Which is healthier: red cabbage or green cabbage?

Both red and green cabbages are incredibly rich in nutrients and I view both types of cabbage as unique foods that can make outstanding contributions to your Healthiest Way of Eating. Like all unique and nourishing foods, there are differences in the nutrients they offer. For example, some red cabbages contain almost twice the vitamin C as some green cabbages. Red cabbages are always richer in anthocyanins (flavonoid phytonutrients) that not only act as antioxidants but also function as supporters of the immune system. Green cabbages, on the other hand, have substantially more folate. Remember that many of the more subtle nutritional differences in cabbage depend on the specific variety. Even though cabbages can be generally divided into three types—reds, greens, and Savoy—there are many popular varieties of cabbage within all three general types.
