Devotees of kale will already be familiar with this versatile and flavorful green, but for the uninitiated — whether you’re unfamiliar with how to cook kale or wary of its robust taste — our baby kale is a great introduction to a green you really want to meet!
Kale is a member of the cabbage family, cousin to broccoli, collards and Brussels sprouts, to name a few. It’s delicious and nutritious…but it also takes some preparation to get it ready for recipes.
Because this vegetable is so very, very good for your body, we’ve developed a medley of baby kales tender and flavorful enough to be used raw in salad. We harvest the leaves before they mature to ensure they're tender and sweet.
Mature kale is bold and peppery with a chewy texture, so it’s rarely served raw. Baby kale, on the other hand, is very mild with a flavor profile similar to baby arugula (with less bite). Its leaves are sturdier than those of many other baby lettuces, so baby kale salads can stand up to a wide array of ingredients and bolder flavors without being overwhelmed.
Forget about hassling with all the prep work involved with mature, full-size kale and discover the convenience and fun of baby kale. Earthbound Farm Organic Mixed Baby Kales are wonderfully versatile performers in all kinds of recipes: substitute these tender-yet-robust baby leaves for ordinary lettuce in your favorite salad; zip them up in a power smoothie; add them to cooked dishes like pasta, frittatas, stir fries and soups. Mixed Baby Kales are a great way to discover and enjoy a nutritious vegetable you may not have known you could love!

Earthbound Farm Organic Mixed Baby Kales are an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese, and a good source of calcium, copper, vitamin B6 and potassium.
Kale is part of the cruciferous family of vegetables, which makes it rich in a unique antioxidant that, when consumed as part of a healthy diet, may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.
This leafy green is also one of the richest sources of lutein, an antioxidant shown to promote eye health.
Kale is a great choice for people who avoid dairy products; it contains 12% of the Daily Value for calcium, which plays a role in bone and teeth health. To maximize your nutrient intake, try mixing up different green leafy vegetables that contain both vitamin C and iron, such as kale, mâche and spinach, as vitamin C helps the body better absorb plant-based iron.
