Good for you
Super low in kilojoules and carbohydrates, asparagus will have little effect on your blood glucose levels, but will
have a huge effect on your nutrient intake!
It contains an array of different vitamins and minerals required for good health, including vitamin C, folate, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and potassium
(to name a few!), plus several phytochemicals
to help support healthy blood vessels.
Summer is the perfect time to indulge in fresh asparagus. Try one of our tasty recipes, add it to your next stir-fry or toss
through a fresh salad for a different flavour and texture. Asparagus also makes the perfect accompaniment
to a dip platter in place of crackers.
If you are on a blood-thinning medication and need to monitor your vitamin K intake, it may be best to keep your
portions small and check with your healthcare team.
