Benefits of Turnips
Turnip greens are high in fiber which helps support the bodys digestive system. Some research suggests that glucosinolates may also help the stomach process bacteria like Helicobacter pylori. This root vegetable usually sold bunched or topped. In the markets look for fresh roots that are small, firm, round and impart delicate sweet flavor. Avoid larger as well as over matured roots as they are woody in textured and excess in fiber that makes dishes unappetizing.
