Frisée

Nutritional Benefits: 

A fluffy source of vitamin C

Earthbound Farm organic frisée is a good source of vitamin C, which plays a role in wound healing, skin health and supporting a healthy immune system. The vitamin C in this lettuce also has antioxidant properties that, as part of a healthy diet, may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases. And vitamin C can help your body better absorb plant-based iron, so try combining frisée with other iron-containing produce, like spinach. 

Choosing organically grown frisée is a smart and effective way to reduce exposure to pesticide residues, as the Environmental Working Group ranks conventionally grown lettuce high on their "Shopper's Guide" list of produce most commonly found with pesticide residues.
 

Why choose organic frisée?

When they’re grown conventionally, greens like frisée (and others in the endive family) absorb impurities like pesticides. Choose Earthbound Farm certified organic frisée to be sure that it’s been grown without toxic synthetic chemicals, using sustainable farming methods that help keep those potentially dangerous chemicals out of the food supply and out of the environment. Plus, we think organic tastes better, too!
