Chaya Spinach Fresh Leaves

Chaya, also known as Tree spinach or Mexican spinach, is a leafy green vegetable that is native to Mexico and Central America. With a slightly crisp texture, it offers a mild and slightly bitter flavor that is comparable to spinach or Swiss chard. It’s a nutritious and flavorful addition to any meal.

Always cook Chaya leaves. Do not eat uncooked leaves. Raw Chaya leaves contain hydrocyanic acid, a toxic substance that can make you sick. However, cooked leaves are safe to eat – in fact, once cooked Chaya is considered a superfood.

We take pride in providing organic produce that is free from harmful chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides. Our produce is carefully hand-picked and packed on the same day of delivery to ensure optimal freshness, flavor, and nutritional value.

🫕 Uses

There are many ways to cook Chaya, such as steaming, boiling, sautéing, or stir-frying. Once cooked, Chaya can be used in a variety of dishes, such as soups, stews, and casseroles, or as a side dish to accompany your main course. Always cook Chaya leaves. Do not eat uncooked leaves.

🧾 Nutritional info

Chaya is a highly nutritious vegetable that is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium, iron, and potassium. It also contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds

❄️ How to store

Chaya leaves should be stored in the refrigerator in a plastic bag or container with a damp paper towel to help preserve their freshness.
