White Radish or Daikon (sometimes called Oriental radish winter radish) is a root vegetable similar in shape to a large carrot with a flavor that’s similar to a mild red radish. It’s grown in many Asian countries, and in Japan, it’s the most commonly eaten vegetable.
Daikon has a decent amount of nutrients. It has a high content of potassium–per 1 cup, it contains 263 milligrams of potassium (about 75% of the amount in a banana) and 25.5 milligrams of vitamin C (about half the amount of an orange). It also contains smaller amounts of folate, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.
