Leaf vegetable - Wikipedia

Leaf vegetables, also called leafy greens, pot herbs, vegetable greens, or simply greens, are plant leaves eaten as a vegetable, sometimes accompanied by tender petioles and shoots.


Spinach, as an example of a leaf vegetable, is low in calories and fat per calorie, and high in dietary fibervitamin C, pro-vitamin A carotenoidsfolatemanganese and vitamin K.
The vitamin K content of leaf vegetables is particularly high, since these are photosynthetic tissues and phylloquinone is involved in photosynthesis. Accordingly, users of vitamin K antagonist medications, such as warfarin, must take special care to limit consumption of leaf vegetables.
