Kohlrabi Nutrition Facts
The kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage (crucifer or mustard) family. The part we eat is the enlarged stem from which the leaves develop. The enlarged stem is best harvested as soon as it grows to a diameter of two to three inches. Kohlrabi may be white, green or purple in color. They are eaten raw in salads or can be cooked like a turnip.
Kohlrabi is a good source of thiamin, folate, magnesium and phosphorus, and a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, copper, manganese and especially vitamin C. One cup of raw kohlrabi contains 140% of the RDA of vitamin C.
Kohlrabi is very low in saturated fat, sodium and calories. One cup diced and cooked kohlrabi contains only 40 calories.
