  • microelement of calcium, necessary for building bone tissue of the body;

  • is a zinc mineral required for the normal functioning of the body;
  • nicotinic acid, which promotes stress resistance;
  • folic acid;
  • mustard oil.

Also, the root crop contains a large amount of fiber, purine bases, starch and a small amount of other useful microelements and vitamins.

The uniqueness of rutabaga is that the calcium, which is part of its composition, is completely absorbed by the human body due to the presence of mustard oils in it. And ascorbic acid is retained in the root crop even with heat treatment and long-term storage.

For example, after an hour of cooking, the amount of vitamin C in a trouser falls just 14%.When cooking on steam or in the oven this vitamin is stored completely. This effect scientists explain the same presence in the root vegetable mustard oils.

Procurement and storage of

At what time should I clean the trousers? The fact is that if the harvest is too early in the trouser, there is too little mustard oil that determines its useful properties. And when you are late - the flesh becomes stiff and fibrous. For this reason, it is best to start the harvesting in late September.

Digging out of the ground is followed by a pitchfork. Damaged root crops should be postponed for immediate use. The rest - cleaned from the ground, dried and stored in a cellar or a cool basement, scattered on shelves.

It is important to avoid damp when storing. In dry form, the rutabaga can be stored for up to three years.

If desired, the trout can be marinated, as well as making preparations for the winter in the form of salads, using recipes similar to the preparation of cucumbers. It should be noted that the beneficial properties of root vegetables are significantly reduced. For curative and preventive purposes, it is necessary to eat a freshly baked or cooked steamed pair.
