Common name: Spitz CABBAGE
Scientific name: Brasica Oleracea Silvestris var. Capitata
Product Features: Two types of Chinese cabbages are generally consumed. One is the ‘pe-tsai’ variety, forming elongated buds similar to lettuce, while the ‘pak-choi’ variety has loose leaves, similar to a chard. Chinese cabbages are consumed raw, mainly in salads, or cooked in soups, stews, with meat and beans. They are significant sources of vitamins and minerals. They are also low in calories and rich in fibre, so they are suitable for low-calorie diets.
