Aubergine, Solanum melongena / Solanaceae
Benefits for the health
The most important element found in aubergines is fibre (2 g/100 g of aubergines), half of which is soluble and therefore useful to maintain the levels of cholesterol low. The other half is cellulous, needed to maintain the functioning of the intestine. Other nutrients occurring in aubergines are, to a less extent, carotene and potassium. Aubergines are poor in fat and sodium, which intensifies their protective effect against high blood pressure.
