Crisp and light, the iceberg lettuce is low in calories and high in water content. Although it contains less nutrients than other greens, iceberg lettuce still delivers plenty of health benefits, from aiding in weight loss to preventing blood clots. It’s an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as B vitamins. And studies show that its folate content may also help prevent certain cancers, heart diseases, and stroke.

Selection Process

Select iceberg lettuce that has fresh, crisp leaves and avoid those that are slimy or wilted. Wash thoroughly before using.
