The caloric intake of cauliflower is very modest, as it does not reach 40 kilocalories per 100 grams. Its fiber content is one of its great nutritional qualities, along with its potassium, phosphorus and vitamin C content. No less important, is its high content of phytochemical elements that, due to their antioxidant nature, contribute to the prevention of some degenerative diseases and to stimulating the immune system.
