Rhubarb

Hot rhubarb is hot

Rhubarb (Rheum rhapontigen) may not be as fashionable around kitchen tables as it once was but it still contains a range of healthy chemicals. The root in particular is rich in anthraquinones that can help relieve a case of constipation. The stems also contain lots of anthocyanins, the powerful antioxidants that you find in grapes and beetroot. This new study wanted to establish how different cooking methods affected the levels of these ingredients in your rhubarb. They found that baking rhubarb for twenty minutes dramatically increases levels of anthocyanins. The researchers point out that anthocyanins have been shown to selectively kill cancer cells and that rhubarb anthocyanins could help develop less toxic treatments for diseases like leukaemia. They also found that anthraquinones were reduced by long baking. For antioxidant bang for your buck though, bring on the rhubarb crumble, baked rhubarb is the hot item on the menu.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
