The benefits of turnips
Like cabbage, turnips are part of the family of cruciferous vegetables. They are often associated with swede, though they do not belong to the same species. The former has fairly white flesh, while the latter has yellow flesh. With a high water content, they have one of the lowest energy intakes in vegetables. This explains why they often appear in diets.
Turnips are rich in vitamin C. They also contain vitamin B, which is essential to ensure the nervous system develops properly, especially the baby’s one.
