The Radish Nutrition Facts Label Will Change the Way You Eat
The USDA and the Food and Drug Administration have approved the first batch of radish nutritional labeling for a new generation of corn.
The label will help people understand the nutritional content of the new variety, which is expected to be available by the end of the year.
The radish’s name means radish root in Arabic.
A small white box on the label will tell consumers the nutritional values of radishes, with an asterisk next to the word radish.
Radish varieties include Radish Lettuce, Radish, Radicchio and Radicata.
This year, the radish label is a bit different.
Radicachellia and Radicella radicachella, two varieties, have lower-than-normal yields of corn because of their ability to withstand frost, according to the USDA.
In the U.S., radish is the second most-common edible crop, behind corn.
