nutritional value per 100 grams:

    See also Chinese herbalism below for Chinese gender and Chinese flavor.


    Reason to choose organic:
    Celery has the number four (4) highest pesticide load of 45 common fruits and vegetables studied in 2006 by the Environmental Working Group and is therefore a prime candidate for switching to organic. The EWA explains, “While washing and rinsing fresh produce may reduce levels of some pesticides, it does not eliminate them. Peeling also reduces exposures, but valuable nutrients often go down the drain with the peel. The best option is to eat a varied diet, wash all produce, and choose organic when possible to reduce exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.”
    According to USDA and FDA tests on commercially grown foods collected between 2000 and 2005, celery has a 94.1% (percentage) of samples tested with detectable pesticides, a 79.8% (percentage) of samples with two or more pesticides, a 3.0 average number of pesticides found in a sample, an average of 0.413 parts per million of all pesticides found, and 30 different pesticides found in use growing celery. These toxic pesticides don’t apply to organic foods.


    Storage: Celery can safely be stored for more than a week.

    A dash of celery salt or black pepper can also improve the flavor of tomato juice. Fresh lemon juice, celery salt, and black pepper can be stirred into tomato juice with a celery stalk.

cautions and contraindications:

    Organic Labels: The Bush administration’s USDA has announced that they will help large American food corporations increase their profits by purposely deceiving the American public by putting non-organic foods into foods labelled as being organic. Under U.S. law, for foods to labelled as organic, crops must be grown without chemical fertilizers, sewage sludge, bioengineering, or pesticides and animals must be raised without antibiotics and growth hormones and given access to the outdoors. The USDA has decided that 43 non-organic ingredeients can be added to foods labelled as organic. To protest this decision, go to Organic Consumers Association. One of the non-organic ingredients is celery powder.
