From Leaf to Root – Holistic Use of Vegetables

Many vegetables including sweet corn, artichokes, potato and cabbage (e.g. Brussels sprouts) are not holistically used in food production although they are safe to consume (without or with further processing). In some cases, more than 50% of the nutritional valuable material is left in the fields or not further valorized.
