Lettuce, Gem Red is a good tasting, but more expensive artisan variety that adds color and flavor to our salads. See more about it below
More About Red Gem Lettuce:
We first encountered gem lettuce in our local supermarket as part of a 4-pack of petite lettuce from Artisan®. Red gem lettuce grows in broad compact heads with wide leaves, a crunchy texture with a sweet flavor, which makes a nice addition to our salads, including adding color. It also comes in a green variety. Mixing these two lettuces together and adding other veggies such as cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, and anything else your heart desires makes a great salad.
We could not find any specific nutritional information for gem lettuce, other than that a 3-oz. serving provides: 10 calories, 2 grams of carbohydrate (less than 1 gram of which is fiber), 1 gram of protein, provides 100% of daily vitamin A, 10% vitamin C, 2% calcium, and 4% iron.
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
