- Vegetables are important parts of a healthy diet. No single vegetable provides all of the nutrient. They can lower blood pressure and reduce risk of heart disease. They prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems. They have a positive effect upon blood sugar which can help keep appetite in check
- Vegetables contain indigestible fiber, which absorbs water and expands as it passes through the digestive system. They may be raw or cooked; fresh, frozen, canned, or dried/dehydrated; and may be whole, cut-up, or mashed.
- We regularly export Potatoes and Small Onion varieties.
- Potatoes are often thought of as a comfort food to be prepared by the right way — without butter, cheese or sour cream. Potatoes are low calorie, with a medium-sized baked potato containing only about 110 calories. They are a good source of vitamins C and B6, manganese, phosphorus, niacin and pantothenic acid.
- Cabbage heads generally range from 0.5 to 4 kilograms, and can be green, purple and white. It is a multi-layered vegetable, which is prone to several nutrient deficiencies, as well as to multiple pests, and bacterial and fungal diseases. Cabbages are prepared in many different ways for eating. They can be pickled, fermented for dishes such as sauerkraut, steamed, stewed, sautéed, braised, or eaten raw. Cabbage is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C and dietary fiber. Contaminated cabbage has been linked to cases of food-borne illness in humans.
- Larger varieties of shallot (widely called as Small Onions) are widely used in curries and different types of sambar, a lentil-based dish. Shallots pickled in red vinegar are common in many Indian restaurants, served along with sauces and papad on the condiments tray. Then are also used as a home remedy for sore throats, mixed with jaggery or sugar. They add distinct flavour and prevent curry from getting black which is a common problem with onions.
