Infarm Kale

Kale

A member of the wild cabbage family, Kale has been cultivated in Europe since Ancient Greece and was introduced to the Americas in the 1600s.

Taste

Identified by sharp flavors that act as “chemical warriors” when chopped, cooked or chewed. Kale blends bitter tastes into a complex earthy and meaty flavor profile.

Nutrition

Packed with powerful glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds creating its aroma and somewhat bitter flavor.

Kitchen Use

With its strong aromatic scent and complex taste, Kale is a versatile mustard leaf perfect for everything from crispy Kale chips to stirfries to refreshing salads. Despite its bitter-tasting compounds, oven-roasting or slowly cooking the plant can bring out a nutty, popcorn-like sweetness.
