The Nai Bai generally has a mild and sweet flavor, with its younger leaves having a tinge of mustardy flavor. A smaller variation of the Xiao Bai Cai, the Nai Bai is also softer and sweeter. Do not underestimate this little head of vegetable as not many vegetables can boast that it is both leafy and crunchy at the same time after cooking, but the Nai Bai most definitely can!
Being a variation of the Bok Choy, the Nai Bai has similar nutritional properties when consumed:
Vitamins – Like the Cai Xin, Kai Lan, and the Bayam, the Nai Bai is also rich in Vitamin A, C and K.
Minerals – The Nai Bai is rich in calcium, phosphorous, potassium, manganese, iron and magnesium. Potassium is an important electrolyte in the cell and body fluids that helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is required for the red blood cell formation.
Others – High in antioxidants, these compounds in the Nai Bai will help to protect against breast, colon, and prostate cancers. It can also help to reduce LDL or “bad cholesterol” levels in the blood.
