To detoxify after Easter. Nutritional aspects
Radicchio can count on the one hand on low caloric contents (consisting of 90% of water) and on the other on a good dote of mineral salts (calcium, phosphorus, potassium), as well as fiber and vitamins. Its nutritional characteristics translate into good diuretic and detoxifying properties as well as - due to the presence of polyphenols - of antioxidant qualities.
Remember that, if eaten cooked, you can lose some nutrients (including vitamin C).
