Eggplants are like potatoes in one respect. As long as you keep the fat off them, they’re a low-calorie food. An 84 gram serving (barely 3 ounces) has only 25 calories as well as 2 grams of dietary fiber, 5 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of protein. A serving also contains 2% of the RDA for vitamin C and iron.
Eggplant may have some beneficial effects on stomach cancer. It may help to lower blood cholesterol and counter the negative effects that fatty foods produce in the blood. Eggplant also acts as a diuretic.
Though commonly thought of as a vegetable, eggplant is actually a fruit, specifically a berry. There are many varieties of this delicious food, ranging in color from rich purple to white, in length from 2 to 12 inches and in shape from oblong to round.
