Health Benefits of Rutabagas

rutabagaRutabagas are excellent sources of potassium, fiber and vitamin B6; and they support bone health by providing your body with both calcium and magnesium. The rutabaga’s most significant nutrient is vitamin C. In fact, 53% of your daily recommended value of vitamin C can be found in just one cup of rutabagas.*

When purchasing rutabagas, look for firm, smooth picks. The smaller the rutabaga, the sweeter it is. Boil, bake or roast them (just as you would a potato) for a healthy vegetable side for lunch or dinner.
