Benefits of White and Brown Foods

White and Brown Food Benefits

White and brown fruits and vegetables are high in potassium, fiber, beta-glucans, lignans, and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). These nutrients are good for heart health, cancer prevention, immunity boosts, digestive tract health, and metabolism.

Potassium is used to control the electrical activity of the heart and muscles and promotes heart health. Fiber is important for a healthy digestive tract. Nutrients like beta-glucans, lignans, and ECGC activate the natural B and T cells killer which reduces the risk of colon and prostate cancer. 

Incorporate more white and brown foods into your diet by eating:

  • Cauliflower
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Turnips
  • Parsnips
  • Potatoes
