We love Asparagus here at Ellwood Thompsons! It is great to know that something you love is great for your body. Asparagus is the leading supplier among vegetables of folic acid. A 5.3 ounce serving provides 60% of the recommended daily allowance for folacin which is necessary for blood cell formation, growth, and prevention of liver disease. Its wealth of nutrients, fiber and very low sodium and calorie content make asparagus a nutritionally wise choice. We have some beautiful organic asparagus on sale for $4.59lb. Stop by and grab a bunch while you can — they are going fast!
