About Organic Leeks
Leeks are a tender, edible member of the lily family. They have a mild onion taste with a slightly sweet edge and look like over-grown green onions. Leeks contain many sulphur compounds and an impressive amount of polyphenols, including the flavonoid kaempferol. These substances play a considerably important role in support of our body's antioxidant and detox systems as well as the formation of our connective tissue. Leeks are a very good source of manganese and a good source of vitamin C, iron, folate, and vitamin B6.
