Health & Nutrition Notes for Bibb Lettuce

I've heard people say numerous times that lettuce doesn't hold any nutritional values - and fact is, it certainly does.

One large leaf contains a splash of protein and dietary fiber content. It also holds 5 milligrams of both phosphorus and calcium along with a tab of iron, zinc and magnesium.

As with almost all natural food sources, it contains a bit of natural fatty acid content along with sodium, but the amounts are slight.

For one leaf, the potassium content is excellent at 36 milligrams.

This species of lettuce can be enjoyed as a natural wrap as it makes a nice substitute for bread and other higher calorie holders for filling. Bibb lettuce is an exceptional wrapping choice for Asian food.
