Kale is a highly nutritious vegetable known for its many phytochemicals, which are anti-inflammatory. It is one of the best sources of Vitamin K, which helps regulate the body’s inflammatory process, as well as beta-carotene. It is also a great source for Vitamin C and manganese, which is important for skin health.
However, kale also contains goitrogens, which inhibit thyroid function but which are mostly removed with cooking. We steam our kale before dehydration to remove these goitrogens. More than four pounds of kale are contained in this 150-gram jar. The varieties in our powder include Red Russian, Scarlet, Lacinato, Dwarf Siberian and Toscano.
The flavor is bright and grassy. When folded into most other foods, it takes on the flavor of those foods, which makes it ideal for picky vegetable eaters. To use, sprinkle on salads, eggs, rice, quinoa, buttered popcorn, steamed or roasted vegetables, fish or chicken. Add to smoothies, soups, stews, pasta, spaghetti sauce – really, anything you enjoy eating! Our favorite way to use Kale Powder is sprinkled on scrambled or over-easy eggs in the morning.
