White cabbage is for processing into sauerkraut, but also grown for the fresh market. It is one of the oldest types of cabbage. The cultivation takes place traditionally mainly in West Friesland, Noord-Holland, because no degradation occurs by clubroot. Our company is located in the heart of the cabbage growing area.
100g white cabbage contains about 63% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin K, and 61% of the RDA of vitamin C. These are extremely high values.

Vitamin B5 or pathoteen is present in cabbage with 5% of the RDA. Thiamine or B1 is for 4% in cabbage. There are other vitamins that are in all cabbage but with lower percentages than 3%.
