Iceberg lettuce is one of the main constituents in salads and is known for its crunchy texture. It has comparatively less nutrients than the other greens that you may find in salads.
Iceberg lettuce is an excellent source of potassium and manganese, as well as a very good source of iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. It also contains traces of sodium, copper, and zinc.
Iceberg lettuce has a high water content and is very low in calories. Therefore, it is good for weight loss efforts.
