Organic Daikon Radish 50g
SAR24.00

Daikon (Raphanus sativus ) is a type of white, winter radish that grows primarily in Southeast and East Asia. It is characterized by large, rapidly growing leaves and a long, white root. It is technically considered a cruciferous vegetable and, therefore, has many of the same benefits in its leaves. It is also praised for the nutrient content of its root, which is commonly pickled and eaten as a vegetable in Japan, China, and other Asian countries as part of their cuisine. Daikon is also commonly used in diced form as an ingredient in soups, salads, curries, rice dishes, and various condiments, while the leaves are often consumed as a typical green salad vegetable. The juice is most commonly marketed as a healthy beverage for a wide range of conditions. The impressive qualities of daikon, including its low food energy levels and high nutrient content, make it a highly sought after ingredient in many dishes.
