CELERY

Served as an appetizer or accompaniment. K. Zafeiropoulos - A. Tomaras Industrial and Commercial S.A. sells finely chopped celery, preserved in brine.
It stays crunchy, ideal to accompany meat dishes.
Celery is rich in vitamins B1, C and K, calcium and folic acid. In addition, it contains flavonoids (responsible for its characteristic scent), which attack free radicals, thus protecting our body from various forms of cancer and contributing to the proper functioning of the heart.

Both vitamin C and flavonoids contained in celery enhance the functioning of the immune system. According to studies, celery has medicinal properties against kidney and bladder diseases (thanks to its diuretic action), as well as joint disorders.

As a matter of fact, according to a study carried out in the US, a chemical substance contained in celery (luteolin) may work as a shield against brain diseases.
