Product Description: Organic Parsnips are root vegetables, much like carrots. In fact, Organic parsnips look very much like white carrots . They are great for stews and carrot style recipes.

Organic Parsnips are very healthy for you. They contain Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folates, potassium, magnesium and lots of fiber too. They've got 6-10g of carbs per half cup. The range is based on the type and how they're cooked. This is much better than many other veggies, and the nutritional benefit is well worth it! Did you know?

  • Our name comes from the Latin word ‘pastus’ meaning food
  • The Emperor Tiberius is said to have imported us from Germany where we grew along the banks of the Rhine River
  • In Tudor times in England we were a common ingredient in bread
  • We now grow wild in England and some parts of Asia.

Why Parsnips are Good to Eat

  • We’re a good source of vitamin C and niacin (vitamin B3) and we also provide some folate.
