Colour is king: why brown and white foods are important

Aug 26, 2020 15:39 IST

While focussing on adding all the colours of the rainbow to your diet, don’t forget to include white and brown foods, both of which also offer a cornucopia of benefits for the body. These foods, examples of which are onions, garlic and radish, contain high levels of antioxidant flavonoids like quercetin and kaempferol as well as lots of fibre and potassium. They are excellent for boosting immunity and improving the health of your digestive tract. Nutrients found in white fruits and veggies have also been known to minimize the risk of colon, prostate and breast cancer. Some other white and brown foods that you must include in your diet are dates, ginger, cauliflower, mushrooms and potatoes! These foods are also good for a healthy heart as they contain potassium, which lowers blood pressure levels and the risk of stroke.
