Spinach Knowledge

  • Spinach belongs to the chenopodiaceae family (also known as goosefoot), a family of nutritional powerhouses including beets, chard and quinoa. It shares a similar taste profile with these two other vegetables; the bitterness of beet greens and the slightly salty flavour of chard.
  • Spinach is available all year round but is in season during the spring (March – June)
  • High in iron
  • Three types of fresh spinach are widely available: Savoy, flat-leaf, and baby. Baby spinach is harvested before its mature, so the flavor and texture is much more delicate
  • It should be stored loosely packed in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge where it will keep for about four days.
  • Don’t wash spinach before storing since the moisture will cause it to spoil
