Nutrition In Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a great vegetable because it is high in fiber, which makes it very filling. Fiber is also known to be great for heart health and the health of your colon. Cauliflower is also a very low calorie food, with only 25 calories per serving. One serving of cauliflower is about 1 cup or 100 grams. One head of cauliflower, depending on how big it is, has 4 to 6 servings. This means even you eat an entire cauliflower, it is still only 100 to 150 calories! One serving of cauliflower has 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein to help keep you full. It has no fat and has 5 grams of carbohydrates per serving.

Cauliflower also is rich in Vitamin C and B vitamins. It also has antioxidants and phytonutrients which may both be protective against cancer. The lesser known benefits of cauliflower include the amount of choline it has. Your body needs choline to help with memory, mood and muscle control. Some choline is made by your liver, but most of the required daily choline comes from your diet.
