Nutritional value in 100 g of alabaster

In the previous recipe for stuffed alabash with mushrooms and minced meat, we told you about the meaning of the name of the vegetable and what it tastes like. Here we will pay attention to the energy value in 100 g of the raw product:

  • Carbohydrates – 6 grams, of which 3.6 g of fiber and 3 g of sugar
  • Fat – 0 g
  • Protein – 2 g
  • Vitamin C – 62 mg
  • Vitamin E – 0.42 mg

Alabash contains a wide range of antioxidants, such as vitamin C, anthocyanins, isothiocyanates and glucosinolates. These plant compounds protect cells from free radical damage, which can otherwise increase the risk of various diseases.

It is also a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. The former are water-soluble and help maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

On the other hand, insoluble fiber is not broken down in the gut, helping to improve digestion.
