storage tips

Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin K and potassium, with higher concentrations of vitamin A found in darker green lettuces. It also provides some dietary fiber (concentrated in the spine and ribs), carbohydrates, protein and a small amount of fat. Most types also provide some vitamin C, calcium, iron and copper, with vitamins and minerals largely found in the leaf. They also contain a good amount of Folate.

 

Washed fresh lettuce can be stored in the crisper or vegetable department of your fridge.

To gain enhanced freshness, try wrapping your lettuce with damp paper towels.

Lettuce should not be stored in direct sunlight or at room temperature for very long periods of time to prevent spoilage.
