Nutrition

Red cabbage is a good source of vitamin C, a source of dietary fibre, vitamin A, vitamin B6, and contains potassium.

There are differences between varieties; for example, red cabbage is much higher in vitamin C and B6 compared to green.

Like other members of the brassica family, cabbages contain many phytonutrients, particularly glucosinolates, carotenoids and phenolic compounds.
