Asparagus, White

Aparagus, white is more eye-catching than green asparagus but not as nutritious.

When we first saw white asparagus in the market, it attracted our attention.  The first thing we did was compare the package nutrition information with that of regular green asparagus, and found that the white asparagus was less nutritious.  It was promoted as “gourmet white asparagus”, but after tasting it, we thought it would have better been promoted as “novelty white asparagus”.  It has an earthy taste with very little of the traditional asparagus taste.  It is probably best cooked and served in combination with green asparagus. See our asparagus recipe directory for helpful suggestions. We could not find complete nutritional information for white asparagus.
