Benefits of Fiddlehead Fern

Day 33 of 2021 -   Pinoy Salad para sa pananghalian. Pako (edible fern) binili sa Mt. Manabu; itlog na maalat, order kay Sir Joseph; ang kamatis, sibuyas at talong mula sa aming munting palengke.

Pako is one of the fern vegetables that Filipinos love to eat. This vegetable which has a scientific name of Athyrium esculentum, also known as fiddlehead fern or vegetable fern in, is usually eaten as salad or as a side dish to a main viand.

Nutritionally speaking, fiddleheads contain about 22 calories, 3 grams of carbohydrates, 2.8 grams of protein and 0.2 grams of fat per half cup serving. They owe their beta-carotene content to their deep green color. Fiddleheads also provide a good amount of vitamin C, niacin and potassium.
