Organic Cai Xin – SG
The flowering shoots and younger leaves of chye sim are used in salads or stir-fried, lightly boiled or steamed and added to meat.
Rich in carotene (pro-vitamin A), calcium and dietary fibre, it also supplies potassium and folic acid, high in vitamin K which can be beneficial in the prevention of such diseases as osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer.
Fresh chye sim has many vital B-complex vitamins such as pyridoxine (vitamin B6), riboflavin, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine, and thiamin (vitamin B-1). These vitamins are essential in the sense that our body requires them from external sources to replenish.
Chye sim is an excellent source of water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin-C (ascorbic acid). 100 g provides 45 mg or 75 % of daily requirements of vitamin C.
Regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin C help the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.
