Endive


Overview of Endive Nutrition

Scientific Name: Cichorium endivia


Order: Asterales


Family: Asteraceae


Endive (Cichorium endivia) is in the Asteraceae, a large plant family that includes dandelions and sunflowers. Although it may have originated from Egypt, it is widely cultivated in Europe. It is an important ingredient in various European dishes and salads. Endives can be served as an appetizer as well. Raw endives are bitter and crisp, but after roasting, this leafy vegetable has a sweet and nutty flavor. Endives contain pantothenic acid (18% daily value [DV]). This vitamin plays a role in the metabolism of cholesterol and fatty acids. It also supports proper hormone metabolism. In addition to pantothenic acid, endives are rich in vitamin K (193% DV). Vitamin K is involved in bone health and normal blood clotting. Folate (36% DV) is also present in endive. This B-vitamin prevents neural tube defects in a developing fetus. Endives also contain manganese (18% DV). Reported as an antioxidant, this mineral is necessary for bone health. This mineral may also be crucial for cellular respiration and glucose metabolism.
