Spotlight….Asparagus

Healthy Fact
The asparagus contains significant amounts of vitamin C and beta-carotene-antioxidents which assist in keeping the immune system functioning and contribute to the body’s general well-being. being low in calories and containing no fat or cholesterol, the asparagus is an ideal vegetable to include in a weight loss, heart friendly diet.

Did You Know?
Asparagus is considered a difficult food to pair with wine – it contains methyl mercaptan, a sulphur compound, which tends to give wine a vegetal or metallic taste. Try pairing asparagus with cool-climate wines that have pronounced herbal flavours to counteract this.
