Spinach is packed with powerful nutrients. In fact, 1 cup of raw spinach is an excellent source of vitamins A and K. And, like other leafy greens, spinach also has folate, iron, fiber, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C.

Here are tips on getting the most nutritional value out of spinach.

  • Unwashed spinach should be packed loosely in a plastic bag and placed in the refrigerator crisper where it will remain fresh and retain its nutrient content for about four days.
  • Frozen spinach retains more of its nutrients because it is flash-frozen.
  • Wash spinach just before serving.
