FIRST OF OCTOBER
Although they have a low energy content, asparagus contain large amount of nutrients (phosphorus, potassium, folic acid as well as vitamins C, B and D) and a high antioxidant power, making of asparagus a very complete food from a nutritional perspective.
Not only this, but asparagus also present a good diuretic value, perfect for eliminating toxins from our organism, as well as being a source of fiber which favors a correct intestinal transit.
The great difference in temperature between day and night in the Vegas de Granada in Spain (where we include the province of Granada, primarily with a bigger production, but also Malaga, Seville, Cadiz, Jaen, Cordoba, Guadalajara and Extremadura) makes the organoleptic characteristics of the green asparagus of Spain so special, with a differential flavor that combines sweetness and a slight bitterness, intense aroma and fleshy and firm texture.
Grilled, scrambled, boiled… asparagus are a great, versatile product, best cooked when they remain tender and crunchy!
