What is Kale?
Kale is a member of the genus brassica, making it related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage. Also known as leaf cabbage, kale is a group of vegetables known for their green or purple leaves. Unlike headed cabbage, kale’s central leaves do not form a head. Some varieties of kale can reach up to six or seven feet, but the varieties that are best for consumption are compact and symmetrical.
Ancestors of the modern-day kale plant have been cultivated dating back to the early Greek and Roman civilizations. Through the Middle Ages, kale was one of the most common green vegetables in Europe. Kale cultivation saw a resurgence during the Second World War in the United Kingdom because it is easy to grow, even in the winter, and supplemented important nutrients that would have otherwise been lacking during wartime rationing.
Today, kale is prized for its rich nutritional profile and is used all over the world in various culinary practices.
Kale supplements are an ideal alternative for those that want to enjoy the rich nutritional benefits of kale but don’t enjoy the taste of the leafy vegetable. Piping Rock kale supplements are available in easy to swallow quick release capsules for optimal absorption.
