The Radish Daikon belongs to the family of Cruciferae. The seed is round-shaped,
light brown coloured: each gram contains about 100 seeds. Radish Daikon sprouts
are ready in 5/6 days.
Radish Daikon sprouts have a high content of nutritive principles such as vitamins
(A, B1, B2, C and PP) and minerals (Iron, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium
and Phosphorus), which help strengthen muscular tissues, develop the sight, have
antiseptic power and stimulate the secretion of gastric juices, improving the
digestive process as well as our organism's overall defences.
Radish Daikon sprouts can be eaten alone or together with hors d'oeuvres, salads
and vegetables dishes. Their slightly hot taste makes them suitable for spicing up
salads, fish and meat, both cooked and raw.
