Nutritional values

In Thailand, the green vegetable is known as "Pak Bung" and is appreciated cooked and fried. Its main advantages are its low calorie content and a relatively high protein content.

Water spinach is eaten with stump and stem - so wash thoroughly. When you buy spinach, make sure that the leaves and stalks are green and plump.
