The romanesco is not only one of the most beautiful vegetables that exist but it is a rich source of vitamin C and fiber. Its contribution to a healthy diet is undoubted, since it contains a greater richness in vitamins and minerals than other similar vegetables such as cabbages, cauliflower or cabbage. It stands out for its great richness in vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, phosphorus, folic acid, iron and potassium.
