Country Magic Kale is the leader in our cooking greens selection. It is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet (high in nutrients and low in calories). Kale has evolved over the past few years from the traditional green to include new offerings of red and black kale. Each of these varieties have their own unique flavour and uses.
We maintain uniform soil moisture for tender growth and maximum use of soil nutrients. Country Magic kale is grown on raised plastic beds which allows for better drainage, better airflow and weed control. Here at Country Magic we continue to research and try different varieties of kale to ensure that we are providing the highest possible quality product that is nutritious and delicious for our customers.
Country Magic Kale should be kept between 1°C to 3°C until consumed. Kale can be stored for up two weeks because it is known as a hardy winter vegetable. Avoid storing kale with produce such as apples and tomatoes because kale is ethylene sensitive.
Kale has soared in popularity because of its vast array of health benefits. The list of vitamins and minerals that kale contains is long! Kale is an excellent source of fibre and important vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K, as well as folate. It is also a source of vitamin B6, Vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, niacin, riboflavin and thiamin. Kale can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you cook it by steaming. Kale’s risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Like other greens, kale contains carotenoids which play an important role in eye health.
Black kale (Lacinato kale, dinosaur kale, Tuscan kale, Cavolo nero) is rich in glucosinolates which may help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. It is among the most antioxidant rich foods on earth. It is slightly sweeter than regular (green) kale. Red kale is more tender than some other varieties and one of the sweetest types of kale.
