Celery is a green vegetable that grows as a bundle of crisp, fibrous stalks topped with leafy greens.
Celery is 95% water and 2% fiber, and is a source of vitamins K, B9, and B6, as well as potassium. The calcium in celery is highly bioavailable. Raw celery is rich in naturally occurring nitrates, though vitamin C slows its conversion to nitrites. See: Nitrates & nitrites.
Celery is an allergen capable of causing severe reactions which may lead to anaphylactic shock.
