It is low in calories, fat and cholesterol free, high in fiber, and rich in antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and zinc. It is a great liquid to use in non-dairy smoothies, green smoothies and those that require a natural boost of sweetness.
