By sight the swede is similar to big turnip, its pulp is yellow - orange color. This vegetable is useful to health - in 100 g of a product at 40 calories contains: 2,5 g of cellulose and 8 g of carbohydrates, and also calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, besides, vitamins C, almost all group B, carotene, vitamin E. Vitamin C in a swede as much how many in a white cabbage, and - it is more minerals. Besides, this vitamin remains in a swede much longer, than in cabbage.

The swede is used in medical foods, especially at treatment chronic zheludochno - intestinal diseases (at sharp - it is contraindicated!) at diseases of heart and kidneys, and also as laxative, diuretic and expectorant means.

On taste she reminds turnip.
