Science Names This Food The Healthiest In The World

Researchers from William Paterson University crown watercress as the ultimate superfood, providing 100% of daily nutrients in just 100 grams.

Despite being underutilised, watercress is affordable and available year-round, costing about 2 euros per bunch in local markets.

Watercress is versatile in the kitchen, perfect raw in salads, quiches, or atop eggs, and can be sautéed, fried, or blended into soups.

A 100-gram serving of watercress packs a perfect 100 in nutrient density, rich in potassium, fibre, protein, calcium, iron, and various vitamins.

Grown predominantly in France, watercress is a culinary chameleon, enhancing the flavour of any dish or sauce it's added to.

Watercress contains more vitamin C than an orange or lemon, making it an excellent choice for boosting immunity and overall health.

Its nutrient profile includes thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and vitamins A, B6, B12, D, E, and K, making it a powerhouse of nutrition.

Incorporating watercress into your diet can be a simple yet effective way to ensure you're meeting your daily nutrient needs and enjoying delicious meals.
