Part of the beet family, this Bright Lights Swiss Chard is a show-stopper for it’s vibrant looks. The stalks of the chard have a crisp, delicate, celery-like flavour. The leaves are often used like replace spinach, and the stems can be used in replace of asparagus in recipes.
Good to know:
Chard contains Betalian. Betalin pigments have been known to support activity within the body’s detoxification process, activating and processing unwanted toxic substances. Betalians are not heat-stable, though, so longer cooking times can decrease their presence.
