Why You Can Feel Good About Eating Artichokes.

Here’s why you can feel good about eating artichokes:

• Fiber
One medium artichoke has a whopping 6 grams of dietary fiber – that’s a quarter of the recommended daily amount – and more fiber than in one whole cup of prunes! Yet an artichoke has only 60 calories.

• Protein
Artichokes contain 4 grams of protein – a significant amount for a vegetable.

• Inulin
Artichokes contain a fiber known as inulin. Inulin is one of the most available and the more promising prebiotics in the food supply; it’s also the preferred form of prebiotic used in animal and human research studies.1

• Antioxidants.
Artichokes rank number one over all vegetables in term of antioxidant count, according to research conducted by the US Department of Agriculture.
