Nutritional values

The spring vegetable rhubarb contains a lot of potassium. This mineral is necessary for the functioning of nerves, all muscle movements, the maintenance of tissue tension and the function of various enzymes. 

Good to know: red rhubarb varieties, i.e. with red skin and red pulp, have a sweeter taste. In contrast to their green counterparts, they contain less fruit and oxalic acid and do not need to be peeled before cooking. Outside the rhubarb season, peaches, mirabelle plums or plums also taste great with the vanilla cream.
