Nutritional Benefits: 

Delicious & nutritious

Earthbound Farm's Spring Mix is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron, which is essential for healthy red blood cells and plays a role in overall energy levels.

Many of the lettuces that make up this blend contain an antioxidant called beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body, when needed. Within the context of a healthy diet, this antioxidant may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

The vitamin C found in this salad mix plays a role in wound healing, skin health and supporting a healthy immune system; and acts as an antioxidant, too.
 

Why choose organic spring mix?

Lettuce is high on the Environmental Working Group's "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce," a list of items that have been shown to carry the most pesticide residues when cultivated conventionally. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead.

Choose Earthbound Farm certified organic spring mix to be sure it’s been grown without synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that safeguard the environment. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic greens tastes better, too!

WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for lettuce and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects.
