Traditionally kale was being grown to feed livestock, especially in California. Whilst planning a collapse in meat production (YEAH!), farmers and marketers saw an opportunity to present kale as a superfood to a growing community of high-income healthy consumers.
1️⃣ Kale indeed is healthy and filled with Vitamin K
2️⃣ But check nutrition facts for other collard greens and you’ll see that spinach actually is healthier!
My advice: don’t buy expensive and fashionable veggies before comparing nutrition facts on food databases (all open and easy to find on Google) like CoFid (UK), USDA (US), INFOODS (France), Composition Database (Switzerland)…
