“Never judge the book by its cover.” Lettuces might look the same but it’s the inside that counts!
The difference in nutritional values in the test results between Natufia lettuce and pot lettuce from the shop were huge:
Vitamin C level: 400 % higher in Natufia lettuce
Beta carotene level: 330 % higher in Natufia lettuce
Vitamin K level: 200 % higher in Natufia lettuce
Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) grown in Natufia Kitchen Garden has higher vitamin levels than lettuce that is sold in a pot in grocery stores according to tests made by 3rd party’s accredited food laboratory.
On the pic you can see our botanist holding two lettuces. On the left is lettuce bought from local grocery store and on the right lettuce grown in Natufia Kitchen Garden.
How did we achieve this?
Lettuces and other plants growing in our Natufia Kitchen Garden have the optimum growing conditions till the actual point of consumption. Special lighting of the Natufia Kitchen Garden fully replicates sunlight spectrum and offers perfect conditions with programmable daylight cycles. In addition to perfect light condition, water and balanced nutrients play an important role in plants growth.
Another advantage is that you may take as much leaves as needed for the dish and the rest of the plant keeps happily growing.
Lettuce from grocery store has been harvested, transported, packed and stacked and kept in storage. The time you buy them, they have already been "starving" for longer time and are far from fresh.
Saying “Straight from field to plate.” couldn’t be more accurate with Natufia.
Why does it matter?
Most importantly, you are able to prepare your salad from vitamin rich, and nutritious organic lettuce.
Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients. It is a vitamin and a powerful antioxidant. It is essential for the growth and repair of all body tissues. It also plays an important role for example in formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system and wound healing.
Beta carotene converts in the body into vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for good vision and eye health, as well as for a strengthening the immune system. It also helps to maintain healthy skin.
Vitamin K is an important factor in bone and heart health as well as in wound healing. It basically helps to keep calcium in the bones and out of the arteries.
As a result, the study shows that even if the lettuces sold in a pot looks nice, it still has lost the peak of its nutritious values.
