Black Eggplant
Product in Italy

The eggplant is a plant of the Solanaceae family that is very rich in minerals and antioxidants. Eggplants are very rich in minerals, in particular potassium, phosphorus and magnesium; they are therefore a useful aid during the summer, when we tend to lose minerals, especially potassium, through sweating. They also contain a good amount of vitamins, in particular vitamin A, group B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K and vitamin J.

Eggplants are very rich in water and, for this reason, they can be considered a purifying food, useful in case of urinary retention. They are low in calories and rather rich in fibre; they are therefore also useful in the case of slimming diets and to combat constipation. Furthermore, aubergines stimulate the production of bile and help keep blood cholesterol levels under control. Like all purple vegetables, aubergines are very rich in antioxidants.
