Iceberg lettuce has large, round and lightly packed heads of pale green leaves. It looks a bit like a white cabbage. It is crisp and succulent with a sweetish flavour. It stores well in the fridge for more than a week. Shelf life: 8 days if kept at max. 6 °C.
Iceberg is our all time favourite, even with children! Use on your subs, wraps, sandwiches and burgers. Hygienically grown in Hydroponic culture. Residue Free.
Depending on the variety, lettuce is an excellent source (20% of the Daily Value, DV, or higher) of vitamin K (97% DV) and vitamin A (21% DV) (table), with higher concentrations of the pro vitamin A compound, beta-carotene, found in darker green lettuces, such as romaine. With the exception of the iceberg variety, lettuce is also a good source (10–19% DV) of Folate and iron.
