the king of vegetables
packed with virtue
Asparagus Asparagus are tender, succulent spring vegetables, with an abundance of beneficial properties. White asparagus, which germinates below the soil surface (thus in the absence of light) has a delicate flavour. Green asparagus on the other hand germinates in the sunlight but has a distinct flavour and its buds are sweet in taste. It is the only asparagus that does not require peeling.

Varieties – Marketing areas and periods
Asparagus are a real treasure trove of beneficial nutrients including vegetable fibres, folic acid and vitamins, in parti-cular Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. They also have an interesting combination of mineral salts, amongst which it is worth mentioning chrome, a mineral that helps to improve the capacity of insulin to transport glucose from the blood stream to our body cells. They have a good diuretic effect and thus help to combat water retention. They are low in calories and give a high sense of satiety. For this reason, they are recommended for people with weight problems.
They are processed in our facility, at Via Einstein 31, Stanghella (PD) Italy, where they are weighted and packaged:
The packages are palletized based on the customer’s needs. We offer different types of carton sizes and colours. Customised labelling upon request.
