Carbohydrate

Most plant carbohydrate is in the fibre which is excluded during the production process. The small amount remaining is mostly complex sugars and starches with only 0.8% simple sugars (glucose).

Fat

The omega 3 series (linolenic acids) and omega 6 series (linoleic acids) make up 30% and 10% respectively of total fatty acids. This is considered to be a good balance.

Vitamins

Leafcurd is a major source of vitamin A in the safe form of beta carotene. It also contains significant quantities of vitamins E, K and B9 (folic acid) as well as chlorophylls (0.1%) which give it its characteristic green colour and which some consider its most important nutritional characteristic.

Minerals

Leafcurd is a major source of iron and calcium, two of our most needed minerals.
