Red Leaf Lettuce

Organic<br />Red Leaf Lettuce
Vitamins Aplenty

The crisp, curly leaves of red leaf lettuce store high concentrations of vitamin A and beta-carotene, which have anti-oxidant properties and contribute to healthy eyes and skin. Leaves also provide a good source of folate, shown to prevent birth defects, vitamins C and K, and essential minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Leaf lettuces are fat-, saturated fat- and cholesterol-free and low in sodium and calories.

Handling Tips
Wash before storing

Choose bright, crisp leaf lettuces without discolorations. After purchase, remove any discolored outside leaves, remove core and rinse leaves well with cold water. Pat dry and wrap in paper towels and a plastic bag before storing in the refrigerator crisper up to one week. Store separately from apples, pears and bananas, which release a ripening agent that shortens lettuce's usable span.
