Vegetables – Rhubarb


Botanically, rhubarb is a vegetable (it's related to sorrel and dock) but its thick, fleshy stalks are treated as a fruit, despite their tart flavour.

Everyone knows if you eat rhubarb you need to add a little sugar, but there is another way to sweeten the deal.

Rhubarb is one of the highest calcium containing vegetables; however, calcium absorption may be inhibited by the presence of oxalic acid which is also found in rhubarb.  Cooking can reduce the effect of oxalic acid.  

Rhubarb is a good source of vitamin C and contains dietary fibre and potassium at significant levels
