Parsnips are a great addition to your diet. They are tap roots and grow underground in direct contact with the earth. When this is a rich, well balanced organic soil the result is they are packed full of nutrients.
Although not so well known in Asia, these root vegetables have a very beneficial nutritional profile. They are rich in vitamin C (11% RDA), manganese (10% RDA) and folate (B9 11% RDA). Folate in particular is important for pregnant women and developing babies as well as for general cardiovascular health.
