Radicchio salad has a fairly dense head and purple leaves with white veins and a base (calorizer). The taste of radicchio is spicy and bitter.
Radicchio salad contains a sufficient amount of vitamins E, A, K, B1, B2, B5, B9, PP and ascorbic acid, as well as minerals such as selenium, magnesium, iron, sodium, manganese, copper, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and calcium. It perfectly cleanses the blood, and also has a very beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. It also contains a lot of oxidants necessary for the human body. Eating lettuce leaves improves the functioning of the urinary system, liver and gallbladder, stimulates hematopoiesis and strengthens the immune system (which is especially important in winter and autumn).
