About This Food

Description

Parsnips are root vegetable and a cousin to the carrot.

While parsnips are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and folate, they are a high glycemic index food.

Because of this, they should be consumed in moderation, and with a healthy fat source, to ensure healthy blood sugar levels.
