Cauliflower Nutrition Guide

Sometimes mistakenly referred to as the poor cousin of broccoli, cauliflower has so much going for it when it comes to nutrition.

Gut Health

Cauliflower or the 'Flower Cabbage' contains loads of fibre. Fibre is essential to prevent constipation and keep our digestive tracts healthy. Further research has shown fibre plays a role in regulating our immune systems and helps to prevent inflammation in the gut.


If you're expecting a little one, Cauliflower needs to be a staple ingredient on your shopping list each week. The research shows that Folate (a B group vitamin which is found in high amounts in cauliflower) is essential for the growth and development of healthy cells. Consuming adequate folate also reduces the risk of neural tube birth defects such as Spina bifida.


Phosphorus plays a vital role in how our bodies make use of both carbohydrates and fats. It is building block of bone formation and health, and plays a particularly important function in ensuring that our bodies can make the protein required for the growth, maintenance and repair of tissue and cells. Cauli is naturally high in phosphorus!

Vitamin B6

All of the B Vitamins are essential to health, and B6 is particularly important for keeping the nervous system regulated and the immune system healthy, which has rarely been as vital as it is in this day and age!

Vitamin C

Ditch the vitamin C tablets this winter and get this powerful vitamin direct for the source. Cauliflower is rich in Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant and immune booster, helping to fight off common virus causing the flu. Vitamin C also assists your bodies to absorb iron from iron rich plant-based foods (e.g. beans, chickpeas and lentils). This is particularly important for non-meat eaters, as including vegetables high in vitamin C with your meal can help your body absorb more iron.

Fun Fact

Did you know cauliflowers can be purple? This is due to the presence of antioxidants similar to those found in red wine and red cabbage!
