FAQs about white asparagus
The odor-changing effect of green asparagus is also evident in the white variety. Asparagusic acid is in both green and white asparagus, causing a breakdown in your digestive system that results in the sulfur odor in your urine.
Purple asparagus comes from various asparagus, while green and white are the same types, just grown differently. Purple asparagus is sweeter and nuttier in flavor than the other varieties.
Because the health benefits of white asparagus depend partially on how it is harvested and stored, there may be variations in the health properties of the one you buy. For example, if stored at a temperature higher than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the asparagus may have less ferulic acid, which can help reduce signs of aging. If you see white asparagus with a limp and weak stalk, there's a good chance it won't be as good for you as a firm, stiff asparagus due to a deficiency in ferulic acid.
