It is also used as a traditional medicine in some cultures, with reported health benefits such as improved digestion and immune function.

🧾 Nutritional info

Katuk is a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It contains high levels of antioxidants and is particularly rich in vitamins A and C, as well as iron and calcium.

⚠ Important note

While eating Katuk in moderation is perfectly safe and nutritious, it is important not to eat it in excess. A dozen leaves in salad, yes, but a large Katuk-based salad every day might not be the best idea as it contains small quantities of a compound known as papaverine, when consumed in excess, it has been linked to lung damage.

❄️ How to store

It should be used within a few days of purchase, as it can wilt and lose its flavor and nutritional content quickly.
