About Organic Red Kale

Organic Red Kale from Phantassie. Kale is a nutritional standout in three basic areas: (1) antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, (2) much-needed macronutrients, and (3) cancer-preventive nutrients called glucosinolates.

In addition to conventional antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese, kale also provides us with at least 45 different recently discovered flavonoids, including kaempferol and quercetin. Many of the flavonoids in kale are also now known to function not only as antioxidants, but also as anti-inflammatory compounds.

Fibre and omega-3s are two macronutrients largely deficient in the average diet and provided by kale in impressive amounts. While kale is not as concentrated in omega-3s as some of the other cruciferous vegetables - and certainly not in the same category as walnuts or salmon - it still provides us with a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the basic building block for all omega-3 fats.

Kale's special mix of cancer-preventing glucosinolates has been the hottest area of research on this cruciferous vegetable. Kale is an especially rich source of glucosinolates, and once kale is eaten and digested, these glucosinolates can be converted by the body into cancer preventive compounds. Some of this conversion process can also take place in the food itself, prior to consumption.

Also worth noting in kale's nutritional profile is its vitamin K content. Kale contains nearly twice the amount of vitamin K as most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables.

Kale is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin C, and manganese; a very good source of copper, tryptophan, calcium, vitamin B6, and potassium; and a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin B2, protein, vitamin B1, folate, phosphorous, and vitamin B3.

Raw Vegan Cheesy Green Black Red Kale Chips Recipe

Summary: Most (all ?) of us don't eat enough green leafy vegetables. Kale is perhaps the healthiest of all, and kale chips are the tastiest way to include more of this green leafy wonder into your diet. The nutritional yeast gives them a lovely cheesy flavour, without the dairy. This recipe uses 3 sorts of kale and is for raw dehydrated kale chips, so you need a dehydrator. Alternatively, you can use an oven set on the lowest heat possible.
