The firm heads of white cabbage are formed from light yellowish-green to deep green leaves, with the outer leaves often covered in a waxy layer. White cabbage’s status as one of the most popular German vegetables is attributed to its variety of healthy ingredients: potassium and iron, as well as Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K, which is responsible for blood clotting. Additionally, white cabbage contains mustard oils, which belong to the group of secondary plant substances.
White cabbage can be stored in the refrigerator for several days without any issues. An opened head should be covered with plastic wrap when storing.
