Mixed Baby Kales

Nutritional Benefits: 

Earthbound Farm Organic Kale is 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.
 

Why choose organic kale?

Kale is #16 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead.

At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic baby kale without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water, and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic kale tastes better, too!
