About Us

 

Come and learn all about nutrition in vegetables! This website is designed by The World Vegetable Center's Team to publicly share our nutrition data and interactive tools for educational and research purposes. 

 

In our Phytonutrient Data section, you can find phytonutrient information of over 400 vegetable entries from around the world. The data are collected from over 15 years of analytical research conducted at the Center's nutrition laboratory. Plant information and recipes are included to broaden your knowledge and usage of the vegetables. 

 

The Interactive Learning section features informative and fun tools to apply nutrition information to real-life situations. Design your own nutritious home garden with the MyVegGarden.
