Rhubarb is a whole plant used in many popular dessert and jam recipes, but its benefits for calcium consumption are not as known. This food contains high amounts of calcium as well as fiber and other vitamins and minerals. One cup of rhubarb contains 105mg of calcium and recent studies have found that rhubarb can help with inflammation, immunity, and gut health. Of course, the most delicious way to eat rhubarb is in a fresh pie or a homemade tart, but other ways that I suggest preparing that includes less sugar is roasted with a little bit of seasoning or pureed in a smoothie with other fruits and vegetables.15 July 2021
