benefits of eating artichokes
Artichokes are called as vegetable, served either hot or cold; the globe artichokes are both a delicacy and a low calorie, nutritious vegetable. Actually globe artichokes are the flower bud of a large, thistle like plant, with only a few edible portions, the heart and the tender, fleshy portion at the best of the tough outer leaves. To prepare fresh artichokes, the thorny top and leaf tips are trimmed away, and the vegetable is then boiled, steamed or baked. Artichokes can be served in many ways, but one of the most popular is to dip the edible portion of the leaves in a sauce. It’s this sauce that determines whether an artichoke is a healthful treat or a high calorie indulgence. High fat sauces like Hollandaise and melted butter are traditional favorites a more healthful choice is lemons juice with a dash of olives oil.
A large artichoke provides 15% of the daily requirements of folate and vitamin C, 300 mg of potassium and about 2g of fiber. Artichokes contain cynarin, a chemical said to improve liver function and possibly lower blood cholesterol, but these claims are unproven, also lacking proof are claims that artichokes lower blood sugar and stimulate bile flow. Artichokes are members of the sunflower, or compositae, family. People allergic to ragweed pollen may react to artichokes, because of cross reacting antigens that respond to both allergens.
