The heart of every salad

Earthbound Farm Organic Heirloom Lettuces are an excellent source of vitamin A, which plays a role in the maintenance of healthy eyes and skin; and a good source of vitamin C, which plays a role in wound healing, skin health and supporting a healthy immune system.

The vitamin C in this leafy lettuce mix also has antioxidant properties that, as part of a healthy diet, may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases. And vitamin C can help your body better absorb plant-based iron. Try tossing up a salad with a variety of lettuces, like heirloom leaves, frisee and baby romaine — it’s a tasty way to maximize your nutrient intake! 

Choosing organically grown heirloom lettuce is a smart and effective way to reduce exposure to pesticide residues, as the Environmental Working Group currently ranks conventionally grown lettuce #14 on their "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce," a list of vegetables most commonly found with pesticide residues.
