Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is a flowering plant valued for its leaves, which are high in nutritional value and deep green in color. It is extremely versatile and widely used in cuisines around the world.
Spinach ranks as one of the world’s healthiest vegetables, containing very high levels of vitamins A and K, manganese, folate and calcium, as well as relatively high levels of iron.
Spinach originated in ancient Persia, finding its way east to India and China during the first century A.D. It showed up in Italy later in that century, and finally spread more broadly through Europe during the 12th century.
When Italian aristocrat Catherine de’Medici became queen of France in 1522, she insisted that spinach be served at every meal, thus spawning the culinary term “Florentine” to describe foods made with spinach due to her birthplace, Florence.
Many Italian pasta dishes utilize a cheese filling. Whether it’s manicotti, ravioli or lasagna turn cheese filling Florentine with our organic spinach flake. Add only flavor, as the dried spinach hydrates adding no extra water to the cheese.
