How many calories in Red Cabbage? See below, the Red Cabbage calories for the different serving sizes. We provide you with the Red Cabbage nutrition facts and the health benefits of Red Cabbage to help you to lose weight and eat a healthy diet.

Cabbages get their color depending on the soil type. An alkaline soil produces a green-yellow Cabbage, whilst an acidic soil produces red leaves, due to a pigment called anthocyanin.

Red Cabbages can be cooked or eaten raw. When cooked they may turn blue, so consider steaming instead of boiling. The water will be blue underneath still but the cabbage should remain red. Only steam for a few minutes though, so it retains its crunchy texture.

Red Cabbage has more nutritional benefits than the green variety. It is full of Vitamin C to help your immune system and Vitamin K for healthy bones. Other Red Cabbage benefits include aiding your weight loss program as red cabbages are low in calories but full of fiber, so filling you up quicker. In addition, the anthocyanins are well-documented anti-inflammatory compounds.

Below we have two calorie tables for raw and cooked red cabbage. See our vegetable calories comparison chart to compare the calories in Red Cabbage with the other calories in vegetables.

We also have a nutrition table comparing the nutrients of raw red cabbage and when it's been boiled. Instead of boiling, consider simply steaming for a few minutes only.
