uses, and is one of the primary ingredients of absinthe.
Fennel is full of beneficial nutrients including vitamin C, fibre, potassium, manganese, folate, niacin, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, iron, and copper. It is packed with phytonutrients, antioxidants and fibre. It also contains large amounts of folate (a B vitamin).
