Healthy, because

Even smarter

Chard contains a lot of fibre, thus improving digestion and helping to bind and eliminate toxins in the body. The leafy vegetables are also rich in folate (folic acid), which, together with vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, helps break down the amino acid homocysteine, which is a risk factor for atherosclerosis. In addition, folic acid is particularly important for women: when they want to have children or during pregnancy, the vitamin has been proven to protect against malformations in the unborn child.

Best quality and optimal freshness at Mangold can be recognized at first sight: The stems and leaves must appear juicy and fresh, the leaves should be strong green and not have any yellow or brown spots.
