Nutritional values

This low-calorie starter covers your daily requirement of vitamin A, also known as the "eye vitamin", because it isupports healthy vision.

The fresher the spinach, the healthier. If possible, consume the leaves the same day you purchase them. After just two days' storage in the refrigerator, spinach loses a third of its original vitamin C content.
