FAQs about romaine lettuce
It's safe to eat romaine lettuce as the recall for the affected batch from Salinas, California, is no longer for sale. You can buy the lettuce from grocery stores without a problem.
Romaine lettuce has a lot of nutritional value and is made up of mostly water. One serving of 70 grams of lettuce has 65 grams of water and contains vitamins A, C, K, folate, potassium, and beta-carotene. Antioxidants help the body to release free radicals that can build up due to natural metabolism and environmental factors. Potassium is a mineral that helps the muscles contract normally, while vitamin A helps with eye health. Vitamin A and C can also help cholesterol from building up in the arteries.
Once the leaves are long and slightly overlapping, they form a head that is six to eight inches long. Romaine lettuce takes about 70 days to mature but can be picked sooner if you prefer younger leaves. With some pruners, cut the head close to the stem about an inch away from the ground. This can also be harvested when the leaves are younger, and you can take the whole head of lettuce for tender leaves. If the head is cut an inch from the soil, the lettuce may start to grow again for a second harvest.
