As part of the Research Spotlight series on WholisticMatters, “Phytochemical Characterization of Turnip Greens (Brassica rapa ssp. rapa): A Systematic Review” profiles the diverse phytochemical profile of turnip greens. This nutrient-dense crop is rich with phytonutrients like glucosinolates, phenolic compounds, and more. Turnip greens belong to the cruciferous Brassicaceae family and share many of same health benefits as other brassicas, like improved detoxification.

This infographic was created from research published in the 2021 article “Phytochemical characterization of turnip greens (Brassica rapa ssp. Rapa): A systematic review.” Researchers reviewed 18 high-quality studies detailing the chemical composition of turnip greens. They categorized 129 unique phytochemicals into four groups:

  1. Glucosinolates
  2. Glucosinolate-breakdown products
  3. Organic acids
  4. Polyphenolic compounds

Key flavonoids identified include quercetin, kaempferol, and isorhamnetin derivatives.
