What are the Properties of Italian Organic Artichokes?

The scientific name for the artichoke is Cynara Scolymus, and the plant has an herbaceous stem up to a metre and a half high. At the end of its long, wide leaves, the vegetable flowers, with a blue-purple corolla.

The artichokes change colour depending on how ripe they are, and generally only the top part of the vegetable is eaten, while the stem is removed.

The Violet Artichoke is distinguished by the peculiar purple colour of the inflorescence and by the green stem.

Artichokes contain a lot of water, about 91%. They also contains 5% of fibre and 2% of protein along with few carbohydrates.

They are also rich in mineral salts, potassium, phosphorus, sodium and vitamins A, C and E.

What are the Benefits of Organic Italian Artichokes?

If artichokes could win a price, they would for sure get the golden one!

In fact, artichokes are very precious for our entire organism. They bring many health benefits and are able to perform particular functions which we will explain in detail:

Artichoke is usually recommended in the diets of diabetics, anaemics and arthritics. In fact, it stimulates the production of bile, improving liver activity and accelerating renal purification.

It is a digestive and detoxifying vegetable, thanks to the presence of 'cynarin', an active ingredient that also gives artichokes their special bitter taste.

Cooked, raw, in 'pinzimonio', cut into slices or added in salads, boiled or grilled. On their own or in elaborate recipes, artichokes are as elegant as they are versatile!

For first courses they can be used to cook a delicious risotto or a delicate soup, but also for special and refined pasta dishes.

They can be also a delicious side dish for meat and fish, but you can also combine them with eggs or many other vegetables.

Ed infatti il Carciofo è un prezioso toccasana per tutto il nostro organismo. Apporta infatti tantissimi benefici al nostro corpo e svolge particolari funzioni che andiamo subito a vedere nello specifico:

  • Indicato nelle diete dei diabetici, degli anemici e degli artritici. Stimola infatti la produzione di bile, migliorando l'attività del fegato e accelerando la funzione depurativa renale. 
  • Digestivo e disintossicante, grazie alla presenza di cinarina, un principio attivo che svolge una funzione digestiva e disintossicante e conferisce anche quel particolare sapore amaro.

Conservation and use

Cotti, crudi, in pinzimonio, tagliati a fettine o ad insalata, bolliti, grigliati. Da soli o inseriti in elaborate ricette, i Carciofi sono tanto eleganti quanto versatili!
Per i primi possono essere indispensabili per risotti e minestre, ma anche per paste particolari e ricercate.
Per i secondi possono fungere da delizioso contorno in carni e pesce, ma anche con uova o uniti a tanti altri ortaggi.
Suvvia, rimbocchiamoci le maniche e corriamo in cucina a preparare! 


I nostri Carciofi Biologici Italiani durano dai tre ai cinque giorni in ambienti freschi e asciutti. Si dice che mettendo le estremità inferiori nell'acqua si possa farli durare più a lungo. Consigliamo sempre un consumo veloce, così da poter gustarla al meglio della sua maturazione. Se volete potete anche metterli in frigo nel cassetto delle verdure in un sacchetto di carta per massimo una settimana.
