Nutritional Content: Eggplant

Eggplant is a food that contains small concentrations of minerals important in human nutrition such as Phosphorus, Magnesium and Potassium, it also contains Vitamin B9, Vitamin E and Vitamin K. Due to the varied but low concentration of nutrients it has, it is recommended to consume it accompanied by other foods

To choose them in the market we recommend you check the fruits very well to make sure they do not have holes; which are usually caused by agricultural pests that lay their eggs in the fruit.

The nutritional table that we present below is based on the concentration of nutrients in 100 grams of raw Eggplant; take into account that depending on the way you prepare it (cooked, steamed, roasted, etc.) the concentration of vitamins and minerals will decrease to a lesser or greater extent.

Recommended Daily Amount: The values ​​that appear in this Nutritional Table as "Recommended Daily Allowance" are values ​​to guide people a little about what amounts to consume of each nutrient. It should also be taken into account that these recommendations are only valid for adults and healthy people.

We also want to emphasize that the organism of each individual is different and that the most accurate way to know how much of each nutrient each person requires is through an extensive evaluation carried out by a Nutritional Area Professional.

Energy: The exact amount of calories (Kcal) a person should consume daily varies according to their weight, sex, age and physical activities. The standard measure used by the World Health Organization (WHO) to guide consumption of Kcal is 2000 Kcal per day.

Proteins: Determining the daily amount of Proteins that is recommended for Women and Men depends on the amount of daily calories consumed and the physical activities performed. 1 gram of Protein per kilogram of weight is a measure that can be taken as a standard for sedentary people.

Glucids (Carbohydrates): The daily amount of carbohydrates is usually determined according to the calorie intake, metabolism and physical activities that are performed. The range of values ​​we offer here as "Recommended Daily Allowance" is to provide some guidance on the consumption of Glucids (Carbohydrates). In this sense, if you consume about 2000 Kcal per day, it is recommended to consume about 250 g of Carbohydrates.

Sugars: When we talk about Sugars we mean the monosaccharides and disaccharides that are the sugars naturally present in food and those that are present in the Sucrose (Common Sugar).

Lipids (Fats): Total Lipids represent the total amount of all fats in food. The Recommended Daily Allowance to consume for healthy adults varies according to their caloric intake.

Sodium: Take into account that when we talk about Sodium we do not refer to Salt. 1 gram of Salt contains 400 milligrams of Sodium.
