Rhubarb Facts


Rhubarb is 95% water and is a source of potassium, as well as being low in sodium. It is good for your digestive system, and can be taken for the treatment of chronic constipation, diarrhea, liver and gall bladder complaints, haemorrhoids, menstrual problems and skin eruptions.
It is very important to always remember that the leaves are poisonous, so always chop them off and throw them away. Rhubarb's stalks are abundant with vitamin C, dietary fiber and calcium.
One cup of chopped up rhubarb contains around 25 calories.

The stalks taste very sour due to their high levels of acidity but when cooked with sugar taste amazing!

Rhubarb creams can also be used in the treatment of burns!
