Wild Leeks Nutrition Facts

Wild leeks are loaded with nutrition. For instance, they contain many of the same sulfur compounds as garlic, including allicin and kaemperol. Other sulfur compounds present in ramp extracts include cepaenes called alpha-sulfinyldisulfides and allyl-containing cepaenes known as 2-propenyl 1-(2-propenylsulfinyl) propyl disulfide.

Wild leeks also contain a large amount of antioxidant content, especially polyphenols, vitamin A, vitamin C, and selenium. They are sources of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates, as well as other nutrients like iron, chromium, calcium, folate, and choline.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of comprehensive data readily available on all the nutrients in wild leeks, likely because it is not a common vegetable. That being said, there are some figures out there. The following is a nutrition chart with information for a cup of raw wild leek, or 89 g of the vegetable.
