Turnip, Brassica rapa / Cruciferae (Brassicaceae)
Benefits for the health
Turnip is a root that stores substances, containing a small amount of sugars and being an excellent source of fibre, half of which is soluble. This helps to maintain low levels of sugar and cholesterol. The other half is insoluble, favouring the activity of the alimentary canal. It has been demonstrated that the consumption of fibre helps to protect against disorders of the alimentary canal, among which we find intestine cancer.
